My smartphone is the main gadget I carry with me yet it is often under utilised.

Fortunately I got started with using Stitcher Radio recently so I can benefit more from having such a cool piece of technology in my pocket.
 
Stitcher Radio is an app which draws on your listening preferences and provides fresh playlists of podcasts to listen to - whenever you can find a moment to listen. The Stitcher Radio database of shows includes content from both dedicated podcast producers and radio stations. There is a huge amount of international content but some Kiwi shows can be found too.
 
If you're going to try Stitcher Radio it's worth noting it streams live rather than just downloading podcasts when you're connected to Wi-Fi (as is common with podcast apps). This means if you're likely to eat through your mobile data allocation quicker than you would otherwise.
 
Whilst the Stitcher app has been available for some time, an updated iPhone version has launched in recent days. The update provides a special car mode to iPhone users. It's likely the simpler car interface for drivers will come to Android users in the not too distant future.
 
Currently available primarily on iPhone, iPad and Android as a free download.

Stitcher Radio picked by Gorilla Technology's Paul Spain, host of the NZ Tech Podcast.
