The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is great for listening to podcasts, and DoggCatcher is a great way to do so. Once you subscribe to the podcasts of interest, the app downloads new episodes when they appear and handles playback simply. You can incrementally speed up the playback to get through long podcasts is much less time.
DoggCatcher has a good library of podcasts to help you find what you like, and you can search for specific shows right in the app.
In addition to handling podcasts nicely, the app can handle RSS news feeds, too. I've never used it for that, preferring to use it as my podcast app of choice.
This app originally appeared on iOS and has now evolved on Android so the current app is top-notch. Flipboard builds a news magazine based on your preferences. The 8-inch display of the Note 8.0 is perfect for flipping through lots of content in Flipboard.
A nice feature is the ability to add your Twitter timeline and Facebook news feed to Flipboard. Flipping through updates from friends is enjoyable on the Note 8.0.
The social network from Google is worth mentioning in this collection as using the app on the Galaxy Note 8.0 is very nice. The animation effects used by the app are great on the fast Note 8.0 and it's a great experience using Google+.
This app is so good on the Note 8.0 I am using Google+ more than I have in the past.
