A clean, mean podcatcher, Podkicker is clutter-free from a design standpoint. Unfortunately, it's also somewhat clunky and hard to figure out. For example, when subscribing to a new feed, you have to refresh your channel list--and a pop-up window comes up to tell you that it is indeed refreshing. Podkicker is not without its minimalist charm, but it feels as if it's still a few updates away from becoming a favorite.
Price: Lite version, free; Pro version, about $3
