"You look like him," Bucky says. No prompting, no nothing. He just speaks, like this is a thing he does. "What?" Steve asks. He didn’t really hear it, too stunned by the fact that words were coming out of Bucky’s mouth to understand their meaning. "You look like him. So did Pierce." His voice is soft, gravelly from disuse. "Is that why they picked you?" Steve’s heart plunges like an elevator with the cables cut. “Buck, it is me.” The hard line of Bucky’s mouth softens just a little. “Sure,” he says.

Excellent video comparison of the best iPhone podcast apps, including Instapaper founder Marco Arment's new iPhone podcast client, Overcast. This short clip examines aspects of UI/UX in Overcast, Instacast, Downcast, Castro, Mocast, and PocketCasts, comparing elements like playback screen, scrubber design, discovery, subscription/episode management, playlists, etc. If you love podcasts and iPhone -- and who doesn't -- check it out. Personal note: PocketCasts is my favorite personally. I love the overall design, the features work for me. I wish it had Instacast's bookmark feature, and Overcast's Voice Boost and Smart Speed. But I love it still. Plus it offers easy export of subscriptions in OPML format, and has an iPad client with which it syncs wonderfully -- or at least much better than Apple's podcast app. Overcast is gorgeous though, as one would expect from the creator of an app like Instapaper. The design is very well done and the freemium route was an interesting choice, but makes it easy to try and get a feel for the app. You can try VoiceBoost and SmartSpeed for 5 minutes at a time, but the $4.99 in-app purchase will unlock these, cellular downloads, and more. It may give PocketCasts a run for its money (for me) in the near future, but for now, I still need syncing between iPhone and iPad podcast clients, and Overcast remains iPhone only at this time. Still, it's new and has time, and room, to grow (despite the competition). Also the app is honest and encourages you to try other competing apps, which is respectable, in my opinion. Try them all, like the make of this video did!
