The unimprovable day to resolve health problem is before any visible sign appears. Actually there isn’t anything you can’t purchase on the Internet anymore. Whereas erectile dysfunction is more common among older men, that doesn’t something you simply have to live with. What about “canadian pharmacy cialis 5 mg” and “cialis canadian pharmacy“? In our generation, there are divers options for those ones who suffer from erectile disfunction. You may have heard about “canadian pharmacy online cialis“. More data about the matter available at “canadian pharmacy cialis 20mg“. Why it happen? Can sexual disorders in men be prevented?

How To – Listen to Podcast at 2x speed – Android

Podcasts are an outstanding source for finding new interesting technologies and ideas for work and life. What I love most about them though is that you can do it in moments where you literally have no other option, say in the car or metro or by walking your dogs.

Has it ever happened to you that you are listening to a podcast and you get bored or it just isn’t fast enough. I sure know this feeling. Podcasts very often have a fairly high signal to noise ratio and very often only a small part is interesting. Skipping parts is very tedious and somewhat negates the advantages of this hands free activity. Another favorite productivity hack of mine is how to speed up YouTube videos.

Listen to a podcast at 2x speed to the rescue

Enough intro, let me show you my setup to listen to Podcasts at 2x speed on Android. Here is what you will need:

DoggCatcher (Free/Premium/~ 3 USD)

Presto Sound Library Open Beta (~ 6 USD)

It isn’t quite straight forward what you have to do so setup your Podcast for 2x speed listening, so I will walk you through it.

Setup Listening to a Podcast at 2x speed

  1. Install DoggCatcher via Google Play Store
  2. Install Presto Sound Library Open Beta via Google Play Store
  3. On your Android device: Setup Custom variable audio speed in DoggCatcher
    Go to: DoggCatcher -> Settings -> Audio Player -> Variable Speed enabled and tick the box
  4. Setup your custom speed in  DoggCatcher -> Settings -> Audio Player ->Custom variable speed to 2.0
  5. Set your player to 2x speed

Setup Listening to a Podcast at 2x speed visual setup

  1. Install DoggCatcher via Google Play Store
  2. Install Presto Sound Library Open Beta via Google Play Store

Tips

  • If the variable play speed doesn’t show up, you may need to restart your phone
  • I personally prefer 1.8 speed. At 2.0 some guests on podcasts are a bit too fast for me while driving
