ARLINGTON, Va., March 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- After four weeks on the market and thousands of user downloads, Playapod, a new mobile podcast application, has been selected as a featured app by the Google Play Store.
Seamlessly syncing podcasts directly to the cloud, Playapod allows for immediate playback across multiple operating systems and devices. Developed by TMSOFT, a Northern Virginia-based software developer of mobile applications for smartphones, the new mobile app was designed to simplify the lives of frequent podcast listeners.

"A front page listing on the Google Play Store is very exciting and my team has been working around the clock to make sure Playapod is in great shape and our cloud syncing platform can scale to meet new demand"
Why is Moore so confident? Well, if posted public reviews from users are any indication, his product has already turned head ... and ears.
