    Pretty good, except that it doesn't download the podcast tags properly. Minor annoyance, but a pain when you are using the podcasts on another device (eg car headunit) Full Review

    Used to be a great app but recently has been full of bugs. Randomly shuts down if I pause an episode, won't recognize downloaded episodes, and a horrible static noise comes through my Bluetooth headphones at random intervals. After my last review I was told to contact the feedback email. Contacted the support email and they literally told me they have no idea what's causing my issues. Full Review

    Ventsyslav Raikov Published date: February 16, 2018

    Great app, a lot of features and customizations(maybe too much). What do you do when you find the current episode boring? There should be an easy way on the player/widget to easily skip to the next episode of the playlist and at the same time deleting/marking the current one as played. Full Review

    Leigh Sheridan Published date: February 13, 2018

    Used to work great. Never had an intuitive UI, but I could put that aside. Lately it crashes constantly, stops playing at random intervals, and sucks down battery life. That and the fact that just hovering your finger over an ad transports you to some website, and I'll be using a different platform. Too bad. Full Review

    Overall excellent. Had a couple of bugs with certain parts of casts repeating but was able to get around this. Ads are relegated to a tiny bar at the bottom of the screen so they are minimally intrusive. Search is excellent. Interface is intuitive and well designed. Top notch free app. *update: developer replied to my review and my minor issue is fixed completely using their suggestion. Changed from 4 stars to 5 for excellent product support and overall excellent design. Full Review

    Changing my review to one star. The dude who made it goes to EVERY SINGLE slightly negative review with a smarmy attitude. Nope nope, my app is perfect! Must be your phone! This is not just sour grapes, my initial review was 4 stars, as were many other high reviews. If he wants to stay on his high horse and blame others for the bugs in his app rather than own up to it being imperfect and attempt to fix them, that tells me he is not someone I want to support. Will be uninstalling. Full Review

    Priscilla M. Published date: February 18, 2018

    Not the most organized-looking podcast app. I only use it to listen to podcasts, not anything else, but wish it went from a black background to white background with an easier or cleaner looking way of organizing episodes for a podcast. It used to use up a lot of my battery because it continued to run in the background when I had an episode on pause, but I haven't noticed this issue as much with a newer phone. Full Review

    Ole n Published date: February 12, 2018

    Great app. I love the auto-delete feature after download, the easy search and especially the speed control and skip silence features. Best app for podcasts I could find. However, in more recent versions I've noticed that sometimes after stopping, seeking or forwarding the podcast starts to play from a wrong time. Usually from the start or a region close to the start. Seeking back to a point where everything worked only sorts this out when you go back to the first few minutes of the podcasts. It's really frustrating when you've listened to an hour of the show already and have to start over to get to the new content again. Full Review

    Dan Roth Published date: February 17, 2018

    It's ok. It's easy to get "lost" in the menus and screens, and it sometimes spontaneously stops playing. Podcasts do not reliably update automatically. Edit: I've tried other podcast apps, and came back to this one. The flaws are minor compared to others! Full Review

    I have used this app for years, but I often feel it layout it not very good. I use it because nothing better has come along. I am sure it would upset some of its users but I think the app is long overdue for a makeover. Full Review

    Jade Sheldon Published date: February 16, 2018

    I've tried a ton of podcast apps and this is my favorite, feature-wise. However, the connectivity issues are starting to become impossible to deal with. Playback often stops randomly and won't reconnect, no matter what I do, for several minutes. I might have to switch to something else until this is resolved. :( Full Review

    Published date: February 11, 2018

    The only podcast app you should use. Obviously it downloads episodes automatically, but also deletes episodes once you've listened to them for easy cleanup. The playback speed feature is AWESOME! Means I can play episodes faster to get through more of them in the same time. Full Review

    Elle Keener Published date: February 18, 2018

    How do you get podcasts to play one after the other? Annoyed with having to pull my phone out after every episode. EDIT: Thank you for your help. It is now working flawlessly. I have upped the review to 5 stars. Full Review

    If I don't use this App for a while I removes all my subscriptions. Which is extremely annoying. Will have to look for a new App that won't do that. Full Review

    Evolution - Jeff Published date: February 12, 2018

    Happy with this app. I've been using it for a few weeks now and it checks all the boxes, most importantly, it pauses while the GPS gives directions and then starts again the moment the directions are done interrupting. Full Review

    Published date: February 15, 2018

    Although I managed to organize my playlist the way I wanted, the default playback settings are incredibly unintuitive and clunky. The list goes from newest to oldest, which I understand, but it plays like that no matter what unless you make a playlist and organize it by date. It would be nice to have a simple "start from the beginning" feature. Full Review

    Chantel Greene Published date: February 15, 2018

    I used to love this app on my old phone, but now no matter how I change the settings I can't get episodes to download directly to my playlist. I copied my husbands settings exactly but still have to go to recent episodes, download them, then go to download episodes, then que them up. It also makes a terrible static noise sometimes that is very loud and starteling. Full Review

    Regina Drago Published date: February 14, 2018

    I love this app... But recently, its been crashing on me... And its not only me. My husband uses the app and it crashes on both of us mid podcast! Its a big downer for me because I binge on podcasts at work... (Im a driver.) Can you guys fix this? Once fixed rating will definitely change. Full Review

    Used to be great. Constantly crashes now. Several comments echo this and instead of fixing the developer just responds to everything like "you should have told me", we are telling you dummy. Full Review

    The navigation is wonkey, and search feature is difficult to use, needs major design updates, it's not user friendly, but there isn't a lot of andriod apps for podcast. The app design hurts my eyes. Episodes don't display in order and diffcult to bookmark. Full Review

    Has a lot of options, but has a lot of issues with the podcast freezing. I listen to podcasts all day every day at my job and it freezes every hour or so in the middle of listening. Sometimes more. Full Review

    Decent podcast app. Has all the podcasts I listen to, but doesn't have all the functionality of google play podcast, but that app was messing up so I switched to this one Full Review

    Mike Wilson Published date: February 14, 2018

    I've tried all of the podcast apps. This one is by far the best option for several reasons. This app has the best layout, there are very rarely any bugs, this developer frequently updates it, and this developer provides support that's well above average. Full Review

    Toastee Published date: February 13, 2018

    Decent app, although some podcasts require you to download some episodes, and the ui feels cluttered. I would recommend pocket casts if you can afford it, or player FM if you want to go the free route. Full Review

    Good app, doesnt crash. Only complaint is the downloading portion. The podcasts seem to double up, between downloaded and streaming. Not too sure how to prevent that. Full Review

    Wyn Termute Published date: February 17, 2018

    I'm not looking for anything this complicated, because I literally only listen to one podcast. If you have many podcasts, or love micromanaging your apps, you can download this. It's not for me, but it might be for you. Full Review

    Bert Drummond Published date: February 12, 2018

    Great app. I used Overcast on my iPhone before switching and while this isn't quite as clean it still has many of the same features. I went through about 4 different apps and settled on this one which provides the best interface. Full Review
