    Tim Ryan Published date: February 2, 2018

    As others have noted, the navigation takes some getting used to, but the app does a lot & that's the price you pay. .. ..have used it for a while. ..i notice that the developer is regularly updating and improving. ...keeps getting better. ... =============================== I wrote my review a while ago and since have tried several other podcast players on a few different android devices, and hands down podcast republic is the best , most reliable, player out there... spend a few minutes getting used to the navigation and I think you'll be impressed.

    Back-up does not work, opml import looses tags. Not recognized as a media player by Android any more. Otherwise is cool. Suggestion for making seek more easy: -longer multi-line / circular seek-bar -show waveform -tap / long press etc. while screen off to temporarily raise playback speed. Full Review

    It was OK. Plays podcasts. However when playing in the background, there is no quick access to press pause etc, you have to install a widget or open the app. Would be useful to have something in the notifications tab at tge top of the phone. It is also doesnt have a very good search or browse functionality Full Review

    Not the prettiest app but it simply works. Once you know where everything is this is a low maintenance app that even helps handle limiting storage for you by removing old downloads from your storage when you download new things. I had tried many other apps, many that looked much nicer and many people sweat by... Yet here I have returned for a low fuss easy listening experience. Full Review

    Please stop changing buttons. The alarm function is awesome, sure, but it just lost my favourite function. When I play games on my phone, it now stops. I used to be able to play games and listen to podcasts, but it pauses when I start a game. I can't find a way to fix that in settings. Full Review

    Bravo. A lot of complicated stuff, but it gets the basics right where so many others fail. 1) You can read a full episode description from the main screen 2) You can clearly see what's downloading, downloaded or queing. 3) You can remove listened to episodes from the main list 4) You can choose the time of your updates. Exactly what I've been looking for. Thank you. Full Review

    This app has everything you could want for listening to podcasts. It has half dozen features (% completion, auto-resuming where I left off, easy to delete listened-to podcasts or hoard hours of podcasts for playlisting) I didn't even realise I needed. Full Review

    Easy to use, reliable app. Especially like the fact you can decide how long/how many episodes you want to play for-handy if you fall asleep whilst listening to a show last thing at night! Full Review

    Marcus Fernandes Published date: January 28, 2018

    I've used this app for over 2 years and it keeps on getting better. I never give anything 5 stars but this time I will, as I know the app will just keep on improving, as it has over the years I've been using it. Now that synchronising between devices works better than before so I can start on my phone and move over to my tablet almost seamlessly, this is the only podcast app you will ever need. Full Review

    LOVE the app! One of my absolute favourites... Keep up the great work, PR! My only concern (and this is no fault of the app) is that I don't really understand the "episodes" concept... Perhaps someone could explain that to me - thank you! Full Review

    The app is more stable on newer versions of Android vs older versions. Have this app on both a Samsung S4 and a pixel 2 - the sound will drop on the S4 occasionally, but no such issue with the pixel 2. Overall, it's a good app that has a decent UI. Full Review

    Has a fantastic selection of podcasts in the browse section and you can search for any existent podcast. One other feature I like is the full screen widget. I have been using this app for about four months and have never had an issue. Full Review

    Hands down best podcast app. I've gone through a few looking for the perfect fit and this has all they features I need. Categorizing the browsing of more content can be improved but I still love it Full Review

    Jordan Allumbaugh Published date: February 13, 2018

    I love the app and have used it for years. I have never minded the navigation, except after updates when I need to relearn it. The only issue I've ever had was after a recent update (not sure what the date was). Since this update, whenever a podcast ends, there is almost a 100% chance it will freeze my phone up so I can't receive calls, texts, alarms, nothing. The only fix is to hold the power button which lets me restart my phone. Unfortunately, the main time I listen to podcasts to completion is over night, and since it freezes my phone, my alarms for work don't go off in the morning (oops). I have a Moto z phone, just bought it brand new last year. Wanted to give you guys a heads up if you hadn't had this bug reported. Never had an issue with my other apps either, but maybe it is just my phone Full Review

    I've been trying podcasts players for a while and I found on this one the best subscription and download management for Android. Skipping intro and play speed manageable helps a lot to be able to listen all mine. Full Review

    Not the best looking app I've ever used but they try with frequent changes. None of tjat matters to be as long as it works well and it does. Like that I can get fat burning man pod cast on it. Full Review

    Had to change my 3 star review to 1. Over the past month this app has used almost 1/4 of my mobile data with it set to wifi only. Do yourself a favor and get a better podcast app that doesn't chew up your data. Full Review
