Best Podcast App That Fits Most of My Needs

Update to my update: I downgraded to 4 stars because of Downcast’s clunky interface. I tried Overcast again and found the newest version to be a better fit for my workflow with its dark interface and better control over podcast priorities. Downcast was taking too long to check my 60 to 70 feeds and it took too many clicks to go between the now playing screen and my playlist.

Update: A few weeks ago I gave this app a low rating because it couldn’t read my iTunes playlists. After struggling with the hot mess that Apple made of the stock app and trying nearly every other third party podcast app, I find the Downcast meets most of my needs. Downcast in conjunction with the Mac app pretty much means I don't have to mess with iTunes anymore and after proper setup I can have my daily playlist automatically sorted and ready for me with minimal manual adjustment.

I finally can wrap my head around the concept of direct downloads completely untethered to my Mac which means I can update my playlist away from home if needed.

A few of my favorite features:
O The ability to stay on while plugged in
O Gestures to control pausing,and skipping
O a volume slider on the player interface
O podcast priority levels

Great app and good for podcast integration just wish it had a couple features from me

Instead of downloading the episodes I wish I could just stream them all that way I could keep space on my phone for apps and it wouldn’t take up oh I don’t know 12 to 15 GB in podcasts of course I am a podcast fanatic and subscribe to over 100 yeah I know but some of them are only out once a month and some haven’t been updated in years so I need to pair it back a little bit but what I don’t like is that downcast download several episodes at a time of different podcasts not just the most recent

Great for commuting

My needs are simple: I listen to a few podcasts, some having multiple segments per day, and queue them up to listen in my car. I’ve been annoyed with Apple’s poor built-in Podcast app for a while, but the latest iOS upgrade finally made Apple’s app completely unusable and unsafe while driving—no more “mark as played”, no continuous play, and no way to easily group unplayed segments. Downcast restored that functionality and offers much more. Listening during my commute is a pleasure again. I should have switched years ago.
