Great library of podcasts
This app has a great selection of podcasts, quick play, and I love how it bookmarks for picking up where you left off later. I also really dig the design and layout. The navigation, though really simple, is a bit confusing. Once you get three levels deep (home/category/show) you cannot navigate back to the previous screen— the category list. You have to skip 2 levels back up to home. This is a bit frustrating when attempting to browse different shows in a given category. Also, the description mentions that you have the ability to create lists of your favorite shows, but I don't see that option; I'm assuming this is achieved by managing the Recent list under the Now Playing section.
Overall a great app; could easily be a premium app with a little bit of UI work and a couple of more features.
If you want only one podcast app, this is it!
And even if you didn't care how many podcast apps you have, you still need to have this one! The selection of podcasts far exceeded my expectations. The player options are great and memory of your activity totally blows Apple's podcast app out of the water--which isn't all that hard. The only thing I could complain about is when you navigate back, it takes you to the home page regardless of your previous screen. An odd oversight, but considering the app as a whole, still deserving of five stars.
Good, but crashes
I downloaded this app a week ago to listen to my favorite NPR show, Radiolab. The app is great, downloading podcasts while you have service so you can listen even when you don't (I.e. On the subway). The only problem is the app has started crashing. I rebooted it, and my phone, several times to no avail. I ended up having to delete and reinstall it. It works ok now. I deducted one star for that reason.
