Customer Reviews


While I can download podcasts no problem the app always crashes whenever I try to listen to them. Originally I found a fix where I would download the app every week to get my needed podcasts then delete it so I could play them under the "music" app. Well now Apple removed the ability to download the oldest compatible version of the app if you're not on iOS 7.0 or later which I can't get on my iPod, so now I can't even listen to podcasts. Why can't I just download them through the music app like I could years ago? This app doesn't work and forcing people to use it for podcasts was a terrible idea.


Crashes often, sometimes refuses to download or not play.


Often crashes. Podcasts frequently "unable to download" after nearly 99% completed. Randomly stops and restarts podcasts from the beginning. Had to remove it. Too frustrating.
