Still missing basic features since v7 upgradr

I know Pocketcasts got bought out, but please keep the old apps functionality for those of us who have paid and supported PC. Its hard to get through to devs and normally I’d find something better, but the old app was the best and I can’t find anything else to replace it.

Sonos integration

I only use Pocket Casts with my Sonos speakers, but instead of fixing bugs they are just introducing new ones.


Good, but...

If I listened to Podcasts with just my headphones, no question this would be the app of choice. However, I mainly listen to podcasts in my car and I'm not sure if I'm the only one experiencing intermittent cutout problems (play/ pause issue) when it is connected to the car audio via Bluetooth (preferred as it automatically connects and starts playing where I left off).

The podcast will start, play 1 second, stop, start again, play 1 second then stop and start and only then continue playing normally. Every time. (And that's if I pressed play on the phone BEFORE connecting to bluetooth). I had to switch back to Overcast because of this. I just used the agility select switch in the car to switch to Sport and because it uses the same system (the COMAND interface in Mercedes-Benz) it paused my podcast and wouldn't start again until I took my phone out of my pocket and pressed play.

Again, I could be the only one experiencing this but it was too much trouble. Sorry guys! Great app otherwise. Would have sent feedback through the app but I just went back to something I used before that is trouble-free for me.
