This App Should Listen To It’s Users

This App is so great yet it falls short of being game changing.

Features like episode specific search make it hard to find more tailored content and the biggest let down is that although they allow settings for those wanting to fall asleep, they have missed a golden opportunity by failing to add any waking up features such as a morning podcast alarm with a slowly rising volume.

On Twitter they have said they do not make an alarm clock yet they have clearly embraced the idea of their product being a pseudo white noise machine, which one might argue is far less respectful.

It would be a beautiful thing to have Pocket Casts be apart of it’s user’s morning routine with an easy feature addition, but clearly they do not want the functional technology that they have developed to be used in a functional and engaging way.

They do not want to seem to give consumers what they truly want.

Used to be great

I used to love pocket casts. It was intuitive, easy to use and bug free. An update every couple of months an app should be. Now, the app is just confusing. Where is the “keep X number of downloads before deleting function” and swiping to marks as played and delete.
I have no idea why the developers decided to change the app...To give people a choice, a legacy version would be great!

Please bring back the old player overlay

Do notttttttt like the new player overlay, miss the larger target buttons and playback speed button (please bring it back). Given how important how quickly you can play episodes is this a surprising omission.... additionally the skip forward/back buttons must be one of the most used features yet now you need a microscope to try and hit target (not friendly to people with disabilities or sight issues).

Finally, onscreen volume control is still a missing feature and desperately needed.

Please fix and stop tinkering with a winning formula, muscle memory and familiarity is what locks users to an app like this.

BYE BYE, moving to CASTBOX!!
