I use this app on a daily basis and have done so for the past year or so. I find the automatic download function incredibly easy to set up and use, any podcast i've searched for has always been there and the option to have individual settings per podcast is brilliant! I've seen complaints about the sync function, but as I only listen on my iPhone i've never really experienced it, however every other function works perfectly. Easily the best purchase i've made on the app store!

Best Podcast App out there


Use this every day, does everything I want and I've tried many on iOS. Easy to use, nice UI (even has a recent touch up) and stable. Highly recommended
