Beautiful but 2 feature requests
This is one of the most beautifully designed apps on the store. It takes a little bit to get used to all the shortcuts but it’s definitely worth it in my opinion. There are, however, three minor features missing that I think would make this app perfect. The first is something that I have been looking for in a podcast app for a while- autoplay from the most recent podcast with unlistened episodes when the queue (or playlist as it’s called in this app) is empty. This used to be on the native podcasts app but apple took it out for some reason. The second is a quick option to swipe right on an episode to add it to the playlist. I know you can swipe left and then tap the button, but that’s pretty slow- and it really adds up when you’re scrolling through your podcasts to build a queue to listen to. The last one is the ability to organize your grid of podcasts. By default, it’s done alphabetically, but I would like to drag my most listened to podcasts to the top. Overall though my experience with this app is amazing.
Great App with Feature Request
Love the app. Super fluid and unique interface after you go through the walkthroughs. There is great built in utility and customization at the same time. If there is anything I would like to see in a future update, it would be a simple fast forward/rewind set of buttons (5, 15, 30 second intervals) on the playlist screen. Even a gesture would do the trick! I would just love to see a quick fix for scrubbing through an episode without having to drag to a specific second-interval. Otherwise a fantastic experience!
Hard to navigate, flawed
I want to like this app and give it a reason to use over the vast amount of other podcast players available, but it gets one of the most basic things wrong. There seems to be a flaw with the app saving your place on a cast. I have had most of my podcasts skip backwards a good ten minutes when I pause them and come back later.
The second thing wrong for me is the interface. It is beautifully minimal, but unfortunately sooo minimal I frankly don't understand where to go. Very frustrating.
The episode position problem will be fixed on next update. Thanks for your feedback to keep improving the app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
