Advanced bookmarking function is my favorite feature

Bluew2040

I tried several different podcast apps and this one best fit my needs.
The most important feature I was looking for was an advanced bookmarking function. As part of my studies, I collect segments of podcasts for future reference, so being able to mark the podcast name, episode, start time, and end time was the most critical. What was also important was the ability to export the bookmarks to a NON-PROPRIETARY format so I can process the information afterwards. This app can export to CSV... perfect. I use this app more than everything else on my phone.
A recently added feature, "Newest Downlaoded"/"Oldest Downloaded" under the play order priorities, is extremely valuable at keeping podcast listening truly hands-free when driving.

Perfect for cross-OS imports

This app is truly extraordinary. I have an iphone and my computer runs linux. This combination is sometimes difficult. This app makes it easy. I own non-audible audiobooks on my computer, and all I want is to listen to them on my iphone without passing them through itunes. Almost no app seems to be able to handle this simple task. But not only can Bookmobile import audiobooks from other apps like dropbox, but moreover IT CAN IMPORT DIRECTLY FROM MY BROWSER ON MY COMPUTER. This may be the single most useful feature I have ever encountered in an app. The interface itself is perfect. Simple and intuitive, difficult to mess up. Bookmobile, you got this one right. Highly recommend.

Good but quirky

jemkeith

This is a 4 star app, but the lack of support knocks off a couple of stars.
The app is good, but does have enough bugs that I'm looking for something else.
It has a lot of problems with losing your location in the book, starts playing randomly after you pause it and worst of all, the developer pretty much doesn't care. I reported the first 2 issues to them a couple of months ago and then they responded to me telling me that it has to be my phone since no one else has reported these issues. The same issues that are in several other reviews. So when the app works, it's pretty good , but if the quirks bother you, don't expect any support.
