Advanced bookmarking function is my favorite feature
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.
Excellent - My Most Used App
Best audiobook/podcast player I've found. Lots of functionality. It's loaded with features, one of which I find particularly useful: the ability to load and play audiobooks consisting of multiple files within a single ZIP archive file. Also, I like being able to upload my audiobooks to the app using a web browser instead of Itunes. This app just keeps getting better and better. Definitely recommended.
Over all a decent app
Decent app. I listen to a lot of audiobooks. It does have a few quirks. Current version likes to jump back to where you started to listen when you pause and switch to another app (rather than where you paused) but it is still better than trying to listen to audiobooks through apple ibooks. Simple, straight forward and easy to use.
