Favorite Podcasting App
I have been a Downcast user for years. I can't express how much I love this app. As far as I am concerned, this is one of the cornerstone apps for iOS. Gesture controls before they became mainstream,plus a huge depth of options and customization. The few times I have dealt with support, for the Mac version, they have been super responsive and helpful. They are constantly working to improve their apps. I would give them more money if I could.
Best $2 I ever spent
Apples piece of crap podcast app is a joke so I went searching for a new one. I was hesitant about paying for one, but this had good reviews and I went for it. It has tons of settings so you can customize basically anything you want. I have more than 10gb of podcasts on it. Constant updates as well, adding features, tweaking stuff and removing the few bugs it has. Could not recommend it more.
Quite simply the best podcast app there is. If you're using stitcher, delete it right now and shell out a couple of bucks for this app. So many customizable settings plus auto downloading which is awesome if you need to listen without a network connection. Great design, easy to use and simple to get started. If you listen to podcasts you need this app. Worth every penny.
