Customer Reviews

Lost all my data

I was a regular user of Downcast until a bug in the previous update caused it to fail to launch. I was told by customer service that the only fix would be for me to delete and reinstall the app, and that because I hadn’t synced to iCloud, I would lose all my subscriptions, listening history, etc. Downcast doesn’t use the backups to iTunes which I had relied on. So, I lost all my data and rebuilt my subscriptions from scratch. This latest update required me to delete and reinstall AGAIN and I've discovered that iCloud only synced once at the moment I first set it up. All my subsequent changes are lost. Again. So iCloud Sync is broken, too.

Last update broke video podcasts

This is, hands down, my favorite and most-used app. It's full-featured and I love it. Until the latest update. Now, when watching a video podcast, every time something overlays the screen (a notification, control center, etc), the screen goes black and won't come back, even when the notification is dismissed. The only fix is to stop the podcast and re-start it...until it happens again with the next notification. If/when it gets fixed, this is a 5-star app. As is, though, it's barely usable.

Love this app!

I love this app's functionality & ease-of-use so much. I am a podcast junkie, and tend to listen to a lot of independent, lesser-know podcasts. This app is so easy to use. I don't know why it took me so long to discover the playlist function, but I'm even more delighted with the app since then! It's great to be able to simply start a playlist & catch up on a bunch of podcasts at one go.
