One of the best, but still has syncing problems
Downcast is still one of the most full-featured, quality podcast apps on the market. This is the power-user tool you’ve been looking for. This trend continues in this recent release, as even more features have been added (like Picture-in-Picture support).
Unfortunately, I cannot give it five stars because there are still lingering syncing issues between multiple devices and/or their Mac app. The developer keeps working on it… hopefully he will kill the bug(s) soon. Otherwise this is a great app and worth supporting.
When Ignoring becomes a compliment
I say this because this app just plain works and I don't even think about it. I've been using it for several years I sync it between two phones and an iPad. iCloud sync can sometimes be a bit flaky but I think it works better now than it ever has. Every now and then some other podcast app catches my fancy for a few days but I always come home when I see how it just doesn't compare. Top on my list is the ability to switch from video to audio seamlessly. Love it
iOS & MacOS iCloud Sync Not Good, Otherwise Great App
I’ve tried pretty much every podcast app out there and IMHO Downcast is by far the best option as a standalone app. I also purchased the MacOS version, also great. What isn’t good is when you attempt to hook them up to iCloud to sync between the 2. Even if it works at first, eventually something happens and podcast subscriptions begin to disappear. Not a huge deal to add them back, however, I’ve lost some obscure ones that I can’t recall the details of so therefore I can’t find them to re-add them.
I’ve given up on sync and shut that part off, now I use them separately on my MacBook and iPhone.
