After many years it's still the best
I've been using Downcast for years. I've tried other apps including Apple's own. Downcast remains my favorite because of its extended feature-set. It's simple on the surface but if you want to dig deeper into options and customize your experience you can. The developer is quick to update too which is nice in a world where so many apps get abandoned support-wise.
Best podcast app available
I have been listening to podcasts since 2006 so I have tried almost every available app out there. This is my favorite by far. I've been using this for more than three years and have yet to find anything better.
One of the best apps
I seldom write reviews, but this is one I had to. THE best app for podcasts, without question, and one of the most feature-filled,well-thought out apps I have seen. Period.
