Time buttons too small
I do love the app however after this last update the time buttons to skip forward /backward became even smaller. I drive while listening and it makes it even harder to skip while driving. Would be nice if there was a "driving" mode display with large buttons. I also had some issues with the next podcast not being heard when it was finished with the previous episode and showing that its playing. I had to disconnect usb to my car radio then reconnect and hit play again. Thanks when you fix these. Otherwise works well
Only Podcast App You Will Ever Need...Seriously
If you listen to podcasts with any frequency, even just a few times a month, then Downcast will quickly become an indispensable part of your life.
I have paid for maybe 3 apps in the 6 years I've had an iPhone. I was hesitant to pay for Downcast and wanted to use a free service, only all the free apps for podcasts are unusable. I took the plunge and I definitely got a good return on the investment.
You can easily search for podcasts, set timers, view massive caches of prior episodes, slow or speed up the sound, and easily skip forward and back by all the right increments. The interface is clean, easy to use, and you can customize each podcast to your playback and storage specifications for that show.
In short, this is the only podcast app you will ever need and it's the only one you should have. Great work!
The best podcast app there is
Excellent app. However, the newest version added an 'action' button next to the skipping time buttons. Please move the action button somewhere else!! I frequently use the 30 second and 2 minute skip buttons and they are now so small on my iPhone 5s that I usually accidentally hit that action button. Please return the skip buttons to their old size or even make them bigger! Thanks. T
