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

Simply Fantastic

I have found no flaws in this app, and I have been using it literally every day for over a year and a half. It's feature-packed, easy as pie to navigate and use, and never, ever short circuits, unless some "native" iOS apps-- I'm looking at you podcast app. Some apps really are t worth the money. This app is a steal at just about any price under $9.99, especially if you listen to more than one podcast. In short, it's simply fantastic.
