Glitches cost it a star

If this app consistently worked the way it is supposed to I’d give it 5 stars, but a couple of annoying glitches cost it a star.

1. Downloads of episodes rarely start automatically. They just sit in the download queue until you click on the queue, Pause it, then Restart it.

2. Syncing with Downcast on my other devices is still unreliable in the current version. Every few weeks syncing stops and I have to clear the sync settings and re-check them.

No longer works.

This app is no longer working. It does not find new episodes, the start/end time feature doesn’t work. All works well with my iPhone though. This app used to be very good, but it’s gone down hill very quickly.

Downgraded my rating to one star. I’ve contacted their support and get no response. I even went on their facebook and no response there either. If I could give 0 stars I would since this app does not work.
