Diceke ,

No longer functional

Stuck in a perpetual state of queued podcasts, but never actually connecting. Could switch to streaming, but prefer not have separate settings for my mac and iOS devices.
There goes $10. I guess it's in support of the iOS app now...

Sync Erased everything on the iPhone

Happy user of the iphone version for years, but within a few minutes of installing the mac version, the sync had erased EVERY PODCAST on the phone.

Macishman ,

No longer works

Warning. This app no longer works for me either on the iPhone or the Mac. It increases the download count, but never downloads. Developer is non-responsive. Avoid.
