Customer Reviews

It’s okay, but only because I have it on iOS

If I wasn’t already in the Downcast eco-system with my iOS devices, I don’t know I could recommend the OSX version.

There continue to be sync issues, especially when I forget to run Downcast on my Mac for a while. Podcasts and episodes I’ve deleted on iOS come back, forcing me into a time consuming “sync cycle.”

Major functionality is there though and works relatively well (when it is working). Like I said, if you have the iOS versions there is some value here. If not, I can’t say I would recommend it.

Unable to add/play podcasts

When control clicking a podcast
then selecting any of the many
options:

"subscribe/save/mark for streaming/play"

only works once or not at all then fails on
subsequent tries on other podcasts.

This makes adding/playing podcasts unusable.

Program has not crashed but is unusable.

I hope the developer fixes this soon!!!
