Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
