Bring back the “feed” tab

Loved the app until the last update. Now there isn’t any way to access a list of the most recent shows from podcasts I follow since the feed tab was removed. That makes the app virtually unusable unless I open each and every show to see what’s new. That’s not practical. Bring back the feed tab to give a list of most recent shows from subscriptions followed. That is far more important that an “organized” category menu under a search tab. Search is already available under the Discover tab. Put your organized categories under the Discover tab and bring back the Feed tab. With the Feed tab, I’d rate this app a 5/5. Without it, the app is useless if you follow a lot of shows and can’t even access the Feed list.

The more I use it, the less I like it. It’s easier to use the download section of the Library than it is to make a playlist. The playlists don’t auto play. However, I want the sorting to stay oldest-to-newest but it keeps changing back the other way, which messes up my play order. Also, there’s no option to have the download to delete after play and to remove it, I have to press a small check. And that can lead to pressing another button adding another unnecessary step.

GREAT searching feature

So many podcasts available to search by keywords (even if you’re like me and just have the idea of ‘spooky?’). Love the comment feature for when the hosts just can’t seem to think of the word or thing you’re shouting at them through your phone. All the updates so far have been noticeably better than the last, can’t wait to see what’s next!
