Almost the best podcast app - needs Carplay!

Other than not supporting CarPlay yet, I love the way this app works. It's logical to use. While playing podcasts, you double tap and they pause double tap again and they resume. You can use two fingers to jump ahead 30 seconds, or one finger to jump ahead 15 seconds. Anyway it's a great app, and I recommend that everybody try it out. Hopefully it will have CarPlay support soon.

Best podcast app 😎👍🏻

Works great on my iPhone XS max running iOS 12 and Pad.

Thanks for the update I love the Siri shortcuts.
You can customize all your Podcasts to play with a Siri voice command of your choosing
Bravo 👏🏻 Love this update

This is a very solid app
The person who makes this app updates it often and does an amazing job.

I have been using this app for a long time and think it's the best
I really like the addition of dynamic text as I use that feature to make the font size large in the accessibility settings on the iPhone and iPad.

Btw, I found out I can change the artwork on each podcast. I can pick a photo on my iPhone to add as the photo I will see when I play the podcast Very 😎
I have tried the top podcasting apps and I prefer this one the best.
One of the great things about this app is you can really customize this app with a lot of settings, so you can tweak it just the way you like it and you can use gestures.
With gestures you can easily jump backwards, forwards, pause, etc. with the flick of a finger or double tap anywhere on the screen to pause. It's especially helpful when you're doing other things like driving, brushing your teeth, etc.

Some gestures you can do with this app are the Leo where you do an L or a reverse L to skip ahead or back 2 minutes. Swipe left or right with one finger to go 30 seconds ahead or back. Doing a two finger swipe goes backwards or forwards 1 minute.
Double tap to play or pause. There is even a gesture to mark as played, which I enjoy doing 😉

I tried downcast and really tried to like it but I find it very unintuitive, and the way it's organized is not really to my liking.

Also this app developer is very responsive. If you have a question or need help, he will get back to you via email from the help button on the bottom. Although within the app you can tap on help and find a lot of information on how to use the app etc. I would suggest looking at that first, cause I found that many of the answers are in there.
