Absolutely the Best Podcast Download Player

ach1302

I'd owned this for years, with every update it keeps getting better. The best feature is the flexibility it has to subscribe to podcasts and choose whether to download (for off line playback) or stream (to save memory on videos.) Also, it allows the user to set the number of episodes to download and save. I love how it can keep and save the episodes state between devices. You can set global download settings and still able to create individual setting for specific podcasts. I sync and download every morning before going to work. Supports multiple lists with filters so I can play all downloaded podcasts or audio only, etc.

Update:
I listen quite often using the AirPod which I absolutely hate the user interface, it is a pain to control. I like the ability to control playback using the Apple Watch. This app supports the Apple Watch, it could use more improvements. It does not, as far as I can tell, the ability to control the volume or have the ability to skip the current podcast. I have to switch from this Watch app to now playing app to control the volume. Other than the Watch app, this app is great.

The best!!

Great!

This app is just what I needed. I have been listening to podcasts for years and it has always been a pain managing them in iTunes and syncing them over or downloading them one by one through iTunes on the phone. This app has all the features I was looking for.

Update — I have been using this app for years now and it just keeps getting better.

Update2 — this developer has been great he is really on top of things. Constantly keeping the app up to date. No app is bug free but it seems like when I do find a bug this developer has it fixed before I even have a chance to report it. You can’t ask for much more than that.

Best of all podcast apps

I've checked out most of the podcast apps and this one is the best! It is VERY feature rich and customizable.
I really love the way that I can have custom playlists and they can be manually sorted. This allows me to have only the episodes that I want on a list and put them in the order that I want to sort them.
Another feature I make great user of us the note taking. It lets me capture my thoughts very easily.
And being able to have custom gestures allows me to skip forward and back just how much I want very easily.
There are a few other very good podcast apps out there, but ICatcher is the best of the best!
