Customer Reviews

Love this app for several years (but battery killing me)

I could not give this app anything less than 5 stars for all of the amazing use I got out of it. This app is simple, reliable and has been improved over the years. My only issue has been with the battery drain. Perhaps this is a necessity to get the data to know whether there are new podcasts available to download. But it feels like this just takes my iPhone down considerably.

That said, this is the only complaint and I've used just about all of the major apps including Apple's Podcast app, Instacast, Overcast and others. But I am strongly considering Overcast because of the battery issue. Please address this if you can.

My favorite podcast app, but

It does almost everything I need it to do. It even seems to be downloading automatically on its on now which is what I always wanted but its best features are that it will download podcasts, keep the number of each individual podcast you specify, allow you to order them, group them, and share them.
But my only remaining wishes would be I wish there was a way to force my favorite episodes to get downloaded by iTunes to keep. And even better to get an episode by episode indicator of which are most liked so you know which are the great episodes like feedly with rss articles.

What happened?

This has been my go to app for podcasts, but something happened. For the longest time it was a great app to access and listen to my favorite podcasts. Then something happened. I don't know what, but the past few days have been so frustrating, I'll be looking for something else soon. Podcasts stop mid-play. Sometimes they continue playing, but with no sounds. Sometimes it freezes my iPhone 5. Maybe we need to just wait for an iOS 10 update, but this is bad enough that I'm taking the time to write this review in hopes that the Devs see it.
