please restore pre cloud and pre seperate
After recently paging thru my first three iPhones it's extra clear what a memory hog this has become .. 7Gigs of memory and like 6episodes that can be played without re streaming or "attempting to download" does anyone else remember iPhone was once popular and originally amazing cause combined iPod with a phone.. Now I waste more time trying to listen or play anything and attempting to "free up more memory" by constantly deleting apps and wasting time, plus no longer having music library or even music on here... Episodes are listed that can be downloaded or streamed and no longer on device but seem to still use memory.. Oh and photos eat the other third ever since stupid HRG option which cannot be turned off.. Annoying.. So now that podcast app has been made stand alone basically can not use or listen to much of anything unless constantly on wifi or connected.. And considering bulk of time listening was on subway ungrounded or on road trips ... It's just disappointing... Let's say we stop making more crap and new models of devices constantly and work on the basics that once made the products great.. Frustrating as hell.. Basically have to listen or update from computer iTunes.. And every update gets closer to f n that up too... This app is a MUST have, but only by necessity.. Please fix it and the basics
Free but requires patience
This podcast app should be the only podcast app anyone even considers. It's the first app I downloaded (EVER) and it has introduced me to some great things. BUT... I'm considering looking for another app now.
I have experienced a slow-burn degradation of the quality in the last year. It has always crashed on occasion, but now I have to attempt to open it 3-4 times before it even makes it to the podcast home. It has started to have more trouble with bookmarking. It's constantly re-downloading episodes, especially those that I use the "mark as played" option on, but often just random episodes from the catalog. It takes upwards of a minute to get an episode to start playing sometimes, which may seem like bickering, but a minute of just staring and waiting seems like an eternity. I rarely get playback error messages, but I do see the pre-loading hanging up in spots at times.
I think it comes down to something being created with the purpose of being a huge convenient hub of all my podcast needs. When working right, this app is just that. It just rarely works right.
I'll have a podcast playing, go to check Facebook, and it shuts down. I'll have a podcast playing, open apps I've never had problem with playing with a podcast before, and suddenly it shuts down. An episode finishes, and immediately, an episode from a different podcast I had finished and cleared from the queue starts playing. I've experienced the Automatically-changes-randomly-in-the-middle happening, and I've experienced the Error-content-unavailable-cannot-download-at-this-time trouble. Also, there's podcasts I once subscribed to, then stopped my subscription and now I can't get their podcast title thingy off my list! I can delete the others, but others don't have that option at all.
I am quite disappointed in this podcast app. Back in the days when you used the iTunes app to download and listen was the best and now this crud.
Gets 3 stars for having all of the podcasts I want to listen to. Should only have the 2 stars, really, for the headache that comes from using it.
