Very Good App...Some additions needed
I have used every podcast app out there and Pocketcasts is one of the best. I use this on my iPhone, iPad, and iMac(the web player of course). They all sync flawlessly. With the addition of skip silence and volume boost, Pocketcasts is near the top of the pack. Some podcasts I like to automatically download every episode. I love the fact that I can set each individual podcast to do that and it works in the background automatically. Other podcasts, I want to read the episode description before I decide whether or not to download. This app gives me the option to do that or even stream if I want to. The UI is really sleek and smooth. I love the easy swiping gestures and the dark theme option. Finally, I'm a huge fan of the "play next" feature. It's super easy to put together a list and just let it run, and change the order with ease. As a power listener of podcasts, this is clearly at the top. Now, I do have a couple of suggestions to make it even better: 1) Add the ability to listen to an individual episode of a podcast without having to subscribe. 2) Add the ability to turn off the screen rotation. Otherwise, I'm a die hard fan of this app!
Years of use...now awful
Been using this apps for years. The past month or so has been awful. Podcasts just stop halfway through. Try to redownload...same thing. Today I downloaded one of the most popular podcasts and it was 348kb and 1 second long. Kept trying to redownload...no change. Went to the native podcast app and there was the full episode...downloaded and listened to it there, no problem.
I've been trying to give them the benifit of the doubt and assuming new updates will fix the issue. Nope...just getting worse and more sloppy. Like many other apps, frequent updates keep creating more glitches. Stop trying so hard and only update when you know it works. Will keep 1 star reviewing for all future updates because they use updates to wash out all these negative reviews. Back to the native app for me (after YEARS of using this app). What a shame. Don't waste your money.
Intuitive UI & FANTASTIC support
I've tried them all... downcast, podcatcher, blah, blah, blah.
The UI is slick (iPhone 6+) and intuitive to use. Playback at 2x is properly pitch-adjusted (no hamsters) and it works properly on both audio & video podcasts (video lagged audio by a bit at first, no longer an issue). The silence killer is a great feature. Control of auto-downloads and auto-"up next" per individual podcasts is nice automation.
Bugs are unfortunate, but not unexpected on a complex project. I found a couple, send a detailed bug description, and had very quick turnaround on a fix (3 days from bug email to v6.6 push). Very nice support!
