Customer Reviews

Poor Search

Sjillyc

I love how with the Apple offical podcast app, when I do a search, if my search term is in the podcast eppisode title, those come up. Yet with podwrangler when I search on a term it seams to only do searches on the podcast name. For example, I search on an author I like, Peter Boghossian, 31 episodes come up in the Apple official podcast app, (16 in Stitcher and 16 in TuneIn) yet when I try in podwrangler nothing comes up.

This app was useless!

Paid $1.99 so I could subscribe to more than 5 podcasts. It stopped working midway through the first podcast I played the same night I installed. I want a refund!!

Good Start. Runs hot on iPhone 4S

Very good for a 1.0 release. For me personally, being able to sort from oldest to newest is 90% of the functionality I wanted (and a baffling omission from the Apple Podcasts app). The background updates work well, except for one case. As expected, if you are away from wifi and have disabled cell data usage, new podcasts will appear but not download unless you explicitly start streaming them. However, when you get home and back onto wifi, the un-downloaded podcasts will not automatically download. Instead, you have to start playing each one of them in order to trigger the download. Odd, and bit tedious. Probably a use-case that didn't make the 1.0 release.

Lastly, I listen to podcasts for several hours per day; Podwrangler uses much more battery on my iPhone 4S. I do not stream or download until I'm home in the evening, so it's not excessive data usage.
