Ratings and Reviews
Very ridged in controls and function. Can’t create personal feed on the fly, can’t add entire blacklists to playlists, difficult search that will auto-start any episode touched without an option to see what the episode is about or add it to a playlist, limited to only podcasts on their network, does allow for downloads, but not long term (according to other reviews.). Doesn’t have large buttons for listening in the car. Crops the Podcast image during playback. Every option seems to be buried in menus.
On the plus side, they do allow for episode comments. They have a feed/feature and the ability to (with determination) see a history of what’s been played. The app looks polished and has clean lines.
Very beginner grade and doesn’t seem to be taking the profession seriously. Can’t recommend to friends and clients.
Excellent App for Podcast Lovers and Pocasters
I love the latest update! In addition to the already user friendly interface, with this update they have added a feature that allows you to download episodes while you are searching the rest of the app for other new episodes. As a listener I appreciate this option. As a podcaster I love that they have now integrated the patreon support feature into the app so listener can easily choose to support podcasts.
Yes it has a pretty look, with the circle and such. But a few features - and the lack of them - make this a very frustrating App to use.
Settings seem to act on a single episode at a time; can't say set playback speed at the global OR podcast level - have to start playing each episode first THEN set the speed. Plus there's no 1.25 option - 1.5 and up only.
Ditto for downloading for offline listening (this one is important to me).
The circular scrolling method - while visually clever - is awkward and imprecise. And the jump 15 seconds forward and back icons are quite small - this and the difficult scrolling make car use challenging.
Updated to remove a star: my favorite podcast doesn't load. I was listening to an episode, it stalled and never resumed. I tried restarting the App, restarting the phone, resetting the phone, deleting the App. I can FIND the podcast with a an episode count, but on opening no episodes are listed.
I'm done. Deleting now.
