Missing key features


I can't make all episodes of a podcast as "listened to" which is pretty essential feature for anyone wanting to move from iPhone Podcasts app and continue where they left off. It lets me mark all episodes as unplayed! Why? I don't see that being useful. Marking all episodes as played is key if you are new to a podcast and don't want Satchel to assume you want to listen to all back episodes -- many podcasts are not timeless and old shows have little value.

I can't seem to control playback order and display sort order separately.

I wish there was a migration feature that could find all matching podcasts on the iOS podcast app and import the subscription into Satchel. It doesn't have to import the episodes, just the knowledge that a podcast was subscribed to.

I really like this podcast player! It has a lot of neat features such as its listen local search which let me find more podcasts that are produced in my area, which I really like because I like supporting my community. It also lets me donate to podcasts from my phone which is oh so nice. Let's be honest, if I don't do it when I am listening to the podcast, I forget to go online. So, really awesome innovations and conveniences!

Needs some work.


I like the interface, and easy of searching, subscribing, and donating. Still has some bugs to work out. Frequently the entire app crashes out of nowhere. When you first load the app, it sits at a blank page with a wheel turning while you wait for your podcast to load. The first couple times this happened I thought the player was broken. Fix these things and I can honestly say I'm going to kick my Stitcher app to the curb. Thanks for all your hard work.
