One annoying bug
Overall, I like this app. However, I noticed a bug starting in the Dec 21 release. If I go to my Favorites list, open a podcast's page (where it shows all the episodes by that podcast), and listen to the latest episode, the next thing that will play is the latest episode of the next podcast on my Favorites list, not the next episode of the podcast I had selected. This means that there is no way to listen exclusively to one podcast's content if I want to start with the latest; I would have to start from the second-latest, and obviously I usually want the latest.
Still the best
My daily app. Love the feature set: searching for specific episodes, car mode, sorting my playlists by unheard, listen later! I use listen later exclusively to add individual episodes to a playlist, and download them instead of streaming. Brilliant. Also, whenever I have issues or suggestions, it's very easy to email the developer.
I don't pay for the app, but I like it compared to the podcast app. Love the stats it keeps track of, don't love the commercials but I don't pay so can't complain. Like the listen later list. I have suggestions for improvements, but overall love it. Seem less transition from my iPad to my droid phone for ease of listening with one account.
