Works flawlessly

Since the new iOS, I have had nothing but problems with Apple’s Podcast app. I tried Stitcher first, as an alternative, but they didn’t have all of the podcasts I listen to available. This was the second app I tried, and I found it to be exactly what I was looking for. First and foremost, it works; doesn’t crash, doesn’t freeze, works with my Bluetooth shower speaker, just fantastic. I haven’t tried it over Bluetooth in my car yet, but I hope the ads don’t cause any problems with that. I love that it’s so quick and easy to install and add to playlist in one simple step. With Apple’s app, that process had become never ending. Two negatives (but I’m thrilled enough with how the app works that I won’t subtract stars for them): ads are a bit startling. To click on something and see a cartoon Trump’s face pop up, rather than what I was trying to do, always creeps me out. I don’t think I would pay for an ad-free version to make them go away, I just wish they could happen at some other point. Also, I miss the on-screen volume controls. Not the end of the world, but I wish that could be added!

Simple, But Great

After waiting months for Apple to fix its HORRIBLY flawed podcast app, I finally gave-up and started searching for an alternative. This app was not on my radar, but has been a good experience, so far.

THE GREAT: Unlike the native Apple App, it ACTUALLY WORKS!! What an AMAZING CONCEPT!! My CPU usage is finally down to a reasonable level and I haven’t had a single crash in 24 hours.... My lifespan may actually increase thanks to my declining blood pressure!

AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT: I am still transitioning to this app, so I may have missed something, but #1). There doesn’t seem to be a way to delete “unplayed” shows. As long as my phone’s memory usage isn’t high, that won’t be a problem; I’ll just have to ignore my compulsion to “clean-up” my podcast lists. #2). There doesn’t seem to be a way to organize the podcasts into folders/stations. On a positive note, you can “move” the podcasts around, allowing you to keep similar topics together. Again, if these are the quirks that I’ll have to tolerate to find a podcast app that ACTUALLY WORKS (and may actually add days to my life), I’m OK with that! THANKS!!

My Favorite (and Most Used) App!

I use this app all the time for two reasons: I LOVE podcasts and I really enjoy the structure of this app. It has a simple layout, it looks modern and up to date, unlike Apple’s podcast app. I really, REALLY enjoy the grid layout of being able to see all of my favorite podcast at once (I hope the developers keep this). I do wish that there were settings for the user and I could customize the layout of the home listen screen, especially since I pay for the upgraded version with ads (SO WORTH IT!!). For example, I don’t really care for the top line up of new shows, I already get notifications for that and the “new” tag pops up on my podcasts when a new one is available. Also, like my second favorite app, Audible, I wish there was an option to change the background/theme to “mode” or something. Definitely not deal breakers, and I would give this app more than 5 stars if I could, but maybe in a future update.

Thanks for the app!
