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!

Love the app but reinstalling breaks subscription


/UPDATE: the most recent update has fixed the ability to Restore my active subscription so I am now VERY PLEASED with this app overall. Many thanks to the dev team for getting this sorted out. /UPDATE: after several app updates I still can’t restore my already paid for subscription. The app is great otherwise but it’s been many weeks since I paid for it and am still stuck with ads because the Restore button doesn’t work. Not cool. /UPDATE
I love this app, best podcast player I’ve seen. I subscribed to it but seemed to have found a bug where removing and reinstalling the app breaks the subscription and the ads don’t go away. Can renew subscription and can’t Restore button the ads away. Not sure what to do as I can’t find a way to contact support either. This would be five stars if those things were fixed/made clearer.

Needs option to play newest to oldest episode


As the Apple podcast app has gotten progressively more convoluted, I’ve begun looking for an alternative. This app has a lot to like in the straightforward interface and easy access to shows you have added. Finding new podcasts and saving episodes is also intuitive.

However the big drawback is the app will not play podcasts in reverse order (from newest to oldest). The lack of this option is a killer for me, since I prefer to click the most recent episode in a show and then let it play back through previous episodes. This is great for long road trips, and requires no touching of the phone or looking at the screen.

If playback order options were added, I’d gladly switch and pay the fee for the ad free version. As it is, I’ll have to keep looking...😕
