Ratings and Reviews

App Burps beginning of Pods

ML in SA

Have used this app for what feels like a few years, loving its simplicity. However the last few updates have caused a part second replay of the beginning play of Pods being played. This causes havoc with AirPlay to a Apple TV3. Please either allow full screen blank of IPad App when AirPlay'ing or dual play. Hopefully both functions as an option.

Perfect podcast companion


Everything you could need feature wise, without in-your-face complexity. Actively updated (eg IOS8 support) and a pleasure to use.

Really Great App


The app is responsive, easy to navigate and a real pleasure to use! Well worth the money!
