SECOND EDIT: Recently (since the last update?) ads will auto-open the play store and occasionally auto-play audio. For an audio-driven app, this is unacceptable. I've used and loved podkicker for years, which makes the recent issues all the more frustrating. I see in the reviews that I'm not the only one experiencing this, so I'm going to give it a little more time to see if they fix these issues before jumping ship.

Prob1: Starts playing automatically when phone connects to truck (bluetooth). The toggle to disable this does not work. Even with app completely closed, it starts playing regardless. Prob2: ads hijack and open Google Play automatically Update: took away a star. Dev did contact me with things to try but none of them worked. Now it's worse - even with app OFF, sometimes when I start streaming movie on my phone podkicker will hijack the sound and play over top of the movie. 100% garbage app.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Millo. What you experience is surely not how our app should behave. For us to investigate your issues, can you please mail us at support@player.fm and share the info you've mentioned here, as well as any other useful info?

I have been a loyal Podkicker user for years. The experience has evolved and now ads block basic functionality of the application. So I look into buying the ad free version and you cannot do so! You can do subscriptions but you cannot purchase. If you ever have to help a loved one cancel recurring subscriptions when their spouse dies, it is a painful process that takes months with endless phone calls, mailing death certificates etc. I am looking for a no subscription replacement app now.
