Like many other reviewers, I have used this app for years. I liked that it had an easy UI and was fairly straightforward. It did what it needed to due which was play podcasts. Now, not so much. It crashes every 2 minutes. It is the most frustrating thing ever. I listen to podcasts to sleep, and it crashing every 2 minutes doesn't help. I also don't appreciate getting bombarded with upgrading to a premium version. By all means, get that bag. Too aggressive. Too buggy. Fix the bugs, please.

I've used this app since I purchased my first smartphone a decade ago. In the last four months I have watched this app become less and less functional. In the last few weeks, I have found the app stops playing shows you have downloaded. Is this a bug from the most recent update? I am gonna give the Podkicker team a few weeks to fix it. If they don't, well, you've had enough ad revenue off of my phone. There are other podcast apps. Get it together, people!

Apparently I gave this app a five-star review a few years ago. My opinions have changed. It's gotten much more aggressive about asking to upgrade to the $20 a year premium version, it's started pushing sponsored recommendations at me, and even though I have it set to only use wi-fi, if I don't let it access cellular data, it will stop playing podcasts that have already been downloaded. If I do let it access cellular data, it burns through my data plan at a prodigious rate.
