Edit 6-17-2022: The problem has gotten much worse. Now, there are popups that play videos that interrupt the podcast. You can't back out of these because it restarts the video, necessitating restarting the app. This is a pain to do during while driving, especially during rush hour. Original: Every update is worse than the last. This time around, leave the app running and when you look at your screen again or come back to Podkicker it's on the Play Store on a random app.

Used the app for years, but they recently added really intrusive ads every time you open the app. I get having some ads, but this is very unnecessary for an app with effectively no costs given it just pulls content. It's always had some bugs, but the prior lower ad format made it fine. Very disappointing, guess I'll move to spotify. Do NOT download this if you're looking for a simple, quality pod player.

Edit: updated from 2 to 5 stars as ads before starting and in the middle of podcasts have gone away completely since my first review. Love this app without video ads./// They just added ads that must be played before you start a podcast, as well as in the middle of a podcast. I was working out with my phone half the room away using Bluetooth, and my podcast just stopped playing. I understand ads when I start a podcast, I hate it, but I get it. The ads in the middle are truly unacceptable though.
