It's ok. Nice and simple design. Filters are kind of good idea (kind of playlists with a twist). Have all the mayor features that all other podcast players have. Cons: there's no way to change or edit the controls options. I use Bluetooth headphones and there's no way to skip the current track without taking the phone out of my pocket, unlock and press skip (if you don't think is a big deal, try using it while you are riding a bike or motorcycle, training, etc.).
I love the app. Love the extra dark theme two thumbs up. I prefer the visuals of this podcast app over the other popular one. I recently began trying to use this app again to get back into podcasts. I noticed when adding podcasts on one device, they are not being added across my devices (phone & tablet). Besides that one issue, I love the app. Keep up the excellent work. Update: The podcasts are syncing across devices. There seems to be a bit of lag syncing across devices after first sign-in.
The best podcast app I have ever used, and I've used almost all of the ones available on the play store. I bought it and it is still the most used app on my phone. Being an ardent podcast listener, I can assure you that you cannot go wrong with Pocket Casts. Only problem is, I can't seem to use the web version even though I bought the Android app. I tried emailing Shifty Jelly about it to no avail.
Can't mass delete anymore. Also, after deleting episodes (one by one), they seem to automatically re-download if they're not marked as played first. So deleting episodes after listening to them now requires they be marked as played first, and then individually deleted. A formerly quick and simple process now takes many more steps. What a bad update. Might be time to start looking for alternatives.
UPDATE: 12/28/2017 Delete feature has been restored. Working well in 6.4.6. Five out of five star review restored. Great work by the developer listening to the customers. ORIGINAL: Unequivocally the best podcasting app, period. At last glance, I have listened to nearly 800 hours of podcasts since I paid for the app. However, Version 6.4.4 removed a key feature: the ability to bulk delete. In reading other reviews, I'm not alone in my feedback that this was an unwelcome change. I encourage you to download and support these developers. And I also encourage the developers to listen to their customers and restore this feature.
This app hasn't been working properly for a year. Downloads are hit and miss but when you check out the'help' page every answer just blames the individual podcast owners. I think this sums up the attitude of the devs. They're really just hoping you'll fork out another $10 for the web app. Guess what? I won't be.
Version 6.4.6. I mean those numbers look great together, don't get me wrong, but real talk: I can't wait for 7.4.7. Anyway some new things for you to enjoy:
- New Extra Dark OLED theme for all you lovers of black pixels. They don't get much blacker than THE ONE TRUE black. The app no longer restarts when you switch themes either.
- Fixed some issues with download URLs not changing properly when the author updates them.
- Fixes for picture in picture and chromecasting.
