This plays podcasts well. It also prevents fluctuation in audio level when notifications play. Still doesn't offer a way to bulk mark selected episodes as unplayed on your phone. Sync now better keeps track of your unplayed episodes, but forgets sort order and won't re-download previously downloaded episodes in the event of a reset. I don't know if it improved my experience, but the better sync came after I also had paid for a website account.
After you finish streaming an episode, it just vanishes. In order to go back to it, you have to unsubscribe from the podcast and resubscribe just to see it again. That is ridiculously unintuitive and should be fixed as soon as possible. Other than that, it's a great app. [Edit] That's just as unintuitive. So for instance, the Joe Rogan Experience podcast has almost 700 episodes, and if I want to get to one that I've already listened to, I have to scroll through all of them to get to the bottom.
This client got me addicted Love all the functionality: variable speed up to 3x, customize the length of skip backwards and forwards operations, auto download your favorite podcasts, and auto delete after listening. Podcasts are sorted by featured, trending, top, network affiliation, and category. You can have multiple episodes in progress and switch back and forth whenever.
Great app but.... It would be awesome if the player was less confusing and you could change the order they play mayby you can tho and I just can't find out how to but awesome never the less
Great, but... Great UX apart from two missing options: ability to cancel a podcast download after a certain time, and mark a podcast episode as unplayed once it's in progress. I accidentally played a couple of seconds on a podcast and ended up deleting it - then found out it got deleted from storage and had to be redownloaded - which itself was hard because even though it was the latest episode, it would show somewhere down the list after pressing show more episodes.
Update ruined video playback. After updating, all of my downloaded video podcasts are now distorted. The video picture is squeezed into the top half of screen while on landscape. And the video disappears completely when flipping to portrait. Unfortunately there is no option made available to "uninstall update" , so I'm stuck with this at Shifty jelly's mercy.
Nutella. Nougat. Both delicious, one coming soon to an Android near you, the other, well, just delicious. In this update:
- added skip back to now playing notification
- reworked a lot of underlying code to prepare for a tastier future
- new sleep timer animation
This version features months of refactoring and bug fixes, that lay the groundwork for some cool things we plan to do later. This change log is making me hungry, why couldn't you name your Android releases after salads G?
