Still good but new version needs fixes Well first of all I do like new design but with the update there are couple of lost options. When I'm listening a podcast and would like to mark it as "Listened" it is now only possible from the podcasts list (from downloaded list, my own list, unplayed list, aso). Not from the currently playing podcast view. Please add this button back.
The best podcast app This by far the best podcatcher. Something like doggcatcher is more feature rich but also a lot heavier on phones and plain confusing. Having the opportunity to sync podcasts and listen to them on a variety of devices including desktop doesn't hurt either.
One gripe If it would keep playing even after the app is closed that would be nice. Really nice. Or at least have an option to keep it in memory. Cause understandably some people wouldn't want to leave it running. However people like me love listening to their podcasts and consequently love the app that plays it for them; help me love you more!
Better than Most but Missing Key Feature App does not allow you to skip to next track which is essential for driving commuters. App has customizable skip forward and backward buttons where user can change the number of seconds but no basic feature allowing user to advance to the next podcast with one press-neither on device nor connected BlueTooth. As a pay app it really should have this feature!
The app is definitely getting better. One major problem I still have is that when I play a video (screen on, video displaying) and press the home button or press the "X" icon on the top the video seems to skip ahead about 15 seconds.
Worth it just for the changelogs! 😂 Really great app. Probably the most material app out there!
There comes a time in every apps life, where it has to look itself in the mirror, and make the changes needed to become the app it knows it can be. That time for Pocket Casts, is today.
