I'm addicted to pocket casts This app is great. There is so much to love about this app. It works offline, has a widget, wonderful user interface, sync between devices and much, much more. It allows u to amplify to volume to certain podcasts that aren't loud enough, which is great, and u can set it to skip the opening if you'd like. However, that all being said, that doesn't mean there isn't room for improvement. There is no recommendation feature or the ability to rate podcasts, which would be great.
Auto download only does most recent episode Not all of them. Great podcast player and well worth the money- Their patch notes are hilarious which means a lot to me. Free syncing across devices and it backs up all your podcasts. Fairly frequent updates. It runs smoothly and is virtually bug free. I could not reccomend it more. I am a voracious podcast listener. The only podcast player that I have found to be better is "Downcast. on IOS. However this is a strong second and by far the best podcast player on Android. Thank you, keep up the hard work.
Something is amiss... Been working fine until this week (9/19). I listen at 1.5x speed. It seems podcasts longer than 1 or 2 hours will jump back to about the 15 min mark of the podcast when it hits the 1 hour mark. Then when I try to scrub back or forward it jumps to the very beginning of the podcast. The scrubber does not move to the position for the beginning of the podcast though. Then if you scrub a couple more times the podcast acts as if it finished. I have auto-cleanup on. So, it will delete the file when this happens.:(
Very good Works very well. I use this app heavily in lieu of terrestrial radio, and get an occasional crash but it is rare; perhaps once every 3 weeks. The only improvement I can think of would be to add a separate volume gain setting for podcasts, as some podcast series seem to be recorded at different volumes than others.
Excellence in the making Clearly a modern design not burdened by legacy stuff. But core improvements are needed for a serious (utility focused) podcast app. My first suggestion would be that there MUST be an option to activate seeing something like 60 characters of the podcast description in the listing. Because with lectures series, titles are often almost identical. Already for this alone, I had to turn back to my old favorite player.
Some improvements needed I recently found this app for podcasts which I really like. Though it could use some tuning, one is when I subscribe to a podcast channel, could it instead by default makes all of the contents marked as unplayed. Another thing is that on the all country podcasts option, it did not really display all of the podcasts, where when I select individual country I can see some which does not appear in the all option. Apologies if these were already raised, but good overall and I really like it. 4/5, keep it up!
Build 324! Our most exciting build yet. Chamfered edges. Thinner. Lighter. Less Ports. Improved Camera. Comes in one new colour (yeah you spell it with a 'u' America). Now hand over your money, plz. K thx bye. [Engages Reality Distortion Field].
What...that didn't work? Odd it works for Apple all the time! Honestly though we fixed a truck load of things in this build, and we hope you like that it's now the best build of Pocket Casts ever, marketing be damned :)
