Review from Mash Williams
Best podcast app and I've tried them all. Super useful for resuming and syncing podcasts with the Web app too, I'd have paid double for that feature alone.
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.
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.
Greatest podcast app ever made. I tried so many others before I caved and bought this. It was the best decision! Very simple, yet feature-rich podcast manager. Definitely worth every penny and more!
The most important feature (episode sync across devices) is totally broken and not working. If you Google it you'll see others having the same issue with sync not working. It's been broken for almost a year. Still no fix in sight. Disappointing..
Best podcasting app I've ever used. I love the tweaks you can make on a per-podcast basis (volume boost, skip silence, playback speed, etc.) Also the devs are fantastic. Love the patch notes as well. Edit: my previous review noted that the addition of a pure black theme would be nice, but the devs have since added that too. Awesome!
Having trouble downloading episodes. The download status is stuck on waiting for a long time, and arbitrarily ends up getting downloaded. Hasn't worked since the past two updates.
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.
