Used this because it was ok and free but finally had to upgrade to something better. The last update has started over using CPU on my phone, running in the background, had to be force stopped, and then continued to open and run in the background on its own. Also, there are no accounts so there is no way to recover your subscriptions easily if you have to reinstall or if you get a new phone.
It's impressive to see an app with so many custom options still be so reliable and user-friendly. I keep being genuinely surprised at how good it is. EDIT: It's been over a year using this app for me. While I still love it, and one feature I've begun to realize is missing is the ability to sync my podcasts across multiple devices. As far as I can tell, this isn't something that this app supports or that is planned to be included in a future release. While I'll keep using this app for now, I'm now open to using other podcast apps. EDIT EDIT: I got a quick response telling me that the feature is in development. Sorry for the confusion!
I will Glady give this 5* once they create a user name and password so it will save all of your settings more importantly the podcasts you have already listened too. I have had 3 different devices and each time this app is the biggest pain because there is absolutely no way to find out where you were at in each podcast. Please create a log in so it saves your settings and history and you will get 5*. I can't be the only who finds this extremely inconvenient. Other than that great app.
I usually don't review apps but the responsiveness of this developer is phenomenal. I am a long time user and was recently experiencing crashing and playback issues after a recent update. Within the hour of submitting my feedback the app was updated and my issue resolved. Great app that is easy to use and in my opinion the best podcast app out there.
ive been using this app for a few months and absolutely loved it. it never crashed and has so many customization options, plus i can download things when i travel. however, i updated this app today and after some while realized my phone wasnt charging. i thought it was just me until i checked and it told me it would take 9 hours to fully charge (usually takes about 1 1/2 hours). i saw it said this app was draining most of the battery. i went in and changed the type of ad but it said it would take 5 hours to charge. wish i didnt update this all.
I have an android and either droid users cannot leave feedback on favorite casts or I just haven't figured it out. I wish that aspect were easier. But I love the app. Also. If you exit out of an app while the podcast is playing it'll stop and restart the cast from like 2mins in.
