Search is quite good. I've been able to find everything I'm looking for. Only issue for me (and this is a big one) is that frequently in the middle of an episode, it will just randomly stop playing and tag the episode as finished, so I have to go back to the episode list and find it again and then skip through to find where I left off. Only happens when I'm streaming, so I can avoid it well enough by downloading. Is this a known bug? It's been doing this to me for quite some time.
Streaming offline doesn't work great, the track skips back 1-3 mins then will skip forward 1 minute randomly. You end up missing parts and it will not allow you to play that missing part. I've never been able to hear the parts it skips. Otherwise, the app works well, downloads fast, mostly easy to use. It was difficult to find out how to delete downloaded podcasts instead of just hide them.
I have tried several podcast apps and always found Addict to be the best. I like and use the options regarding updating the podcasts, playing older to newer, and subscriptions. My only request is a sync option to synchronize playlists over multiple devices. Since I use multiple devices, I would like to auto update what I have already heard on my playlist. Thats the only reason I didn't give the 5th star.
Great app and great response from the developer when I had a problem. Full version well worth it, but ads not intrusive. Great on all fronts. I don't use much of the customizable features, but it feels like you can make it exactly what you want. You have no reason not to try it.
Great app. Easy to pick up and use out of the box, and lots of options for those who like to dive deep into settings for a custom experience. Used free version for a long time and eventually paid to lose the ads just because I got so much mileage out of it.
Honestly my issue with this app is that I can't manually update or download if the network conditions aren't met. I have my app set to automatically download and update only on certain networks, but there are times when I'm not on those networks but I still want to check for or download a new episode without having to go and temporarily change my settings. When you get the popup: 'Connection failure... Unauthorized network', it would be wonderful if you were also presented with a 'Do it anyway' button.
