The most difficult to use app I have encountered. Searching for new podcasts is difficult. Selecting a podcast is difficult. Choosing a download is difficult. Building a queue is impossible. You have to go through different menus for each common task. I have spent a couple hours over the last week trying to build a queue of podcasts, and only encountered a queue screen once by accident. Can't find it again. Gave up and listened to the radio.

To add a new podcast you just need to press the main screen + button then enter the name of the podcast. To select an podcast or episode, just press on it. To add episode to the playlist just press on the episode screen 'add to playlist' button. The playlist is available from the navigation sidebar. You can also swipe right on the player screen

Enjoyed it for a while. Nice settings, everything worked. Around 6 months ago it randomly started to skip back or forward by 15 sec. to a min, w/my screen off. Then you play the guessing game: do I need to rewind or fast forward it, & for how long? Contacted the owner for help, who had difficulty reading & comprehending what I've described above. I got frustrated & decided to deal with the skipping instead of the owner. Now it's skipping several times in a 1 hour episode. Looking for a new app.

Please contact me 1st in case you have a question or experience an issue before rating the app 1 star so I can gather more information and then help you. I'm sorry but I don't see any email from you. FYI every app rely on the Google player engine for the playback, so if you're experiencing a playback issue chances are that you will it on every app

Of the podcast apps that I have used so far, it's been the most enjoyable and powerful ones. The only major flaw I have found with the program is that it lacks interfacing with Waze. It can be used with Android Auto if your car has that ability, but since Google changed how Android Auto functions when not connected to a car, the lack of direct Waze integration knocks off a start. Apple Music integration was added less than a day ago from the time of this review.

Waze only accepted apps for a couple of months years ago. Since then they do not allow new apps to integrate with them. Only Waze can change this. Edit: Of course companies like Apple don't have the same rights as other companies. The fact is that Waze doesn't accept new submissions via their form
