Unlike Spotify and Stitcher, the download location STAYS where you tell it to and downloaded episodes won't randomly skip/repeat segments at random times like you're watching Memento. The UI learning curve is not all that bad. It's the podcast app that I'll be recommending to others, if anyone that contributed to the development of this app is reading this, you have my deepest appreciation and gratitude.

Was forced to migrate from BeyondPod and I'm so glad! Was looking for an app that would allow me to organize podcasts into groups, and that is a feature surprisingly hard to find even though it should be a no-brainer. But I am also absolutely loving that I can watch video podcasts in the app and load my YouTube subscriptions in there also, since YouTube is disorganized and I forget to even check things I supposedly follow. (Just paste the YouTube url into the podcast search bar.) Free works well

This has been a great app. It makes it very easy to manage your feeds, find similar podcasts to what you are listening to. And makes it very easy to rate the podcasts, at least compared to my previous podcast player. My only complaint, and this is more of an indictment on my fat fingers, is that the "add to Playlist" and "mark played" are next to each other. I have on more than one occasion deleted a podcast by accident when I tried to add it to the Playlist. I bought the player after a week
