Been using this for years. It does everything I could ever want when listening/ referencing/ re-listening to my favorite podcasts, and a whole lot more. I've suffered through having to use other podcast players (eg: listening to something "exclusive"), but couldn't stand the innane simplicity of other players long enough to finish their content. This takes a bit to get used to (especially if you're coming from other stripped-down players), but very worth the small effort for a powerful app.

I've been using the paid version of app for a few years now and I love it. I just switched to a new phone and was gearing myself up for what I thought would be the biggest headache: of getting all of my unplayed episodes (hundreds, across dozens of feeds) downloaded -- and not the played ones. The backup and restore of settings via Google Drive worked absolutely seemlessly, and, as far as I can tell, perfectly, and saved me tons of work!

All around a great app. When a notification from the phone comes in it does a brief pause then continues other apps I have used only lower the sound during a notification. The 30 second reverse or forward are excellent. The pause is excellent. Other apps I have used have lost their place which is frustrating. The small ad banner is a very minor irritation when you using the free version. After a few months of using the application I stepped up a did the one time purchase to support the desinger.
