I was a longtime user of castbox, but the ads just got to be too annoying. This app is a great replacement, it literally has every feature. Which, granted is a problem. With so many options (e.g. the per podcast settings screen), it's a bit difficult to navigate and configure things. That being said, I cannot think of another app I would prefer!

Hands down the best podcast app there is. Has a TON of features and makes it super easy to keep on top of & up to date with any podcasts. Has GOBS of customization options to do things exactly as you like. The developer I swear is always working on the app too, keeping it up to date and adding new features. Would definitely recommend "upgrading" for just a few bucks just to thank them - they've really kept the app A+ for years. The world needs more developers like this one who really care.

A great podcast app! I started using it after BeyondPod stopped updating and heard that this was the most equivalent for what I wanted. Playlists that update and re-sort due to priority and date uploaded. Able to adjust the speed per each individual podcasts and it saves it. It was a bit difficult for me to figure out how to set it up, but once I did it has been great! I still have trouble with the priority/date part of the playlist, but it is working sufficiently so I am happy with it.
