I've tried a number of podcasting apps. This isn't the simplest app to use - there's a ton of advanced features - but it has proven to be reliable and the G+ Community and developer response has been great. Edit: I wrote the above review about two years ago, and still use it daily. This edit is to confirm that I am still floored by Xavier's support and the quality of this app. (Hey Xav - did you change the colour of the icon to prevent confusion when you joined Patreon? And I noticed that they changed their icon too. Love that mutual respect!)
Love the app. They added download progress 'pie chart' per my previous request. Great! New Phone, new version of Android (Galaxy S8, 7.0 Nougat). Device Management says Podcast Addict is using 2% of battery power per hour. I'm not sure how accurate that is, but the bar graph is pretty alarming. I'm now forced to let Android put it to sleep. I've googled and only found some old recomendations about letting the app use interstitial ads. That seems like a backdoor solution when the app should just not download new ads until the app is active. I'll keep the 5 stars since it is my favorite app, but please let me know if I can do anything else here.
This is my third install across three devices and I absolutely love this podcast app. All my favourite podcasts are available and downloadable for when I'm out of data connection. Love it.
Podcasts that are offered through the app are diverse & a great selection. Never have had a problem downloading or playing podcasts through this app.
A great podcast app that just works.
Great app, I like its ability to search/find podcasts by searching iTunes database.
You can now support Podcast Addict on Patreon. Thanks a lot!
