Is a bit broken right now. Every now and then, it'll just skip forward 10 seconds or so. Doesn't matter the cast. I've used this app of and on for years and this is a recent thing. Also I can't figure out how to play a list of episodes from bottom to top. Not the Playlist, the episodes in a shows channel.

When it connects to bluetooth, it automatically opens and begins playing whatever was playing. This happens even after (or during) a Force Stop on the app. Beware if you share a car. The settings are byzantine, but thorough, and most desired results can be googled so it is functional.

Player apps have a passive role here. They react to the commands they received. Here your car is sending a play command upon connection to BT which should NOT be done. It doesn't matter if an app is running or not. Android will forward the command to the app it thinks should process it. Please don't blame the app for this. Pls contact me 1st in cas

Great app! Excellent search and share functions. Super intuitive. The only limitation for me personally is that my phone doesn't have a lot of memory, so at a certain point the app won't download or refresh. The way I have dealt with this is to Unsubscribe and Resubscribe to a podcast which means I lose my listen history. Maybe there is a better way? Overall, I have been super happy with the app!

You don't have to download episodes to listen to them. You can stream them. If you choose to download episodes you can just delete them at any time to free storage space. No need to unsubscribe. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions (Settings/feedback) Thanks
