Decent UI but stability and utility are lacking. I would rate much higher if the app was stable. I haven't been able to finish a single stream without a crash, and I cannot even skip back to the approximate time in the cast. Also the app seems to not use androids standard audio playback kit if there is one. I can play use Pandora and podbay simultaneously for audio playback which probably doesn't help stability. If the devs address the stability issues I would gladly rate Podbay higher and revise my review.
I like the simplicity of this app, and I love that you don't have to download the podcasts & can access a full library of whatever show you're listening to. I've used Podcast for 3 years now but recently it's gotten quite glitchy. I'll be listening to a half hour podcast and 10-15 min in it just stops. I can try to reboot the app but then I have to start the podcast over from the beginning & it will stop again anyways. I usually have to wait until the next day to try again. I keep the app updated so I have no idea why it keeps happening. Also i like the 30 second rewind but i wish there was a 30 second forward button.
Needs more features This app needs far more features like fast forward, download functions, rewind functions, lock screen functions, widget. Also why does it take so long to load?
No rewind our fast forward? I like this app overall. Love the Gimlet Media broadcasts. The app loses my place when I have to turn it off. Then it isn't possible to just slide to the correct location. It stutters a lot. instead.
App stutters. I can only preform one seach and view one podcast page before the entire app freezes and wont open anything else,including the page I just viewd. I am thus forever stuck with the podcast I first chose (or at least until I force close the app).
Nice looking app and I love it because I can listen to my favorite podcasts, but there needs to be fast forward/rewind buttons and it needs to be able to remember where it left off when you come back to it. It also keeps crashing when i open my messages but that may just be my phone.
