Despite significant upgrades, this app still has problems. I can now subscribe to podcasts, which is nice, but auto-download doesn't work. Also, the app doesn't work with Android Auto, so I can no longer listen in my car. That's a huge negative, since that's where I do most of my podcast/radio listening.

Essentially, this app is useful. I use it on a spare, no SIM phone, at home, via wifi. In practice the app is VERY frustrating. It claims 'lost connection' frequently and stops. To be fair, it usually starts off again from where it stopped but the frequent interruptions are annoying. I first thought that it was my wifi that was poor - but all the tests/apps that I have run found far fewer wifi stops, if any. Conclusion: Mickey Mouse App!
