It's a decent app but it's lacking in some features. There doesn't seem to be a sort feature for download episodes or an auto play for them. It also doesn't have a way to favorite an episode or if it does it's buried pretty deep. I like it's easy to use interface and it's clean design.

I was incredibly happy with this app for a long time but not any more... Starting around June 16, I can't listen to or download random episodes of different podcasts. Some will play for a minute and then just stop with an error... There's no point in a podcast app that can't reliably play podcasts, so I have to search for a replacement app. I'm the meantime, downgrading to an old version fixes things.

There have been several issues regarding deleting episodes. Whenever I listen to certain episodes, I delete them from my queue. As of late ALL of the episodes reappear back in my queue as if I've never heard them before. It's time consuming going back to delete them out only to have them reappear again. Google was great at one time but now with security issues, technical issues with a lot of software and repeated glitches, I'm beginning to wonder about a lot of software they introduce.
