Love this app, I switched all of my os to Google from Apple which has itunes and podcast in one app and really am enjoying it. I was having issues with getting all podcast with certain music apps in order to have it all in one place so I decided to do this app and it hasn't let me down yet. I do wish Google would have music, podcast, and be more cohesive with it's set of apps like apple but until that happens this will do the trick!

everything is great except for the fact that finding any new or different content requires an extensive search. The algorithm for "stuff for you" is flawed in the sense that I don't know what I like unless I'm given the option... How do I even know it exists if I'm never shown anything beyond what I'm already subscribed to. According to the help section, the app claims to have a "more like this" feature like Spotify, but after several rounds of updates I have yet to have anything like that.

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.
