Love the free audio and variety of content. I like to listen to podcasts as I fall asleep. I can't figure out how to create a queue of podcasts, by clicking play next, then stop playing additional podcasts to which I have subscribed, even though I didn't click play next. I've tried adjusting the settings but it seems it's an all or none setup. This issue drains data and battery. Also, there is no way to review podcasts.

It plays podcasts. Yep. It also causes episodes I've listened to fully to pop back up in my home feed again. That, and sometimes, it takes hours or days for a new episode to appear here, as opposed to other apps I've used. I do like how simple it is used, and the ability to sort individual pants how I want, but the random delay in episodes appearing is featuring at times.

I like this app for the most part. There's has been a continuous problem that has happened several times,and it happened again this morning. My phone did a software update automatically in the middle of the night and any podcast I've recently subscribed to are gone, podcasts I've removed are back and the most frustrating part is ALL my progress is gone . As if I've never listened to the podcast. It gets irritatingly frustrating having to go through each episode trying to find where you left off
