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.

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

Works well. I wish you could save in categories/libraries because I listen for diff reasons. They are lumped together in download or queue and I have to try to sort thru it while I am driving or otherwise without my glasses. I would also appreciate it if the timer would stay at the amount of time you previously set it. It always defaults to 30 minutes which is longer than some of the podcasts and the cast will clear even I fell asleep and didn't get to hear it
