I'm trying to relisten to my podcast, it's getting so irritating. Even if I've listened to the episode all the way through, it still starts the episodes at the last 3 seconds. So instead of being able to work or drive while listening, I have to be constantly vigilant over it. Today, I tried going through a few all to the end, hoping it'd be reset, and then readded to my queue. It started at the last few seconds for 8 episodes before I was able to fix it. I'm close to deleting this app altogether

This app often has glitches where it loses track of what episodes I have already listened to. I will open it and suddenly have months of shows in my queue that I've already finished. Then you have to go mark all of them as played (individually, I might add), and it doesn't always work. You mark one as played and another comes back. It's ridiculous! Google can't get this app to work correctly but you can make phones? Figure it out!

I liked the app originally when I started using it a couple years ago, but it is so bare-bones that it has become challenging to use when trying to follow more than a few podcasts. There's no way to organize the podcasts by genre with labels/tags/folders, which makes it difficult to find the content I'm in the mood to listen to and gives the interface a cluttered feel. There's no way to hide episodes that you've listened to or not interested in listening to, adding to the cluttered appearance.
