Coming from an iPhone I enjoy the fact that it automatically plays the next podcast episode in the right order. I always had to go to the next episode and push "play next" on apple podcast to make sure it was the correct one everytime. I appreciate this little detail. The only thing that would make it better would be to be able to change the rewind/fast fwd to a different time option for each. I know this is a little detail, but it would make it perfect for me! Overall great app.

The app itself is fine, it's whatever. My issue is the stupid mid roll ads that are three times as loud as the podcast and interrupt it mid sentence. And you can't even go back to where the show got interrupted because the ads are part of the playback. Also I listen to podcasts to fall asleep and the ads completely ruined that. It's like the app was designed to be as annoying and as possible. I guess I'm switching to Spotify. If you're trying to drive customers away you're doing a great job 👍

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. It's as though the app takes it upon itself to play all the podcasts so I don't miss anything. I've tried adjusting the settings but it seems it's an all or none setup. This issue drains data and battery
