This is my go-to podcast app, and while there's a lot of things that I do enjoy about it there are two things that are very frustrating. It seems like newer podcasts take longer to be featured here. It can be frustrating when I find a podcast I like and I need to use a different app to listen to it. Even more annoying, however, is that almost every single time I'm listening to a podcast via Google podcasts, the app automatically turns the volume down for NO reason! Please fix!!

The app is fast and clean. Each menu flows very well. It's easy to find the content you want and download it. What puts it far above Spotify is that having bad or no internet connection does not hamper your ability to get to downloaded content. There is a cue that you can put episodes into separate from your downloads. Your personal library is not cluttered and gives you access to the most important things you commonly do right up front.

I like this app quite a lot, it's easy to navigate and find what I wish to listen to. However I've had some issues with it not playing podcasts at all, this has happened a few times now. It buffers, stops and then says "unable to play." I've reported the issues and hope whatever is causing it can be fixed.
