I appreciate being able to find a few podcasts that I really love that are not available on Google Play. My frustration with the app comes from the playback features. Anytime my phone rings and interrupts the show listening to, I have to stop what I'm doing and reopen the app, wait for it to load, and then find where I was in the show.
I love that Satchel gives me continual access to Pass the Mic, NPR, my favorite thinkers, etc. However, one frustration is that other apps interfere with playback (i.e. when I get a call it pauses the podcast and when I press play to go back to it, the sound is muted but there's no "un-mute" button). Also, when I connect to my Sharkk speaker it plays the podcast on "fast forward" (like Alvin and the Chipmunks). Other than that I've enjoyed having all these podcasts organized easily at my fingertips.
5 stars for having Welcome to Night Vale. ALL HAIL THE GLOW CLOUD
Looks like a Rolls drives like a Nova Beautiful app. Easy to use and intuitive interface. It's just slow. It takes too long to load and each page greets me with a spinning wheel. Sadly it will also stop randomly when I try to use it in the background with any other app, including GPS. I love the app and am looking forward to the day when these issues are resolved.
Needs a queue list. But pretty solid so far Switched from podcast addict because it had playback issues, can't wait until I can queue up a days worth of podcasty goodness. Oh, and a widget would be awesome.
Crashes are annoying Does not play podcasts in the background while you're using other apps. Constantly crashing and I have to keep restarting. So annoying! =(
