As others have noted, the navigation takes some getting used to, but the app does a lot & that's the price you pay. .. ..have used it for a while. ..i notice that the developer is regularly updating and improving. ...keeps getting better. ... =============================== I wrote my review a while ago and since have tried several other podcast players on a few different android devices, and hands down podcast republic is the best , most reliable, player out there... spend a few minutes getting used to the navigation and I think you'll be impressed.
Back-up does not work, opml import looses tags. Not recognized as a media player by Android any more. Otherwise is cool. Suggestion for making seek more easy: -longer multi-line / circular seek-bar -show waveform -tap / long press etc. while screen off to temporarily raise playback speed.
It was OK. Plays podcasts. However when playing in the background, there is no quick access to press pause etc, you have to install a widget or open the app. Would be useful to have something in the notifications tab at tge top of the phone. It is also doesnt have a very good search or browse functionality
Not the prettiest app but it simply works. Once you know where everything is this is a low maintenance app that even helps handle limiting storage for you by removing old downloads from your storage when you download new things. I had tried many other apps, many that looked much nicer and many people sweat by... Yet here I have returned for a low fuss easy listening experience.
Please stop changing buttons. The alarm function is awesome, sure, but it just lost my favourite function. When I play games on my phone, it now stops. I used to be able to play games and listen to podcasts, but it pauses when I start a game. I can't find a way to fix that in settings.
Bravo. A lot of complicated stuff, but it gets the basics right where so many others fail. 1) You can read a full episode description from the main screen 2) You can clearly see what's downloading, downloaded or queing. 3) You can remove listened to episodes from the main list 4) You can choose the time of your updates. Exactly what I've been looking for. Thank you.
