One-time payment, very powerful and tweakable, bookmarking specific points in an episode feature. Fast. Downsides: no syncing of currently playing episode on the web (edit: does sync position), no way to subscribe or manage subscriptions on the web. Slightly clunky. Podverse is a similar app, slower on my non-flagship phone, also has bookmarking (bookmarking slightly better), better syncing, but requires annual fee vs one-time fee for Podcast Republic. Edit #2: I can't find a better podcast app!

It is free and has so many customizations and features. I can set speed for each individual podcast and It remembers which ones I wanted regular speed and which ones I want to run faster. I can set things to automatically download only download when I have Wi-Fi or download on my own. I could go on and on. I don't understand why this app is not better known

Review Update: I've been trying unsucessfully to reach the developer with an issue with no return emails. While this app has been my go-to app for podcasts,RSS feeds and radio stations, I can't seem to get the synching to work on my multiple devices. I constantly switch devices (Samsung Phone, tablet and desktop and want them all to be in sync and delete the played podcasts on the devices simultaneously. When I attempt a password reset or setup an account I NEVER get a verification email.
