Frustrated Uses too much memory...locks other apps up...freezes phone...can't answer incoming calls sometimes locks up my GPS...very frustrating at times
Best Free Fast Playback Player! Have tried several free combinations of good podcast players and/or downloaders. While Acast is not perfect, it is the only free all-in-one app I've found that can download and play back podcasts in faster than real-time. Bugs: sometimes randomly stops playing podcast, but pressing "play" resumes from same spot, so only minor problem. Feed sometimes re-downloads podcasts I've finished and deleted. Option screens are a bit confusing, ie don't "update all" and "download latest" essentially do the same thing?
Nice Podcast App I have been using this app (free version) for years, going back to Froyo. I use it to download and play regular tech podcasts. They down load during the day and ready for me to hear on the commute home. They app does a nice job of cleaning up after itself by letting me set thresholds on the number of downloads to keep. It would be 5 stars but somewhere along the line it developed a problem opening the feeds. On the first attempt to open a feed it opens the last one opened, then on the second attempt it opens the feed you want. Just a slight annoyance.
Not pretty, but effective Does every thing you want a pod catcher to do..... Interface is clunky, and search feature is pretty poor for UK podcasts. otherwise great!
Wanted to love it This app has its heart in the right place. There is a real need for a good podcatch app on Android. ACast tries to fill the gaps, but it is just too unreliable to work for me. I had issues with item selection, adding feeds, and worst of all, stuttering playback. The menu layout is confusing as well. I hope that via revisions and updates this app eventually gels and becomes the nice tool that it could be.
T Great app but annoyed with it starting at random all the time. I start a song playing through bluetooth,it starts last podcast playing at the same time. I disconnect from car bluetooth, it starts playing last podcast through phone speaker. I visit YouTube, it starts playing podcast. SOD OFF! Give us an 'only play when I click play' option. And yes, I've been through the existing options 20 times.
- Streaming playback stopps unexpectedly... Now re-buffers and resumes where left off.
- Other minor bug fixes.
