Looking for a Google podcast app replacement, and found this. It seems to be an good replacement, but I'm struggling to understand how to make it work like I needed to. I listen to podcasts that are daily radio shows. I want to listen to them sequentially, but the app keeps going to older podcasts by default. Also, the podcasts don't refresh. I can't find a tutorial online. Everything is geared towards starting your own podcast. Very frustrating. Seems to be a good app, just needs a user guide.

Autoplay goes to the older content rather than playing new content, making it frustrating to enjoy a narrative based podcast when it plays the previous episode after one is done. UI and notifications for new episodes is alright, and clicking the follow button let's you download what you want, if you want as things come out. But man, the auto play sucks. Also, there's no way to hide played episodes, which adds to the clutter when a show has 600 episodes.

Hi, Thanks for your feedback. Please click the three lines icon on the podcast page, then set the play order as “old to new”.

I find this app quite frustrating. If it's front end was designed a bit more competently, it could be a great app. There's apparently no way to make a queue, other than making a "Playlist of your favorite episodes", which is just weird, it's PC integration is horrible, and intended for uploading original podcasts, not listening to existing ones. There's no way to limit the number of episodes in your pre-built "new" Playlist of all followed podcasts, causing hourly news pods to stack up. Almost.
