Used to be my favorite but barely working since last update. Wouldn't play downloaded podcasts for some time, now it won't download episodes at all. Update: now it won't even play the downloaded episodes that I had saved before the problems began. Only plays podcasts when I have internet and will not download. I guess it's time for a new podcast app.Addl update: reinstalled and got working again, but lost all my saved downloads and saved settings. Dropped one star for all the headache.

It would be much better if there was one place where users can view all of the podcasts that were downloaded. For example, if a user downloaded 2 episodes from podcast A, 2 from B, and 2 from podcast C. Currently, to listen, you have to go into each podcast and then into downloads. It would be better to get to them from the home screen with 1 tap. Edit: In response, props for sharing this shortcut, but 1 tap from the homesreen is the goal. Put the downloads on the homescreen.

Usually a 5 star for me, but the past few months have encountered multiple issues: 1) Auto-download for apps has not been working 2) I have selected "do not delete episodes after playing" in both setting options (main menu & download menu), BUT the download either deletes as soon as I start playing the episode or after it's done playing 3) Audio will randomly jump back a few seconds through each podcast, sometimes causing the end of the podcast to cut off early. Hope these get resolved soon.
