Almost perfect. (I will revise this to 5 stars if Podbean adds features.) I love this app, but I would love it if they added a repeat 1 time for listening to the same podcast over and over (I would use it on stuff I study on here) AND a repeat all function for playlists. It would allow me to sleep better when I relax to my favorite list for sleeping. Bonus: add a sleep timer, I wouldn't use it, but I know folks who would.

This is the only podcast app I have ever used so I can't compare. I'm not very podcast savvy. That said, the app is EASY to use. Never had any issues. I don't think some realize you can delete the downloads with one touch in settings. I do it once a week....or when I get to double digit g's.

Been using this app for 2 years now and never had one issue with it. It has a good variety of the specific topics I'm into (UFO's/paranormal), with more podcasts added frequently. As far as ads go, I just hit the 30 second forward button and bypass them. And when you're working a 12 hr shift daily, a 30-60 second ad every once in awhile isn't going throw my listening experience into a tailspin in order to keep it free. If ads bother you, pay for a subscription that doesn't have them.
