Nice, easy to use, the latest podcasts. But I think downloads could be managed better. There should be options to delete d/L's older than X date, or hold only N downloads for a podcast at a time (deleting older ones to maintain the count as new ones are downloaded). Podcast Addict has this, as an all-podcast default and for each podcast. Really helps out for devices with limited RAM. Maybe it's there, if so, I haven't been able to find it.

Love the app and the ability to control the speed of audio. Just transfered phones and my app isn't auto downloading. Granted I can do it manually but this is a bit annoying. Hopefully a fix or update will fix it Update: I never clicked the new list and it always automatic. Never noticed the list till now. Ok now it downloads. Also noticed my episodes list would only show system tagged as new. Changed to show all episodes and he got everything finally back on track.

Constantly crashes forcing to reload the entire app everytime. I've tried 3 different phones and the problem is still there. Soo it's definitely there apps issue. Especially others say same thing Iam. Its very frustrating bc they offer no help fixing the issue/bug. I've had this app for some months now, this has been an issue since day 1. 8 use on podcast that's it. So very hopeful the podcast I use goes to another platform so I can drop this turd like a deuce.
