Tried this for 2 weeks and it works great.. when it actually works. The problem is it only works when it wants to. Either I get a 404 error when trying to play an episode, or when i do find one that plays, it will randomly stop playing due to "unstable service." I live in the mountains, and service can be spotty, but I've never had an issue with Stitcher or Spotify playing an episode. Case in point an hour long episode will stop playing 8-10 times and need to be manually restarted every time.

Did this issue occur with the downloaded episodes? Would you please try to download an episode to see if the issue still occurs?

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
