Good app for the most part, but there are still a number of bugs that happen rather consistently, such as the status that the episode has been played is always changing to not being played. Also, from time to time the app will out of nowhere begin to show ads even though you are a VIP member and then you have to complete a work around to fix it.

Just updated the app and all the podcasts marked 'played' have disappeared again. Now I have to search to see where I left off 😞 disappointed with this update. UPDATR: I checked the history tab and it only shows the recent episodes that I've listened to, not a history. I don't always listen to them in order due to the length of some episodes.

Would you please go to the History page, to see if your play history was logged?

I used to love this app, but lately (last couple months) it stops playing in the middle of an episode and then gives an error that the episode can not be found. At first, I thought it was the podcast that I was listening to. I now realize that it's the app, as it has happened during multiple different podcasts. SO FRUSTRATING! I am looking for a new app. ☹️
