This is my go to app for podcast listening. Over 6000 hours pegged listening with it. What more could I say beyond that. This app is easy to use, keeps playlists, podcasts you're following, options to choose to use features or not. Works with both wifi and cellular and runs in backround, you can put phone to sleep and listen all night and day without running out of battery charge. Using ver. 9.09 Did not upgrade to the latest version that was released in December based on reviews of the changes.

I switched from stitcher a few months ago. It's easy to use and has good features. I really wanted to like this app, but it's proven too buggy. It was downloading the same episode of a podcast over and over, so I had to unsubscribe to stop it. Then, it auto dowloaded a bunch of old episodes another podcast. I've given up, and I'm trying another.

I have used this app for years. The longer I've used it, the more of a problem I have. What happens is, while playing, audio is either completely skipped or goes back sometimes by minutes. I thought it was the podcast, but it happens on all of them. It got to the point where I couldn't even put together what was happening in one story because it skipped so much.
