Glitches on Android... a lot of features are great. I really like the ease of finding podcasts, the optional settings, volume boost, etc. I do NOT like that it often randomly stops playing. Doesn't seem connected to service, as it frequently occurs in my home while I'm on wifi. I thought it was prob my old Motorola phone, but is happening at same frequency with my new Samsung. Also totally unreliably marks episodes as played. I keep relistening to the same episodes. Boooo

Please navigate to the Profile page in the app, click on the "Send Feedback" button, and select "Report a Problem" to submit the report logs to our technical team. This will help us in addressing and resolving the issue more effectively.

Good set of features, but somewhat buggy: (1) played episodes pop back into the New Episodes list; (2) some episodes appear twice in New and Downloaded Episodes lists; (3) episodes sometimes start playing at random offsets rather than the beginning. These issue happen randomly. (4) "Report a Problem" doesn't work - it just opens a "sharing" dialog for the log file instead of sending it to the developer.

Did this issue occur with every podcast or just a specific one? If a specific one, would you please let us know the podcast title and episode title?

Good app. When Google podcast announced they were shutting off, I imported my podcasts here. I would just fix the auto download settings. I guess it defaulted to auto- downloading all my podcasts, and it took me a week to discover why all my internal storage disappeared. Default should always be not to download and to stream podcasts. Otherwise, seems to be great.
