Updated. This is a decent podcast player. The best thing about it is that it finds podcasts other players can't or won't. One of my favorites is no longer on podbean so I dumped them. I found the show with Podcast Player. It's fairly easy to download and play shows with good sound quality. On the downside the ads are intrusive and you can't set the download directory. Also it keeps the screen lit which burns up battery unless you manually turn it off.

Good features! I like that you can mark episodes as played and sort by several options. I noticed some small bugs during playback with skipping forward or back not working once or twice, but that seemed to only happen rarely, as it's working consistently now. I'm happy I found the app, and appreciate the features!

9/16 update: there has be no update/fix to issues below. Do not use this app. Time to delete and find another player. #1 The app doesn't delete played episodes at any point in time... I have found months of played episodes still taking up storage. #2 Now the app doesn't finish checking for new episodes. The downloading podcast data remains in notifications until a hard reset. I have been using this app for 2 years+.
