It works well, but is infuriating. It plays whenever it bloody well likes. If I plug my phone in to charge, it starts playing a podcast. If I take the phone out it starts playing too. I keep losing my place if the volume is off, it may have been playing for half an hour before I notice it started itself. It interrupts my music to randomly start playing. Infuriating, uninstalling for now.
Consistently loses my place if I pause a podcast and come back to it later. It will resume play at an earlier point in the recording, seemingly at random. The "continuous playback" feature is also fairly buggy. It sometimes jumps to a podcast from my play history, rather than the next one in my queue. These features not working properly is very annoying, but the app is free, so I guess you get what you pay for.
The episodes you've played often jump around, and it isn't clear how you get back to a play list (queue) you've put together. Today I was trying to fight through this, and then the app crashed. ALSO. Can you PLEASE give the option of organising the shows by publishing date? Having to scroll down 500 episodes every time I start the app is not a fun task. Edit: jumping fixed, thanks.
You keep advertising White Supremacist and alt-right fascist Milo Yiannopoulos every time I open the app. Stop promoting racist garbage, that is not what I signed up for when I downloaded an app to play podcasts. Milo is an immoral and inhumane person with little regard for human life, he is responsible for hatred and I've uninstalled your podcast for this. Have some morals, don't support racism
This app mostly works well and is almost everything I'm looking for in a podcast app, but it has one glaring flaw: not infrequently, at the end of a podcast, instead of playing the next one in the queue, it'll play the previous one in the feed. Which is no longer on my device and therefore has to be re-downloaded, which wastes a lot of data as it does something I didn't want it to do in the first place (and turning off background data doesn't seem to have stopped it from using background data...)
Would be nice to have an ad free option. Paid for removing the ads (worth it I think) but it randomly will freeze in the middle of playing back a few podcasts and prevents me from playing a new one. SUPER FRUSTRATING! I have restarting the app, but it does nothing. Everything else is nice, but it's pretty maddening to experience this. 3 stars: a well designed app, but caution regarding playing certain podcasts.
