I love listening to podcasts on my way to work. There is a great variety to choose from on this app. What really irks me though, is the ads. Once the ad is over it doesn't just revert back to the podcast, it wants you to click an extremely small x (which often leads to "clicking" the ad anyway) before you can return. This is not feasible while driving so I end up switching back to the radio. I don't have time to pull over to close the ads. Can you make the ads go away when their time is up?

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 it's not always intuitive and I have to "force close" to shut it down, otherwise it always stays on in the background. The ads are also a little intrusive when first opened but they are easily closed.

On my iPhone I would give this app five stars. But on my Android phone it crashes constantly. Once it has crashed I cannot fast forward it to where I was before it crashed. I have to either start over on the podcast no matter how far I am into it, or just quit and start a different podcast. I never get to finish a podcast on this app. So I have to dig out my iPhone which works, except for the SIM card reader which is damaged. So I have to use it for everything but phone calls.
