All I could want Podcatcher Deluxe on my Samsung Galaxy S5 is all I could want. It makes it easy to assemble a playlist , and if your favorite isn't there Kevin will help you get it. It manages subscriptions, and simple finger movements allow you to rearrange the order of playing. When you stop and start over it starts at the right place, and when you detach the earphones it stops as well. Overall I can't think of any improvement possible.
I love this app! I've been using it for a few years now, but have recently encountered a problem. The app now skips backwards or forwards randomly. It's usually no longer than 30 seconds or so, but has skipped time up to a coupe of minutes. I uninstalled, reinstalled, etc, to no avail. I have a galaxy S7. If this little bug can be fixed, or if I can figure out what's going wrong on my end, I will remain a loyal Podcatcher Deluxe user!
This app was great until a few months ago. Suddenly podcasts started shutting down, not saving my place. Had to start over and try to scroll to where I left off. Got so bad that attempts to listen just resulted in "playback error" messages. Uninstalled and switched apps to a more competent podcast app.
EDIT: Originally my review gave the app four stars out of five, because it delivered almost everything I wanted, but not quite everything. Well guess what, it turns out it did deliver everything. I was swiftly informed about the functions I felt were lacking, and now I'm up to speed. Thus, I'm changing my review from 4 to 5 stars. It has everything I need, it's running stably, it doesn't seem to require unnecessary permissions to work, which is always a good sign in my book, and in general a product I would heartily recommend.
Very good app. I have tried four other podcast apps, and this one is the best. The downloads are fast and the controls work like you would expect them to. If there was one suggestion I could make, it would be for the development of a widget, for the home screen, with playback controls.
Developer is very responsive, even to my stupid questions. Worth every penny. Just works.
- Faster podcast suggestion loading
