Procast is one of my favorite apps on iOS. Ever since I met the original creator, I fell in love with the idea of a podcasting app for the pro podcast listeners. That said, the Android version is still missing the killer feature I so much love Procast for - the audio cuts. The Android version works smoothly as butter otherwise, but without this feature, I can only give it four stars at the moment. Sorry, guys. Great work otherwise, and hope that my pleas will be answered in a future update.

This app does one thing extremely important when compared to other podcast apps out there. IT DOESN'T CENSOR. As far as I can tell, It doesn't delay, block, censor or deplatform controversial content creators like the "don't be evil" Google podcast app does. Of course you can change the playbackspeed (which is a must nowadays) and the UI is simple, which unlike other fancier apps, makes it EASY TO USE WHILE DRIVING. Finally someone nailed the perfect. non-intrusive, "you decide" podcast app.

I got this to download podcasts on wifi, so it would not use mobile data at work. I turned on the option to only download via wifi, and turned off background data. Despite this, to my great shock, when playing downloaded podcasts, not only did Procast use some foreground data, it used a lot, in two days 113Mb, several times more than even the wifi data for downloading the podcast. I stopped using Podbean because it had used 20Mb in a week. I can assure you I will be deleting Procast.
