EDIT 6/22/2022: The problem still exists, plus now the next podcast no longer plays when the previous one finishes. I've checked the settings numerous times, to no avail. Taking away another star. It's too bad because I've used this app for YEARS I don't know if there was an update or something, but I can no longer mass delete episodes. Only a few delete at a time, and a lot of them take numerous attempts before they are finally gone. I'm taking off a couple of stars until this can be resolved.

Update 6/12/22 from 5 to 2 stars. I really appreciate the simplicity and functionality of this app, does everything I want it to. However after most recent update (which was months ago at this point), I am only able to delete one downloaded episode at a time regardless of how many I've selected. Pretty obnoxious, not the worst thing but it used to not be an issue.

The most major flaw is that it overheats and drains my battery on my LG V60 running Android 10 just streaming episodes. Next, if I clear the app from running in the background, it stops running altogether. To stream, you need to go through several steps. Not everyone wants to just download then listen. Edit: The battery drain continued After I stopped streaming and turned off all automation. Edit: The problem of overhearing during streaming still not fixed. Sad, this was a good app.
