I have used Podkicker happily for years and years. I even paid for the Pro version (which has not started me from paid promotions, recently). I used to love this app because it was simple, streamlined, and did the one thing I wanted it to do -- play podcasts. It is now failing to do that. Recently, this app has really gone downhill. It crashes multiple times during regular use. Podkicker Pro can no longer play podcasts. Also, there's promoted ads for unwanted podcasts, and other annoyances.

I've used Podkicker Prod for about 8 years now, and I've always loved the simple, user-friendly experience. But I paid up for an ad-free version, and now there are "sponsored" podcasts cluttering up my feed list. Not cool, guys. That, with along with a few bugs that haven't been fixed in years, is making me switch once and for all.

4/30/2024 I've been using this app for well over a decade. It used to be a joy to use, but now there are "sponsored" podcasts in the listing. I bought the Pro version to avoid ads! Also, the app no longer automatically goes to the next podcast. This is a royal pain in the rear, especially when I'm driving long distances. I see other users are having issues, and I'm going to check out their alternative app suggestions.
