Steep learning curve while figuring out how the app functions and how to control it. Podcasts I've chosen seem buried in clutter. It's not obvious how to specify what to listen to next and in what order. The app lacks clear visual clues to identify which episodes I've already heard. Overall a confusing and frustrating experience. I'll continue trying to master the UI, but my impression is that the design is flawed and could be much simpler and intuitive.
Has been very glitchy. Stops in the middle of listening, slow to load or just doesn't, slow to start playing, and errors messages.
Used to be an excellent way to find and listen to podcasts; however, as of the 'bigly update', it's become slow and erratic. Here's hoping it becomes usable again!
Love this app! I recently got into listening to podcasts and I used to use Spotify to listen to the shows that I liked. However, Spotify has a limited selection of podcasts and many of the recommended podcasts weren't available to me. Luckily I found RadioPublic! I love that it's free and has no advertisements. If I were to be picky, I'd say that the only two problems are that sometimes the podcast repeats the previous 5 seconds of the stream before correcting itself, and, the 5 second rewind is much too short. Still, I love the app and it's easy to use functionality.
Hasn't automatically downloaded any of my shows. Also hasn't deleted the ones I manually downloaded and listened too (I have it set to automatically delete). It also won't let me manually delete them either - nothing happens when I select it. It would be nice to be able to order podcasts from the first to latest show. Especially if you have 2 parters, as it will play them in reverse. Also, a quick way to mark which episodes you've listened too. I moved onto this from Spotify and it took me a long time to mark the 60 odd that I had listened too by opening every episode. I'm hoping the download issues are fixed. It would make me keep this app. Otherwise, it's not very usable in the most basic of terms.
I subscribe to about 40 different podcasts that I listen to regularly and downloaded this app because I no longer have an IPhone. Visually easy to use. I LOVE that I can request new podcasts and they actually add them. The 5 second rewind is a little annoying but tolerable. I also like that the sort is alphabetical. (Spotify is annoying because they don't sort your podcasts.)
This is a bigly update, believe me, it's fantastic.
Support for Android 8. Create one tap shortcuts to your favorite shows from your launcher. Tap and hold the RadioPublic logo and get quick shortcuts to key screens in the app. Huge. So much great stuff here.
Smart Folders, they are going to change how you use the app, believe me. They're tremendous, just terrific. Create one to organize all your comedy podcasts, maybe one for your commute. I don't know, but believe me you'll love 'em.
