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.)
Visually well-designed, but frequently deletes my downloaded episodes before I've had the chance to listen to them. Sometimes episodes get deleted while I'm listening to them if I pause. I couldn't find a way to report this in the app and got no response on Twitter. Some shows are missing, but you can request them. It would be nice if you got a notification when the show was added instead of having to check back until it shows up. A promising app, but there are so many others that don't delete my episodes during my commute.
Visually very pleasing. I like it alot but I'm not loving the 5 seconds rewind. It's too short. 10 or 15 seconds would be perfect!
The best podcast app in terms of usage. It works and well organized, however I could not find my favorite shows. Nothing from aljazeera in the library and no local podcast from Nigeria. For now I have to use this and podcast-go simultaneously. Sucks. Could we please know the size of a podcast before downloading, it could be detailed along side episode info.
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.
