Podchaser Integration
We were the first, and currently only app to have full podchaser integration! With Podchaser as our partner, we provide a rich experience, by showing you creator profiles, user lists, reviews and ratings.

The format is pretty good. It's important for me to see which pods are new and which I have already listened to. Big problem is that the pod will repeat in the middle, basically go back like 5 min and replay right in the middle of the pod. I had this problem in the past with another pod player and never had it with Google pod player or with spotify.

Hi Jeff, we're rolling out an update to help mitigate this right now. So many podcast hosts are starting to use dynamic ad insertions it's making seeking unreliable, weird playback glitches, etc.

This is a tremendous app! Google's decision to drop their podcast app left me in the lurch. Luckily I found Podcast Guru. I easily migrated my favorite podcasts. The intuitive controls made the process a breeze, and the interface works flawlessly. During the few times I had issues I was able to solve the problem thanks to great Help support. Can't say enough good things about Podcast Guru!

I, like most of you, am trying to find an alternative to Google podcasts since YouTube is terrible for that. This is my favorite of the ones I've tried except for two things. I wish I could slow down podcasts for accessibility reasons and I wish in the library screen, that there would be a dot on the subscribed podcasts that have new episodes. I wouldn't mind paying for an app for better features as they deserve it, but I'm not thrilled about another subscription.

Hi Betsy, you can slow down podcasts if you join our VIP tier and unlock that feature (we are half the price of pocketcasts and most of our competitors). Also on the Library tab you can enable "Show New Episodes Count" in the upper right menu, it does the same thing as the red-dot, while showing you a counter of "new" episodes at the same time.

What's new

We've added future support for email logins, an account deletion feature, and lots of bug fixes and improvements!
