Useless! The search function is broken and therefore you're unable to find the podcasts you want to listen to. Unless the podcast happens to be one of the those featured under its particular category you cannot subscribe to it and access episodes. This is an *essential* function that is completely broken as of now.

We support both iTunes and The Podcast Index search engines, you can switch easily in the app settings. Pls use the in-app support feature if you need help, there are no known issues with search and could be a device/ network issue.

I've enjoyed how easy to search the platform has been, that there aren't a bunch of extra ads or interruptions, and that there are literal years worth of backlogged episodes for the pod casts I really enjoy. If I've had any playback errors or issues over the last year, they were so minor or quickly fixed that I frankly don't remember having had any. I'm not as much of an audio geek, but the audio playback quality has been as good as the presenter's equipment can provide from my experience. :)

I was enjoying this app, with no problems, until the sleep timer stopped working correctly after a recent update. I contacted the devs and got a reply that it sounded like an issue caused by not having background data turned on. I was perplexed by why background data would affect the function of the app while it was open and in use. I hadn't changed any of my settings, before or after the update. The sleep timer had been working fine before...

We haven't modified / touched the sleep timer code in a long time, so as far as we -currently- know from our own testing, the issue you are having is not related to the sleep timer. Our best guess is that your device is going to into 'doze mode' or does not have background data enabled which is causing the audio to stop prematurely.

What's new
