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. :)

Thanks Chrisy, what an awesome review!

Awesome. My only complaint is transferring your data over to a new phone (essentially you can do it manually, which doesnt preserve your watched stuff, or pay for their pro subscription, which is excessive if thats the only feature you want). Support is great though, and I love the layout and the way it works.

Thanks Corey, the VIP subscription is the only way we keep this app going. We're one of the very few podcast apps in the Play store that doesn't moneytize with ugly banner ads in the app. We will keep trying to add more VIP features to make it more compelling deal.

The best ad-free podcast app! Good interface and many features found in paid apps. I use this everyday and appreciate it! One issue though - the buttons on the notification are far too small, while there is a bunch of wasted space. Makes it hard to pause and rewind. actually has no annoying ads (yet!)

Hi Dan! The layout and size of the buttons in the media notifications are designed by your device manufacturer. Please reach out to me through our in-app support (in the left navigation). If I can get a screen shot from you I will file a bug report with Motorola and try to get their UI improved.
