With Podchaser as our partner, we provide a rich experience, by showing you creator profiles, user lists, reviews and ratings.

Overall fantastic podcast app. It's clean and simple, lacking much of the bloat of other apps. My only complaint is that I can't skip to the next podcast using my car's steering wheel controls. Pressing forward/back just fast forwards/reminds a few seconds. Also, when an episode ends, I have to manually play the next. Not useful in the car.

Hi Wendy, thanks for your clear review. Be sure and check the app settings and make sure autoplay is enabled, that should cause the app to keep playing episodes without user interaction.

The only podcasting app I've found that has all the features I want without having to pay an absurd amount. I can have multiple playlists, download podcasts for offline listening, and even sync listening across multiple devices. Given how much more useful this app is than those from large companies *cough*Google*cough*, it's surprising that it's only from a three-person dev team.

Best podcast app period. Download and you will not be disappointed. Quite literally a perfect UI. Four main "tabs" 1. Latest 2. Library (Features Podcast artwork that can be moved around. You'd think having this feature is illegal for most podcast apps) 3. Offline 4. The ability to make playlists!!! Includes a fast scroll to the top/bottom and always remembers where you left off. Love this app, devs clearly listen to the customers
