Hasn't been updated in roughly 4 years. Wish I would have checked before paying money for this. A lot of headset button functionality is broken, auto-downloading doesn't seem to work correctly, etc. User interface is dated and confusing as hell. Sucks that this dev is resting on their laurels but still gets paid for this, it's just a lazy rip-off now if you ask me.

I have used DoggCatcher for over a decade. It has served me well through several Android versions. It has its quirks, but nothing you can't work around. Admittedly, it hasn't been updated in a while, but it is still chugging along - keeping up with and playing all of my favorite podcasts. Whenever I have had actual problems with the app, the developer was quick to respond.

Really would love an update for this... This has been my preferred podcasting app for almost a decade, but now it's constantly crashing on me to the point that it's almost unusable. Sometimes it's random, but it's typically when another app takes the audio focus (when I get a text or message, any kind of notification). It's incredibly frustrating and I'd love it if this was fixed in some kind of update.
