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.

It's a great app for playing podcasts. However, there a few too many bugs that need to be fixed. 1) Podcasts will randomly pause playback. Hitting play will start it again, but it rewinds back and replays some of what you've already heard. This can fix playback for a little awhile, but it will pause again after a random number of minutes. 2) Downloads/Updating never stops. Once you open the app, it will begin to check for updates and download new episodes. Once complete, the notification will remain and never finish. 3) The Pause/Play button on the notification drop down and on the lock screen will only display a pause button after the app has been running for awhile. It will still do both pause and play actions, but it will always appear as a pause button. Annoying bugs when you're using an app you paid for.

I like this as a podcasting app, but it won't cast to Google home so that makes it really difficult to use all the time. I wish they would add this feature in an intuitive way to implement. I don't like maintaining two completely separate podcast apps, especially since I like to listen to many of them both in the car and at home. If this would broadcast through Google home devices, it would be a five-star hands down. It is easy to manage podcasts and playlists once you get the hang of it.
