Love the simplicity and the look. Would like ability to add up next function to make on the fly playlist, though this may make the app more complicated and ruin the beauty of it's current simplicity. I was having an issue with app crashes with some podcasts, but I unsubscribed and subscribed again and it is working better now.

I just want a simple podcast player... Is that so much to ask? As much as I wanted to like this player, it just has too many issues to use full-time. From stopping randomly during play, long load times and difficulty scrolling podcasts with many episodes, lack of a SLEEP function or playback speeds, broken links to podcasts, there are several dealbreakers. Cheers.

Worked great.... at first. Now it will just stop randomly and sometimes it'll restart and more frequently it won't. Also, this does not sync with Android Auto and when I'm in the car is when I listen to podcasts most often. Once you either mark a podcast as played, or you listen to it, the podcast stays in the queue, there's no way to clear them out. Very annoying. So, Bye! It's been real and it's been fun, but it wasn't real fun.

We haven't been able to replicate the random stop you've mentioned. And we've never claimed it syncs with Android Auto.
