Review from Anthony Fincher
Mostly ok... Mostly adequate. Fails to respond to headset start/stop commands on Galaxy S3. Uninstalled.
App doesn't allow for storage of podcasts on removable media, had a bunch in listen offline and ALL just randomly re-downloaded and filled up ALL my internal phone memory. Seems this app is intent on people using all their data if not on unlimited
I was forced to come over from the complete disaster that was howl fm. I paid for a year subscription over there, and instead of giving my money back they sent me here. While it is better than howl, there are still many issues. It is clunky, there are way too many ads for premium content, it is disorganized and takes too many clips to get to the show you want. Names are all screwed up. No way to go to particular point in podcast. Worst podcast app since howl.
It would be 5 stars except that the podcasts I listen to keep randomly getting interrupted by ads. The podcast will indicate I listened to the whole thing, but it could be 15 minutes in and it cuts off and goes straight to some dumb advertisment. I get advertising, but do it before or after, not smack dab in the middle.
- Can't rate and review podcasts - app performance is awful. - Takes up to a week for new episodes to appear for multiple shows. This is some of the down the worst development, if you can call it development I've come across. They literally fight and lie to people who report issues. Some of the biggest snowflakes in Android Development I've ever dealt with. They can't fix anything.
Loved this app when I first downloaded it a year ago! I use it for hours on end as I do work and commute. Over the past month, however, it has been unable to buffer my podcasts and some have even been listed as unavailable. I may be forced to switch platforms in the near future as this problem only is becoming more frequent!
When I first downloaded it I thought it was great. Ads are infrequent and unobtrusive considering the service provided, and I found all my favorite podcasts no sweat. However, for reasons I have yet to figure out, lately this app has been practically useless. It won't open more than half of the time and crashes frequently. I really wish it would work again because I do like this more than any other podcast app.
