God's Good Grief
August 26, 2022
I'm kind of new to the podcast world. So I began searching for a platform where I can listen and came across Playapod. Never heard of it before, decided to try it out for a few days. PROS: NO ads! Cross platform synching, user friendly, create playlists & save fave episodes. Adding & unsubscribing is easy! I was able to search & find all my fave podcasts. For older episodes adjust the number (25, 50, 100, etc) in the settings menu. Love it ♥️

Good app but could be great. It has unintuitive menus. Makes no sense to have to scroll all the way back up to the most recent Episode instead of having a button to do so, nor that from a screen with the currently played episode goes back to the "Playlist" screen and only after that again to the "podcast" one. NOR that the "new" episodes start with the most recently played one, since that can be an episode from years ago. All these little things make it frustrating to have to deal with.

Great product! Clean look, easy to navigate, lots of ways to sort and personalize each subscription. I use the playlist feature to queue up podcasts to listen to while working. You can pull in anything with an RSS feed and listen in your browser if you don't want to download an app. Podcasting 2.0 compliant. I've used the app on a Galaxy Tab for about a year.
