This is my favourite app for listening to podcasts. Every month or so I find myself randomly looking at other podcast apps and trying them out but I always end up coming back to this one because it is the best one I have ever used. I definitely recommend it :) My one suggestion would be to have a "play next" option. If not sure if play later is that? But I find that it's a little confusing. "Play next" and "add to play next". Or alternatively "add to queue". Options like this are something I love in music apps so it would be very useful in this app. Other than that, no complaints :) keep up the good work!
This is one of the apps I use most on my phone and I'm really happy with it! You can easily import a new show if you cannot find it in the app's catalogue, and it allows you to choose exactly what gets downloaded when. I also contacted support a few times when I couldn't quite figure something out and they were really helpful and friendly. Thanks Player FM!
thanks for the response to the global vs. individual feed settings. updating my review accordingly. REVIEW: settings and features are decently robust. not as powerful as doggcatcher but it doesn't freeze your phone up like doggcatcher can when it's updating upon opening and it gives you the ability to listen to your subscriptions and episodes online (doggcatcher doesn't have this feature). five stars and i would pay for it if it had more power-user settings like doggcatcher. i've tried about 10 players and this one and doggcatcher are the only two to consider if you want control and common sense features. chromecast is a make or break for me and it's integrated on both doggcatcher and playerfm.
I finally decided to uninstall. Sometimes the app will not download newest podcast episodes overnight despite being connected to wifi. Also, sometimes when I hold the play button on a podcast episode to manually download it, the app will select a different episode to download. I've just had enough bad, random experiences with this app that I've finally decided to pay for a different podcast app.
Horrible. I searched for the casts I wanted and it started a giant que if episodes to download. Then started auto downloading the latest episode of everything. Even after "auto download" was turned off. No way to delete the list of all the episodes. Swiping does something but doesn't actually delete or remove from list.
This is a fantastic podcast app! I usually don't care to write reviews on apps since I tend to get rid of them pretty quick, but I felt I should write one for this particular app because it works well. My one piece of critisim is that the home screen can be a little messy with the recommended and subscribed podcasts in the same area. Anyways, great app that always works well for me!
