Worst podcast app I've ever used. Can't make a playlist. There's a queue that looks right, but instead it keeps playing an already played podcast that I am unable to remove from said queue once it starts playing. It's inconvenient to mark shows already played, can't default show order oldest to newest, played shows clog up lists of episodes, no obvious options to hide them. Overall a very user unfriendly app.

The content is great, but the app is absolutely terrible. The queue feature is useless. You can add episodes to it, but it doesn't advance through episodes as they are completed. Also, there is not an easy way to actually navigate to the queue from within the app. I really, really wish Luminary had RSS feeda that would let you listen to their content using an app that was created by people that have something resembling a clue.

You have my favorite podcast of all time on this app! I don't like that there's no settings to make adjustments, auto play doesn't work unless the screen is on and the app is open. Picture quality is grainy. There should be more to this app for the amount you charge.
