Great free podcast app w/ a few flaws I've been using this app for a couple of weeks after using Podkicker for a few months and trying AntennaPod. This is a much better app but it still is missing a few features. It's still a bit unstable and crashes sometime, which is understandable given its Alpha status, but I hope for improvement soon. It has a great layout and navigation is intuitive. Downloads are very customizable. My biggest complaint is that it does not support headphone controls. I hate having to pull my phone out of my pocket to stop the feed. I also haven't found a way to create a customized playlist, but perhaps I'm missing something there. In fact, the app doesn't truly have a playlist feature, because once you've completed a podcast it doesn't automatically play the next in the list. However, the search feature is FAR FAR superior to that of AntennaPod and the interface is so much superior to Podkicker that I'm sticking with this one for now. I hope that subsequent updates address my concerns.
Five stars for an alpha. I've tried podkicker, doggcatcher, beyondpod, pocket casts and a bunch of other podcast apps that now seem either bloated or outdated. This app and another new app, antennapod, have a lot of potential to be better than those. But this has some clunky layout and navigation issues that makes it awkward to get to download and listen. The downloads tab could be more functional. The app looks nice though, notification is done well and works as intended and only needs 4.1 controls to be perfect.
Really Great! It's a really useful app for podcasts, I can't stress how great it is. The interface is clean and simple, the design works great, and it's made listening to podcasts really very easy. It's fantastic all around. Does what it says it does, simply and neatly. The only drawback is a slight glitch I'm having with my Nexus 4. When I ran it on an HTC One V, the app worked fine and downloaded new podcasts automatically. On the Nexus, it seems to need a manual refresh despite the fact that I've got the settings set so that it should update on its own every day.
Very nice app especially for an alpha I just started using this app but so far I'm very impressed. I'm looking to move away from Listen (I know it's outdated but it always just worked) now that Reader is going to be shut down and I figured it's time to move on. I've looked at a bunch of the top paid podcast apps but they always seem to have a catch that I wouldn't care for even though the amount of little features they have are impressive; mainly variable playback speed but I'm not missing it now so I don't think I'll miss it in the future. This app imported my feeds from OPML but it missed a couple but a simple search found them in the app itself. No searching for the feed URL. Very nice considering the other app I was trying out couldn't manage as much. Overall this app is simple to use and very organized. A few more features here and there would be cool but as it stands I'm highly impressed. A 5th star will be awarded if the developer can break the player out of the feed listing. It's annoying that if I pause what I'm listening to, the player controls are hidden and I have to hit play at the top of the entry again.
Very pretty Works good too. Needs auto delete after finish, podcasts should be hidden from music apps and fix blinking of both the page with podcast info, and lock screen. It eats through battery even when not in use.
Exactly what I was looking for It's a minimalist podcast app with a great UI. The streams can cash the app sometimes if you pause it and play it constantly but outside of that I love it. The icon looks great too. I have not seen a better app than this for podcasts.
