Very nice player, and extremely responsive developer. My Samsung device was stopping this app in the middle of podcasts. I had to set its battery use to unrestricted, and that stopped most of the trouble. The developer took time to figure this out and let me know. Still loses its place once in a while, or "remembers" where it was when you last started a segment, meaning you'll occasionally repeat some minutes of a podcast. These are small issues. Overall, I'm very happy!

Hi David. Anytime should remember its position within an episode, so if you go back to that episode start playing where you left off. When you say you have to scroll through episodes, is this when you go into a podcast's details to see episodes? Please can you email me at so I can better understand the issue. Thank you.

Good app that could be outstanding with a few improvements. 1) app isn't Android Auto compatible, so it doesn't cast to the stereo headset in my car. If I start a podcast using my phone, it will still broadcast through my stereo, but I cannot interact with the app through the car's headset. 2) when listening in my car, and I shut off my vehicle, the app forgets where I stopped listening to the podcast. So 3*'s. But no ads and no special permissions gives it an extra *, so I'm rating it 4*'s.

Thank you for the detailed feedback Jeffrey. I have not added support specifically for Android Auto yet, but If you have some time, please could you contact me at to help me understand better which parts are not working and how it should work with your car headset. Thanks.

This is a fantastic podcast player. Better than the popular ones. The UI is snappy and you can add any podcasts rss feed that you want. Minimal and everything feels like it is in the right place. Beautifully designed. It also has a great and fast podcast search tool. The whole app is lag free. The discovery tab has some great suggestions, though they are not extensive nor categorized. I've downloaded a lot of podcast players. After years, I think I've found the best.
