  • Disappointing

    By roscoelee66
    I was using a different podcast app that was way easier to use.there are too many extra steps for downloading, making a playlist and listening to my podcasts. Plus I can’t figure out how to automatically delete episodes after playing so it’s not intuitive at all for average user.
  • Best pod cast app!

    By Scool12
    This is the only pod cast app I’ll use!! All the rest are cumbersome and annoying. Try it!
  • Best Podcast App

    By Max Benasty
    Hands down the best out there. “Delete played downloads” feature makes clearing your memory a breeze. Thanks guys!
  • Please give us dark mode

    By DevanEve
    I love this app so much!!! It's the only one that has all of the settings I love. Edit: after continuously using this app there is only one thing I wished it had: dark mode. Adding that would make it perfect
  • Outstanding

    By MVP53
    Best podcast app. Puts Apple's to shame.
  • Very solid podcast app

    By GES1261
    Works simple and reliably. You can stream or download and listen offline.
  • Cannot get previous episodes

    By trgjkmgdwyhgiiyghferi)bfst
    I just downloaded the app. I like the screen while playing a podcast. It allows me to easily set the playback point. However, I see a list of episodes, and I tap one, and nothing happens. I try to select download, and I see an empty screen that says I have no downloads; and there is instruction to tap a podcast, select its menu, and then select download. There is no menu. There is no place to submit questions or comments about the app. I am very disappointed. Maybe this will update itself over time. There is no indication from the app about how to find the menus it mentions. I have tapped all icons on the screen with no luck.
  • Decent player, delete functionality is terrible

    By panama_joe
    The player is alright, does what it needs to do for the most part. One thing I don’t like is its “delete” functionality. If you go to delete an episode from a playlist, the default behavior is to actually delete the episode, so that it won’t show up on your phone ever again! I have no idea why this functionality even exists, let alone why it’s the default. When you delete something from a playlist, what you want is to take it off the playlist. Why would you want to delete it permanently? Makes no sense. And the worst part is if you delete an episode, the only way to get it back is to unsubscribe from the podcast then resubscribe. What’s funny is this misfeature got even worse recently. When deleting an episode, it used to ask you “are you sure?” Now it gives you the option to suppress that dialog. I made the mistake of choosing that option. The problem is, there’s no way to reset the option and get the dialog back. I even tried “reset all settings” and that didn’t work. So yeah, they need to fix this.
  • It is easy to use.

    I struggled with Apple’s podcast app and finally gave up. This app is easy to use. Very easy to delete a download after you listened.
  • Many basic features missing

    By Dodeka
    The lack of some basic features such as being able to search on keyword within a Target podcast makes it clumsy to use. . Some podcasts have 200 or even 400 episodes so it’s frustrating to try to find a particular episode by keyword. Another feature missing: font size; it is hard to read the text descriptions
