  • Fast and flexible app

    By Von Leipzig
    The only podcast app that works on my iPhone4 while i get my replacement phone. This app has a lot of flexibility in the settings that i'm used to in other apps, and its very resource light on the system.
  • Best Podcast App!

    By Telegenic Snowflake
    Powerful and efficient! I am now listening to a lot more podcasts with less effort than before using the stock app. Easy to discover new topics of interest! Very intuitive to use. Highly recommended!
  • I love it!

  • This app is great but..

    By JayBear@@
    I don’t know why the KR podcasts cannot be accessible. (Some are okay but most of them are not accessible. ) I may have to use English podcasts only for now....
  • Still the best podcast player for iOS

  • needs work, and more frequently

    the app has potential but it’s not able to be usable for me because the developers place the downloaded files on your phone in a location that isn’t reachable by the user outside the app, nor is backed up by itunes/icloud. So it’s impossible to retain files downloaded onto another phone you get, onto your computer, etc. They need some backend housekeeping to have the files accessible to backups, and show up in apples cumbersome “itunes filesharing” so you’re not left with no episodes. (Many podcasts only put the last dozen or so episodes, making you not able to redownload them because this apps poor, anti-user idea of how to store the files.) apples app, for instance, has the episodes all show up and be copied over like pictures when plugged into computer, or can by simply transferred into the computers itunes library via itunes, and can be backed up and restored to your phone (like if you get another phone or are having issues and want/need to perform a “restore”) secondly, some interface annoyances. there’s no playback order control, to play “oldest to newest” type setup. So podcasts that are a “series” will play backwards, that is, newest to oldest. So for example, if you start listening to one say from the other week, when the episode ends, it won’t play the “next” one, but the prior one. Another issue is cumbersome navigation interface, like no memory history of where you’re at, so when you leave and come back, you’re where you were. There’s no “back button” when you leave a place to be able to go back. Great example is if you’re in a particular podcast, and you tap downloads, you can’t go back to the podcast you were on and rather have to re-navigate your way back to where you were. Annoying! Combine all that with other issues with the fact that this app is so rarely updated, that it’s close to being considered abandonware. Check out the apps update history for evidence.
  • This is great

    By Acock44
    I am amazed how much better this is than the Apple app
  • Playing one episode at a time

    By vipsfour
    5 stars now that the pod cruncher app lets you just play one episode without skipping to the next
  • Needs work

    By K3nH2l
    Since iOS 11 the app has gone from rock-solid to flaky as heck. Now it runs sluggishly and crashes regularly
