  • One of my top two podcast players

    By YoungKREW
    As a podcaster, I’ve used just about every podcast player out there and I’d put PodCruncher tied at number one with Overcast for my favorite. The only feature I wish they would add is an option for a played episode to automatically be deleted once completed. Overcast doesn’t play video while PodCruncher does. That is a huge plus for PodCruncher. It would also be nice for PodCruncher to add landscape orientation. As of right now, landscape only works while playing video. My phone is usually in landscape in the car because it’s better for mapping. When flipping between apps, PodCruncher while come up sideways in portrait mode. This makes it difficult to select podcasts. Overall, I’d highly recommend it.
  • Does it all

    Been using for three years. No problems.
  • Waste of time

    By Asliton
    Cannot listen without subscribing, cannot unsubscribe if you do not like it. ZERO star.
  • The best podcasting app imo, just needs one thing...

    By danbnnsn
    Been using this a long time, has exactly the interface and almost all the features I want. Really pleased with the latest update too, they overhauled one part of the app that needed it - the look of it was a few OS updates old - and they made it compatible with the new phones, but didn't fix anything that wasn't broken. All the features and functionality I love are intact, and they didn't add anything extraneous. But they just need to add one feature - the ability to search within your library of subscribed podcasts. Like some podcasts have hundreds of episodes and I might want to revisit ones with one particular guest, and it would be so much better to be able to search rather than have to scroll through the full list.
  • Does what I need

    By JMC1971
    This is my favorite podcast app. I bought and deleted several other apps before finding PodCruncher. It’s easy to use and rock solid reliable. The playlist features are the best thing about PodCruncher for me. It’s much more flexible than other apps. I listen to old radio shows and I like to make a static playlist I can listen to over and over. Other apps wouldn’t let me put the episodes in any order I wanted and/or they would delete an episode after it played. PodCruncher allows me to create, order, and keep a playlist.
  • To the Developers

    By Here_Comes_Dat_Boi
    Could you PLEASE fix the bug that causes the iPhone lock screen player control panel to get stuck on a previous podcast episode from long before even though I’m listening to something several episodes ahead from a completely different podcast? The play/pause, skip forward/backward buttons work, but the time counter and cover art stay on the old episode until I restart my phone. I tried to contact support, but was unable to send an email because I don’t use the native Apple email app. I used my last podcast app for over a year (1,200+ hours), and bugs is what caused me to delete it and look for a new one. Considering PodCruncher is a paid app, this inconvenience is exactly the kind of thing I was hoping to avoid.
  • Repair this app

    By JayKayWoo
    This was my favorite iPhone app, it’s been a nightmare since the IOS 11 update. Please update this. It has become unbearably slow.
  • Better than iOS standard

    By Burnt Hurtington
    Way better than the standard podcast app.
  • Fantastic Podcast App

    By Assignmeanameplease
    It works well and is easy to use and has multiple filters to make navigating your subscriptions intuitive and painless. Love it, and the latest update fixed a long term but manageable font issue. Now the app is perfect. Intuitive and light years ahead of Apple's offering.
  • The best

    By Johnny 1264
    I’ve used it for over 10 years now. Without a doubt the best podcast player out there.
