  • Lastest version breaks everything

    By W-a-s-p
    Loved it until this version. Going to the discover menu gives me an internet connection error. Can’t subscribe to any new podcasts. Also, creating an account gives me a registration error. I’ll change my rating if they fix it, but until then I’ll switch back to the Apple podcast app

  • Recent crash behavior

    By Glypto
    I hope the developers read this review. I use this app for several years and have loved it. It’s been my most used app. But very recently all I get is a lengthy red splash screen and then it crashes. Sometimes after many multiple attempts it may ultimately work, or not. I use it on my iPhone X. I hope you are getting the crash data. I would love a response from the developers. And I would be happy to answer any questions that might help you debug this issue. In the meantime I would not recommend this app to anyone. I will be happy to update to 5 stars once this is corrected.
  • Don’t get it

    By Shammyet
    I don’t understand how the ratings are so high on this podcast. I bought it thinking it must offer something over overcast and I was wrong. It’s not user friendly at all. Personal opinion is it’s not better looking. It has some strange things like you can’t download episodes unless you subscribe. Its fails to download episodes and then you have to troubleshoot to listen. Don’t even get me started on the sync issues between devices. It’s just corky. Further more upsetting is I emailed the developers and no response after days. I could go up in rating but the lack of care from them is a major burn for me. Very disappointing. I really want to like this but, oh well.
  • Too many clicks to play

    By AJrajrajr321947281
    The app is okay but it takes WAY to many clicks to play an episode and get to the screen where you can pause and fast forward. This is definitely not worth the money when you can get free apps that do the same thing.
  • Doesn't work with iOS 10.3 beta 4

    By FutureDPT
    I love the app, but the discover feature is weak. I literally open up the apple podcast app every now and then to see what new podcasts that I’ve never heard of are worth a listen because the discover feature is so lacking in this app.
  • I LOVE Pocketcasts

    By Mill2124
    That pretty much sums it up. This app is amazing. I was super pumped it was in the app store when I switched from Android. 2 e-props.
  • It was great, now casting doesn’t work

    By GoodGuyJimmy
    The only reason I got this app easy to cast the podcasts. Now that doesn’t work.
  • Love the app but not a fan of the new update

    By SouthMcMerlin
    I’ve had the app for a year and half now and I enjoy the heck out of it! How it looks, how it runs, the features, just everything! But in the new update I’m slightly bummed that in the previous version I could 3D Touch on iOS and mark as played from the app icon and now that has been removed and it has removed that simple yet greatly appreciated convenience. Please bring it back!!
  • Powerful

    By Tad Davis
    This is the slickest podcast player I’ve found. The app is organized a little differently from most, and managing the “up next” queue looked daunting at first. The flexibility of the app means some extra effort starting out. But it only took a couple of days to get the hang of it, and now I have things exactly the way I want them. Comes with a watch app too, which is useful.
