This app might be decent if it didn't randomly crash wherever it felt like it for no reason. Extremely agitating
Love the app! Missing one star because there is no “select all” option for Play Later section. From time to time, I want to clear up all the saved episode in the Play Later section but it is a PAIN to individually select each episode and remove them...
The best podcasting app with the amazing ability to bookmark anything while listening, make notes and save the spot. Great for when it comes up in conversation later, you can literally go right to the spot where you heard it!
Unless paying for a subscription magically solves these issues it might be better to find a new option if these are deal breakers for you. Also don’t waste your time sending any issues to their support email because they don’t respond now that Maple Media has taken over. It seems they only respond here to address negative reviews since they are made public. Customer service theater? -Shows do not properly resume anymore. Lots of other people are experiencing the same issue. You have to play another show or close the app for it to resume properly. If you don’t do this then forget about resuming where you left off. If you pause the show and leave the app open, the show will restart from the beginning once the app refreshes itself. -App can take minutes to load and can also take minutes to retrieve new shows. This happens regardless if on WiFi or not. Enjoy constantly trying to refresh with no new results even though new episodes are clearly available. Seems this got even worse once they introduced the forced ads. -Eats incredible amounts of battery even if you are playing pre downloaded shows (non streaming). Two hours of play time can drain the battery by 40% or more even if your battery peak performance is at 100%, incredible! This app was actually decent before (4 stars) with a responsive dev team, unfortunately now it's 2 stars at the best... sad.
So far so good! !
I have not used any other app so I cannot make a comparison but it does what I need. Easy to filter/search, has all of the shows I like, good display. What more do you want from a podcast app?
I loved this app. It's heartbreaking how much the quality has deteriorated. Want to sync subscriptions? Prepare to be logged out before it completes. Done listening to an episode and ready for the next? Good luck getting out of the player view without force-quitting the app. Even after paying for premium support my bug reports go unanswered and the issues continue to pile up. It's a real shame; this was once a really great app.
I like the player but I have trouble with the resume feature
I’ve used app for a few years and always been happy with it. After the latest update, I noticed ads on the bottom of my screen. Ok, I can put up with that, for a free app. But then, Norton kept giving me alerts about blocking unsafe sites. What unsafe site? I’m not trying to go to that site! Finally figured out it happens when I have this app open. So I’m uninstalling it today. Very disappointed.
