Too much buffering
No option to remove ads 1/5
Love this app! Addendum... 4/5
Well dang, just installed the update 1-22-18 and the app now freezes on my iPhone 6. Can’t see how to contact Support on your page.
Only because this app is simple to use, I’ve discovered the wonder of podcasts. I’d give it 5 stars if I could pay a fee to avoid the ads. Honestly I use and enjoy this app everyday. Thanks Podcast!
Great info 5/5
You should have a Q&A with your subscribers questions. Thanks Manny Alfonso
Please make an ad-free paid version! 3/5
I have not found a way to contact you, nor any mention of paying for an ad-free upgrade.
Apple’s podcast app became a dumpster fire with iOS 11. Your app is really good most of the time. It’s clean, smooth, and generally efficient. There’s a big but here though! When the full screen ads pop up unexpectedly, the app gets really clunky. It’s always at the most inopportune times. It’s those times that I get really frustrated at your lack of foresight in not offering a paid, ad-free version. I get really close to deleting the app each time it happens. I really don’t want to have to do that.
Once a paid, ad free version is available, and you are more transparent in communication, you’ll probably get five stars.
Best app - except for the ads 2/5
I would pay $5 to remove ads per year!
Better than the default 4/5
Downloaded this one after Apple changed the interface of the built-in podcasts app. This one makes it easy to search, download, and add individual podcasts to your listening queue. Only tiny annoyance is the ads, which seem to make the whole app glitch now and again and need rebooting. Not enough of a turn off to make me switch. Like this interface a lot.
loving it so far 3/5
i just downloaded this less than 7 minutes & i have to say the simplicity is amazing. no need for an account, email or password, just a phone. lovely. that aside, it would be nicer & better that the podcasts still work well when using another app that users sound like instagram when increasing or decreasing the sound.
Needs add free version 3/5
Adds are annoying and no purchase option.
No auto download 1/5
I agree that Apple completely screwed up their podcast app. So I went looking for another. Good app, BUT: There doesn’t seem to be a way to automatically refresh your podcast feed, which is just crazy. I have some 50 podcasts in my stream and they literally expect me to download each individual one. This is a massive oversight and I and jumping ship. If there is a way to do it there’s no support or contact details on their website.
This app is the best 5/5
It is 100% free and it has all the things I like so that is great. I'm actually listening to "wait wait don't tell me" now.
Needless to say this app has everything , stuff you should know, This American life, oh no Ross and carry, Dan Cortez.
Happy with this Podcast Appy! 4/5
After the iTunes podcast app crashed and burned (and I figured out it wasn’t me or that my phone stopped working), I found THIS app and was soooo excited that I could play my fave podcasts again! I drive long distances and just love listening to podcasts! What I cannot figure out is how to set it to play continuously, one podcast after another. It’s not safe to pick up my phone and choose a new podcast to play while I’m driving. I’d like to be able to line up 3 or 4 to play back to back. Is there a way to set it up for this?
Good app overall 5/5
Overall I like the app, much more intuitive than IOS 11 new podcast app. My only criticism is the pop up ads (which aren’t that bad) that have a relatively small close out box (whatever the x is called). Maybe I have fat fingers now but I’d like to see that close out box a little bigger.
All things considered it’s an excellent app and warrants 5 stars
Ok podcast app. Has additional ads. 3/5
5 stars if you could turn off ads 3/5
Like others said, great functionality to replace the broken Apple Podcast app but it needs to have a “pro” version without ads
Waiting... waiting..... waiting 1/5
Takes to long to buffer or download and sometime it will not play at all.
Good app 4/5
The only thing that I miss from the default one is the part where it shows all the recent podcasts out. This app only shows the green dots on the shows themselves. Other than that it does the job.
Podcast won’t download 2/5
This app would be great if episodes I’ve picked out downloaded.
It just works. 5/5
TOP QUALITY!!! 5/5
By Throbbin Rock
Like the caps?😁 well let me tell ya this app got me into podcasts and now I’m hooked like a meth addict so thanks for crushing my life and brightening my soul👍
So much better than apple’s 5/5
By Jenna AZ
This is WAY better than the apple version. I can’t believe I waited this long to try this.
Get rid of advertisements? Give recommendations? 4/5
Great except for no helpful recommendations based on my subscriptions and no way of gettin rid of the interruptive advertisements (I’d be willing to pay a little amount to get ad-free use of the app)
Paul White 5/5
This Pastor is very thorough. He goes through the Bible verse by verse. He does not rush. He is very interesting and really sheds light on scripture. He is well versed in the original text. I highly recommend his pod cast.
Just what I needed 5/5
By struggling mon
She is amazing. Has helped me so much as a woman and a mom. I really struggled with IVF and the side effects of progesterone, horribly sick pregnancy, really bad post partum and a child with a rare allergy. It’s been a really really hard 3 yrs. I was clawing my way through life. I seriously felt I was drowning And she has helped me start walking through it. I finally have been given a little hope. With her and help in other ways (proffesional and medication) I think I can make it.
Great App! 5/5
I have tried several podcast apps in the past but this one is the best! I finally feel like I can listen to my favorites and create a list for later so easily!
New app for me, suggestion for improvement 3/5
This app needs a timer, sleep timer & volume control.
MUCH better than Apple’s Podcast App!!! 5/5
Apple’s podcast app frequently freezes, shuts down, and can’t seem to handle any use. It really is a worthless joke.
This app though works perfectly fine and has all the podcasts that the Apple version has. It works much better and downloads faster. I recommend this app to anyone who is frustrated and disenfranchised by the Podcast app by Apple.
Too much advertisement 3/5
Please cut down on the advertisement section.
Awful search engine 2/5
Let’s us get rid of ads... 3/5
I would gladly pay money to get rid of ads permanently (not a subscription)
By Tomi Arts
This app is a great way to listen to great ideas when and where you want to. Sounds funny perhaps, but this has given me new freedom in my life for new discoveries.
Great humor and a great insight ! 5/5
By Real !
I never listened to a podcast on my iPad and iPhone that I look forward to. The information is given to you as a listener feel like these guys are your intellectual friends that you do like listening too. Plus as a female it's a set of great voices to listen, extra treat is hearing their extreme clarity. Why don't you guys come to Raleigh, NC or Charlotte. We are all not rednecks or where white when it's not in "season". Thanks guys for your input and humor in a crazy, utterly awful game being played out.
Queue? Remove ads? 2/5
I'd pay a few dollars for this app to not have ads. Also is there no automatic queue of new episodes from favorites?
Works Great 4/5
Much better than the stock podcast app. Wish there was an ad free paid version.
Since Apple totally screwed up the podcast app 4/5
And it freezes all the time, I found this one and really like a lot of the features, although I just started using it. It was easy to use, and the search for specific thing or person within the episodes as well as over the whole podcast.
The one thing I really can’t stand are the ads. Would rather pay for an app than have ads that I don’t want popping up all the time when I am trying to search for something. Could not see where there is an upgrade to the app without ads.
Good podcasts 5/5
By Eight of Nine
This app has great podcasts and you can listen when not in the app. There is a wide selection and navigating the app is intuitive.
not too bad simple interface intrusive ads 3/5
this is an OK app. A little bit to stripped down. The ads are very intrusive and often require you to click the link in order to close. due to these ads I will be uninstalling this one.
Great app. Would like it if they made it easier to navigate 5/5
Feedback for developers:
Would you please add a feature in the interface where you can navigate podcast episodes by the time blocks (I.e 1/2017-2/2017)and not just by the simple date added. You can even use a different method of sorting it(not just time blocks). Just add additional features that will expand the way users can interact with the content.
Far more user friendly than iTunes Podcasts 5/5
I’m an avid Apple Music and iPhone user but I love this app far more than the iTunes Podcast means. They confuse me and make it difficult to find and compile the podcasts I’m looking for. I like the Interface of the Podcast App much more.
Double speed 3/5
By Steve... Can
Love having an alternative podcast app but needs 1.5x and 2x speeds
Brings in public podcasts one at a time 3/5
This app has been helpful to listen to NPR podcasts such as Planet Money. However, I wish I saw a way to crate a playlist.
Where has this app been all my life?! 5/5
This by far is the best source for podcasts. It covers a vast array of subject matter and entertainment for all preferences and tastes. In addition it’s easy for this old vet to use. Thank you!
A fantabulous app! Yuge!!
Worst like Apple’s 1/5
Infinite loading. Worthless.
Sleep timer please 4/5
By Hearher K
Great app. Need to add iwatch 5/5
Have tried many podcast apps. This one is my favorite. I wish they’d make it for iWatch.
By Matt da bause
Great app for podcasts👌 not a bot or paid reviewer
Works fine if you want to stream podcasts using your data. The app allows you to download episodes over WiFi, but once they are downloaded the app doesn’t allow you to play them. It says “playing” but nothing plays and it stays at 0:00. Only non-downloaded episodes work. Garbage.
Great podcast app. Clean interface, good quality audio, and new episodes are uploaded within reasonable time. The issue that killed this app for me is the annoying random restarts. I would be listening to a podcast and for some reason the episode would restart from the beginning. This forces me to go to the app and find the spot in the episode. Please fix
The. Best. Podcast. App. 5/5
By Walker Kenion
I absolutely love The Podcast App. It’s so clean and organized and easy to use. I love it on iOS and Android and is my go-to podcast app. Much love to the developers!
