Worth paying for 5/5
Should have a paid version to get rid of ads. A solid podcast app. Compared to Apple's pitiful attempts, its superb.
Please add an ad-free option! 4/5
Just downloaded this app and it’s phenomenal, so much so that I wanted to invest my money and pay for an ad-free version but was disappointed to find there is no option for that. Please add it! Will you ever? 5 stars when you do.
Organized and offers suggestions 5/5
This app not only makes it easy to find your favorite podcasts, it helps you find new ones.
Great app, terrible adds 4/5
Why does a podcast app have audio ads that automatically play over the podcasts? It’s very annoying to press play and not be able to hear someone speaking because of the announcing sounds of a slot machine going off.
Other than that this app is great, I can download and play apps on the go, I don’t accidentally skip to the beginning halfway through a 3 hour podcast while trying to change the volume on Bluetooth (which was a big issue with the default app), and I get notifications when a new episode gets released, overall it’s the best app I’ve used, but I wish I could pay a few bucks to remove the ads.
I like this simple game but it could get old.
Welcome to Nightvale is the only reason I downloaded this app, initially. I’ve since found many more podcasts to enjoy! This app gives the needed freedoms and aspects one can enjoy without the restrictions you get with other less-than apps.
Please let us remove the ads 2/5
By Duane Cochran
I’ll gladly pay. Awesome app. The ads blow.
Too many ads. I’d pay to remove them 4/5
Ads are full screen
Let me pay you for ad free 4/5
Great app, clean and straight to the point...including the ads, they are there and regular.
I have money, can I give you money instead of the ad guys giving you money?
I have dollar, it could be YOUR dollar :D
It could even be your dollar on a regular period of time recurring if you add some sweet features like subscribing but excluding supplementary featurets like post episode commentary or discussions!
Great potential 4/5
It doesn't sync with other Apple devices? What? That's bad, very bad.
There is no ability to import my podcast subscriptions from my probably soon to be ex podcast app? Not good, but only painful for a while in the beginning.
I echo the call to let me give you money. You know why .... Or you should, others are telling you.
I love the whole discovery process. Great job on recommending best episodes.
App looks great! Very nice design!
Where is a help page, webpage, something? The whole post issues on the review page ... Doesn't work great.
Need different speeds for different podcasts. Also, 1.75 speed would be great.
NEED APPLE WATCH APP. Please!
Search function works great!
Now, you're really closer to three stars, but great potential ...
I switched to this app when Apple’s podcast app became hot garbage with iOS 11 upgrade. Now I need to find another because this one has become trash as well. And what’s with the full screen gotcha op up ads?!?
A better alternative 4/5
Wow! This is MILES ahead of Apple’s POS Podcast app.
Can I suggest adding a paid, no-ads option? I would gladly pay a few dollars for this app.
No way to contact 3/5
By Great to use for my kids
iOS podcast app is a mess. Is there a way to transfer over the list of podcasts I have into your app, so I don’t have to go find and remap all the shows.
Ads everywhere 3/5
Overall I like the app, much more intuitive than IOS 11 new podcast app. BUT the pop up ads are terrible and excessive.
Offer an ad-free version 3/5
The ads dominate this app. Please offer an option to remove them. Apples native podcast app doesn’t have ads.
By Nom Nom2
Sorry but i wont be using this app anymore since all the podcasts I listened to are now on Spotify. But to help anyone else that might still use this app they were Rt Podcast, Always Open, Off Topic, and Fan Service.
Good listening app 4/5
The Podcast App is intuitive and fast and works. Everything you need.
Doesn’t play anything 1/5
App looks nice... but doesn’t actually play anything. It just says “connecting...” indefinitely.
-Update: thanks to the developer for responding. After removing and reinstalling the app it’s working now. So I’m changing from ⭐️ to ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.
-Second Update: After a couple days it broke again in the same way, back to ⭐️. Any podcast just gets stuck at “connecting...” when I try to play it. Downloading for offline doesn’t work either. Those podcasts work just fine in other players. I’m using an iPhone 7 on 11.2.6.
Paid add free version 2/5
This would be a 5 Star app if there was a paid ad free version. It’s an amazing podcast app but the ads are so annoying. I would definitely be a buyer if there was an option!
Great app 5/5
Really enjoying this podcast app. It got me listening to podcasts and really enjoying them. Oprah Super soul Sunday is my favorite. Listen to it in the car on long drives. Just great and thanks for the recent updates to make it better.
Using it for 6 months now 3/5
Make it easier to see all episodes of a channel and search those episodes. It is difficult to search through a channels many episodes and categorize them. Thanks!
Ads are Annoying 2/5
By OTR Child
I like your app, but please consider getting rid of full page ads. They are causing problems with some of my podcasts as the podcast either pauses or stops all together when the ad pops up.
Was good while it lasted 1/5
By Syncing needs improvement
For a month or so this app saved my commute by doing what apple’s podcast app doesn’t: play podcasts. Now, after about a month and numerous updates, this app has gone the way of apple’s: it doesn’t play podcasts. It says they’re downloaded but when you press play, they don’t play. Instead you get an ‘error’ or it just says ‘loading’ indefinitely. And when you try to press anything on the screen to figure out what’s wrong or just try to restart, you’re bombarded with a string of ads.
Awesome App... But 3/5
By Big Hoss 7
So much easier to use than the Apple Podcasts app!
But... I just wish there was a way way to save episodes you really love into a cloud without having to keep them downloaded on your device.
And it would be nice to not have the ads popping up all of the time!
Overall though, it’s great for what you pay for it (free)!
Update: Just figured out that there really is no need to save the episodes you really like to a cloud because the episodes you download to listen to later automatically get deleted once they’re done and show up as greed out on the show’s list. This just works better for me rather than having to manage what’s downloaded or not like you do on the Apple app.
Raising from 3 to 4 stars only because the constant ads get in the way... but other than that... this is by far my favorite podcast app!
Well done. Nothing special. 3/5
The app is simple enough to use. It could be more streamlined and more user-friendly but the same time it’s not terribly hard to navigate. One of my complaints is no ability to play the podcast in fast forward. I really enjoy in android podcast addict the ability to play at 1.2 or 1.3 times normal speed.
Better organization 3/5
I’d like it so that you can have folders of your favorite shows & then just listen straight through. It would also be nice if I could change the sort to play the oldest first. And I’d like the date of the show to display on my car display.
Overall it’s a great app & I haven’t had any problems!
Doesn’t work very well unfortunately 1/5
If you like staring for hours at something that says “connecting” this is the app for you
Isn’t working like how it used to 2/5
Keeps shutting down a couple minutes into listening any podcast.
Great app 5/5
By Randall Patrick McMurphy
Easy to use, reminders are very helpful
Sell an ad free version 4/5
By Plat member
Like other users, I give this 4 instead of 5 stars because you don’t offer an ad free version. I use the app to learn French during my commute. I sometimes need to replay the last 10 seconds or click the next episode. But when ads pop up that is too dangerous. I’d be happy to pay for an ad free version.
It’s the boss! 5/5
Really enjoy this app—perfect company for chores and commuting. Especially like “Lovett or Leave It” for my liberal snark feasting and “2 Dope Queens” and “The Randown with Robin Thede” for fun and topical humor. Don’t mind the ads on “Lovett “—they’re usually pretty funny, too!
Like it a lot. 4/5
But... if you made an ad free version I would love it.
Good app but difficult to download episodes 5/5
This is a much better app that the awful and useless piece of software that is the one that comes by default. However, I miss having an easier option to download episodes. As it is, I have to add the episode to the “Listen Later” folder, start playing the episode and have it running until it finishes downloading (as opposed to being able to just add episodes to a downloading queue).
UPDATED: The update has actually improved the downloading feature, thanks for listening!
Paid version to remove ads please! 3/5
The app is great but the ads are too annoying.
Best podcast app 5/5
Simple, useful, quick. Exactly what I want out of a podcast app
Searchable podcasts!!!! 5/5
I love this app, and have since downloaded it and ditched the stupid apple podcast app. One of my favorite features is that you can search the podcasts in your favorite lists for specific content!
Takes too long to connect and frequently errors out 3/5
This app is decent and gives me access to all my favorite pidcasts, but it seems to happen to me all too often that it takes minutes at a time to load a podcast or fails to do so altogether. If loading were more consistent I’d be prepared to give this 5 stars.
Speed control 1/5
Where is the speed control? I cannot listen at 1.0x speed
Awesome info 5/5
This is a great podcast for any runner! I have learned so very much.
Nice app 5/5
I only wish it had an optional shuffle, thank you for a great app otherwise.
Enjoying this app 5/5
Great love it
Make ad-free/paid version. Runs hot? 3/5
By Peter Garcia
Best podcast app in my opinion and I’ve tried about 10 of them. Just please make a premium/ad-free version. The ads are super annoying and intrusive on the experience and listening of podcasts. Also, is it just me or does this app make phone extra hot? Can’t tell yet. Hope you’re listening developer. Thanks.
Apple App Replacement. 5/5
Guys. Can we all agree that the Apple made podcast app is just the worst podcast app to ever be created. I honestly did not realize how bad until I downloaded this app and discovered just how simple a podcast app should be. Thank you ! ❤️
Way Better than the Ape App 4/5
This app is much easier to easier to use than the default one that comes with iPhones. I haven’t had any issues finding the podcasts I want to listen to and it crashes far less often. The only thing I would ask for is an add-free version and for the ability to organize your podcast list in different ways. Once you get to a list of ten or more it can be hard to find the podcast you’re looking for. I wish that the podcasts that had recently updated would automatically move to the top of the list.
Jumping through different podcast is not intuitive and makes it difficult while driving
Better than the default 4/5
You can search for episodes with the app! Ads are annoying but worth the better interface.
By browneyed barbaraann
This story is so intriguing! When you first heard this tragedy unfolding on the news it was all in bits and pieces: it’s nice to have everything- the facts, the “coincidences”, the the backstory, all together and presented in story like fashion. It’s good to know that there are still people out there looking for those poor boys. What a tragedy. I wish the dad would just come forth tell the truth.
Add custom URL 1/5
I want to listen to my podcasts, but have to be able able to add an RSS feed podcast or it is useless for me. I sure wish I could use your app.
The podcast I want to add is paid and can not be added to the public lists of podcasts, so the developer response doesn’t help me any.
I don’t know if this is even a feature on this app but if it is I can’t find it. Should allow you to sync with your iCloud or iTunes account and pull in all of the podcasts that your subscribed to on the stock app.
Full page ads WHILE DRIVING?! 2/5
Great app, but having full page ads pop up while I’m driving is incredibly dangerous. Please make an option to pay for an add-free version.
