  • No longer functional

    By Schef
    Doesn’t work over Bluetooth following latest update. Would be a five star rating if functionality restored.
  • Best podcast app

    By Music Freak_11
    I have tried many podcast apps and I find myself coming back to downcast. I love the fact you can swipe the screen and jump forward/backward in increments you can set in the preferences. That is huge when driving and can you easily swipe instead of trying to push a button on your smart phone. Another feature I like is you can set the app to force landscape mode when viewing video podcasts regardless if the phone is locked to not tilt. My only gripe is the podcasts don’t download automatically when on WiFi. I don’t know if there is a setting I’m missing. I also wish they would allow you to list the podcasts in a tile form to make it more modern looking.
  • Great long standing podcasting app

    By Capt crackhead
    This app has been the longest running one on my devices - it has been supported and the developers are always improving and updating the app. Super fast and relatable! Love it
  • Great, no buts

    By SithLrd
    Now that this is updated to the new screen not he iPad Pro, this is the best podcast app I’ve found. I have a list of audible-only and video podcasts that I get on my iPad and just want the audible casts on my iPhone. It handles that flawlessly.
  • Solid product used for over a decade

    By TXgweilo
    Highly customizable and bug free. Have tried a few times to revert to Apple product but have always reverted to Downcast
  • Nearly perfect

    By Talos42
    I dropped a star because my iPhone SE has a power issue when running this app. Battery begins to run hot (which saps the charge percentage) at random, possibly in relation to refreshing the podcast feed. Still trying to narrow down a cause. Killing the Downcast app resolves the heat. Beyond that, a great podcast app. I love the ability to organize podcast priority for play order in my custom lists. Not having to tend to the app every time an episode ends is great when driving or dealing with daily tasks.
  • Stuck in Crash Loop

    By Ashkan M
    Crash crash crash. No matter what I do. Not sure what to do now and I don't want to delete the app and lose all the downloaded files in there.
  • Latest version is Crashy

    By Jochen in Sydney
    I love Downcast, and have been using it for years. On iOS 12 it’s been annoyingly crashy. I hope it’ll improve soon, and I’ll change my rating back to 5 star. This includes version 2.9.37 which still crashes for me.
  • When is 3.0 coming?

    By MonsterRayn
    Love the app, but it needs that make redesign.
