    And still working perfectly!
  • Big fan - request better playlist tools

    I’m a big fan and user of this app. I’d love it even more if it had silent gap skipping and an ability to select amongst searched episodes and save specific episodes from the search list to a playlist. I’m baffled sometimes at trying to manipulate the podcast display order but that’s just me. But any time I have tried to use another player I keep on coming back.
  • Missing 1.75x speed, but otherwise excellent

    I have waited approximately six years for incorporation of 1.75 times normal plane speed. I have contacted the developer at least two times about it. The first time that I did, I was told that the next version would have increments of 0.1 for the play speed. I said that was too much, but said that 1.75 was drastically needed. Still, nothing has been done. Otherwise, I have loved the application and have used it since 2012. I especially like that you can have it the access password restricted podcasts. I subscribe to two podcasts which require a paid subscription. Those cannot be accessed for people that do not have a membership. Therefore, access scene password restricted podcasts is really a wonderful capability.

    I feel like this app has gotten buggier over time. It crashes or gets stuck frequently, and at least once a day (I use this app all the time) I have to quit and restart. It seems like it's getting worse over time. iPhone X, latesr software.

    I’ve been using this player for several years. Good controls, interface, etc. I’ve tried other players, I always come back to Downcast as my favorite.

    I like this app a Lot. I was wondering if you can split audio and video podcasts rather than in one jumble

    I’ve been using it for several years. Does exactly what I want it to. Syncs seamlessly across 4 devices.
  • Best podcast app

    Significantly better than any other podcast app I’ve tried. I use it daily. Love that I can either stream or opt to download to listen offline. Skipping increments are the right length and make it easy to skip ads.

    This app does not allow the iPhone alarm clock to work. If falling asleep listening to downcast the alarm clock does not sound.

    I love the swipe gestures for skipping forward or backwards.
