  • “View Episodes” rendering issue

    I’ve used this app for many years and I use it every day. It’s excellent. The only recurring problem is that when viewing podcast information via Add Podcast Search or Top Podcasts, the “View Episodes” button fails to render.
  • Slowwwwww

    Since the last OS update, it is so slow as to be nearly useless. As in, about 10 seconds go by before the screen responds to you in any way. All other apps on my phone work fine; something’s up with this one and the latest OS. Hopefully a fix coming soon?

    ...for managing podcasts. Works flawlessly for me. A great value. If you are manually downloading any podcasts on a regular basis, stop wasting your time and automate the process with this app. Also perfect for listening to audio books from the podcast section of iTunes if you set them up as a playlist. I wish they would add the ability to listen through the iPhone earpiece, maybe using the proximity sensor for play/pause. This would allow me to listen privately without ear buds while waiting in line at the store or during other short amounts of "found" time when I am without my earbuds. Thanks!

    I’ve used this app for a long time. Was the best podcast app I had found. Recently it crashes multiple times in a single podcast. I hope they can fix this. I’d like to keep using this app.
  • Best podcast aggregator !!!

    This is the best and I’ve purchased all the rest. Downloads audio and/or video in the background without fail...so much better than Apples Podcast app. I love it!!! Keep the updates coming.

    UPDATE 2: So far it has the best interface on the Apple Watch for a non-fitness app. If I'm in the mood to listen to more than one podcast, I'll wear my Apple Watch to control Downcast. It's that good! UPDATED: This might be the best podcast app that still supports chapter markers on enhanced podcasts. The alleged "top" app stopped supporting chapter markets!! The best feature is the cloud syncing across devices. My iPhone and iPad are in sync with this feature. I also like the variable speed features. Some podcasts were too fast at 2x, but having a 1 1/2x speed makes them listenable and go faster. This is great! And if you ask questions, you get a good answer and quickly. If I could, I would give it a sixth star!!
  • One of the best podcast

    I like this app because it supports Chromecast so it’s easy to use with the TV and also great to use it in the car. Thank you.I don’t have any issues with this app it does what it supposed to be doing. Adding podcast is very easy. Also the settings are very easy to understand.
  • EDITED: No more crashes!

    Update: I found out that the problem was a single podcast which caused the app to crash. Ive unsubscribed from that podcast (Radiolab), and now everything is working perfectly again. I’d like to listen to Radiolab again at some point, but At least I’m not having problems any more! I’ve been happily using Downcast for years with very few problems. I love how customizable it is. A few days ago, it started crashing frequently. I can now only get anywhere between 30 seconds and 3 minutes before the app crashes, making it largely unusable.
