  • Unable to search for and play specific episodes

    By Timbo907
    The inability to search for and play specific episodes is extremely frustrating.
  • Almost good, needs fix

    By Dom Dom :P
    One thing keeping this from being the best app for podcasts is the fact that all the episodes are automatically marked as played and the whole played versus unplayed marking is super glitchy. As someone who likes tracking which episodes I’ve listened to, this app is not up to the standards of Spotify. If they get around to fixing these bugs I would reconsider but for now there are glaring problems.
  • Used to be good

    By absolutbill
    But now it crashes each time you connect to a Bluetooth device and sometimes when you plug a phone in to a car.
  • Worth the $

    By BVD45
    I find this app easy to use and it has helped me explore the world of podcasts. The search function works well. I just set up a sync account to move my subscriptions over to a new phone and it worked seamlessly. There are lots of playback options and you can set up skip intervals of your own.
  • Crashes

    By TheReluctantReviewer625
    What's going on with this app? No updates for three months? I switched to icatcher podcast player and am not looking back to Pocket Casts. The functionality is much better and I can Sync to icloud at no additional cost. The app is also not subscription based and has frequent updates. The developer is very quick to respond.
  • Nonstop crashes.

    By Davidchildersp
    Anytime you switch Audio output the app crashes. Turning on Bluetooth, the app crashes.
  • Broken Sync

    By aZpr19
    Will definitely a 5 star as soon as the broken Sync is fixed. at this moments the different podcast progresses does not sync across devices.
  • Reigning champ

    By jdawslloyd
    All time greatest, like when Mac met Cheese.
  • Pretty to look at, super functional, and it has auto play ❤️

    By Jessiegirl21+++
    I listen to the Sleep With Me Podcast to help me sleep. I need it to auto play. And I got tired of messing with the Apple Podcast app. None of the the free to download podcast apps were as intuitive as I thought they should be. So I tried this one. it Is exactly what a Podcast app should be. Easy to use, easy to search and find the shows and episodes I want. It displays the half listened to episodes on a separate page. And shows you want us in the upnext que So I don’t have to guess. Pretty to look at, functional, and it has auto play. Another reviewer said this feels like what the Apple Podcast app should be and I completely agree. The only thing that could have made this better would have been a free trial period. Even with out that I’m sold. It’s a great app. I will be recommending it to all my friends. Totally worth more than what they are charging.
  • Is nobody else crashing??

    By Sullivpl23
    This is hands down my favorite podcast platform, and it’s been crashing intermittently for a while now but lately it’s gotten worse and worse until this morning, during the half hour I was walking the dog, it crashed every 5 minutes, at least. Anybody else having this issue - developers?? Any fixes you can suggest or send out? I only love this when it works...
