  • Best Podcast App!

    By Prpolo
    Love the app. All you need is support for Siri Shortcuts and the app would be perfect. Great job all around!
  • Best podcast app on IOS

    By Starbuck011
    This is by far top two best podcast apps in the App Store! It blows away Apple's own app. The “vocal boost” along with the “skip silence” is awesome. My only problem with the app is it does not currently offer password support for podcast like Apple Podcasts and Overcast, if they added that this would easily be a 5 star app. I would like to see the ability to download podcasts to Apple Watch so I don’t have to take my phone with me when I workout.
  • Keep deleting my queue

    By FlyingGS
    My queue is dear to me, it takes me a lot of time to fill it and curate it and every so often my queue is simply wiped out. Previously reported, still happening, don’t seem to care?
  • BEWARE! No support for paid podcasts!!!!!!

    By malekohi
    This may not affect many people, but I couldn’t believe it. I loved the look and features of this app and paid for it, but was unaware of this lack of what I would consider basic functionality for a paid app.
  • Syncing with web broken

    By BaltimoreSeattle
    Please fix and I’ll amend review
  • Account Sync Cost

    By coatofchrome
    I love the app, however....it will not let me log in. When I reset my password, it forces me pay $9 for a web account, which I do not want. I cannot sync my ipad and iphone anymore. Absolutely no way to contact tech support. Crazy.....
  • Amazing Organization Features

    By AlexanderCrescent
    The strength of this app is organization.
  • Pretty Great but ...

    By jkb3223
    I listen to a gross amount of podcasts. This app is far superior to the iOS option and any other free options I have tried. My one improvement request is to make the app work with password protected feeds. I subscribe to some casts where adfree feeds are hidden behind a password protected URL and pocket cast is the only app that those don’t want to work with. PLEASE FIX THIS!!! Thanks <3
  • It’s a life saver
