  • Seriously why do I need a title, apple??

    By xooxu
    The amount of fine-tuned control you have is ridiculous, and even the default settings are 100 times more intuitive and user friendly than on apple’s podcast.
  • Apple Watch feature request

    By dtay891
    I love the chapters functionality of this app and wish it would display the list of chapters in the watch app. I have noticed you can force touch on the watch to get next chapter, just would love to swipe to a watch screen that shows list of chapters I can choose from.

  • Would be perfect I’d CarPlay worked

    By Cendrizzi
    Used to work until the ui update. Is this just not a priority?! Otherwise great app.
  • Sound Speed is Faulty

    By Fifitrixiebella
    Default 1x speed has a constant intermittent chipmunk effect. Reducing speed to the next lowest level has a constant intermittent drawn out slooooowwww effect. No in between. Had to go back to Apple’s app til I find something better. Above sound distortions are not happening on Apple’s app when I listen to the same podcasts.
  • Exactly what I didn't know I needed

    Just the right features. Great discovery. Worth ever cent. Still great.
  • So far so good...

    By PoorPinkus
    I really like this app so far. I just switched to Apple. Previously I was using Podcast Addict, which I really liked. I'll update this review as needed
  • Great app!

    By Phil McThomas
    The developer good advice and beyond to give us unique features - watch sync, smart resume, voice boost, speed-up
  • The Best So Far, Been Using For Years

    By Chico55
    I’ve been through a bunch of podcast apps and to me this one’s the best. Uncluttered and intuitive interface, easy and fast to use. One issue I wonder about, with some podcasts I’ll download and add to my playlist but they’ll disappear from the playlist. Also some podcasts won’t download. I’ve assumed that’s on the podcast creators end, their preferences, but is it an app problem? If it’s a creator issue I’ll up my review to 5. Thanks for the amazing app, it’s one of my all time most used!
  • Great podcast app
