    Really an excellent podcast app. It's my default for the regular batch of audio shows I listen to. A WiFi-only background download would top it off nicely. Otherwise a functional UI makes it easy to manage the queue.

    Switched to Windows Phone from Android. I researched podcast apps, and found this is considered one of the best. It imported my OPML file from Skydrive, although the file has to be named bringcast_subscription_export.opml or it can't find it. The app seems to work well enough. The developer is responsive. I asked why there was no variable speed, and they quickly responded it was an operating system limitation which hopefully will be fixed in 8.1. I've been listening to podcasts at 2.0 for so long I can't stand to listen to them speak at normal speed. Just don't sound right. Bringcast is a good app, and I look forward to further enhancements. 10/19/14- I'm changing my review to 1 star. This app is behind where the iPod/iTunes were in 2005. Still does not have variable playback speed. Cannot sort podcasts. For almost 10 years, I've been listening to my podcasts in order from oldest to newest. That feature is not available in BringCast. It also groups podcasts together, rather than in order by date.

    Really nice alternative to the built in podcasts app in WP8.1.

    Not sure why it doesn't have more reviews. But I've tried alot of podcast apps and this one is the one I use. Lots of nice features for control.

    This is the best podcast player in the (any) app store. It has features not in any other podcast player. I love it & recommend it.

    Doesn't work...horrid UX.

    The BEST podcast app for the Windows phone. A little work to set up some feeds if you have obscure podcasts, but worth it. A pleasure to use and manage your podcasts.

    Creative controls, but podcast search functionality is greatly lacking.

    Best podcast app I have tried. I really like the playlist feel.
