    This is the only worthwhile podcast app in the store. I've tried many and not only does this app work very well, it offers some great playlist and backup features. Excellent interface and support. It is clear the developers take pride in this app. Worth every penny. I wish it were a universal app, but this version will do nicely.

    Runs nicely, stable, etc.. But the UI is very basic (and not even intuitive). Lets just say pivot control without knowing what are the side pivots are in general a bad design. Consider using pivots like in OneDrive or Facebook? Also UI too stretched in 1080p screens. Finally, get rid of the weird menu you get when doing a long press. They're are better menus...

    Love it. No hiccups, no goofy controls.

    No longer the best podcast app on Windows Phone. Pros: Intuitive and clean user interface. Robust Settings and Features. Excellent Live Tiles. Finds more podcasts than many other apps. Cons: Auto downloads mostly require external power. The app doesn't run as quickly or smoothly as it could. Skip didn't work.

    Most stable podcast app out there. Two issues; user interface should be simpler and the biggest; no 1.5x 2x speed playback. For this reason alone I use another app. Please add this!

    Great replacement for the lackluster built-in Podcasts app. Worth every penny.

    It's greatest in wp store,I think. But some podcast can't be played, the publisher said it's about the license, https or something. Could u take a look?

    Taken me the better part of a day to download a handful of podcasts. Seems I need to start a download and stay on the screen or the download will stop, same if my screen goes to sleep. Also, after downloading and exiting, going back into the app some of the episodes I just downloaded are no longer available for offline listening...now I need to download them again! Default windows podcast app also has issues downloading podcasts, but this app I worse. Gave it two stars instead of one for the available selection of podcasts.

    Best podcast app on WP so far, certainly the most reliable. Two suggestions for features seen in castcenter (which had a great interface but is not reliable): Variable playback speed, and drag-and-drop reordering of podcasts within lists. With these two additions, podcast lounge will be near perfect for me.

    I'm a big fan but having lots of issues with playback; half the time the podcast won't play. Would be 5 stars if it was consistent!
