    GREAT! Needs a Windows 8 version.
  • by Gareth 10/9/2014
    Very attractive app. Search works well and fast. I don't use playlists, and didn't use that feature. I stopped using it because downloading and playback became unreliable. Often hitting "play" either in the app or through the system pop-down volume menu wouldn't resume playback on a paused podcast. Have temporarily switched to iPodcast to try that out, not nearly as pretty but seems functional.

    Best podcast app in the store. I'd love to see a synced app for Windows 8.
  • by The WinPhan 10/8/2014
    Just downloaded to my HTC One (M8) for Windows, it's now on every Windows Phone I own and syncs seamlessly between them all. Without a doubt, this is the most comprehensive yet easy to use podcast app in the WP Store! Feature rich is an understatement! Thank you for this beauty and keep up the great work! :D

    Hands down the best Podcasts app for WP

    Last update was really buggy, but the team responded with a patched version almost immediately.
  • by Jason 10/6/2014
    Super responsive support. The most recent update caused a rare crash; the app asked my permission to send crash details. Within 24 hours I received an acknowledgement *and* a fix. I replied to that email with a note about another bug (new behavior); that got an answer and a fix within another 24 hours. I love the app, and the developer is serious about keeping it humming. Worth the money, and then some.

    Best podcast app that I have used on any platform. I wish these guys had wrote the audible app!
  • by Chan 10/6/2014
    Works great for downloaded, offline podcasts. Subscriptions, favorites, and playlists. Much better than the built in app!
  • by Stefan 10/5/2014
    I had tried several of the free podcast apps after the built-in support kept changing (and causing problems). None of them met my needs and I kept finding myself going back to the stock, hoping it would improve. Finally, out of frustration, I tried one more time, this time with Podcast Lounge. I LOVE THIS APP. It does everything I was expecting, and more. By far the BEST podcast app for Windows phone.
