  • by Josh 9/17/2014
    Yes, yes, and yes! I was irritated with the new official podcast app for windows phone, but podcast lounge delivers an amazing experience with a TON of customization settings. This is exactly what I needed!
  • by Jeremiah 9/17/2014
    This app is way better than the standard podcast app. It makes me wish I could delete the stock version. Five stars, for sure.

    Best Podcast app on Win Phone period!
  • by Victor 9/16/2014
    Was the best, now the devs are lazy and bugs are not being fix...

    Absolutely the best podcast app for windows phones. It's super intuitive and easy to use.
  • by Ray 9/13/2014
    Doesn't have the ability to adjust playback speed (1.25x, 1.5x, 2x) like default player has, still a very good app.
  • by Jephté Josias 9/8/2014
    Doesn't works after the last windows update.
  • by Jake 9/4/2014
    This is my every day go to app for podcasts. It's stable and feature-rich. Well worth the cost.

    The auto download needs to be updated to work in Win 8.1 as all the rules from 8.0 are not needed. Developer has been asked to fix this. See iPodcast for a simple app that does work.
