    Very very good. Everyone is correct in saying this Is the best podcasting app on the platform. Light/Dark theme would be nice though. Or custom wallpapers perhaps.

    Works very well on HTC one m8. Like that I can download any podcast, not just what's in the Windows store. Far better than the stock podcast player.

    Although there's no landscape view from what I can tell, I still love this app. Nice UI, smooth navigation, easy to use, and enough features to keep most podcast listeners happy. Thanks for the great app, and if possible please sneak in landscape view. :)

    I use this app daily. No complaints.

    Simply the best Podcast catcher and player that I use on a daily basis! Definitely buy this app!

    The best. Finds your podcast, downloads it, and you can listen to it problem free. When there are problems, expect that update cause the developers are quite active! I would really like to switch to a light background with the app if that's possible, though.

    It took a lot for me to switch from the stock podcast app. I dreaded moving my subscriptions over and setting everything up again. But Podcast Lounge was worth it - it has all of the features I used before and more. And then after awhile of using it, I found a trivial bug and reported it. The dev replied saying it was fixed in the newest release - another great reason to check Podcast Lounge out!

    I think this is a great application. I use it daily. I had a couple minor issues, but the developers were prompt with suggestions and bug fixes. The developers are actively supporting this app.
