    Love the app....does everything perfect....I just want one thing and it's 1.5 times speed. App is amazing and it would be 6 stars with 1.5 times playback

    Great app. I've been using it for a while. Only complaint, and it's minor, is I wish it could grab all the iTunes data like my iPad does.

    It's a good app. Has the podcasts I want. Cheap price. Wish I had more fluid controls but I'm an android brat so I'm used to another style. Excellent app.

    I'd be willing to pay for this app if there was a way to change to the light theme, or if it just stuck with the theme that my phone was using. That and the fact that it's still using the original win 8 design language instead of the more nuanced 8.1 modern UI makes this a no go.

    Works most times, though occasionally looses podcasts. Playlist generator will not arrange podcasts by date, only gives podcasts in alphabetical order. Still best podcast app I have found so far. With the Win 10 Preview will not keep episodes marked as played, keeps resetting to all episodes as new after exiting and re-entering app.

    Excellent app, excellent support. Emailed the dev with a problem and got a reply within a day and was able to fix the problem with their help. App works great. Thumbs up for Igneous Software! 👍

    Pretty great. Needs variable playback speeds for 5 stars.

    It frequently loses your downloads, and often loses your playlist if you leave it idle for too long Can't backup or access downloaded podcasts
  • by Brent 2/14/2015
    This is easily the best podcast app I have ever used. Adding a URL and playing continuous were a little hard to find, but all the features are there. Worth the money.

    Fantastic app that gets frequent updates. I use it everyday and love it!
