    Slick, but why can't I change the volume? Other audio apps allow volume control. Glad I didn't spend the $2 on this.

    Latest update lost all my settings as well as downloads. Meanwhile I used up my monthly data plan in a single day because it disabled the Use only Wi-Fi setting. Updates should not reset the app!!!

    Has tons of settings, and never loses its place.

    Can't download over cellular even after enabled in setting

    Works. It forgot my podcast subscriptions once, but easy to reinstall from OneDrive. Wish I could speed up play like on the iPhone (1.5x is best) - all I miss.

    Ii listen to 6-10 hours of podcasts every day, and I've used every podcast app available. I can say without a doubt that this is the best one out there. Very flexible and feature rich. Try it, you won't be sorry.

    everything's nice, except having to be plugged in to download files over 100mb. Would've given 5 stars if not for that.
  • by Dave 11/12/2014
    I really like this app very much! I have two feature requests: 1. Add option to keep screen on. 2. Add BBC Radio 1 episodes, like Annie Mac's weekly Friday show.
  • by Ted 11/11/2014
    Not perfect but still better than the official Podcast 8.1 app or any of the third party competitors.
  • by James 11/11/2014
    Taking off a star since while the app is stable, it frequently has problems resuming podcasts. I have switch to the next podcast and back to resume the episode I'm on.
