    This is really a fantastic app! I use it every day and am loving it. Nicely done.

    Best podcast app on WP and an excellent successor to the native podcast app, which Microsoft seems to be neglecting.

    I've had probably ever Podcast app. in the store and this one is definitely the best. Even if you only keep the free version, it's way better then any of the others, but for a couple bucks to make it even sweeter is well worth it. I love listening to my Podcasts and it's so much nicer with a great Podcast app. like this one.

    Doesn't correctly background download, is very slow to start, doesn't auto delete played episodes. Basically doesn't work, developer doesn't respond at all to support requests.

    Absolutely great podcast app. I've tried most of the ones in the Store and this is the only one that I've been able to setup and just know that my podcasts will be downloaded and ready when I want them.
  • by Alec 6/4/2015
    Amazing! It has all of the podcasts I want. It is also fairly cheap! Fairly.

    Best podcast app I've found. I especially like how it lets me decide when and what to download or stream, instead of confusing everything by poorly implemented automation as some other apps do. My only complaint is that I would like to sort downloaded episodes oldest first, but available episodes newest first, and can't figure out how. For long running podcasts with hundreds of episodes, oldest first means a ton of scrolling. Not a huge deal, but it is a little annoying. Still my favorite podcast app, though.

    This app is the cream of the crop. Probably my personal favorite on the platform

    I've used several podcast apps and this is the best. Easy to use. Keeps track of all my subscriptions. No problems.
