    This is the best podcast app by far. I've tried many, and I'm so glad I found it. No, it's not without issues, but the only one I've found is minor. Thanks to the developers!

    Best podcast app for WP8. Lots of options, stream, download ser episode details and art.

    Great app! Been using it for about a year and this is one of the best podcast app. Suggestion: Make the tile transparent when using a background picture in wp8.1. And ability to download certain podcasts automatically in Wi-Fi

    Loaded 10 different podcast apps and compared. Podcast Lounge is far more robust and user friendly than any of the competition including the basic app that now comes with WP8.1. Love the regular upgrades/ bug fixes. Includes nice tutorial. Well worth the $2 paid version to support the Devs. Deserves a 10* compared to competition.

    Great app. Huge selection (more than other apps I tried) and easy to use. Reliably resumes/remembers your last position. Lots of support too! Smart playlists are spectacular.

    Now that pods continue where they were paused without problems, easily a 5 star app.

    Best podcast app, just added sleep timer under tools. Download in the background so ready to listen when you are ( or just stream without downloading). Jump to any part of podcast, also remembers where last left off, great app with great support
