    Best podcast app on WP.

    The developers really took their time to polish their product! I finally got fed up with the unfriendly stock podcast application and ended up taking a chance and buying this app without trying it and it was money well spent! Anyone who wants a responsive, clean, customizable podcast app I highly recommend purchasing this. My only concern, however, is that whenever I download an episode for offline play it will not work, and the same applies to streaming episodes. If they address this issue I will rate it max stars. Still a great app nonetheless when it does work.

    That second best (I prefer Podcast Picker) of a bad lot. It has all the features you want but in my 521 is slow. The only other acceptable podcast app on windows phone was podcast Picker, it's simple and faster has a sleep timer and playlists that work.

    Best podcast app for windows phone. But unfortunately it doesn't have the possibility to change playback speed so I can't give full 5 stars.
  • by Dan 4/3/2015
    Good effort by developer, and great app when it works. But I routinely miss auto downloads for no apparent reason
  • by Weston 3/21/2015
    Exceptional control, minimal clutter. Best podcast app I've found so far on Windows Phone.
  • by Steven 3/20/2015
    The best podcast app.
  • by Jerry 3/19/2015
    One of the best podcast players, but lacking a few features that others have. For example, it does not have variable playback speed or custom ordering of playlist podcasts.

    Incredible podcast library management. Highly recommended
  • by Martijn 3/14/2015
    Best €2 I spent on the Marketplace. This app takes everything away that's wrong with the Windows OS support for Podcast playback. No more reloading my casts 10 to 12 times a day, just because I accidentally hit my search button, etc. Gone are the days where I majorly exceed my data limit on my contract. It works, and it's awesome. Thanks devs!
