Works, simple, has skip

While using Bluetooth, audio stops when Waze has a turn/alert notification, it stops the pod player, and you have to pause & play to resume podcast playing.
Also the forward /back button on Bluetooth controller doesn’t do anything to pods app, it should skip forward/back when pressed.

Interface is clean and simple, I like that I can discover more podcasts out there.

Developer Response ,

Thanks! For your feedback, I tried to reproduce the forward/back button bug, but with my bluetooth it works. It's probably some crappy code i wrote that i haven't found yet, will continue looking for it. :)

Ok app... when it works

I really liked this app when I discovered it. It has some nice features and looks like it has potential to be my go-to podcast app.

The most recent updates have been frustrating, purging all my chosen podcasts and making me begin as though I never used the app. That was annoying, but something I was willing to accept since I never paid for the “pro” upgrade.

The MOST ANNOYING thing that the most recent upgrade has done is make the playing of podcasts unstable. Podcasts will simply and randomly STOP PLAYING in the middle of a program. This function is (duh) the prime purpose of the app, and it’s now somewhat broken. If you restart the app, you can continue listening to the cast where the app paused, but why should that be? While listening to a 30 minute podcast, this pause in the program can sometimes happen 4-5 times.

Rather than leave a review to complain about this, I originally thought I’d leave the developer feedback from either app. There IS a link within the app to do that, BUT IT IS A FUNCTION THAT ONLY WORKS FOR PRO USERS!!! (How crazy is that??)

I really want to continue liking this app, but if this pausing doesn’t get fixed soon (please please), I will be moving on.

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much for the comments.
I really agree about the crazy link thing, it's a bug a fixed in todays release (5.5).

About the pause bug i’m trying to reproduce it(no luck so far),
The only time automatic pause should occur is when a new headphone/device is unplugged/plugged in.
If you can please provide some more info(does it pause without using headphones?, are you playing via cromecast, does it pause for all shows you are listening to, device?)
Of course i will send you a free code so you can upgrade for free.

Have a nice day :)

Perfect in every way including the icon

Now the app is perfect in every way including the icon

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback, i agree the icon is not so nice, i will give it a new try to make something more crisp, If you have ideas of the look, or missing any features contact the Pods team at podsplayer@gmail.com

Have a nice day!
