Better than apple podcast
It’s much better than shifty apple podcasts. You can listen from each episode easily. When you switch on other podcast in apple it is impossible to return to previous certain point because that piece of sheet doesn’t store the history (you can only find there some random episodes you listened to but not the last ones). This app is way better
Solid Podcast App! Could use some minor improvements.
Overall the Google Podcast app is a solid app. Subscribing to podcasts you can listen to podcasts through streaming or (more importantly) by downloading the podcast. It seems to sync your position across devices which is helpful when switching devices. The app downloads quite a few episodes. My main complaints are:
-I don’t see a way to manually mass mark podcasts as “played” (multi select and mark)
-The one feature I would love to have would be integration with Sonos.
-There is no option to sync settings. So for example if I set Podcast A to listen “oldest to newest” then that setting should sync back to the cloud. I shouldn’t then have to also set that on Device B (because when you have 3 devices and around 15 podcasts that becomes a bit of a chore to get them all set the same).
-At the same time there should be an option to chose whether or not to sync settings for a particular podcast (maybe device A has 256GB of storage while Device B has 64GB)
The user interface is the best of all the podcast apps I’ve tried. Its easy to build and rearrange playlists and very difficult to accidentally clear the whole playlist (like on apple podcasts). BUT! Is it just me, or is this app super buggy? First use of the day, it crashes while loading 5-10 times before it loads all the way. Lately, its had trouble loading episode lists from a show’s page, and some things I’d downloaded suddenly have a download error. Sometimes the app will crash after playing for 5 minutes. Is it too much to ask for the app to just work?
