I've been using downcast for years now, making sure i never run out of mind-catching programs. Reliable, easy to navigate, plenty of in-depth tweaks and settings, downcast is definitely one of my never-let-go app.

Tout simplement indispensable.

J'ai essayé pas mal d'applications de podcast mais celle-ci est ma préférée. Fonctionnelle et pratique. Je l'utilise tous les jours en voiture et au bureau.

The app does not update in the background despite having it turned on.

Podcasts do not always sync despite having iCloud sync turned on.

Syncing is very slow even when manually initiating it.
