Some guy nobody know's ,

Unsupervised downloads

I am currently having an issue with the app that causes it to download random podcasts whenever it wants. It is getting very obnoxious canceling the download of 84 different podcasts. I don’t even know what half these podcasts are. It is also using all my data when this happens, I don’t see any settings that could cause this, please send me a response or solution if you can.

Developer Response ,

Sorry to read that. During signup, the app actually recommended popular podcasts to you based on the topics you've selected. We're thinking perhaps you've overlooked the option to not accept/subscribe to those podcasts, as well as the option to disable subscriptions auto-download. Nonetheless, you may go to Settings | Downloads | Subscriptions, and set [Auto-download] to [Never] to disable it, or [Only on wi-fi] in case you prefer the auto-download feature to work only when connected to wi-fi. As to the subscribed podcasts, you may opt to unsubscribe from them by going to the Shows screen. Unsubscribing is done by accessing the podcast's screen and tapping on the round unsubscribe button. We hope our explanation helps. Please feel free to mail us anytime at should you need further assistance. Cheers.

Was Much better before

Super busy and confusing user interface. I can:t find my subscribed Podcasts. The app keeps shoving crap I am not interested in AT me.
The app used to have a nice clean simple user interface.
I can:t recommend this app.
