Just Great

This podcast app is fully featured and has every adjustment you could think of and then some. I have seen reviews describing it as complicated but it works perfectly 'straight out of the box’. I have tried several of the other most popular apps of this type and find iCatcher to be the best. I use it every day for audio and video podcasts, as it automatically syncs between my iPhone and iPad, which works great.
Some people have criticised the UI, but this is a very personal thing and I think it is just fine.
One last thing that I think is most important is that the developer is responsive to feedback and updates the app regularly.

Best podcasting App I've found...

Really excellent app, which has loads of great features if you want to play around, but is also very easy to use if you want something simple.

Best feature is automatic sync'ing between devices - so that if you start listening to a podcast on your iPod, get half way through and have a break, when you start listening again on your iphone it automatically picks up from where you left off.

Much better than Apple's own 'Podcasts' which has so many issues and bugs it is not fit for purpose.

Excellent App

I'm very pleased with this app. It's customisation features are first rate and once I got used to the interface allowed me to organise my podcasts exactly as I wanted them.

There are some issues though. The interface does need to be tidied up a bit and be made consistent across the app. For example, within a given podcast in the 'Podcasts' tab sorting is accomplished by hitting 'Edit' next to the gear button on the right; when using the 'Playlist' tab sorting is accomplished by hitting 'Edit' on the left; and when inside a playlist sorting is done by hitting 'Sort' on the top next to the 'Edit' button. This is not the only thing of this sort, but it indicates the problem.

More importantly the program crashes at odd times as I'm starting it up. After a crash or two however it settles and works beautifully.

Despite the criticisms thought I would highly recommend this app. It has made it much easier for me to organise and listen to my podcasts and that is really worth something.
