I haven't used any other podcast client. Heard great reviews about Downcast so purchased it. I use it to listen to audio Cricket podcasts and it does the job perfectly. The U/I is good and user friendly. Recommended.

Fundamental problem with the app

This podcast app has some fundamental problems, ok once i subscribed to 10 podcast the app lagged a lot and there was a difficulty in getting the updates (which is unacceptable) for a podcast app.

Whenever i subscribe to a podcast, it says NO episode available, i know my subscriptions are updated so i have to tap more in order to list out out all the episodes and there i found out all my episodes

There was no problem in audio, no lag or skipping, its UI is ok but not architected well, i got this app for a dollar so no regret on my purchase
