Updated review

Love this app! In my previous review, I complained about the notifications for new shows being broken. Being notified to new shows is a critical feature imo. The developper fixed the bug and now it works flawlessly! Thank you!

Now I started listening to content throught this app again, but I noticed that I don't earn sats anymore for listening to shows... It worked well at the begining but has stopped working about 2 months ago. Not sure why.

Otherwise, I'm super excited to see the progress on this app, and how valued our feedback as users is. Keep up the good work!

Wow! Can really be something!

Last update-Nothing earns anymore, not even promoted stuff. It’s still hot on your battery, uses up an insane amount of data per podcast if you use data. Auto saves episodes I never want to be saved. Just a garbage app, deleted.
Update——-Only the promoted counts sats towards your wallet, any normal podcast you search for and use still counts 1,2,3 sats then resets to 0. They have had months to fix this issue and are silent on Twitter etc., so 2 stars.——————————————————- Next update——I have an iphone 13 mini, bought new, this is the only app I have that cause my battery to heat up and do so quickly. If you do other things on your phone it cause a significant amount of lag. I would put 2 stars, as this should be in beta, but I don’t want to help kill the project because I want it to succeed. Get it together—————— —-update: Actually the earning is pretty garbage everything else works fine.—————— Little convoluted to find any podcast-go to podcasts-search then you can find them, otherwise, if you try to search overall it doesn’t work properly, but it starts earning immediately!!! It’s great! I listen to podcasts daily! Maybe next, audio books?! ****Slight issue-when I click rewind earning for the rest of the episode becomes an issue even if I open and close the app****

Developer Response ,

Hey - we have made some significant improvements to app performance and reliability in the last few months so please update to 0.7.10 and see for yourself. Did you report your issue with earning to our customer support team at the time? If you are still experiencing any issues with earning or have suggestions on how we can make Fountain better, please submit feedback via the main menu in the app or email us at We will be happy to hear from you!

I tried Fountain after Adam Curry’s recommendation to try new podcast apps on his show No Agenda Show. Fountain caught my eye with the logo, and after installing I plugged in the one podcast that I always have trouble finding on Apple podcasts for some reason. Energy 98 The Listening Room (a music podcast) popped right up! For some reason No matter how many keywords I throw into Apple podcast this show does not show up. I can find it on Google’s Podcast thing but the only way I can find it on Apple is to import an old show into the old iTunes software then subscribe from there. Well I’m not on a mac anymore; anyway Fountain’s search seems to be legit as I am now able to subscribe to one of my all time favorite podcasts. THANK YOU, it’s a small thing in life to get a podcast but it makes daily life enjoyable. THANK YOU!!!
