Decent alternative to Apple
I’d give this 3.5 stars if I could based on my first couple days of use. Decided to try this because Apple’s Podcasts app is becoming problematic with certain shows I subscribe to and this is totally free with no IAPs. It’s fairly simple and easy to use although some of Apple’s nice features are missing (you have to make a list of shows to do autoplay, limited browsing of podcasts and I also can’t find some podcasts I subscribe to via Apple’s app, also removing episodes is not as smooth a process) but it did confirm some of my issues with some podcasts not updating is an Apple issue so for now I will keep using this app. If the Apple app is giving you problems this one is worth a try, if nothing else keep it installed as a backup. Would be much better with more of Apple’s features added but it is fine so far and I’m getting what I want out of it.
Basic and Room to Grow
The app is behind on some features that are found in other podcast players. I suspect a lot of people will one star this app but for me it does what I need it to. It keeps all my podcasts in sync across my devices. Most importantly for me Google Home. If I star a podcast at home I can now easily pick up where I left off at home on my phone.
Also if you have certain podcast you subscribe to from Patreon those specific podcast links do not work in this app at the moment. Hopefully this will get fixed in future updates.
Switched over from $&@‘
Only thing I would like is the availability to change the layout of the screen that displays all the podcasts i suscribe to. Only option now is to have them vertically.
Love the sync as right now he podcast app I use requires a subscription to be able to do it. Most podcast apps require a subscription for this.
I assume this will get regular updates as well.
