Listen | My Top Podcast Player In 2022

At first blush, Listen’s Podcast App appeared to me to be just another Podcast Player in an already crowded field.

What set it apart for me was it’s silky smooth navigation, “NO ADDS”, customization tools for Podcast Library alphabetized order and arrangement which is important to a tinkerer like myself.

I’d like to see the following features appear in future versioning updates though:

1. Repeat button, for playback
2. Larger Picture of podcast art | logo on player playback screen
3. Would like to see a setting that allows
“My Library” to appear first on App launch as those are the Podcasts I want to get to upon start up.
4. Last but certainly not least:
“APPLE CARPLAY Integration”, please add as soon as possible in near future updates.

Other than above tweak requests, Listen is a superb Podcast playing app…

I listen to a lot of podcasts. I’ve tried the more popular podcast apps... but this one is the I like the most. One of the popular pod players just stopped downloading some of the more obscure podcasts that I listen to. ?? This podcast player has a clean layout and is very intuitive to use. The developers are promising more features to come. I’m looking forward to see what’s next... as long as they don’t make it complicated!

Update causing issues

I have been using this app for a little over a month now. I’ve been happy up until this most recent update, hence the 3 (actually 3.5) stars. I have found that I can only listen to my podcasts if I turn off the WiFi. This is eating up my data. A fix of this would likely bring my review up to a 5 as prior to this I have really liked using this app over the apple podcast app. The sound clarity is better.
One other issue I have noticed since the update is that once an episode is done, it does not jump to the next episode automatically, it instead goes back to the first episode.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. We tried several times to replicate this issue and were not able to. It could be, for whatever reason, your wifi was slow at the moment. Regarding the "next episode" are you using the playlists (swiping up on the player)? If the issue is still persisting, please email us with more details, we'd love to look into it further for you!
