Almost perfect

I've used a different podcast catcher for years because it is so easy to use. By using keyword categories, this app makes it almost as easy, but can smoothly handle a whole lot more feeds at once. I only have a few items on my wishlist:

1. The categories should function as playlists of sorts. I'd like to just hit ”shuffle” and let the app randomly play unheard episodes from that category.

2. I have a lot of trouble getting whatever I'm playing over bluetooth to resume playing when I get back in the car. I usually listen to something else instead.

3. Any chance of doing monthly or quarterly payment options?

Thanks for the 5 stars and compliments, Jaie! 🤗🤗

For your concerns:

1. Your subscription categories can actually serve as playlists. To do this, simply go to the Subscriptions screen, select a category, then tap on the Subscriptions icon again on the bottom bar to switch to episode list view. To play episodes randomly, simply sort them by tapping on the icon at the top-left | [Sort episodes...] | [Random].

2. The app can resume playback on your car's Bluetooth. To ensure this, please go to Settings | Playback, and set [Bluetooth actions] to [Resume and pause]. In case it doesn't work properly, feel free to send logs in Settings | Help | [Contact us] so we can investigate further for you.

3. We currently offer annual premium memberships. Nonetheless, we'll take your concern as a suggestion and have it considered in future updates.

No iPad version

Until you create a version of this app built directly for the iPad I cannot use it. Merely taking the iPhone version and stretching it out won't do.

Pocketcasts and a host of other podcast apps have special iPad versions. Want to love this app and it's good on just the iPhone... Just terrible on the iPad. Will have to go back to pocketcasts until it happens I guess. Let us know if such a version is even in the works please. If not I won't bother coming back to check.
