It’s got Bookmarks Baby!

That’s right, this podcast app has bookmarks. I can bookmark any Part of any podcast episode and write a little snippet about that bookmark to help me find it later. Only a few podcast apps have bookmarks. I like the way PlayerFm does bookmarks best. Although, I would like to be able to see all bookmarks in a list without having to click an episode, the way this app does bookmarks remains the best in my eyes! Here’s to you devs.

Developer Response ,

Thanks a lot, THEDAYISMINE! You may see the list of all your bookmarks by accessing the Playlists screen from the bottom navigation panel, then selecting [Bookmarks] on the top bar. Please don't hesitate to mail us at should you need further assistance or have suggestions for improvement. Cheers.

Good not great!

I recently switched from Stitcher and I’ve been searching for a podcast app that lets me put entire podcasts into categories, not just episode playlists. This is actually the only app I can find that does that besides Stitcher. And for that, I really love this app!

My problem with it is that when I try to sort a podcast with a large backload by “oldest first,” it does not show me the oldest episodes. I’ve tried it with a few podcasts now, and I am unable to see the oldest episodes without scrolling all the way down or by searching them manually.

That’s truly my only problem with what is otherwise a great app. Just as a matter of preference, I would love to be able to remove the “suggestions” from the Series Grid View. I’d love to be able to just see the podcasts that I have put into folders without all those extras.

Thanks for your feedback, natejenswold. For your issue, can you please share an example podcast where it occurs so we can further investigate for you? Please feel free to get back to us with your logs by going to Settings > Help > [Contact us]. Meanwhile, we've taken note of your suggestion and we'll consider it in future updates. Cheers.

Latest update took a 2 star app to 1, should really be zero!

The new design/layout makes buttons unpressable/completely disabled in the list view. The play button is almost impossible to press and the three “...” settings button cannot be pressed at all while in list view. This used to only occur with the show on the bottom of the list in the previous version. You now have to open each show individually to gain full functionality of the play/settings buttons.

Why do you make things worst with each update? Regardless of the ‘new’ look... its just a facade to cover up issues you still have not properly addressed.

Also resuming shows STILL does not work as it used to years ago. You still have to play a different show to try ensure your current show resumes from where you let off, what a hassle!

Maple Media deserves an award for taking decent apps and magically turning them into trash. I would suggest looking at Maple Media’s Glassdoor page as well. They treat their employees/devs poorly and seem like an awful company to work for, it truly reflects in quality of their products.

Sorry for the issues you're having, buttpockets. That's certainly not how the app should behave, and we'd like to further investigate it for you. For us to do that, can you please send logs in Settings | Help | [Contact us]? For your issues on the new design, we hope you can share screenshots at so we can have a better understanding and properly address them for you. We look forward to reading from you again soon. Cheers.
