My Favorite (and Most Used) App!

I use this app all the time for two reasons: I LOVE podcasts and I really enjoy the structure of this app. It has a simple layout, it looks modern and up to date, unlike Apple’s podcast app. I really, REALLY enjoy the grid layout of being able to see all of my favorite podcast at once (I hope the developers keep this). I do wish that there were settings for the user and I could customize the layout of the home listen screen, especially since I pay for the upgraded version with ads (SO WORTH IT!!). For example, I don’t really care for the top line up of new shows, I already get notifications for that and the “new” tag pops up on my podcasts when a new one is available. Also, like my second favorite app, Audible, I wish there was an option to change the background/theme to “mode” or something. Definitely not deal breakers, and I would give this app more than 5 stars if I could, but maybe in a future update.

Thanks for the app!

No auto-play?

I have used the heck out of this app and it is mostly awesome. It just has a weird quirk where podcasts don’t automatically play the next episode. It used to. I thought maybe they’d changed that in an update, but I just went back and caught up on another podcast with 4 new eps since the last time I’d listened, and those DID start right off—when one episode ended, the next one would start playing after only a second or two. Most of the time, when one episode ends, it moves to the next episode and just stops. I have to hit play for it to start loading the ep, wait a few secs for it to stop loading and say “error,” turn my wifi off and back on again, go back to the app, hit “play” again, and usually do that a few more times while I wait 5-10 min for it to download the entire episode. Then I have to go to the podcast’s page, scroll to find the last ep I’d listened to, hit play on THAT, then go to the one I just loaded and hit play on that. Then it will play. I know my connection speed is slow, but it does this when I’m connected in other locations with better speeds. I was just resigned to this weird buggy thing until I just checked up on that other podcast and it actually started playing the next ep right away without nannying and cajoling, and before it had downloaded the whole thing. Is that just happening to me?

Ads are dangerous, these developers are psychos

I think most people can agree that although staying off your phone while driving should be done 100% of the time, there will be the once in a while where you have to tap a slip or pause button while on the road. If you're driving and you need to hit one button in the app, you expect it to be a 2 second procedure, yet it is not, because as soon as you interact with the app after not doing so for more than 5-10 minutes, you will be harassed with 10 second ads that are purposely hard to close out of, and purposely put in places that are the most distracting (going to your listen later will prompt it, as well as going to your currently playing podcast, aka the 2 most used functions while listening). I then have to pullover to do what originally should have been, again, a 2 second procedure at most. Many people who are more impulsive will not pull over, and instead will probably battle with the ads with their hand still on the steering wheel, and these developers know this. They know they are creating an absolute road hazard with where they place these ads and what they look like and it's extremely disheartening to see no regard for safety or their users to this degree. You don't deserve to have an app this functional/useful to so many people, you are not responsible with the power.

Developer Response ,

Hi Stoltz23! We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you've experienced with our app. Your feedback is highly valuable to us, and we are committed to continuously improving through regular app updates. Rest assured, we will thoroughly investigate this matter. In the meantime, you may want to try creating a playlist to enable continuous episode playback. Additionally, if you encounter ads while listening, you can play the podcast, lock your phone, and then pause and resume listening without interruptions or seeing ads. We take safety seriously, especially while driving, and we have taken note of your input for our development plans. If you have any questions or require further assistance, please feel free to contact us at help@podcastapp.io. Thank you for your time!
