Great player

This is a great podcast player and is well worth trying. Podcasts are main form of entertainment and also my primary source for news about current events. The UI is intuitive, it supports podcasting 2.0, and has great CarPlay support now. Most importantly, there are no ads or tracking. You can subscribe for extra features, which I do as I believe in providing value for value and even without a few features I would support the developer as there is a lot of value here. Drop Apple’s player for an upgraded experience in podcasting. This player should be high on your list to try.

Amazing App. Great interface.

After Stitcher was discontinued I’ve been looking for a good alternative. This app is is great. Super easy to use. Very straight forward and great functionality. Boots up quickly without any issues.

The only downside is that the search engine isn’t the best. As far as I can tell you can only search for podcast titles not episodes or descriptions. I’ve discovered plenty of great podcast by searching for a book title, movie, or any subject and seeing who made an episode on it. So I still have to use apple’s terrible podcast app just for the search engine.

I also wish there was a few more options for organizing podcast. On stitcher I could group my favorite podcasts together then manually organize them. On here you can still manually organize podcasts but they’re all together in one big group.

Other than that, great app. Still deserves 5 stars!

Responsive dev team and clean layout with lots of features

Responsive dev team and clean layout with lots of features I was surprised how well this app works being relatively new to App store. Really would like playlists based on podcasts vs? Episodes . really liking the car play option as well and the visual view by cover art? Export opml would be great as well as search within podcast feed and really enjoy being able to search episodes and not just podcasts. I've downloaded most of the podcast apps in the app store and this one has the potential to be in the top tier! Give it a try ..
