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.

Switched from PocketCasts!

Very slick podcast app with a built-in review system and reliable downloads (unlike another popular podcasting app). 4 stars because of no way to limit the number of episodes to keep for a podcast - a handy feature for hourly news podcasts which i would generally set to just 1. Keep up the good work!

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 ..
