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?

Used to work great, mostly....and it devours data even when it doesn’t have access to it
So here is an update to my last two reviews...a few months ago this app used all my months cellular data in the first two days of my billing cycle even when it didn’t have access to my cell data. It was supposed to only use WiFi. Well I’ve been watching and it seemed the issue was fixed....until today.....half my cell data is gone again due to this app....and my phone tracked its use of the data even when it isn’t supposed to have access to my cell data....I have no idea how that happens but I’m done with this app....the other issues from my second review listed below still exist as well....and I have deleted and reloaded the app....no help.....2nd review is below...this app used to work great with the exception of burning up all my data in two days last month. Now the app crashes and freezes all the time. Also it doesn’t seem to want to download new podcasts for future listening and many of the ones that I have already downloaded over WiFi and show available to listen to off line won’t play anymore without being connected to WiFi. When I try to download new podcasts for future use it just sits and won’t download and old ones already downloaded fail to play off line. Help.

We are very sorry to hear about this issue with cellular data. There's an iOS bug (in the operating system) that has been reported with iOS 12.3.1, that describes a similar behavior to what happened to you. So it might not be a bug in our app. Could you tell us if it fits your situation? Here's a link with more info: https://mjtsai.com/blog/2019/07/26/broken-ios-cellular-data-switch/

Since the new iOS, I have had nothing but problems with Apple’s Podcast app. I tried Stitcher first, as an alternative, but they didn’t have all of the podcasts I listen to available. This was the second app I tried, and I found it to be exactly what I was looking for. First and foremost, it works; doesn’t crash, doesn’t freeze, works with my Bluetooth shower speaker, just fantastic. I haven’t tried it over Bluetooth in my car yet, but I hope the ads don’t cause any problems with that. I love that it’s so quick and easy to install and add to playlist in one simple step. With Apple’s app, that process had become never ending. Two negatives (but I’m thrilled enough with how the app works that I won’t subtract stars for them): ads are a bit startling. To click on something and see a cartoon Trump’s face pop up, rather than what I was trying to do, always creeps me out. I don’t think I would pay for an ad-free version to make them go away, I just wish they could happen at some other point. Also, I miss the on-screen volume controls. Not the end of the world, but I wish that could be added!
