That’s right, we’ve fixed the bug where longer podcast names were being cut off on the podcast screen. You’re welcome. Wait… that’s the wrong line. We’ve added FOLDERS! Yes, Folders! Now you can organize your ever-growing podcast list with our brand spanking new, beautifully designed FOLDERS!

Oh, and we also fixed a ton of bugs too.

It's my life partner now...

Honestly I've been using pocket casts for nearly 5 years... I don't think I could ever change and of the devs ever need me a donation I'm happy to support this more. The app is fully featured the per podcast settings and customisation is just the best. You have a favorite podcast? Don't worry you'll only get a notification for it and it'll be at the top of the playlist at it's own listening speed... Too good. Have an app with an annoyingly long intro song... Set the skip time! And you'll never hear it again.

I’ve been bouncing around podcast apps for months now and, as I return to pocketcasts, I must ask myself why I wasted all that time. This app is beautifully laid out, it works wonderfully and it allows me to easily access my podcasts. Happy customer, thank you!

Features buried and hidden, and in some cases gone.

This used to be my favourite podcast app. Since the major ui overhaul, months ago now, I cannot find many features that used to be really easy and intuitive to locate. There is no way to stop downloads in progress any more. Force close the app, open it again, and the downloads resume immediately. I had to turn off WiFi on my iPad to finally stop them. I’m gutted and feel like the money I spent, once gladly, is now misspent. Have tried to adjust but trying to do anything other than play or pause a podcast is now a chore. What went wrong guys???
