  • Great app - CarPlay spotty in iOS 12

    By aquaosx
    I love the app, but I often get a blank screen with no selectable podcasts in CarPlay running iOS 12 on a 2017 Audi A4.
  • Best app best value

    By sdh0407
    This podcast app has excellent features including a great way to find and add new podcasts. Not overpriced like other apps. Has a great interface with very useful settings. The only big drawback is no search function within the podcast. This feature is on most of the other apps out there.
  • Perfect mix of customizable and usable

    By Mortified_dipthong
    I prefer the “workflow” of this app to Overcast. Seems much easier to manually manage a queue when you want, but also allows for lots of auto lists.
  • Best Podcast App!

    By Prpolo
    Love the app. All you need is support for Siri Shortcuts and the app would be perfect. Great job all around!
  • Best podcast app on IOS

    By Starbuck011
    This is by far top two best podcast apps in the App Store! It blows away Apple's own app. The “vocal boost” along with the “skip silence” is awesome. My only problem with the app is it does not currently offer password support for podcast like Apple Podcasts and Overcast, if they added that this would easily be a 5 star app. I would like to see the ability to download podcasts to Apple Watch so I don’t have to take my phone with me when I workout.
  • Keep deleting my queue

    By FlyingGS
    My queue is dear to me, it takes me a lot of time to fill it and curate it and every so often my queue is simply wiped out. Previously reported, still happening, don’t seem to care?
  • BEWARE! No support for paid podcasts!!!!!!

    By malekohi
    This may not affect many people, but I couldn’t believe it. I loved the look and features of this app and paid for it, but was unaware of this lack of what I would consider basic functionality for a paid app.
  • Not enough features

    By SharifshshakHdghaha
    I’ve been searching for a podcast app that holds a candle to Podcast Addict after moving from Android. Nothing on the App Store comes even remotely close, but this app is the closest for a fair price. Unfortunately, there’s no way to shuffle play podcasts, or delete a podcast from player view, which means you have to go into the in progress filter to delete it. I’m not a huge fan of the filter system; it makes the app more complicated than necessary. The app attempts to make the UI simple, but ends up oversimplifying it and burying options. It’s a good rudimentary podcast player, but really isn’t nearly as good as offerings on Android, which is really disappointing because I love listening to podcasts.
  • Syncing with web broken

    Please fix and I’ll amend review
  • One of the Best

    By davidreview
    I added “for now” because I wouldn’t be surprised if in the future this app changes in a big way. Time will tell if those changes are all positive. Pros A lot. Although I don’t use the video player often for video podcasts I like how it opens the door for those video podcasts I do want to watch. Although this doesn’t have the Android version ability to stream audio effects (without downloading first) I like how it has those effects. The volume boost and audio skip are huge pros. They even have chapter selection which is a nice touch (for those podcasts that offer it). All this and more and you pay a few dollars. Well worth it if you listen to podcasts. Most podcasts offer these features but put it behind a subscription. I wouldn’t be surprised if this changes. I hope I’m wrong on that happening. Limiting Ad Tracking if and when possible is something I hope this and others apps do. Ability to change the icon and change the theme. But I will say the dark theme doesn’t look as good as it should on Amoled displays due to the screen not turning black. It just turns dark gray. Compared to some apps that completely turn dark you can see the difference when comparing dark theme in this app and dark theme in others.
