  • Auto Download Doesn’t Work

    By tatronix
    I turned on auto-download on my subscribed podcasts. However, it doesn’t seem to work. I get notifications, but it only downloads when I click into the notifications. Major fail. This app was a waste of money. The auto download app on the Apple podcast app works.
  • Issues with CarPlay

    By Heycodyson
    I’ve noticed some issues with Apple CarPlay. If used in conjunction with maps, after the voice prompts from maps, the podcast with either stop completely, stutter for 5-10 seconds, or pause briefly (as it should). I’ve also noticed this app can cause CarPlay to crash until I force close it, clear memory, and unplug and plug it back in. I’ve tried to fix this multiple ways, but it always comes down to this app causing the problem.
  • Random Chipmunks

    By AppReview+
    Whether in a car mount or in a pocket, this app will randomly increase the speed of your podcast to an un-listenable level. Sometimes it likes to continuously cycle through too fast to too slow. I am guessing that there is some shake to control speed anti-feature that I cannot find to turn off in the settings. If you ever move while listening to podcasts or like to listen while driving, this app will drive you insane.
  • Latest version does not download podcasts

    By Antiduplicity
    Other apps have the latest podcasts. Pocket cast just sits there. Needs better way to download new episodes
  • Still Lacking?

    By davidreview
    All this time and this app has never added the ability to use audio effects WITHOUT downloading episode first? I don’t download the episodes I listen to so being not being able to use those effects is a huge con. That’s the reason I use another podcast player. Because it allows those effects while steaming. If it added that feature this would be my go to player. Having said that this is one of the best podcast players around. That and with me using iOS and Android at times being able to use this on both platforms is another pro. That and the ability to watch video. Although I don’t use the video player as much it’s a nice touch.
  • Good for beginners I guess

    By blueXenologer
    Terrible for importing. I imported my data from Overcast and it got all the podcasts, unlike Breaker. I was willing to go through and manually mark where I was in each podcast, but this app WOULD NOT save the changes. All I want is to change the played/unplayed status. If I have to remember what ep I'm on for every podcast, why mark played/unplayed at all? This failed at seriously the FIRST thing I tried to do to make the switch. So I guess if you start with another app, maybe stay there.
  • Love but issues with CarPlay.

    By Bclark
    Dig the app. A big upgrade from Apple Podcasts. However, when hooked up to CarPlay, it freezes up, causes my phone to restart and seems to make other audio apps flip out. I think it also causes calls to get diverted to speaker instead of over CarPlay. If those glitchy items get fixed, I’d give it 5 stars.
  • IPhone X screen real estate

    By Natty305
    I would not normally expect things but this is a paid app. I would expect video podcasts to use way more screen real estate on an iPhone X than they currently use on this app. Please update this. Also, Apple Watch app seems to drain the battery. (Not blaming shift jelly completely because it could be the last update but could still be shift jelly)
  • Cannot log in

    By Someone else 124686435676444
    I am notable to log into the mobile application despite being able to log into the web client of this app. Why did I purchase this if it doesn’t work in parity with the web app? Much frustration
  • Awesome

    By michael12345!@#$%
    Love this app I'm curious is there support for this app with video podcast shows as well.
