    THE definitive podcast app, hands down. If you like podcasts, this is the app. Don't go to Google play music or Spotify, buy one less pint next Friday, and use it to buy this app. I never miss podcasts with it's Auto updates and downloads. It's a clean and easy to use interface, and the search function searches all podcasts site, so whatever you listen to is probably here. Also, I always enjoy their very silly patch notes :P Full Review

    This would be perfect if it could be set up to automatically play the next podcast in your queue. As it stands now, when you're driving and an episode ends, you have to wait until you're at your destination to start another episode. Full Review

    Pocket Cast is my most used app. The UI is very easy to use and looks good. Pocket Casts has nearly every feature that I could imagine, but doesn't clutter up the screen with them like some other podcatchers that I've tried. My favorite feature is cross device sync, for when I want to switch from phone to tablet without loosing my place. As a bonus all of the documentation is funny and well written. Full Review

    Nice interface. However, why does the podcasts default as played when I subscribe... Also, the app is overheating my phone... Other podcast apps and music apps don't do this to my phone Full Review

    All the features I've ever wanted in a podcast app, and I've tried MANY of them. Keep up the good work. (P.S. I would enjoy a windows store version that actually works, and today I could sync with my Android app.) Full Review

    I love the ability to sort all downloaded from oldest to newest so all play in order after the automatic WiFi download. An easily overlooked feature is the ability to speed up a cast, pocket casts approach allows me to 'remember' the setting to that main podcast and automatically plays others of the same series at the set speed, while not affecting those I wish to have normal. Love it. Plus I always read what's new after an update, its very entertaining! Full Review

    It's ok but the search and discover functions are really quite bad, and should be made like they are in Player FM etc. Hard to find new content in this app. It's also pretty cumbersome to navigate. Full Review

    Reliable podcast app. Not sure if it was worth the dollar, there are several free alts that offer very similar quality. However, It hasn't let me down, all the podcasts I like are easily found. I like. Full Review

    Pocket Casts is getting better and better but there's a couple of features I'd like to see such as adding pods as the next track by default in your Up Next queue and saving/synching your Up Next queue (and other playlists) to your account, along with your subscriptions. Full Review

    Just watch out, every update with a moto phone causes sound playback problems that causes you to have to uninstall and reinstall several times to hope it fixes. Full Review

    Love this app! I have one main feature request: search for a specific podcast within the podcast library, rather than having to scroll and search manually. Once that's implemented you'll have a 5 star review! Full Review
