    Awesome podcast app I use this now and have left my iPod touch in the dresser. This has great search and library UI. Never crashes never lags just works everytime. Full Review

    Just works like I want. Great, simple interface. Was a long time user of doggcatcher and hate to dump on it but pocket casts is just way better. Full Review

    The best podcast app I have ever used. I've been a fan for a couple of years now so I'm not sure why I didn't review this earlier! From the interface to the listening experience, this app covers it all. I especially love the auto download and add to queue, meaning I always have something to listen to on my journeys! Full Review

    I have been using the paid version of this app for quite a while and it has been great. Lately it is using lots of data to download new episodes. Yes... I have WiFi only turned on. I even switched it to download only when charging. It still downloads whenever it wants and if I am away from WiFi or not. Disappointing. Full Review

    1. [Bug] If I'm listening to (streaming) any podcast on PocketCasts, and then if I go back to 10 seconds by pressing that "go back 10 seconds" button. It buffers again. Annoying! 2. [Bug/Feature] Once I'm subscribed to a podcast, I can't read the about section of that podcast. 3. [Request] If only you could provide a pure dark theme. Current one includes red colour too. Please, please replace it with just black and white. Thank you! Update - Problem 1 isn't fixed in this update either. Devs, you don't even reply to this or my email. Sorry, changing the rating of this app to 2 stars. Full Review

    I'm an ios survivor and this beats the awful apple podcast app hands down. My only gripe is that podcast artwork displays on the lock screen. I'd like to be able to turn this off. 5 stars then. Full Review

    In general it's very hard to discover new podcasts unless you know the exact podcast name. The pre-poulated suggestions on the discover section is limited and the search functionality is basic. It would be great to have an advanced search function to narrow results by tags, more categories, country etc. It would also be beneficial to have the ability to leave ratings and reviews for the podcasts. Love the release notes though, always amusing :) Full Review

    I have used Pocketcasts for years and really it doesn't get better than this. Google could really take a note from these guys in useability, with cloud backup of your subscriptions, playlists, easy playback and up next feature, ABILITY TO MARK EPISODES AS PLAYED (LOOMING AT YOU GOOGLE PLAY MUSIC), categories and top list OPML import and more, what's not to love.

    This app is perfect... EXCEPT, since the Nov. 9th update it has been using massive amounts of battery. My review would definitely be 5 stars otherwise. Full Review

    I no longer have this as my go to app for podcasts because it doesn't automatically play shows that I select up next which is a problem while I am driving. If fixed I will go back. Full Review

    I've been using this for sometime. I got it free on Amazon. So good I decided to buy it here. They deserve it. It's a fantastic app. 11/15/2017 - How about a 2x2 widget. Logo and Play as the top two and skip back and skip forward as the bottom two? Full Review
