App Reviews

  • Doesn't work

    By Hankset
    I cannot even create an account to sync across devices. Deleted.
  • Would not recommend for assessability users

    By McThinkBlue
    Used to love this app prior to the last update. If you’re visually impaired user who relies on accessibility invoice over this app has become useless. No longer does it read aloud any of the podcast names but instead reads aloud the title of each episode. Going to have to roll with Apple podcast app or Overcast app until and update correct this issue. Blind people beware!
  • Give me the old layout back

    By adham06
    New update makes navigating something that should be intuitive, very convoluted and largely unnecessary.
  • Terrible UI Update

    By hey_gos
    This app is almost unusable now. The UI update that was made was totally unnecessary and took away some of the functionality like swiping to mark read or even add to up next. They even changed some of the wording so I had to figure out they did... It also now does not sync with my Sonos app. I once contacted the developer to explain an issue I was having and was basically told my issue is not happening. I don’t think they’ll fix this issue either. I am looking for another app now. What a waste.
  • Removed one of the best features!

    By charliebrown331
    I relied on the auto cleanup feature to keep the size of my library in check. I subscribe to a lot of podcasts that are current events-ish but can’t possibly listen to them all, so I relied on this feature to make sure the old ones were auto deleted.
  • Terrible update

    By riarianicanosi
    I can no longer “play all” episodes in my search. I can only “play all” in the up next queue. So frustrating. I’ve used this app for years, guess it’s time to switch.
  • Can’t even log in

    By Skippermark
    Tried to login. It said my password was invalid so I tried to reset it with the forgot password option, but it won’t even send me an email and says the server is too busy. Used to be a good app, but it’s not when you can’t even use it.
  • Sync is broken / website down / UI stinks

    By rlieving
    The strength of PocketCasts has always been it's cross-platform syncing. I bought the Android, web and iOS versions. But the latest update has killed sync and the website was down today. First I couldn't see any podcasts, then I signed out and the site wouldn't let me sign in. If sync isn't working, then there are better podcast apps out there. I've been using PocketCasts for years. But now I question whether anyone should pay for it because the strengths of the platform are gone. Futhermore, the development team doesn't seem to have any quality control or testing. My previous ranking would be perfect 5 stars. Now it's zero (one because that is the minimum).
  • Latest update is a step backwards

    By Salem Mom
    I’ve been using this app for several years with only a couple wishes for features it doesn’t have (nothing major). But this latest “upgrade” takes away things I liked and used. Another reviewer described this well so I won’t repeat it here. I’m looking for another podcast app at this point.
  • Useless.

    By Zachm0914
    Unable to login to my account. From now on, I’ll be using Overcast. Such a shame as Pocket Casts was at one point the best podcasting app for iOS.
