App Reviews

  • Used to be great, but not anymore

    The app is getting worse with every update. Not only is the UI much less ergonomic than it used to be, the app is also BUGGY AS HELL! It is crashing all the time, the play button is unresponsive 80% of the time, the Watch app got slow also within the last few updates. All around bad. Last month is especially bad when it comes to crashes and unresponsiveness. Sometimes I have to force quit the app only to get it to pause the audio. Terrible quality control.
  • V7 Update Kills “Most Powerful Podcast Player”

    By BrrrPeoples
    The features that made this app the powerhouse for podcast users have been removed. This version is perfect for people that like to discover podcasts and listen to the newest episodes. If you like to organize your episodes into a backlog or create playlists, this app is no longer for you. There is no way to mass mark old episodes as unplayed so that you can listen through an entire podcast backlog. You will need to manually mark each episode as unplayed. Upon updating you will also loose your entire “Up Next” queue. So, if you have a big one, beware. The developer claims that creating custom playlists is not a feature they plan on adding. This update increases the size of everything on the screen. Instead of everything being on one page where you can easily access your filters, it’s been divided into tabs at the bottom. Your filters, where all the episodes you have spent time filling into tidy categories are no the default page to load. You will need to navigate to the filters tab click a filter and then individually add episodes to your up next queue. Bring back these features please: Mark All Unplayed Custom Playlists

    I'm on an iPhone 7 with a Watch Series 4. Otherwise it's a great app.
  • What good is a podcast app that doesn’t play?

    By dar.irl
    Pocket Casts refuses to resume playback, often requiring a complete app restart to work properly again. Tapping the playback button doesn’t actually start an episode half of the time, and there’s minutes of hangtime before the podcast begins to play.
  • Started playing ads - not embedded in podcast

    I listened to a BBC (UK) podcast that I had downloaded, not streaming. At the end a commercial for a local Oregon USA car dealer comes on. I listen through a little confused how the BBC would do that. But okay. Then I rewind the the podcast by a minute and the ad is not there. Clearly the ad came on after the podcast ended and was inserted by the podcast otherwise it play again. I think pocketcasts is doing something it claims it doesn’t.
  • What happened?!

    This used to be a 5 star app, now its taking over 14 much needed gb because it won’t delete podcasts. Why would I want them ‘archived’ by default?!

    I’ve used them all and at the end of the day this one just plain works. You get way more than you pay for with this one. It is 100% worth the price. My sincere thanks to the good folks who developed one of the best apps I’ve ever used and one of the few I couldn’t live without! It’s so good I bought it on both iOS and Android and would buy it a third time for my PC if I could. 😉
