    To my knowledge, I have never written an App Store review before this one. That’s how much I love this app, I felt compelled to spread the gospel. I searched and searched for a new podcast app after the Apple app became useless. With some, I couldn’t get all the podcasts I listen to. With others, I couldn’t manually arrange the list of podcasts I listen to. (That’s a critical feature for me because I don’t use playlists, I go through a daily rotation.) Podcruncher is perfect. It has all the podcasts I listen to. I can move my podcasts around the way I want. It’s super easy to use. It just plain works. I have zero complaints. Seriously, thank you to the people who created this wonderful app.

    Works well, I think it is swell.
  • Some basic features missing

    Decent program but some basic features missing such as being able to search on keyword within a Target podcast. Some podcasts have 200 or even 400 episodes so it’s frustrating to try to find a particular episode by keyword.
  • Great App

    I absolutely love it, the UI is much more intuitive.
  • New version bug

    “Problem saving after updating podcast stats on refresh / ” Happens all the time. Sort podcasts additions are nice but I still wish we could make folders so we can separate shows based on our own categories/labels not just playlists.
  • Absolutely the best. (hint: manual episodes sorting).

    I tried LOTS of other apps before giving a blind-try to PodCruncher based on other reviews. Very glad I did! Two winning features in my opinion: manual sorting, and the smart playlists. Worth every penny. 2018/05 Update: By now I’ve been using PodCruncher for at least two or three years. Still the best podcast manager available in my opinion. Never crashes, great interface, and handy customizable “forward/back” buttons to skip any excessive ads (tip:I have mine set to 15 sec. forward and 5 sec. back) I could not praise it enough! Absolutely great app.
  • needs work, and more frequently

    the app has potential but it’s not able to be usable for me because the developers place the downloaded files on your phone in a location that isn’t reachable by the user outside the app, nor is backed up by itunes/icloud. So it’s impossible to retain files downloaded onto another phone you get, onto your computer, etc. They need some backend housekeeping to have the files accessible to backups, and show up in apples cumbersome “itunes filesharing” so you’re not left with no episodes. (Many podcasts only put the last dozen or so episodes, making you not able to redownload them because this apps poor, anti-user idea of how to store the files.) apples app, for instance, has the episodes all show up and be copied over like pictures when plugged into computer, or can by simply transferred into the computers itunes library via itunes, and can be backed up and restored to your phone (like if you get another phone or are having issues and want/need to perform a “restore”) secondly, some interface annoyances. there’s no playback order control, to play “oldest to newest” type setup. So podcasts that are a “series” will play backwards, that is, newest to oldest. So for example, if you start listening to one say from the other week, when the episode ends, it won’t play the “next” one, but the prior one. Another issue is cumbersome navigation interface, like no memory history of where you’re at, so when you leave and come back, you’re where you were. There’s no “back button” when you leave a place to be able to go back. Great example is if you’re in a particular podcast, and you tap downloads, you can’t go back to the podcast you were on and rather have to re-navigate your way back to where you were. Annoying! Combine all that with other issues with the fact that this app is so rarely updated, that it’s close to being considered abandonware. Check out the apps update history for evidence. Makes pause a little with the developers’ name since it doesn’t appear they seem all that obsessed with coding! Many of the issues / requests raised on the reviews here or on the developers’ website aren’t all that hard to implement.
