    As many other reviewers have mentioned, I used to love this app, but recently it's gotten to be very buggy. It seems to be a Bluetooth issue; I'm a heavy duty user and I'm almost always listening on earphones or a speaker. It's useless to me if I can't do that. Whenever it's on Bluetooth the podcasts will just stop streaming. Have about had it. I emailed the developers--nothing.

  2. Sandy Schuppner-avatar

    Sandy Schuppner


    apk I have loved the drive fiction/layout on this app, and have been mostly saturated with almost everything about the paid version. The biggest problems I am dealing with is that it freezes or crashes whenever it connects to both of my cars bluetooth. I have also had a bunch of issues where it uses battery in the background. Then if you put it to "sleep", it will constantly stop while you are trying to listen to something. Then you have to go in and cancel the "put to sleep" function in settings.

  3. David Withington-avatar

    I've used BeyondPod for many years, bought the premium unlock key, and recommended it to friends. But over the past months, when on a Bluetooth connection, the player stops playing multiple times during a podcast. I've asked the developers twice and am assured they are "working on it". But it still continues to annoy daily. Was the best - but has become the worst.

  4. Brandon Pollard-avatar

    Brandon Pollard


    UPDATE: this is still going on months later. Sadly it's time for me to move on to a new app. I have long enjoyed this podcast player and am a paid user. It's not necessarily the best for everyone, but as a heavy podcast listener who likes more granular control over their listening it's perfect for me. HOWEVER, since the most recent update it has been frequently crashing (multiple times per day). I've been expecting a patch to be pushed out, but after probably two weeks I am still waiting.

    I have been a long time paid user. I loved this app when I first found it. I have installed it on over 5 devices. That said, it has become incredibly buggy in that it will just stop playing randomly, sometimes every 2-3 minutes for half an hour. It will also not pause playback even though the buttons are showing that it's paused. It's become so frustrating that I want to throw my phone out the window or find a new app. Since the former isn't an option, I am in the market for a new podcast manager. I have put it off for so long hoping that things will work out. Unfortunately, unless these bugs are fixed, I will be switching to something more reliable.

  6. Steven Wicklund-avatar

    Steven Wicklund


    This app has just stagnated and gotten worse over time. The UI is outdated, and it's podcast playlist features are awful. Why am I allowed only one playlist? Why does it constantly prompt if you want to replace it with a new one! It's recently started acting up, attempting to stream podcasts I have already downloaded. I paid for premium, and it was fine for years, I wish they would have invested in improvements.

  7. George Boyle-avatar

    George Boyle


    I've been using the paid version this app for years, but the most recent update has made it nearly unusable on Samsung devices. Instead of using better code, and releasing a working version, they simply added a pop-up saying it doesn't work well on Android devices, and gave instructions to fix it, but the instructions bear no relation to actual options on a Samsung phone, so the app is still broken. I wish I could get my money back so I can give it to a developer whose updates actually work.

  8. Mark Krueger-avatar

    Mark Krueger


    Had promise at one point. However, out of the blue it wiped out my entire queue, that was last straw. UI is horrible, try to press the menu for an episode and it thinks you are hitting the scrollbar and it jumps potentially hundreds of episodes away from where you were browsing. No way to search an individual feed, can only do global search and even that seems to work rather poorly.

  9. Beth Aitman-avatar

    Beth Aitman


    Unfortunately this app has recently become completely unusable for me. When listening over Bluetooth headphones, it repeatedly stops playing (often multiple times a minute) and there doesn't seem to be any fix. None of the other features can make up for that.

  10. Stephen Wright-avatar

    Stephen Wright


    Update: reducing to two stars because the app is constantly stopping without reason. Original: Love the detailed settings and ability to customize. But since Android 11 it keeps turning audio off for Bluetooth every 30 seconds. Please fix this most aggravating bug before I turn to a different app! Thanks.

  11. PETER T-avatar



    LONG time user. Got into podcasts early about 2011 when everything was RSS based. This app was the best and continued to provide me a wonderful podcast experience for many years. I 100% got my money's worth out of this app and want to thank the development team behind it. Unfortunately all good things I guess must end? With the last update the app has become nearly un-usable. Not sure how it back slid so much. Might be Android related, but I held out for a fix, Now I'm giving up. Been a good run

  12. Craig Rees-avatar

    Craig Rees


    I've used this app happily for several years and bought the Premium version too, BUT, over the last few months it has become practically unusable!! The App won't save any of my settings anymore, randomly stops streaming podcasts, feeds that I know for a fact have new Podcasts no longer update. Such a shame, as it's been my go to Podcast app. Sadly, no longer. Time to move on and download a new Podcast App. Podcast Addict here I come!!

    I bought the premium version many years ago and it delivered what it promised - definitely money well spent. However, over the last 10-12 months I have been experiencing lots of stability issues with the product which is a great shame as this was my go to app. Not entirely sure what is going on with the developers, but all I ask is that they try to restore this player to its former glory. In the meantime I will trial another product.

  14. michel glorian-avatar

    michel glorian


    I ahave been using this app for years (paid version). Like others, I also have seen some bugs appearing, but from my experience they are all related to the widget. Otherwise it does work fine. I have learned how to use it : only use the widget when the player is already active otherwise, big mess. I guess the dev team has hard time maintaining the stability with Android evolving that fast and users who only had to pay 10 usd 10 years ago...

  15. Jake d-avatar

    Jake d


    I purchased beyond pod years ago and it continues to be a great product. It has so many customization options that I can get it just the way I want. It also has export and important functions that make transitioning to a new phone easy. I remember thinking it was a little expensive at the time for an app, but it has been well beyond worthy of that measly eight bucks.

  16. Michael Lee-avatar

    Michael Lee


    It got buggy, where when I paused and resume with notification, I can't control the track within the app. It will start a new audio stream if I play within the app. Also, it has been many years and sync across devices still not available. It's really not hard to store where ended my listening for each track...

  17. Vincent Hans-avatar

    Vincent Hans


    What happened; now it won't even update or download anything, not even a single feed or a single podcast. All it does now is display the message about upgrading to pro if you wan't to download more than one podcast at a time. Except it won't even do that now. Time for a different podcast manager. :( :( :(

  18. Jonathan Saville-avatar

    Jonathan Saville


    Long time user, it's been my go to podcast player for years. Over the last few months it's become nigh in unusable. Refuses to open, cuts out in the middle of playing podcasts, just buggy as all hell. Please fix it so I can change my rating.

  19. Kyle Munz-avatar

    Kyle Munz


    I'm done, a once decent app is now unusable. Notifications that can't be swiped away are annoying. Forgetting my playlist and losing the order of my episodes is annoying. Android Auto compatibility is hit or miss, also annoying. But now it's begun hijacking my other audio apps, again, which makes it unusable. Bugs that were fixed in the past always come back making it unusable. If this were a free app I could say "you get what you pay for" but it's much harder to accept from a paid app. I've put up with this for too long just because I was too lazy to migrate my podcasts to another app and hey, I paid for it so I might as well use it, right? Well, bye.

  20. Joshua Brown-avatar

    Joshua Brown


    Long time paid user now moving on. The app has become really buggy. It will stop if I get a sound notification from a different app while using navigation. It will start playing on its own. It will start and won't stop playing, and then it starts playing multiple podcasts at once. These are all recent issues for me. App used to be great, now it's just a buggy mess!

  21. Jack Wilson-avatar

    Jack Wilson


    I've been using BeyondPod as a paid user for something like 8 years. I have nothing bad to say about the app itself, the interface and useablility is absolutely fantastic. The one deal-breaking fatal flaw is that it CONSISTENTLY fails to connect to Bluetooth, and since my phone doesn't have a headphone jack, I'm left with an inability to use the app for its intended purpose. Same goes for audio casting. I do not have these issues with any other media apps. Wish it worked, but it just doesn't.

  22. Nicholas Symonds-avatar

    Nicholas Symonds


    Like so many others on here, I have been using this for years and bought the premium features. Then in the last year or so it began going down hill and buggy. Alert constantly saying its looking for new media (it isn't, but I can't swipe it away) and it's a 50/50 chance if when I launch it, it freezes for around a minute until it either asks me to wait for it or close it down. If I close down at this stage and then open again it will usually work straight away. Time to move on I think

  23. Ben Pritchard-avatar

    Ben Pritchard


    Used to be excellent but gone stale. Bugs and crashes creeping in as the phone O/S gets updated. It's annoying and enough to put me off using the app. A real shame because it was by far the best.

  24. Scott Crawford-avatar

    Scott Crawford


    Like everyone else, I'm ditching this app now. I bought it ages ago and got good use of of it for years but each new android version brought new bugs they haven't kept on top of and too many important features don't work as they should any more and new features are rare. Using it to search for new podcasts is a waste of time. Sadly it's just not as good as the other podcast apps anymore and I wouldn't recommend it.

  25. Charlie Arehart-avatar

    Charlie Arehart


    Goodbye, beyondpod. After using it daily for 6 years, I'm about to uninstall for the last time. I just tried it, to see if it would fix increasing problems. Sadly, NOTHING was preserved (w/out warning me) . Lost all shows, their categorization, episode played status, saved episodes, etc. Was willing to see if a reinstall would fix things, but having to start from scratch I'll be trying other alternatives. Like breaking up with a person who had so much going for them but just too much baggage. :(

  26. Gruber McTuber-avatar

    Gruber McTuber


    It would be nice if I could go from my playlist to delete a feed without having to look it up in the feed list. I swear this app used to have that functionality. Update: Uninstalling and moving on because it's started hanging up for several minutes when I try to open recently. Need to wait or reboot. What a shame, used to be a good app.

  27. Matt Ellerbrock-avatar

    Matt Ellerbrock


    I'm sadly giving up on this app after 10+ years of ardent loyalty, after more than 2 years of frustration. About 6 months ago I downgraded to v4.2.18, which seemed to be the last stable build, as I couldn't give up BeyondPod's unmatched SmartPlay. After I saw the recent major update, v4.3.8, was finally out I hesitantly upgraded. I regret doing so; the app is still virtually unusable. I found a decent replacement to SmartPlay with Pocket Casts and their "Up Next" feature and have been a happy user there for over a week. Don't bother upgrading, the developer has either lost the will or the skill to keep this app regularly bug-free.

  28. Kristjan Parve-avatar

    Kristjan Parve


    Long time user but really buggy now as all the other reviewers have mentioned. Bugs like 2 podcasts playing at the same time. App opening to a white screen. Crashing in the background when not even open.

  29. Michael J-avatar

    Michael J


    May 2020. Finally giving up. Too buggy unless you downgrade to an old version 2019It's the podcast app I use out of inertia but I wouldn't recommend. On my S8 it often lags to open. The widget only works about half the time and it freezes up to a degree that is unacceptable unless you've been using it for as long as I have and don't want to transport all your RSS feeds out. I love the layout compared to something like pocketcasts and that's the only reason I'm here.

  30. LeRoy Crouch-avatar

    LeRoy Crouch


    Gives an error every time I attempt to refresh my podcasts. It seems it has finally ran it's course. I paid to unlock it long ago, and have sworn by it for so long but it has finally gasped it's last breath. I'm guessing the developers no longer care. Steer clear from it. Error given is Web exception unable to connect to remote web server http status code 404.

  31. Nova Hob-avatar

    Nova Hob


    So out of loyalty I thought I'd give the new update a go, v4.3.8. First bug is that compact view doesn't work. For me I've not gone any further, UNINSTALLED AGAIN! Come on how can this get through testing after all this time. Back to Podcast Addict now. Same functionality, regular updates, great developer. Worth the price. Note: v4.2.18 which works great, this is a 4 star app, still better than current.

    This app was awesome for several years it just worked. No idea what has happened but now it barely works and what should be a simple task to make my morning commute nice, now its a daily source of frustration first thing in the morning. Recently it had also stopped updating my feeds overnight. Sad when I just find it easier to browse to the website and stream directly from a webpage.

    Excellent app! This has be the best and wonderful podcast app now compared to previous versions of this app, thnx for fixes. I've using this podcast player for all these days without any problm. It has advanced features like auto build the playlist and automatic scheduled downloads that you won't find in other apps. In particular, I appreciate the numerous customizable settings and the updated news feed, story telling for children is awesome I'm enjoying and love the smart playlists of this app.

  34. Jamie Robson-avatar

    Jamie Robson


    Running on Android 9. The freezing issues reported by others, I did have them but they seem to have been remedied by a recent update. A fantastically flexible podcast app that allowed me to manage and listen to different feeds in different ways, e.g. some I only want to download single episodes, done I want to start from the beginning... Definitely recommended.

  35. Randy Holyfield-avatar

    Randy Holyfield


    Hard to judge this app too harshly as I've been using it for years, but like many of the other recent reviews it has become too buggy. I have been dealing with the delayed start issue for over 6 months now with no solution and customer support is slow to respond and with no solutions anyway. Newest issue is that attempting to download a new episode of a podcast causes the app to crash altogether. Streaming function works still, but downloading old podcasts out of timeframe range is impossible

  36. John McDaniel-avatar

    John McDaniel


    They broke it. Used to love this app but after today I'm done. How does a product tank after years of being so great? It was so customizable, so reliable... Take note. Don't download this. Get something that works. You get 2 stars instead of 1, factoring for how awesome it was.

  37. Chad Lubrecht-avatar

    Chad Lubrecht


    Once it was great. Getting hard to use. Like many other users I'm giving up on this after years of use, even after paying for full version years ago. For past year, often had problem where I'd select one epidose to download, and it would download another instead. Now it often freezes and must be restarted whenever manually downloading an episode. Automatic downloads still work, but as soon as you try manually downloading episodes it gets painful.

  38. Jarek Batorski-avatar

    Why isn't this app more popular! I've been using it for years and recently compared it to a few other podcast apps, and BeyondPod still is one of the most feature packed apps out there. The killer feature for me is the AutoPlaylist and how configurable it is vs other apps with similar functionality. Whenever your queue empties out, it will automatically regenerate based on rules you setup. You tell your auto playlist to add a number of episodes from specific podcasts. You can tell it to play oldest, newest, or random episodes. You can group your podcasts into custom categories and add apply the same rules to them as well. I just subscribe to a new podcast, add it to a category or update my auto playlist rules, and don't have to worry bout manually keeping my queue populated. And it's got all the other stuff you'd expect from a podcast app. Playback speed (global and per podcast), cast support, add any podcast you want, plus tons more. Best of all, the paid app is a one time cost and you don't deal with ads vs subscription models I'm seeing become more common.

  39. Bryant Wagner-avatar

    Bryant Wagner


    There have been several interface bugs for a while, but they've been tolerable, mostly. Sometimes episodes will mark as played when you try to play it, which is very bad with the episode deletion upon finishing setting. Now the player will disappear if you pause to long. Otherwise it has good features.

  40. Kate Thomas-avatar

    Kate Thomas


    No longer stays in the control panel or responds to controls on headphones, so now stopping and starting the player means unlocking the phone, navigating to the app, and *then* starting or stopping the player. Feh. I've used the paid version for years but I suppose it's time to move on.

  41. MJ Wright-avatar

    MJ Wright


    Wish it would stay on my notification bar like it used to do. And would like a better search like podcast addict where i can find specific episodes or shows and sort out the more popular shows, but it's still my favorite podcast app

  42. Jeff McCann-avatar

    Jeff McCann


    Like a lot of reviewers, I've been using this app forever and functionality has slowly declined. Stopped working properly from the lock screen (either doesn't display or the buttons do nothing). It used to be so simple to play and pause episodes over the course of the day, now I have to relaunch a lot of the time.

  43. Niles Allen-avatar

    Niles Allen


    Like so many this was the best app , paid for premium. But I keeps getting buggier and buggier. Now it opens only sometimes when I activate and have to force close and try again. It also loses a couple of my patreon pod links every few weeks . Been to lazy to switch but now that I'm back to work not worth the hassles

  44. J-avatar



    If when running, the application no longer appears in the drop down notification bar, go to app settings and turn on notifications for the app.

  45. Deb-avatar



    Latest update 13th? May 2020 causes app to crash if you try to download a new ep of a podcast. Download stops about half way through and get "App has stopped close/wait" etc msg while any playing episode keeps playing in background. Also stops some functionality of phone too. (Very long time, paying, user)

  46. Tom S.-avatar

    Paid user here, controls/app navigation is terrible and the app leaves a notification on the top of your screen at all times regardless if you're listening or if the app is even open.

    I have the full version The play button on the widget on the home screen isn't working anymore, lots of problems since the last update, worked great generally before. Edit: buggier than ever, really frustrating having it crash in the middle of playing or not updating correctly.

    Decent podcast management and auto playlists. However, the auto download notifications now get stuck unless I manually run the update. The app also hangs fairly often.

  50. Joe Welsh-avatar

    Joe Welsh


    This keeps getting buggier with each version. Almost never restarts of you stop playing for more than 15 min and now this latest version keeps locking up and I actually have to force stop. I've been using this for many years and I think o finally need to migrate to another app.

    Beyond Pod seems to be going downhill. App updated on it's own with auto update turned off. And on the update removed all feeds and episodes. This is mediocre at best now.

    Takes a few minutes to start the app now, and has other little broken details - there's a blank notification bar I sometimes can't dismiss, after pausing a long podcast, it doesn't always resume at the right spot (usually a few minutes later).

  56. Dan Thomases-avatar

    Dan Thomases


    Best way to sort, read liner notes, and store podcast hands down. Streaming and downloading options are EASY to manage. Has difficulty with continuing audio disruptions from other operating apps and notification bar to control advancing, pausing, or playing episodes intermittently.

    Better than replacements in the market. Keyboard doesn't allow naming category while adding feeds if certain number exists--have to add category then add feed.

    I love this podcast app. One great feature that no one else has is the ability to download episodes in order rather than the latest first. It works great for listening to a multi-part series from the beginning.

    Since the upgrade the search function isnt working very well. Nothing I'm looking for is coming up. Also I dont like that when I pause the app it disappears from my notifications. It makes it more difficult to use.

    4/5 since it has some bugs. For instance, it open randomly in the background every now and then, and the screen freezes sometimes while using the app. 5/5 if they fix all the bugs.

    It has a few quirks here and there but overall this is a very stable and quick app. It also doesn't have any funny things that happen to controversial podcasts. Great choice!

    Unable to reorder the list of pod casts. Would be nice if you could reorder manually, or by algorithm such as most recently used or most frequently used. Also, often the app locks up at startup and I have to kill it, then it starts up and works ok. Tried clearing cache and reopening, could just be my phone I suppose but it wasn't a problem in the past. I own this app.

    7+ year paid user who for the longest time appreciated the granularity and features of beyond pod. Like other reviews have said the lack of development as time went on has led to some critical features and pain points. I swapped over to a different app 6 months ago after unending issues. I came back to try one last time because I missed some of the functionality. No chance, unresponsive hangups and issues abound. It's been good beyond pod, thanks for the memories.

    UPDATE: down to 1 star because 90% of feeds are not downloading properly and erroring out. RIP original BeyondPod, guess I'm jumping ship now. Has always had the features I enjoy and have tried other apps only to come right back. Not 5 stars because after the latest update there have been significant performance and stability issues. Not unusable, but aggravating and buggy.

  115. Evan Benshetler-avatar

    Evan Benshetler


    I give BeyondPod 2 stars now, though I considered it 5/5 for many years. There have been too many stability issues now and too many bugs switching between feeds - core stability and features that should have been rock solid since forever are now problematic. I feel sad because I have enjoyed it for so long, but it's finally pushed me to try a different podcast app. Hopefully I can find one as nicely featured and without a ridiculous subscription model.

    I really like the application when using it on my phone. Using it on Android Auto however, is often quite frustrating. When first starting the app, it seems like it never manages to load. I always have to start it on my phone for it to work.

  117. James Hay-avatar

    I have been using beyondpod for over a decade, but I'm dumping it. 1) it has had the tendency, when in a specific podcasts "all episodes" list, to display all the episodes of one or more other podcasts in addition to the one I am looking at. 2)it does not properly erase podcasts after you delete them. I had over 9 GB of audio and music files, which didn't seem to be attached to a program. Google Files discovered hundreds? thousands? of old podcasts that I listened to on Beyondpod.

    Used this app for years and it was fantastic, but after a year of decline and for the past month or so, I haven't been able to use the app at all.

    I love the smart playlists of this app. But the app was pretty broken for more than a year and the most recent update just undid the most recent issue it created. I was expecting all the other little issues to be cleared up too since it took so long to get this version to us. Are the new owners trying to drive people to competing apps?

    I have the paid version, and have used it for 5+ years now. I am uninstalling it today as every update has made the app worse in tiny incremental ways. Getting back to the "all" or "what to play" feed is more difficult than it used to be. Hitting back results in leaving the application rather than going to the playlist or to the "what to play" or "home" screen. I get random crashes or lock-ups. Recently, it has started randomly pausing or skipping tracks on it's own. I tried disabling battery saver, using no Bluetooth, etc., with no success. It was a good run that ended about a year ago, and I'm finally moving on.

    Used to the best podcast app, but an update in November 2018 broke many important features. Not only have there been no fixes since then, but when asked about it, users are told that the development team is working on fixes but have no ETA for an update. I've used this app for almost a decade and have been holding on, confident these issues would be addressed, but after 4 months of no fix or meaningful explanation, I'm unfortunately in the process of switching to Podcast Addict.

  127. Sebastian Ramirez-avatar

    Buggy! I used to love this app because I didn't have to think too much about it. The interface was clunky, the back button totally unpredictable, and generally a pain to navigate, but adding episodes to a playlist is super easy and the selection couldn't be beat. However, of late, it just refuses to quit. You can dismiss it, but it won't go away. Buggy, and annoying to control is too much for me sadly.

    All good things come to an end. I've been a paid user since at least 6 years ago. Once upon a time, it was a great app. Sadly, it hasn't worked for months. I get a crash error everytime I launch stating it can't use my external sd. I have no interest in reconfiguring to use my more limited internal memory. Apparently, the app has been abandoned as it has not been updated in nearly 6 months. Pity. It went from greatness to a dud within the blink of an eye.

    , I've been using this app for years. Been recently running into issues with a constantly pausing. It used to be every few minutes, now it's down to every 30 seconds. It makes it completely unusable. Try cutting your lawn while having to unlock your screen every 30 seconds to hit play. or trying to use it while you're driving, forget about it. what a shame this was one of the best podcast apps out there and now it's terrible.

    Been using this app for probably 8 years, and on the whole it does what it's supposed to do. I think it could be a bit too complicated for new users though, considering the amount of settings and some weird default values (like sorting). The only real issue i have with it is that the notification when the app is paused sticks around. If I swipe it away it will return later and will turn into an eternal loading spinner when you tap it to play, then your only option is to force close the app...

    I've been a user of the pro (paid for) version for years and it has been excellent. However, for the past few months it keeps pausing. being a developer, I can see what the problem in minutes and use android auto as a work-around. so I'm deeply disappointed that they have not fixed this problem as quickly as the user community would like and I personally would have expected. I cannot in all good faith recommend this app which was excellent, but is now blighted by poor compatibility & support.

    I bought the unlock key for this and had been using it for years without incident. It has been unusable for several months now, and there haven't been updates to solve the problems. I cannot play from the widget, and it crashes completely if I try to stream a podcast rather than download it. A smaller issue is that when you play a podcast it prevents your phone's screen from sleeping. A podcast app without a functional play button is completely unacceptable. Do not bother with this app.

  133. Joe Ledvina-avatar

    Was great, now buggy and other apps have caught up or surpassed it. I paid for this app maybe 5 or 6 years ago and it's been one of my most used apps. Since October, i also have to force close it most of the time, and get the persistent "downloading new episodes..." notification. It also stopped being able to name episodes by their titles, so a bunch of my feeds show episodes like "Planet Money 43772193". After 5 months, I'm done waiting and ready to spend the time setting up a new app.

    Goodbye, BeyondPod. I was a huge fan for years but since the app changed hands things have gone downhill. Bugs just aren't being fixed. Bluetooth functionality with my car has been half-broken for over a year. Metadata is not properly displayed and the app generates ANRs every time I get in the car. I've waited A LONG TIME for things to improve but I'm sick of waiting. It's time to ditch this once great app. What a shame. So goodbye, BeyondPod. Pocket Casts is my new go-to podcast app.

    I have used the paid version for years, but lately it is very slow to start. When I press play on the widget for a downloaded podcast, a notification pops up that it is syncing feeds which takes a few minutes to run and my phone pops up that the app is taking too long and offers to kill it. I don't have any feeds set to to anything automatically, I manually download what I want to listen to, so there is no reason for it to sync anything. I am looking into other apps to replace this with.

    This is still my favorite podcast app but it has gotten really buggy. Most of the time when it opens I get the "app isn't responding" prompt but it works fine.

Anything having to do with managing the podcasts (playback speeds, auto updates, playlists) is great!

    Lack of updates is forcing me to move to Podcast Addict. I've used the paid version for several years but the last update caused it to stop randomly during podcast. I rolled it back to a previous version going through a big hassle and it was great for about six months. I mistakenly updated it to the current version and I am just not going to go through that hassle again to roll it back. Moving on.

    I've been using this app for a few years now, and it's never let me down in terms of available podcasts, and playback quality. It does time out fairly often when downloading larger podcast files, and the widget no longer works very well, as it can't start replaying unless you enter the app and start the player, it won't work from the home screen, or the lock screen anymore.

    I've been using this app daily for years and I've loved it. However, updates have been slow recently and it's become so buggy that I had to switch to another app. It often crashes if it has been paused for about 10 minutes. I have to restart the app to get back to my podcast. When it doesn't crash completely, It often becomes unresponsive to headset unpause buttons. My phone updated to Android Pi, and since then I have been unable to pause/unpause it at all with headset buttons.

    constantly crashing. if you try to resume from status bar it freezes and are forced to force close. sometimes podcasts automatically pause every 15 seconds for no reason and you have to press play to resume. end up uninstalling and reinstalling 3 or 4 times a week. i paid for the paid version years ago and feel like they finally gave up on this app so I'm forced to move on to something different. don't waste your time. download something that actually works.

    This is by far my favorite podcast app. The SmartPlay cannot be found anywhere else and it makes all the difference. But I'm starting to get regular hangs and non dismissable notifications that weren't there before and I'm worried that the updates aren't helping or happening... That being said, I'm still using it because of the SmartPlay functionality. Hopefully it gets fixed soon! Update: 2 months later and no change. Still works, but also still getting those hanging notifications.

    Like others, I have used this player for years and had purchased the unlocked version. I have been waiting for an update for months to fix the issues that make it simply annoying to use. I listen in the car and can not look at my phone every few minutes to restart the podcast I'm listening to because the app stops playback randomly. I'm sad that I'm going to have to find a new podcast player, but it looks like that's the case.

    This podcast catcher is now worthless. I paid for the premium app, used it for years. I have now moved to Podcast Addict. The developer ruined this app October last year and still has not fixed the myriad of issues. 1. White screen for 20 seconds when you open the app. 2. Pods restarting in the middle and not being able to recover. 3. App removing downloaded episodes, seemingly at random. The developer had had months to fix these issues. Look at the reviews. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS TRASH. Podcast Addict is the app you want :-)

    Bought the full version a few years ago when it was an excellent fully functioning application. For the last few months at least, this app freezes at startup, or the audio playing constantly pauses randomly. From other recent reviews, this is a widespread issue with no support from the developer. Unfortunately, it seems this once excellent podcast player is now dead with no support. Find something else.
