Reviews From google play store

Generally, I love the features of the the app. Specifically, the ability to set the exact speed at which I want to play the podcast. My biggest con and the one that lead me to rate it at three stars: You cannot manually add an RSS subscription podcast. I'd like to listen to the podcasts I have paid a subscription to on google podcasts app, but there is no functionality to support it. As someone who switched from Apple to Android, this is honestly the biggest feature that I'm missing out on.


App is good for being free. No ads, possible to download episodes. Once or twice, I have been randomly unsubscribed from a few of my podcasts or all of the episodes have been marked as unlistened after I had slogged through 200 episodes of backlog. In an instance like this, the ability to mass 'mark as played' would be helpful. I have a lot of free time though, so it wasnt that bad for me.


It plays podcasts as you might expect. It's missing an auto download (on wifi) option which is a bit of a deal breaker for me. It's also missing playlists, and has a terrible layout in regards to the back button. edit:(The back button is there, but cleverly disguised as a logo) On a brighter note, it has great potential and keeps getting better.


I love the interface. My biggest complaints are based on some lack of functionality. The ability to rate and comment on a podcast and/or a particular episode is a big deal to small and/or new podcasts, so it would be appreciated. Also, as others have said, creating playlists is a big deal when you don't have the ability to interface directly with your phone (driving, working out, etc.).


I had been using another app whose name is similar to 'zipper' for a few years. When I found this app, it was intuitive to use and it organized easily what I had been listening to yet hadn't finished and what was new on my playlist. I particularly like how I can download the content directly to my device; although I suspect that this particular service won't be available far into the future. I have since stopped using zipper.


I would love to use this app, but for a major missing feature! I still do not have the "automatic episode download over WIFI" ability with my version of the app. I have read some people have this feature in the version they have...but I do not! (perhaps there is s small, select group of "new feature testers" out there?!) In the mean time I continue to use castbox which syncs with a web version so I can continue to listen where I left off when I get into work! for this reason I consider it unusable in its current state, so can only give it 2*


This is one of the most user friendly app to use. Further it occupies very little storage, so is helpful in devices which have less than 32GB of storage. However there are some glaring problems. First of all the Subscribe button does not work. Pressing it does nothing. Secondly there is no way to add a Podcast via RSS feed. This is essential as the app does not locate all the Podcasts. I would have given it 5 stars had it not been for the above 2 points


The most user friendly app for now. I like the UI and the way podcasts are listed. But, you're missing some features like: searching bar for episodes, segmentation for each episode to be easy to find what I want, comments section for users to discuss with others or with authors. Ratings for podcasts to introduce new podcasts to others rather than listening to famous ones, and finally bookmarks. I appreciate your efforts and I'm waiting for your next update.


Amazingly simple and really small size, really simple to search your channel and listen to it. Its also easy to subscribe to the channels, although I'd love for there to be an option for choosing the quality of audio that I can listen to, but that's a minor nitty-gritty. Anyways that's all from my side and hope someone finds this review helpful.


Update 01/27/2020: I have various podcasts that will abruptly stop and say unable to play. And when I select play, it takes me to the beginning of the podcast. Down to one star because I didn't have this issue on Apple Podcast or Spotify. Update: they fixed it and now I'm happy. 5 stars. -- Once they fix the issue with the player being stuck in my notifications unless i force quit Google in the settings, I'll give it 5 stars. until that annoyance is resolved, I'll stay at 2
