    Best app for podcasts I have used. Intuitive and versatile.
  • American Tragedy

    It’s so poignant that the graphic for Pocket Casts has American Tragedy. That’s exactly what this is. It’s really the most unbelievable thing I’ve ever seen, taking a world class app and then destroying it. Why? Is this really NPR calling the shots? It has to be true. The people who created this great app didn’t suddenly lose their minds and then become smug, arrogant and unresponsive over night. They have to be marching to NPR’s tune. Tragedy....
  • Don’t believe the rating

    This is NOT a 4 Star App! Since they launched version 7 a few months ago... - Star rating dropped from 4.8 to 3.2 - 70% of the reviews are negative - There were thousands of reviews Now, I see there are less than 100 reviews and a 3.7 rating? I wish the real world worked that way, where we could start over and have the minions troll our way to a 4 star rating. NPR & Pocketcast...not only did you ruin a great app with Version 7...but when the backlash got to bad, you gamed the system to start over and are lying to consumers about what the true rating is. Shame on you. If these are your values, you don’t deserve people’s money.
  • Constant Crashing

    The most recent updates cause the app to crash almost everytime you leave the app and then come back to it. Version 7.1 had none of these issues.
  • Used to be great.

    Used to be my default podcast app for many years until they updated it recently and essentially ruined what made it simple and easy to use. Switched to Apple Podcasts.
  • Not as bad as reviews say

    Actually really good, I really like the layout and design of the app. The player is really good, the app has great customization options, I really like the way you can organize things with the filters and I like how stable the app is. The old version must have been the best app in the world because this is pretty good. Please fix episode artwork though
  • I used to love...

    This app was great until a Feb 2019 update. Podcasts infrequently and randomly rewinding, and then crash the app. Interface has become too much. Too many configuration options in too many places with too many unintuitive choices.
  • Not liking the update

    By Mr Korman
    I moved to iOS from Android, and this version of the app is ridiculously difficult to work with, in my opinion. I wish there was a way to toggle between the old and new versions, because I really liked the old version and found it perfect for what I was personally looking for in a podcast app.
  • The redesign was so bad that they seem to have relisted the app
