App Reviews

  • Tragic update

    By tom5304
    The Overcast developers must think we’ve forgotten how they destroyed this app, because they’ve returned to writing snarky, unfunny release notes. Maybe they should spend less time writing cute update notes, and focus more on not ruining a once-great app. Too late for many of us, though. Pocket Casts is a classic example of developers ruining an app in the name of progress, and they keep doubling down on their failure.
  • Awesome

    By ElijahMay29
    Really enjoy this app & great app UI but for some reason when not in use for days it’s draining my battery horribly.
  • Was the best

    By Mannny85
    V7 ruined it
  • Has every feature other apps lack!

    By CAcationu2
    Periodically, I go through my apps and look for alternatives or clean stuff up that I don’t use. Pocket Casts has survived culling for YEARS. Every time I use a different podcast app I’m surprised at the comparative lack of features. Every single one of those other, higher-rated, super popular apps misses some key component for me like inability to mark an episode played or archive, no custom speed effects per podcast, or lack of control for download, subscription, or auto playlist. This even has more swipe options in the episode list. The long press to “Play All From Here” or “Archive All From Here” is brilliant. Pocket Casts utilizes everything it can as a mobile app. I want for nothing with this app and I wish more people knew it!
  • Ruined

    By Chimy28
    They totally ruined so many things, and it used to be the very best. If you came here looking for a great podcast app because you heard about Pocket Casts, look elsewhere. Version 7 is a total teardown. The Pocket Casts your friends have been telling you about, no longer exists and never will again.
  • Force Reset

    By daltontini
    Any audio from another app that interrupts Pockets Cast causes you to be unable to resume your podcast without forcefully resetting the app. Tapping the pause/play button does nothing, the app becomes unresponsive. The newest update did not fix this issue.
  • Gotta be kidding

    By jjiceman92
    I’ve had this app for 4 years and loved it till some stupid updates have slowly ruined it to the point of unusable. Not only that but I decided to re install it incase it had been an issue with my phone and all my supposedly saved data was gone once I logged back in. I’m really mad about all of this. Get it together.
  • The best

    By Sqrt7
    This used to be my favorite app. However, it seems to have deteriorated. It no longer supports password protected podcasts. How do they claim to be the most powerful and lack such a key feature?
  • Splendid app!

    By obscurecountryfolk
    I enjoy this app greatly; it's likely the best podcast app I've used. With the latest update however, I encounter a slight issue. If I am playing an episode with the sleep timer set to 'end of episode', then when it gets to the end the player stops (as it should) but it keeps the previous episode in the playing position (with a 0:00 left for time). I wish it would instead move to the next show in the queue, pause, and mark the previous episode as played. As for a feature request, I wish there were a way to create a filter that only shows trailers (like when a podcast supports the categorizing as a trailer). Otherwise, this is a magnificent app!
  • Best Podcast App. Period.

    Pocketcast excels with the little details. I’ve used several others and find Pocketcast puts great excels in its care for usability, aesthetics and little deliverers. You can theme it dark or light. Wonderful little interactions and animations. Streaming data on your personal listening metrics. Smooth and easy listening and speed control. Great discovery view. Keep up the good work, team!
