App Reviews

  • Chromecast doesn't work

    By rare_doggo
    Bought this app because apple podcasts doesn't support Chromecast. Even though this app does, it's basically useless. Notification controls disappear once you cast. It only plays one episode and stops, doesn't play the next ones you have queued up. It doesn't keep track of where you are in the episode. So if you take a break halfway, it plays from the beginning and doesn't show where you left off. The app itself is great if you're not planning on using the Chromecast feature.
  • Great

    My go to podcast app on all platforms but I noticed my Chromecast option is missing in iOS devices as of late. Glitch?
  • The Best Podcast App

    By Underhillbu
    Easy to use, takes up less storage. I use it on my iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. So much better than the stock podcast app as well as all the others I’ve tried.

  • Best Podcast App

    By TandSj
    Love everything about this app and have been using it for years. One request is to please make the dark mode background for iPhone X pure black rgb:0,0,0. Dark grey actually doesn’t look great on this phone, but pure black is awesome as it blends into the bezel of the phone (see Apples stock tracker app). Thanks!!!
  • Stop Suffering with Subpar Podcast Apps

    By cdharrison
    Look, you could probably stick with Apple’s app if you only listen on a single device. It’s perfectly average. But after trying a ton of different alternatives, I can’t believe I ever settled for less than Pocket Casts. It’s got a great design, discovering & adding new feeds is easy. It’s worth the $3.99. My only regret is I didn’t start using it sooner.
  • Clunky and ugly

    By Weatherglass
    I lasted about a minute before deleting this clunker of an app. Instead of just showing you a list of your show’s episodes, it shows you a short list and makes you click “load more” ad infinitum, giving you another couple with every click, working backwards chronologically. I wanted to listen to episode 1 in a show with over 500 episodes, so the hell with that.
  • Way better than apple podcast app.

    By Briank24708
    Way better than podcast app
  • Lovely Interface and Features

    By Qstaley921
    I recommend Pocket Casts, which is far superior to the dreadful Spotify podcasts experience, and is quite more refined than Apple’s bloated experience. Casts is all an application, especially a podcast application, needs to be. I am curious, however with skepticism, to see how willing the developers are to add even more features; for instance, I’ve always wished for the ability to add personal notes to my podcasts, but I’ve not found an app that can do that yet. Here’s to hoping 😬
  • This is the one!

    By mwade82
    Once i switched to this player, i found i was listening to more of whatever i felt like at that moment, missing fewer episodes, almost never having to stream (vs download), and spending zero time managing storage space
