Customer Reviews

Awesome. (5 stars)
Has almost every feature that you could possibly hope for, and works great. The only recommendations I have would be to add the ability to arrange the order of your subscriptions manually (drag-and-drop; without having to give it a "priority" number) and the option to turn off autoplay when you select an episode (have user press play manually to start playing/streaming).

Excellent app, excellent support (5 stars)
I looked at all the similar Podcast apps, and this is the best. It makes finding, loading and listening to Podcasts so much easier. And the customer support is par excellence! I love to support such top-notch work.

2'nd review (5 stars)
This app is constantly updated and polished. This is the only podcast app you will ever need. It does everything.
