  • Constantly crashing

    By SAB133
    Latest update is a disaster. It crashes every 15-30 seconds. Completely useless now.
  • Best podcast app out there!

    By LittlePixels
    This is, hands down, my favorite and most-used app. It has all the bells and whistles you'd expect. Variable speed, great video podcast support, playlists, iCloud syncing, a great Apple Watch app (one of the best I've seen), picture-in-picture, and more. I've been using Downcast for almost eight years, and I'm continually impressed at the developer's responsiveness and the frequency of updates.
  • Crashes after update

    By FallenAdversary
    This was my preferred podcast application as I did not like the original Apple podcast application. I’ve used this app for over five years since I began listening to podcasts and it has served me well each and every day of those five work years. Except for this most recent update I have had no problems but after this update my app will not work for more than 30 seconds to a minute and then crash completely. I have emailed the developers and have received no response I simply want the app to be fixed and do not wish to use any other product. Please see to this issue.
  • Downcast is the best!

    By Trey34
    In my humble opinion this is the best podcast machine I’ve used. Way better than Apple’s. The one that comes with iPhone. Downcast has never let down. Always downloads on time. I definitely think the $1.99 was worth it. I definitely recommend Downcast, if you listens to podcasts all day like I do, being a trucker. It’s worth every penny.
  • Love but.....

    By Beer Can Chicken
    I’ve been using for years but why has it been crashing lately? Anyone else? And minus 1 star for also charging for the Mac app
  • good full featured app

    By marc.w.cardwell
    i listen to a lot of podcasts, 25 or so. this app rocks for its attention to detail: you can specify how often a feed updates, how many seconds it’ll skip before playing at the beginning, what to do with played episodes, etc. i take issue with some UI decisions, but i’ve gotten used to them. it used to crash on my 5s, but now on my 7+, it is better. the developer is responsive to concerns, mostly.
  • Buggy

    By Doug526
    started listening to one podcast , it displayed on screen, but what i was hearing did not match what was being displayed, it was playing a different podcast i listened to yesterday! i am not enjoying this app with these bugs.
  • Refresh paused in background

    By DCNYer
    Still my most used app and I like the added listening speed options. Prior to the recent update, I could refresh to check for new episodes and the app would continue to scroll through the podcasts to check for new episodes in the background when I navigated away from the app. Now, it appears that the refresh pauses when in background. Also, the “Refreshed ___ ago” doesn’t indicate the most recent refresh, but only reflects the previous complete refresh that occurred when I left the app open.
  • My Go-To Podcast App For Years

    By Waldo1776
    Downcast is occasionally buggy, but feature rich.
  • Finding The SEARCH feature is often next to impossible.

    By SocialMediaTom
    Find search is a game in itself. The one feature people look for first. Worst podcast tool ever.
