Pretty good app, makes listening to podcasts on my phone much easier. However it has some annoying bugs, e.g. it fails to delete the media file after listening to it if there no more to listen to. And after new files get downloaded, app starts to play that again. Also, when (rarely) download fails for some file, figuring out how to redownload that is undescribable.

When streaming podcasts it randomly picks other shows to tune into every ten minutes. Get onecast instead. Its free and does what it says it should do

Best podcast app in the market. Well worth the price. Would like to be able to create and save playlists more easily.
