Got to admit I was a strong BeyondPod user but just for interest tried Pocket Cast. Unlikely ill be moving back. Nice UI, reliable, and fun to use.

I gave up using doggcatcher for this. devs are very responsive. Ui is top notch. Latest update fixed the crashes.

This app is brilliant but I hate the new icon.

but keeps failing at downloading podcasts, so have to retry a couple of times. Fix for 5*!

I have for sometime been searching for the perfect podcast app without finding one. I even considered learning to code just to create a podcast app that suited my needs. Now I don't have to since Pocket Casts would be the app I would create. Five stars simply because there isn't one thing I would change.
