This app does not only send notifications to hey phone until I actually open the app, but it does not download the podcasts until the app is opened.

Apple's Worst App (2.1.2)
7/27/2014 4:37:00 PM 1/5 By TimmyBld
Crashes a lot!

Strive for mediocrity... (2.1.2)
7/27/2014 4:32:00 PM 4/5 By Atrnm
The app takes a bit to adjust the episodes to my liking. Needs to have a feature to set all the settings for the podcasts at one time. I listen to ˜ 45 different podcasts while traveling. App does not always update the downloads when they are availible. Apple can do much more with this app, but choose not to apparently.

Once again weirdness from the app (2.1.2)
7/27/2014 1:13:00 PM 1/5 By PilotDoug
I have a limited cellular data plan so I never want the app to download via cellular. The primary reason is apparent against today because I have it set to most recent two episodes for every podcast but this morning it appears to be downloading every single episode of all of my podcasts. My other number one complaint is that every single time I use the app a popup appears reminding me that cellular downloads are off and I have to ack it before I can do anything. I am exceptionally disappointed with this app and looking for a better one now. I would not recommend this app.

Garbage (2.1.2)
7/27/2014 5:47:00 AM 1/5 By Improvisar
Update 5/17/14: Thanks a pant-load. Thanks to the update it added the most recent episode not on the device as unplayed for each podcast. I'm hoping if I re-sync with iTunes it syncs the "played" status from iTunes, rather than the update-garbled data from the device. Apple, please let 3rd parties access synced podcasts and data... All this time since you forced us out of Music, and you still keep screwing it up. Update: Will not reliably download podcasts, and what, now no updates unless we update to iOS 7? I've had an iPhone since the 3G, but every time I take a 6-12 month old iPhone and update a full version number, it almost ruins the phone... New version optimized for new phone, with little if any care given performance to prior models that are not only still in service, but still being sold. iOS 3 killed performance on my 3G, iOS 5 borked the camera on my 4 (it can take 30 seconds or more from shutter button click to actually taking the pic). SUPPORT YOUR HARDWARE! You product is great when it's brand new... Crap in 6-12 month when you're only focused on the new pretty. Please please please fix this crap for us, or let third parties access the iTunes sync data. The team working on this app needs to be replaced... It's been garbage since it started. It's had some improvements, but seriously, you still can't download an mp3 reliably??? If I thought it would be a good product if the bugs were worked out, I might say, "good Alpha release", but since when does Apple ship Alpha's? No more making fun of Google for always being in Beta. I think the only thing I actually like vs Music is the skip-ahead button... Too bad the response of the buttons is hit or miss. Would it perhaps improve response if you turned off the ridiculous reel-to-reel animation? I'll take that option, please. Funny how you changed the speed indicator to a turtle and a rabbit. I was hoping for a little more control, but at least it's not lying to me anymore ("2x" in Music is only 1.5x). I wish someone important at Apple liked Podcasts... If someone who "got it" saw something like this released to customers, heads would roll. Update 7/26/14: Still garbage. Current worst bug: more than half the time... Perhaps 65-75% of the time I finish listening to a podcast, as in I listen to the endpoint, and playback stops on it's own, within a minute or two the "played" podcast will revert to partially played, with a minute remaining. I doubt anyone at Apple is paying attention to this... Or heads would roll over the un-Apple quality displayed in this crap, but just in case, I'm usually listening at 2x, if that helps debugging. I'd still prefer you allow third parties access to the iTunes sync, and kill this crap so we can move on... I have more faith that Apple can get really good at cloud services than I am that this app will ever be good enough for a second star.

New low (2.1.2)

It doesn't even work . Is there a zero star to choose?

I don't understand the negative reviews (2.1.2)
7/26/2014 10:25:00 PM 5/5 By Frank D. Tank
This app has worked flawlessly for me. I have about 6 different podcasts I listen to frequently and this app downloads them and then plays the new audio every time. I have never had a problem. Not sure what everyone else is dealing with but download this app if you want to listen to podcasts.

Caused lost space -needed to restore (2.1.2)
7/26/2014 9:51:00 PM 1/5 By Morac
Twice when using this app on different iOS devices (iPad 2 and iPhone 5S), deleting a podcast while podcasts were downloading caused "disk" space to go missing. I needed to restore both times to get the space back. The interface of the app is fine and I like the way it syncs, but I'll never use it again because of the chance of needing to restore after using it. I dread this becoming a built in app in iOS 8 because of that.

Other people are crazy. (2.1.2)

This app works fine for me, absolutely no problems.
