    Lets you add podcast feeds, and lets you listen to them, ticks the most important boxes right there. There are a few annoyances, such as some questionable UI design, fiddly playlist management, and no concurrent downloads. Despite this, I've tried a few applications and this is the one that I stuck with so they must be doing something right.

    The software is very good and customisable but there are some niggles. Not being able to play/pause with Bluetooth headset is main one. Sometimes the podcasts won't download and just errors.

    Used for 3 years. Got worse and worse. More and more buggy. Gave up in the end when it was frustrating me so much that it became dangerous to use in the car. Got "Beyondpod" now instead.

    This used to be my first choice app for podcasts , but for a while now if there is anything in my play list and I play something new, it replays the old episode. Have to remove and delete the whole play list to fix. Then re-download the episode I want. Going back to beyondpod until fixed. Also, would like to see lock screen controls added.

    Randomly stops podcasts. I have to go back into app and hit play then it starts back about 5 seconds earlier. I download my podcast I do not stream. And I wont be doing anything else on the phone when this happens.

    I have been using this app (free version) for years, going back to Froyo. I use it to download and play regular tech podcasts. They down load during the day and ready for me to hear on the commute home. They app does a nice job of cleaning up after itself by letting me set thresholds on the number of downloads to keep. It would be 5 stars but somewhere along the line it developed a problem ope

    Works most of the time, but VERY often it can't play certain feeds that it played just fine the day before. The error message, if any, is useless : Cannot create player for [URL] or simply "Exception".

    Wow- finally found this functionality on Android! Works like a charm on my LG Lucid ICS. After more testing I'll be buying the pro version. Lots of other great features too- love the download options and the large playback buttons. Great app!
