    I am a recent convert from iOS downcast. This app is the best I've found on android. However I still miss some features. I'd like to see: keep N unplayed episodes in cleanup, grouping podcasts with no unplayed episodes, ff via gesture, 2nd touch while playing video remove on screen elements shown by 1st touch.
