    I could really like doggcatcher - it does what I want, which is auto download new episodes automatically without ms having to do anything. However it is always showing a useless notification on the lock screen, which is NOT a play control. So I'm going to go find another app that doesn't spam the lock screen. This has also apparently been a problem for a while.

    Only negative is that I have to spend a half hour restoring my settings each time a new build comes out. Otherwise, love it. Greatest app of all time for layout, functionality, very well organized.

    can't even import an .opml, although the interface feels a little faster than many of the dozens of pocatchers I've used over the years I would save my money until they have basic features

    Been using DC for a long time. It is a 5 stars product, but since a couple of weeks the app stops whenever I switch to another app... I'm waiting for the fix.

    Easily the best podcatching client for Android. Easy to use and plenty of features.

    Great features, audio manipulation tools, Chromecast playback, etc. Every once in a while the feed retrieval gets a bit wonky for undetermined reasons. I've been running this since Android 2.2 on 4+ devices, and I have not yet found another app with all of the features Doggcatcher offers.Always reliable. If you need a work-horse of a podcasting app, this is the one.
