    NPC and BBC just draws a blank however, despite having many shows by default on the menu system.

    Easily the best choice for public radio. Destroys the NPR app simply by working. So many choices and developer is exceptionally responsive and positively attentive.

    Good GUI, focused, well maintained. I only use it for podcasts.

    The app has worked fine for me. However, the podcasts are showing up on my music player app, which is not deleting them when this app does. My storage is full, phone is slow, and I'm going to have to manually delete the podcasts. Yuk.
