  • I have used this for many years.

    I love this app. The interface is good, the settings allow enough control over how podcasts are organized and filed to be useful and has no useless bells or whistles. Does what it says.
  • Still waiting for night mode player

    Still waiting for night/dark mode player. I have made this request many times.
  • Best app hands down

    By ajmckeon
    I listen to podcasts everyday and have been since the mid 2000s Downcast is the #1 app I have used to listen. I have tried others and always come back to Downcast.
  • Reliable & Easy to Use

    By The Judy
    I've used several different podcast apps over the years. Downcast continues to perform reliably over several years. The updates are useful, easy to use additions to an app that was already well designed. The low price is an added bonus.
  • The reason I have an iPhone

    By Sigemund
    This is the best podcasting app ever. I’ve tried the others, and even tried leaving iOS before but I can’t leave this app. I always come back to it. Nothing compares.
  • One of the best!

    By kylekane
    I've tried several podcast apps over a couple of years. I keep coming back to Downcast for it's features and ease of use. I've never encountered a bug while using this excellent app. it seems to me Downcast has an easier time of working with non-iTunes based podcasts than any other app I've used. The few things I wish Downcast would add are a dark mode and a grid view.
  • Downcast The Best

    By Dra'
    I’ve searched for the right replacement podcast app and this does the job right. Syncs well, has audio and video, works on all of my devices!
  • Just great

    By MassBirder
    Use it all the time. Works great. Recently introduced it to a friend, who was complaining about her Apple Podcasts App. So I showed her my Downcast app and she immediately switched. Just a very nicely designed app.
  • Best podcast app

    By Myrledarr
    Download podcasts from online. Import audio from iTunes. Rearrange as you like, adjust everything to your liking.
  • So great!

    I gave up on apple’s built-in podcast app after being forced to update to ios11; imagine my surprise to discover that, with DOWNCAST, the ff/rw buttons on my smart watch, now skip 10 seconds instead of jumping all the way to the end or beginning of the track! Only a very slight exaggeration to describe this discovery as LIFECHANGING! Ad time on your podcast? BLIP gone! Oh crap what did that character just whisper on my audiobook (that’s right, import whole audiobooks with this app)? BLIP {repeats exactly what you missed} Best podcast app, bar none. THANK YOU (The “title card” (?) was stuck on one podcast I played a week ago, in the pop-up / widget / Control Center window?!? Restarted my phone, that fixed it)
