  • Used to be great

    By nikromatt
    I’ve used this app for years and it has done everything I could ask of it. The last year continuous play has been sporadic at best. I ride a bike for transportation & a living. I listen to my podcasts while riding and can’t take my hands off the handlebars or my attention off the traffic around me to to find the next podcast to play. After the 3 months of this I’ve decided to make change in players and leave this Downcast.
  • Great but...

    Needs an update for the new screen size on iPad Pro 2018
  • Too many bugs

    By Mike in DFW
    Used to be a great app, but now often times when skipping ahead, it goes all the way back to the beginning (or nearly so). It also no longer always shows the correct position/time within the podcast. I’m listening to one show here where Downcast is stuck at 1:07, but it’s still playing. I hope the developers are aware of this and are working on a fix.
  • Crashes when connected to WiFi

    By Salaaaaf
    Been using this app for years. All of a sudden now it crashes when connected to WiFi. Running latest iOS. New phone etc. Not sure what’s up. It hopefully a known issue you can fix
  • Ever gonna fix the broken app?

    By Nate662
    Or nah? Apparently nah. Apps been broke almost two months now.
  • I wish the sync worked

    By noldawg86
    I am very happy with this app for managing my podcasts. Also quite happy with its support of video podcasts. It is also nice to see that they have a version for the Mac. Unfortunately, despite endless hours of troubleshooting over many different versions, I have given up any hope that sync over iCloud will ever work properly. While they blame this on Apple, I have yet to see any other application that uses iCloud for sync struggle as much as downcast does. This severely hinders my otherwise complete satisfaction with this app.
  • Best Podcast App I’ve Ever Used

    By KevinPostlewaite
    I constantly play podcasts in my car and Downcast is the best app that I’ve ever used, the only podcast app I’ve ever tried that gets everything right and I’ve tried A LOT of different apps on iOS and Android, including a number of different paid apps. Downcast is highly customizable and is easy and intuitive to use, especially with lots of subscriptions.
  • Please Fix!

    By frances eats toast
    This went from the best app to the worst. It closes prematurely and you have to re-open the app each time you open your phone instead of picking up where it left off. Recently, it has started to freeze up randomly and won’t work after several tries of closing and reopening the app. Please fix it!
  • Better than most others

    By GregoryZero
    in desperate need of a way to mark podcasts as read aside from individually or all episodes in the feed. not looking forward to individually marking about 200 episodes in a 500 episode feed just so I know which ones I have not heard.
  • App was great until it started crashing every time I start it up...

    By sdinma
    It’s been doing the following for a few days now: the app opens fine, but if I try refreshing my podcasts, playing an episode, or merely switching between screens, it immediately crashes.
