  • Must have for power listeners

    By bluemeanieface
    If you have more podcasts in your queue than you could ever possibly listen to, get this app. Lots of tricks to maximize listening time like eliminating silences, speed up playback. Very easy interface. Syncs playback between devices. Share audio without recipient needing to have a player of any type. The best.
  • Great app for podcast, 1 complaint

    By amiller57
    My favorite podcast app. Definitely way better than apples podcast. My only gripe is that I really wish you could listen to a podcast episode that you are not subscribed to so that you could see if it is a series you would want to get into.
  • Crashes upon connecting to Bluetooth

    It happens about 1/3 to 1/2 of the time.
  • This is the one

    By GIJaneAusten
    I’ve tried plenty of other podcast apps, and while I’ve enjoyed a couple of them, they pale in comparison to Pocket Casts. The others were always lacking one or two features that I needed/wanted. This app has everything I’ve been looking for — grid layout for podcasts, custom skip times, really customizable settings, and an extensive, up-to-date library to find new or old shows. I hardly ever shell out money on apps. ***This one is worth the $*** I’m very happy with this purchase and def recommend this one over the others I’ve tried.
  • Wonderful ✨

    Could use a true dark mode anf maybe some additional customization. Other than that, it is fundamentally the best podcast app for me. The almost seamless sync between devices is huge. 🖤
  • Can’t sync anymore

    By Modous
    I switch between iPad and iPhone regularly. It used to sync fine, but now it is not. I am guessing it has to do with their new subscription platform on computers. On reddit people have complained that they can’t sync anymore, and it seems like the makers of this app no longer care. I am currently looking for another podcast app to use
  • Predatory pricing for multiple platforms

    By holisticism
    I was excited to have the option to finally have a podcast app that syncs across all my different devices (iOS, Android, Windows, Browser). However, what was not made clear until I had purchased the app on my iPhone was that in order to use the app across the different devices I will have to PURCHASE it each time. So yes, $3.99 is reasonable for a one time download, but it’s $9.99 for web access, and another $3.99 for Android. I imagine the Mac OS will be another $9.99. This is blatantly false advertising because their main page that allows access to very little information says “If you like what you see, we’ll ask for you for $9. Just once.” They should really clarify that. I’ll be requesting a refund through the Apple store.
  • Works well enough
