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. So happy my old standby player from 2010 still around and upgrading on the regular. What’s more, they’ve embraced the Apple Watch side of things which makes listening on the go even better. The best.

Annoyingly Perfect

I like to change my podcast app every once and a while to see how the competition is doing, but every time I come back to Pocket Casts. The combo of a great interface, night mode, solid playback options, account sync, and overall amazing app stability/no crashes make this a superior podcast app.

Pretty great, but playback issues

Since iOS 11 playback in control center is unreliable. When paused, rewind/FFW controls don’t update shown position/time, but pressing play resumes at correct place. Playback on BT seems to drop, while music doesn’t. No improvement under iOS 12 beta and Official release. Considering going back to Overcast even though I like how PC is designed.

No Auto Download Because No Mass Delete

It does what Podcast apps do. Without good management features there isn’t much difference. With this one, you can’t swipe to delete nor select multiples and delete files from your device. You have to click multiple screens to get to delete a file. It’s retarded.

I’ve tried them all, finally found the best!

Raylon's Review of Pocket Casts

Reviewed on 9/27/18 4:51 PM

I’ve tried all the podcast apps. The Apple one used to be okay, but turned to garbage. Other apps are just stupid with unnecessary stuff that I don’t care about. This is a simple no frills podcast app that allows me to easily and simply track what I have listened to and what I need to listen to. Awesome lists you can filter a ton of ways with lots of other customization options. And no bloat. The only thing I can’t figure out how to do is clear the downloads list. Once stuff is downloaded I thought I could swipe to get rid of them but I ended up marking some shows as played instead. That’s my only complaint!

BEST podcast ap EVER

I love pocketcast. I go back to it again and again. The grid setup is the best. It’s reliable, user friendly and intuitive. I have no idea why everyone doesn’t use it.

No subscription like Overcast

StarryLights's Review of Pocket Casts

Reviewed on 9/25/18 4:59 PM

For the last year Pocket Casts has fallen behind Overcast. They haven’t updated or improved the UI. Most of all, they need to add volume control to their WatchOS 5 app. I used to love this app, but it’s running slower and slower lately and the Devs aren’t very responsive.

Lagging behind the competition

Reviewed on 9/23/18 2:30 AM

I’ve been a pocketcasts user for years but have been forced to switch to Overcast. Overcast is constantly adding new features. What pushed me over to the other side was the lack of offline downloads/playback on watchOS 5. Both Overcast and Apple’s stock podcast app support this already. I love the pocketcasts UI and organization and would love to keep using it but offline playback is a must with watchOS5 in 2018.

Great app - CarPlay spotty in iOS 12

I love the app, but I often get a blank screen with no selectable podcasts in CarPlay running iOS 12 on a 2017 Audi A4.
