I love it.

This is just what Apple should have provided.

Darwinated's Review of Podcruncher Podcast Player

UPDATE: I still find this app to be more convenient than Apple’s native podcast player, mostly because of its useful customizable features that can be applied to all podcasts or to specific ones. I listen to news shows and like that I can speed all of them up automatically. Also, the filter features make it simple to sort and select what I want to download. My wishlist for options was added, except for videos only playing in landscape mode. But, after using this app daily for years, the only change that I’d like is to have the opening screen be the downloaded podcasts. I rarely add new podcasts, so it doesn’t make sense to open up on the subscriptions page every time. All in all, this is the app that Apple SHOULD HAVE written. ORIGINAL REVIEW: I came looking for a podcast app only after Apple destroyed its own with horrible implementation of iCloud. This app has common sense defaults, plus its customizable functions give you easy, one-screen options. I'm pleased with most of its features. Some things to improve, 1. Inability to mark multiple podcasts played or to eliminate from the download list. 2. Background playing sometimes has glitches where podcasts turn off suddenly. 3. Video casts can only be seen in landscape mode.

Decent player, delete functionality is terrible

The player is alright, does what it needs to do for the most part. One thing I don’t like is its “delete” functionality. If you go to delete an episode from a playlist, the default behavior is to actually delete the episode, so that it won’t show up on your phone ever again! I have no idea why this functionality even exists, let alone why it’s the default. When you delete something from a playlist, what you want is to take it off the playlist. Why would you want to delete it permanently? Makes no sense. And the worst part is if you delete an episode, the only way to get it back is to unsubscribe from the podcast then resubscribe. What’s funny is this misfeature got even worse recently. When deleting an episode, it used to ask you “are you sure?” Now it gives you the option to suppress that dialog. I made the mistake of choosing that option. The problem is, there’s no way to reset the option and get the dialog back. I even tried “reset all settings” and that didn’t work. So yeah, they need to fix this.

It is easy to use.

I struggled with Apple’s podcast app and finally gave up. This app is easy to use. Very easy to delete a download after you listened.

Many basic features missing

The lack of some basic features such as being able to search on keyword within a Target podcast makes it clumsy to use. . Some podcasts have 200 or even 400 episodes so it’s frustrating to try to find a particular episode by keyword. Another feature missing: font size; it is hard to read the text descriptions

Cannot rate high enough!

It’s how I practice self-care, stay abreast of what’s going on in my field, listen to my friend’s projects, and more. It’s intuitive, customizable, and everything you could ever want in a Podcast app. Best there is!

Exactly what I was looking for

I was getting really frustrated with all of the Podcast apps out there that were simply too clumsy to use and too complicated to deal with. I wanted something simple and straightforward but yet reliable. So glad that I found a PodCruncher! It is deceivingly simple and yet very powerful. Don’t let easy fool you though, it has a lot of features but doesn’t allow them to complicate things. If you’re looking for a podcast player to, you know, play Podcasts then this is the one for you. It won’t do your laundry or take the garbage out but it will make listening and finding podcasts extremely easy.

The best

Most reliable podcast app on the market. This year will be 5 years of usage and it’s been rock solid since day one. Thank you

Better than the Apple app

Way easier to use than the Apple podcast app. The interface may not be flashy, but it gets the job done. Review by a daily podcast listener.
