I had been looking for a long time trying to get a half decent pod-caster for Android. I trialed about 10 different leading apps. I found that Pocket Casts was leagues ahead of everyone else in design, usability and function.
Clinchers for me was the ease of setting up playlists and managing a feed. Also being able to discover new podcasts via the application was a bonus.
I've been a supporting user of Pocket Casts for many years. The positive reviews are easy to find, and I agree with all of them.
My recent issue with it is not big enough to get me to switch to an alternative; I've tried them all, and none come close to Pocket Casts' usability, simplicity, and user options. However, I have rolled back to version 7, since the latest update (ver. 8) broke the pattern of excellence for me.
Personally, I think they update their UI too much. I'm sure as popular as they are, they are deluged with requests and suggestions. But they need to remember that changes risk alienating their most firm supporters.
Honestly, the first version I ever used, I don't what number that was, was already perfect! The best thing about that one was the first feature to be taken away: when it was playing, and your mobile screen was showing the player, the entire screen surface was reactive as a widget; press anywhere on the right third of it, go forward; anywhere on the left, go back-- safest way to listen while driving in the pre-bluetooth days.
Each subsequent version has gotten more feature-rich, but has also consistently made radical enough UI changes to require an annoying process of re-learning it.
If they could somehow keep adding features or making security patches without changing the face of the app, they would get five stars from me.
There's no other multi-platform podcast player that even comes close.
Their Android app is great, but dont pay for the website access. There are several bugs with the website version they will not fix, so stick with that app.
Not sure what bugs you're referring to but check https://playbeta.pocketcasts.com/web/ to see if they're resolved. It's such a clean and complete web podcast player. A perfect complement to their other platform apps, and so worth the small one-time fee!
