iOS App Reviews

  • Error downloading episode

    By solorca
    I bought this app specifically to listen to a podcast that requires a password. I can get the episode to show up, the password is accepted, and the stream is up and live...but I receive this error. Waste of 2.99
  • Manage My Podcast World

    UPDATE: Have new battery in iPhone and upgraded my Downcast app. Battery life seems better now. Had temporarily switched to the native podcast app and am so glad to be back to Downcast. OLD: Latest version drains the battery on my iPhone 6 iOS 11.2.5 EXTREMELY FAST. Have reverted to Apple podcast app until fix.
  • Great app

    By Maxpower99
    I've been using Downcast for years and enjoyed it. I would've given this version 5 stars but I'm not a fan of the Actions menu stealing screen real estate from the 2 minute skip button. Update: I need to mention Downcast has great support. I saw an issue in the app and from the app submitted a bug to the dev. I got a prompt response which shows they care about their product. Love it.
  • Syncing deletes ALL podcasts

    By StefanAge
    I ignored the warnings I saw several months ago about syncing deleting episodes because I though it would be fixed soon. But it it still happening. Lost every single recent podcast that I had downloaded and subscribed to this morning. All I did was open the desktop application. Super frustrating.
  • Better

    Update: March 2018 Less buggy. But seems to drain battery faster than before. Still the best podcast app. ———————— Update: Dec 15 2015 This update STILL does not address the squished controls. Way too easy to accidentally hit return to beginning or end buttons when trying to scrub. And when a podcast finishes, it won't replay from the beginning and often crashes. I've had to delete this version and revert to the old (great) interface by installing a earlier version from this summer (which I had backed up luckily). --------- November 2015 Review: It just seems that each additional update makes the program more and more buggy (crashes at end of podcasts and more). Also the user interface now has controls smooshed together. I have recently tested two alternatives (RSS Radio and Overcast). Overcast doesn't have the all features that Downcast provides. But, RSS Radio does, AND it has the ability (like Overcast's Smartspeed) to remove dead airspace for a great listening experience. If Downcast would revert back to its previous interface and add smart speed, I'd return. But for now, it's bye bye.
  • Ultimate control and practically perfect

    By Ceager256
    Intuitive, easy, and the best customization options around. I’ve used Downcast every day for years. The synching, audio quality, and performance are great. I’ve not had any problems with crashing. My only requests: 1) night mode, especially on the iPad where the player is only 20% of the screen. If you’re in the dark, the other 80% is a bit much. 2) make the time jump text and targets larger.
  • Years of use and regularly updated

    By Mk DareMo
    Just a quick thx to the devs, I’ve also left a tip. I paid a few years ago and you’re still updating regularly and it’s still my favorite podcast app I keep coming back to. Keep up the great work.
  • Have used this for many years BUT

    By Boulder Chuck
    The one thing I can’t find or the app doesn’t do is allow me to rate a podcast. Podcasts that I like and support are always asking to rate then using my podcast app. I would have emailed support but I can’t find that either.
  • Delays when playing a podcast

    By Rafinesque
    Why does it say “Preparing...” or pause for 30 seconds before being able to play a podcast that has already been downloaded?
  • Excellent podcast player

    By R Broom
    Does exactly what it says on the tin. Especially handy is variable speed playback feature. You can also stream podcasts live instead of downloading them. This App supports video podcasts as well. Leave a $ tip through an in-app purchase if you're a long time user.
