I love this app except skipping issue
emcee825 on 2023-01-31
I love this app. I’ve been using it every day, multiple hours a day, for about 4 (?) years. It has a great user interface and has all the features I want. I haven’t had too many issues with it and have recommended this app to everyone. BUT. There is a skipping issue that has started to make this experience frustrating. I’ve tried to see if it’s always on the same spot in specific episodes, and it is, and I can’t figure out how to troubleshoot it. I know it’s not the podcast episode itself because it doesn’t happen on other platforms. Please please please figure this issue out. I will continue to use this app for as long as I can tolerate this issue but man, it’s really killing my vibe. (Skipping happened while I was writing this! 😩)
Absolutely STUNNING Podcast App!
WilliamC on 2023-01-31
I've been using PocketCasts since 2013 and am continually AMAZED at how well-designed and useful this app is for managing and thoroughly Enjoying the podcast experience. It is truly one of the great mobile apps, and shows just how powerful good user-centered design and engineering can be. Podcasts have become a totally essential category of media for knowledge and entertainment, but being able to manage and utilize them well is absolutely critical to getting their full benefit, so having the right app makes a HUGE difference. And after trying many others, I can say hands-down that PocketCasts is THE right app!! It's night and day better and will take your podcast listening to a whole new level.
Best UI but buggiest playback
cbnnyc on 2023-01-31
I love this app. Especially when they added folders. I spent a lot of time testing the others and none are as good. Except: you can’t use this app for search. I usually go to Apple Podcasts to discover new shows then add them to PC And most critically: the skipping. It’s so annoying and been happening since day one. I had been living with it, but now that you’re hiking the price up, I have to bounce. (Also seems to be getting worse lately) I contacted support and they want me to send a list of all the times it happens. But it happens all. the. time. I see other people have mentioned this too. Why isnt there a solution? I’ll miss the good times we’ve had 🥲 Goodbye PocketCasts.
Great app with one fatal flow
Will_in_DC on 2023-01-31
This is podcast perfection, the best sweet spot between simplicity, cost and features. The level of control and customization is great, and I like that you can apply them to individual podcast series rather than being forced to only apply them globally or to a specific episode. This would’ve been 5/5 but beware if a very annoying feature—the queue autoplays 🙁. Sometimes you just want to lineup things to listen to or you want to easily return to items you were listening too (good idea) but sometimes after a podcast you are either done or you want to pick something else in the queue. Dear pocket casts any way you can allow the listener to turn the auto-play on/off? 🙏🏿
Leaving after 168 days and 20 hours of total listening
Bill Daley for Mayor on 2023-01-31
Pocket Casts was the app that made me fall in love with podcasts but after 7 years the constant issues with podcasts skipping forward and causing podcasts to end early is getting too much to deal with when there are so many options. I have had this issue for years but it’s gotten noticeably worse. I’m not sure if this is due to some conflict with how advertising is added post production or what but it is ruining the experience. I would love to hear from a developer because this app has been a big part of my life and I will be sad to walk away. Thanks :(
Used and Loved This App for Years, but...
%#@qwertK on 2023-01-31
I can't tell you how long I've used this app for my podcast listening, but it's been close to 10 years if not more. It's always been easy to use, and I love the ease of creating playlists. However, since getting an iPhone 13 just about a year ago, I'm finding that podcasts are skipping and repeating sections as long as 30 seconds or more. This seems to happen primarily with The Office Ladies podcast, but it's happened with just about every one I listen to. Is this my phone? The app? What's going on? This never happened on my Androids.
Terrible Search
OldHouse9999 on 2023-01-31
If you don't search for the exact title of a podcast it's impossible to find it. Searching for the Keller & Kess podcast, if you search for "keller kess" the podcast is 11th in the list despite the being almost the exact name. Can't use "and" instead of "&". Miss a word in between 2 words in a title and you guessed it.. won't show up in search results. Not worth the headaches to find podcasts. Search is awful. Can't search by people either. Updates are for bells and whistles. FIX THE SEARCH!
Not great: Numerous playback issues
jd2020 on 2023-01-31
Overall good, but some wonkiness. Often playback won’t resume through headphones with Siri. Recently downloads won’t start on Wi-Fi (via adding to playlist or even manual d/l, but works after force quit). Frequently stops playing in the middle of podcast or when starting next podcast in up next, especially when on BT or Airplay. Numerous support cases resulted in nothing more than “oh isn’t that fixed in our latest release?” Rather surprising that the main function of this app is so buggy.
Great podcast app overall
åñöń on 2023-01-31
Love the app, it’s no nonsense just podcasts with fun themes and I can find pretty much anything on here. Leaving 4 stars because there’s a bug that when I rewind or skip ahead too much the app skips extra and then makes up for it by skipping back to where it should be like 10 minutes down the line, so I miss chunks (like 30 seconds) of episodes sometimes.
Corrupted downloads
Drewjames on 2023-01-31
Not sure what’s causing it but lots of corrupted audio files on this app. Cuts podcasts short and skips backwards. Some episodes just pause without finishing and app won’t skip to next podcast in queue. Developers have failed to address this issue for several version of the app.
