Really, really needs "write to SD" permission I'm a longtime user, but with KitKat I can't save to external storage and my phone's internal is running out of space! Search feature also needs updating.

Buggy. Needs work. Randomly stops play or switches to a different podcast. Searching to add new podcasts doesn't work, you have to give it thr exactly rss url. I get podcasts with added Acast content yet I've never seen how to access it.

Worked well for a while, but it's getting more problematic. I bailed. I've been using ACast for a few years, and it generally worked well, but there are a couple issues. One, relatively minor, is that playback can suddenly jump back a few minutes while playing a podcast. This is sporadic, and it happened on another player I tried, so I don't think this is uncommon. Much worse, however, is the corruption of the playlist. Sometimes, when I do a " clear and delete played episodes" the playlist drops everything, not just the played podcasts. I don't see an easy way to add all the podcasts back to the playlist, so I end up listening from the feed window. This seems to be happening more. I suspect later versions of Android are causing problems with this App. I've switched to BeyondPod, which is pricey, but I really like the ability to play/pause and other actions while the screen is locked. And, I haven't yet experienced any of these issues.
