User reviews of DoggCatcher Podcast Player
I have just migrated over from Listen and I have to say that I am really impressed with this app. As others have said, it is more complicated to use but it is very powerful and flexible. I have no regrets.

Awesome podcast player. Searched for them all and only this one worked best.

Excellent Podcatcher. A bit pricy at full Price but I especially love the fact, that I can set Rules for when to Download Podcasts. Now I don't have to check them for updates with an external prog, but my Phone grabs them whenever it is connected to WiFi and Power.

Disappointed with this app. It's quite complicated and tough to figure out if something that went wrong was a configuration issue ("your fault") or the app or Android itself. Tons of little buttons and features. Tiny font. Tough to use and so quirky that I ended up switching back to Google Listen(!) as awful as that is.

Great! Has almost everything I need. Much better than iTunes Easy to set up podcasts, easy to listen with lots of features and ease of use. A few more things I think would improve my experience: 1.) less duplicate feeds when looking for items to subscribe to, 2.) sleep feature is nice, but what about an alarm? 3.) Would like a way to flag a podcast as keep forever... i.e. save on iTunes. 4.) Ability to sort podcasts by oldest first. Currently everything is sorted newest first. // Keep up the good work!!!
