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.

Best podcast app I've found Works as it should, easy controls, pretty good app design. Well worth the price. Updated Jan 2015 from 4 to 5 stars; got Lollipop and suddenly soft controls and headphone buttons work.

Best full featured podcast player I've used DoggCatcher for years and it has been a robust player that is regularly updated.

It used to be good Well.. I did type a long review and play store just disregarded it. Annoying. A quick brief: on android5 this app does not work, as promised. Crashes a lot, forgets play queue and placeholders, does not play on headset connect.

Improved Older version used to crash my phone, but recent updates have fixed that.
