Too little, too late. Don't buy! This company had our money for an app that didn't work for a year and finally put out an update. I'd already replaced it with Pocket Casts which always works great. This one however would not retain settings crashed often and was Beta at best. Many of us payed to be beta testers. Great concept, poor execution. I haven't tried the updated version, but history proved that any fixes are slow coming. Don't give these guys your money.

Crashes often, but unique features Pros:I was looking for a podcast playing application that would sync to my RSS reader (Google Reader) and keep track of my progress so I can play across devices (work laptop, cell phone, home computer, and tablet) Overall this applicaiton accomplished these things, and I would reccomend it for those features. Cons: The interface is VERY basic. Kind of nice but because of the lack of explanation and the highly context sensitive settings button, it can be difficult to change the settings you want to change. Crashes all the time. Screen rotations are a guaranteed crash, and somtimes just plugging it in crashes it. Can be a hassle to get the podcast playing if say you swap from wi-fi to mobile data mid fetching, and prefer not to download the episodes. Downloading seems glitchy at best, and moved my podcasts out of unplayed and into a special label, which I did not like.. Overall it accomplishes what I wanted, even if not so simply. Features I'd like to see are fixing all the crashes, easier interface, fix the downloading, and a way to point to an RSS source that isnt' google reader, since it will be defunct soon.

Poor execution. Will not retain settings. Crashes often. Beta at best. Many of us payed to be beta testers. Great concept, poor execution. Let's have this major update that was recently announced.

Great concept, poor execution I really wanted this to be a solution to podcast syncing. Press pause on android and play on the web. That's exactly what this app is about. Unfortunately, there are just too many technical issues. Downloads fail and retry all the time, play stops for no reason usually 20-25min into a podcast (really plays havoc with runs), and random "unable to complete the operation" messages that sometimes loses sync position or marks your podcast as played. I hope they fix these things, but now it's unusable.
