Agree about playback I am devouring my favorite podcasts with this app, happily. But as others have pointed out, playback order is an issue. It plays the most recent podcast first, which might make sense if you were completely caught up on that particular program. But as it stands, I'm getting multi part podcasts in reverse order. Not the worst thing in the world. The simplicity of this app is a strength. Could use improvement, but not too much.

Close but no cigar It does subscribe to and download from rss feeds. Where it falls short is playback. It attempts to do playback itself and does so poorly, extremely limited audio player especially if you like long podcasts that you don't finish in one sitting. The downloaded podcasts all go into one folder and are named poorly. If they were organized by feeds into directories and with good file names I would be happy, and would play the downloads with a good audio book player such as MortPlayer. Unfortunately this is not the case

Beautiful. My favourite app. Reliable. Easy to use. I'd be lost without it. My favourite app. I use it everyday.
