This has been my go-to app for years. I used to recommend it to anyone that was asking about a podcast app for Android. After the update I can no longer recommend it. The app is usable, but this update has taken a huge step back in terms of design. It now longer feels like an android app and feels more like they tried to shove iOS design into Android. Why did you take away the notification for when new podcasts were released? I have to actually tap into a podcast to see if there are any new episodes. Why did you take away the drawer? Features were taken away that were great.

This is my first app rating ever and I\'m taking the time to do it because I LOVED pocketcast until the latest update. Previously, I could get so much clear information quickly to make well informed decisions about how I used the app. Now, I can\'t even see all the podcasts I\'ve downloaded without turning on a filter. Episodes I\'ve downloaded are buffering as if being pulled from the internet. It\'s not at all intuitive. Please, go back to the old interface and quickly!
Melody Shepherd 2019-03-07

Edit 3/7/19: I\'m not a fan of the new update. The WORST part is that they no longer keep unplayed episodes at the top, or a badge notification of new episodes on the podcast icon. I love this app! I\'ve been using Spotify and Google Music to get my podcasts, but this has all my podcasts in one place, plus it has features I\'ve always wanted. I tried stitcher and was super disappointed, but Pocket Cast is what I was hoping for in a podcast app. Plus it\'s very intuitive and easy to use!
John Parke 2019-03-07

I usually never rate or review anything but the latest update is such a step back that I had to give this one star. Playlists were completely removed, all episodes in Up Next before the update were removed and have to be re-added, everything is in a different place, there\'s no way to select multiple episodes with long presses. I\'ve never seen a worse attempt at an upgrade. If you\'re looking for a solid podcast app, this used to be one. Not anymore though.
Paula Miller 2019-04-23

The latest update has ruined a formerly great app. The user interface has been made very confusing and difficult to navigate, and I don\'t have time to figure out how to use it. App stops frequently and is constantly sending the message that \"Pocket Casts keeps stopping,\" even when I have closed the app and am using different apps. I uninstalled and reinstalled, but the problem persists. I will have to uninstall permanently because it is making my phone unusable.

Cannot believe I paid for this app, the update is extremely disappointing. I loved the app prior to the update as it was very easy to navigate and keep track of my podcasts. I have to say if I hadn\'t paid for this I would delete it. They charged for the app then made it free with a plus option. Those that already paid were asked to pay again. Says enough about this company.
George Hack 2019-04-01

Why did you mess up a great app, I used to really love this app it was so easy to navigate and now it takes 3 or 4 steps to do one task, what were you thinking pocket cast !!!!!! Update: Three weeks later and I still dislike this update, so clunky and difficult to navigate through, things I would like: An easier way to go full screen with a video podcast. The fast foward and back icons that come up when you touch the screen should fade away after about 10 seconds, like it did before the update.
Sarat chandra 2020-10-27

The new v7 update sucks... The whole app looks pretty bad. Don\'t know why the devs thought that they had to change the old interface. For example getting new episodes is a filter now. You have to go to three to four steps more to do just a simple thing. I am really disappointed. I used to love this app. Will change the review if they bring back the older interface or atleast scrap this one and make a more intuitive interface. Or else I just have to look for an alternative now.

Version 7 is an absolute disaster. What happened to the little numbers letting you know the unlistened to episodes? That is how I knew of new episodes. V7 has make setting up the up next as a chore. And I don\'t think the developers know what the word archive means. Delete was more accurate. The attitude of the developers has made it abundantly clear there is no hope for this app. I am moving to Podcast Addict, I tried a few out and that is my recommendation.

Very Good App, Deceptive Sale Practices! I bought Pocket Casts several years ago as I chose to support the developers. Then, all of a sudden, the app became free for everybody. Now, a new paid option called \"Plus\" has been introduced that requires a monthly or yearly fee. So, you took my money for the lifetime upgrade license, then you converted my account to a free one, and now you want money again? These are truly deceptive practices, and I am not sure why Google allows them!
