Pocket Casts App Reviews

  • What good is a podcast app that doesn’t play?

    By dar.irl
    Pocket Casts refuses to resume playback, often requiring a complete app restart to work properly again. Tapping the playback button doesn’t actually start an episode half of the time, and there’s minutes of hangtime before the podcast begins to play.
  • Started playing ads - not embedded in podcast

    By officekat
    I listened to a BBC (UK) podcast that I had downloaded, not streaming. At the end a commercial for a local Oregon USA car dealer comes on. I listen through a little confused how the BBC would do that. But okay. Then I rewind the the podcast by a minute and the ad is not there. Clearly the ad came on after the podcast ended and was inserted by the podcast otherwise it play again. I think pocketcasts is doing something it claims it doesn’t.
  • What happened?!

    By Zan from Zanzibar
    This used to be a 5 star app, now its taking over 14 much needed gb because it won’t delete podcasts. Why would I want them ‘archived’ by default?!
  • The best of the best.

    By haight37
    I’ve used them all and at the end of the day this one just plain works. You get way more than you pay for with this one. It is 100% worth the price. My sincere thanks to the good folks who developed one of the best apps I’ve ever used and one of the few I couldn’t live without! It’s so good I bought it on both iOS and Android and would buy it a third time for my PC if I could. 😉
  • Bad updates

    By daheal787
    Every time they try to make it better it only makes it worse. Tiger woodsing it. Also, when they update my queue deletes.
  • Favorite podcast app

    By mdomaha
    Best app for podcasts I have used. Intuitive and versatile.
  • American Tragedy

    By Chimy28
    It’s so poignant that the graphic for Pocket Casts has American Tragedy. That’s exactly what this is. It’s really the most unbelievable thing I’ve ever seen, taking a world class app and then destroying it. Why? Is this really NPR calling the shots? It has to be true. The people who created this great app didn’t suddenly lose their minds and then become smug, arrogant and unresponsive over night. They have to be marching to NPR’s tune. Tragedy....
  • Don’t believe the rating

    By Media001
    This is NOT a 4 Star App! Since they launched version 7 a few months ago... - Star rating dropped from 4.8 to 3.2 - 70% of the reviews are negative - There were thousands of reviews Now, I see there are less than 100 reviews and a 3.7 rating? I wish the real world worked that way, where we could start over and have the minions troll our way to a 4 star rating. NPR & Pocketcast...not only did you ruin a great app with Version 7...but when the backlash got to bad, you gamed the system to start over and are lying to consumers about what the true rating is. Shame on you. If these are your values, you don’t deserve people’s money.
  • Constant Crashing

    By jvmcin2
    The most recent updates cause the app to crash almost everytime you leave the app and then come back to it. Version 7.1 had none of these issues.
  • Used to be great.

    By grizzlyfoz
    Used to be my default podcast app for many years until they updated it recently and essentially ruined what made it simple and easy to use. Switched to Apple Podcasts.
