Downcast App Reviews

  • It’s good as standalone but unusable with CarPlay

    By HappyPig
    I love Downcast as it has all the options you need while not deluging you with them in the GUI. However it’s become extremely unstable of the CarPlay, with crashes happening about every five minutes.
  • Crash Prone

    By DonaldMacCalif
    Mirroring other comments, the amount of random crashing it past the tipping point. Been using this great app for years. Perfect form and function. For the past few months it has been plagued with random crashes - several per hour. My patience has lapsed and I am now using the feature-imperfect Podcast app. Now no crashes but miss Downcast a lot.
  • It’s not as great as it used to be

    By Gabo883
    Amazing organizational options and fantastic customizability for each podcast download and playback settings. I absolutely love that... unfortunately the app has become almost unusable! Constantly crashes on start-up, I can’t cast to chrome-cast like anymore because the casting will disconnect randomly and the podcast will play simultaneously on the phone and the Chrome Cast OR it will just stop and the app will crash and I will have to restart. Sometimes it takes minutes to get past the loading screen, app won’t remember episode playback status so It’ll play them again from the beginning, the application will also crash as I skip forward to another episode. When I plug in my headphones and press play it’ll take over a minute for the app to continue and when it does it immediately stops playback after a couple of seconds and I’ll have to return to the app to resume playback. I keep waiting for updates that might fix the issues or better it, but each update is making it worse. I’ll have to look for something else in the meantime but I really hope they get the issues fixed. I do love this app otherwise
  • “Dark mode” impossible

    By johnfromberkeley
    This app cannot be used in dark mode. The library interface is a white background, and the player is a black background. If you make one dark, the other one shines in your face. Please add dark mode.
  • Best!!

    By jjcavins
    Best podcast app ever. I’ve tried them all. Keep coming back to this one
  • My favorite podcast app!!

    By Jfather
    I have tried many apps but always come back to downcast. My favorite feature is the fact that the podcasts are listed in the order the were released.
  • Almost there

    By 127gh8as
    The customization this podcast player offers is great. It misses the mark by not offering a “dark mode.” The screenshots in the App Store show it, but it’s not available.
  • Great - needs one more thing

    By muck dawg
    I have used Downcast for years and love the app! Super easy to use and the features are great. One thing I’d like to see is the ability to set a limit on the size of the download. For example, say I subscribe to a podcast that has both audio podcasts and video podcasts. I’d like to be able to have a setting where if the file size is over 100mb for example, skip it. Do nothing. Or only download file sizes less than 100mb for example.
  • Education on the go

    By DaveMuth
    I love podcasts to learn new ideas while I'm on the move and resting. Downcast has been my companion for 4 years everyday. No glitches, I love it.
  • Best podcast app for years

    By Hockrockgutrot
    I started using Downcast back when Apple released the ridiculous tape-to-tape version of their app. Downcast hasn't let me down yet! Thanks!!
