  • Great app! Please add “Send to Watch” support

    By ADCarlson
    This is my favorite podcast app! The only thing that it doesn’t have that I would wish for is to be able to send a podcast to your Apple Watch so you don’t need to bring your phone along for runs. One other thing that I notice is that I’d like it when resuming a video podcast, it’d just default to playing the video instead of asking “Video or Audio”. Thanks!
  • This is one of my favs.

    It would be even better if the user was not locked into the preset playback speeds. Having a slider or something else to throttle playback speed, ideally on the fly as the audio file is being played.
  • Wonderful podcast app

    By Coke
    First picked up when apple broke out their podcast player years ago, happy ever since. Ability to set default speeds for some casts, sane defaults and configurable settings. Support emails quickly responded to if an issue does arise.
  • Still my favorite.

    By DerekMoyes
    I’ve been using Downcast for some time and I really like the automatic feed refresh feature. I have it set for two locations: Home & Work, when I arrive. I allow checking for podcasts on cellular, browsers t downloading only on WiFi. The cool thing is with automatic checking when I arrive at these two places, I’m connected to the WiFi within a minute or so, so the newly released podcasts can download. Having it tied to GPS means I don’t have to open up the app to get it to start downloading.
  • Update: Fantastic Podcast App

    By Leica-Fan
    Update: Still loving this app. Use it everyday. Still enthusiastically give it 5 stars. I've been using this app for maybe 3yrs now and I can't recall my iPad being w/o it, to be honest. I use it almost everyday and it's fabulous. I loved it from the start and the developer has continued to expand and improve it's functionality. Every once in awhile I open apple's podcast app and am reminded everytime how much better Downcast is. Enthusiastically give it 5 stars. Richard Ward
  • Responsive developer!

    By Reviewer11235813
    Update: developer has reached out to me! Update 2: the bug I identified appears to have been resolved. THANK YOU!
  • Bug Report

    By Saito Fun
    function “Find Podcasts” is not working
  • Don’t like last update

    By Mont001
    Cannot lock/unlock podcasts with long press as it always was a convenient future. Only can do it what I press the “info” icon, which brings the next screen. So, it’s a new extra step for me for locking podcasts. Please correct! iPhone 6S+, iOS 11.2.
  • Normally 5 Stars. Latest version unstable

    By ScottV19
    Latest version unstable and is quitting in the middle of podcast playback. Lags when opening the list of episodes for a given podcast and lags when opening an episode to start playback. Please fix!
  • If you use on multiple devices, prepare to lose everything

    By ThomasSerio
    On the surface using iCloud to sync between devices is a big plus. In practice this is implemented horribly by Downcast. Instead of syncing based on the most recent changes, Downcast will happily sync whatever you opened last as the “master” copy. So if you have the app on the Mac and iPhone, and have been using the iPhone version exclusively for a while, as soon as you fire up the Mac app it will “sync” your phone with whatever old information was on the Mac - deleting any new podcasts or episodes along the way and forcing you to search for and add those deleted podcasts and episodes. It’s a good app for one and only one device. Stay away if you want/need syncing between devices.
