  • Still a little buggy Aug 26, 2021

    By Java_Dave
    The interface is not bad, and anything they don’t have in their catalog can be added via rss (except for password protected podcast feeds like The British History Podcast’s members feed). Still a little buggy, but usually a force quit and restart fixes the problem. It also doesn’t seem to sync played/unplayed status between devices. A desired feature that should be easy to implement: allow for different skip forward & skip backward intervals. For example, skip forward 30 sec & skip backward 10 seconds.
  • Favorite pcast'g app but Missing Shows Oct 28, 2018

    By reddog5280
    Only complaint is I have to use a different app for some podcasts that don't seem to be available on acast. But by far my favorite podcasting app - clean, easy to use. All I want to do is to subscribe & listen to specific podcasts that I've already identified. I don't want to browse, don't want to be inundated w/suggestions ... acast is not overbearing in terms of is suggestions etc. Thank [g]od!

    I have been using this app for two years and it is my favorite! It has a huge library of so many different types of shows. It also has the best organizer of all them. It’s the only one that lets you organize oldest to newest. It also lets you hide episodes you’ve already listened too or started
  • Love! Jul 10, 2019

    By Ltbeasy
    Love this app! So simple to use and visually appealing. The one thing I’d like to request is the option to put it in “light mode” and have a white background opposed to a black background. Other than that it’s perfect 👌🏻

    This is the best caster I have used. Auto play works well and loading older shows auto loads as you scroll back. I like the show older first, but it seems that when it auto plays, the app plays the older episode next instead of the newer episode after that. So, show older first but play forward would be a great fix. Thanks for a great app!

  • Better than apples podcast app Mar 13, 2018

    By Joey505050
    Love this app, has features the iPhone app doesn't and has some podcasts that apple doesnt. Plus it has a much darker theme within the app itself. Check out the nosleep podcast, its dope

    When you listen to most podcasts it feels like you are involved in a conversation with friends. The light hearted, witty banter mixed with the genuine care for humans and the environment are the perfect oasis to escape to when the worlds feels to negative. Good on ya m8s
  • Mentor Oct 9, 2020

    By The East West Grind Podcast
    Simon has been my mentor in building strong trusting teams and in developing my own personal growth over the past 5 years. Simon has made it “ok” to make those changes in myself because he casts no judgment. Judgments usually brings defense = no chance at connecting to make a difference. Change is hard for most.. with someone like Simon, change is welcomed and exciting.... I adore him! Christine Silva

  • Used to work like a charm. Now? Not so much Nov 24, 2016

    By Fluffy-face
    I was drawn to this app because some podcasts I follow publish podcasts via Acast. I've had few problems with the app. Until now. Now the app fails to unsubscribe me from podcasts I don't want updates for anymore. And it won't subscribe me to podcasts I want to listen to. Maybe this bug will be fixed in the future, but I'm going to move on to other podcatchers and SoundCloud for the moment for my podcasts.

    Adds will arbitrarily interrupt the podcast and then the show stops working. Seconds tick by with no sound. Rewind does not fit the problem.
  • It keeps getting worse Apr 4, 2017

    Only use this app because Pod providers use Acast plus. I use other podcast managers for all others. This app has no automatic downloads, downloading/deleting a pod takes 2 clicks (used to be 1). Do not use unless you have to
  • App crashes Oct 2, 2016

    As soon as I put my phone in my pocket after starting a podcast which I've downloaded (so it's not streaming), the app crashes. Can't believe I spent money on Acast+

  • Updt: NewsFlash - Acast Soon to become more liike Most Podcast Apps Apr 28, 2019

    By Music_Lv'r
    (04/28/19-Review Update)- It is a said: success delays, or removes quality, and availability. It must be true. I remember my initially ebullient review of a different (paid) podcast app, a decade ago, having to periodically downgrade it, by stars and comments, finally, in disgust, simply tolerating it, for my access to Music, Worldwide. Since acast’s addition, this has held true. Aaah! Alas, acast is beginning to make the SAME MISTAKES—whilst NOT Fixing its older Issues, as clearly detailed in a 2-Star review 1y ago, by another user. For ex.: Here a my Pet Peeves: • Why no iPad Version with horizontal view? this is a no-brainer; and • now—by including “premium” content—acast is a’casting a $2./month-wide net into the vast Digital Divide ocean. - Many Podcasters themselves already do this. Now acast follows suit. This is too bad! Soon, I may have to begin a search, yet again). WHY NOT SIMPLY ESTABLISH A ONE-time PAID Version cost. I’d rather pay that money, even at $10., keeping the App proper, w/o adding Social Media, “premium” content included. ____ NOTE: This, ça. 2015 review I wrote, titled: NewsFlash - (Acast Soon to Overtake Most Podcast Apps) is ONLY PARTIALLY still True: FINALLY! A FRESH, AWESOME Long-Hoped-For APP, to take (progressively-worsening TuneIn Radio Pro, app ("TiRP"), out of my Devices. Except for a few easily-Fixable Quirks, "acast" has now easily Surpassed "TiRP's" reign. (Stay Tuned...).
  • Why are we going backwards??? May 8, 2018

    By GaErika
    Love this app, but I’m sad that it’s not as easy to organize the downloaded episodes any more. And why is the auto play not working!!! I loved that feature while I was driving.
  • Missing Content Mar 6, 2017

    By KatherineMeows
    I love the user interface. Very organized and intuitive to use, and I love the ability to download select podcasts on command. However I'm knocking two stars because a lot of podcasts seem to be unavailable, so I'm forced to switch so that I can listen to new recommendations. Specifically it seems to be smaller, indie podcasts that are tough to track down such as TYCI and Dumb People Town
  • Great Potential Jun 21, 2016

    By Tyler Lawrence
    Love the app, interface is great, premium content subscriptions are an added bonus. However, to really solidify it as my favorite podcast app, iPad integration is necessary and there is some content missing that is available elsewhere (e.g. POLITICO podcasts, etc.). Excited to see where the development team will take it.
  • Podcasts Rewind After Pausing for Extended Periods Nov 20, 2020

    By thismustbethegage
    This app is great compared to the Apple podcasts app and has some cool features. That said, I've had issues since I started using the app a year ago with it rewinding my podcasts by several minutes after being paused for a while. I open the app and hit play and it initially shows the time code where I stopped then jumps back several mins once it finally loads. I'd love to see that get fixed as well as an addition for adding podcasts to your queue rather than only having the option of playing the episode next.
