Ok. I have tried EVERY podcast option available on Windows phone, and I mean EVERY OPTION, and they are all broken in some way. So, I took a chance with this new one when I saw it on the marketplace. So far I'm excited but it's stability...so I'll give it 3 stars for that. Here's how you will get me to come back and give it more...allow playback under lock screen, put in a way to actually search for a podcast by the name of the podcast instead of just putting in the URL, and DON'T break the stability when you do this. This is the first podcast app that has not given me random broken messages about why the podcast can't download (memory issues when I have almost 20 Gb of memory available), and/or randomly decided that played episode haven't actually been played and automatically re-downloading them. Also please put in the option to select that the podcast play in order of oldest to newest. Do that...and I'll be back to give it five stars guaranteed.

Response - Needs Skip Interval

I have not figured out how to directly respond to your review other than post another review. First of all, thank you for your review. Any feedback to improve this app is greatly appreciated. From the video episode screen, if you touch "the number of seconds already played" and "the total number of seconds for the episode", you would be able to skip backward or forward 30 seconds. I know that this feature is not as straightforward as it should be, but the design goal is to make the screen as less cluttered as possible. As to the option of skipping 30 seconds or 60 seconds, I will consider adding that in the next release. Again, thank you for your review!

Great, but could be better

EZPodder is my go to podcaster for windows (as BeyondPod is only for Android). It's a great app, but I think it could be much better. For a paid app, I would expect it to sync my list of favorites and downloads. I use this on two computers, so having to then repopulate my lists again is not only a time consuming hassle, but something I would expect from a free product, not a paid one, especially at $2.50. EDIT - Got in touch with the creator and there's to be an update soon to rectify these types of things. Was very happy that he was so willing to not only get back to me, but let me know where he was with updating this great app!

Great Pod Cast Utility

For someone who listens to pod casts often, this is a great little utility for Windows 8.1. I especially like being able to download podcasts that I like because I'll often have a series of podcasts that I really enjoyed that I like to listen to every so often. This is going to let me do that. Decent value for the price. That said, there were a couple little quirks, e.g. despite having selected my default location, it still showed me the privacy policy in both English and Chinese. But, there was nothing major. Thanks for a cool little tool.

Looks nice and is easy to navigate through but....

The only thing that's stopping me from switching over is that I can't specify options to automatically download these podcasts so I can watch them offline. Once you have that, I'm willing to consider buying it......

Thanks for the review. I will add the feature of auto-downloading in the to-do list.

Needs Skip Interval

This is missing an important feature that other paid Podcast apps have - a Skip Interval setting with an option of 30 and 60 seconds forward. For the price, this app should have this and I'm really disappointed that it doesn't. If it's buried in a Setting I missed (though I checked thoroughly) let me know and I'll edit my review.
