Really like the interface
I really wish this software would download subscribed podcasts automatically instead of requiring that I select each file individually. I want to download them all!More
One of the nicest Windows apps
This app works great and is intuitive/easy to use. The UI is really great, it looks like a true Windows app. I also enjoy how it complies with the app standards, and that it takes advantage of notifications and tiles. I hope the developers keep supporting it!More
Best podcast catcher on Windows.
I listen to a lot of podcasts at work. This app is so much better than even iTunes. I use this app exclusively now. When I get my Windows phone soon, I will happily purchase the app on Windows phone as well.More
Great app, great support!
I am so far very pleased with NarrowCast. I am a podcast listener from way back, and now with W 8.1 and my WP 8.1 I am happy to have found a simple clean app for my listening. I had some trouble at first (I am NEW to W 8.1 platform having migrated from XP) and Corey was very gracious and helpful with my questions. I think you will be pleased with NarrowCast.More
So Far It's OK
Haven't used it long -- but my needs are fairly basic. Just looking for an easy way to view 3-4 weekly podcasts. This seems to be a good choice. I like that it has variable speed playback, and it's not easy to find podcast players that'll play at 1.25 speed. For me, the only missing item is quick advance/rewind buttons -- they're usually present in 30 second (or user configurable) increments. This player doesn't have them (yet?). There aren't yet a lot of podcast player options for Windows 8, but this one is a good start.More
Unstable. And different set of features between tablet and phone versions. Syncing doesn't seem to work.More
Went to play a downloaded episode then it crashed, deleting all my subscriptions and downloaded episodes. Why are there no podcast aps for Windows that actually work?More
app crashing when downloading
When I download an episode of anything it crashes.More
Have a lot to improve
I have installed on my laptop and tablet and found that it always forced close on my tablet but not on my laptop. Please fix itMore
