It Could Be Good If.......

they had some basic functionality and customization. 1. currently no way to get back to home screen without using "back", tedious after searches etc.... 2. Ads that you can't even pay to get rid of (this will probably be a deal barker for me) 3. Can't order my content and the things subscribed to are pushed back and "featured" content pushed to front on home screen. Need to be able to have my "home screen" as I like. (again possible deal breaker) 4. No way to set a directory for podcasts downloads for offline listening 5. Times out quite a bit during searches 6. Needs better handling of audio AND video podcasts. 7. Expand the catalog a bit more beyond the bog standard is needed.

Very streamlined podcast delivery

I was a bit skeptical about this app based on other reviews. I'm glad I decided to run the install. Interface is friendly and works flawlessly on my VAIO Ultrabook. If you are at all familiar with Win8 basic search function, searching for podcasts and adding them as favs will be a breeze. It took me less than 3 min to get my investor centric podcast lineup set to favs. I feel this app makes my usage sooo much more efficient and integrated. Highly recommend to any user with IT common sense!!

Serviceable podcast app

the interface is nice but it behaves strangely sometimes. Sometimes the audio will cut out if the app is running the background. If I want to listen while working I need to keep it snapped in a quarter of my screen. Its nice having a podcast app that works through windows 8, but this is just a little clunky. It would also be nice if you could search for things other than the names of podcasts (such as the name of a guest, host, or description).

Best Windows 8.1 Podcast App

Great app. Streams seamlessly. No unneeded features. My only issue is that sometimes it won't continue to play while minimized, but this may be a setting that needs to be changed.

Found the podcasts I was searching for. It plays them properly. I think this is what it's supposed to do. Any complaints of no search capability are false. When the app is open, just access the charms bar, select search and then select Podcasts! as the search location. Found all my usual podcasts there.

This app is awesome

It has all the podcasts, even some of the obscure ones that I listen to! It passes my test with flying colors. Keep up the good work!

Only pulls recent content

I tried to use PODCASTS! to listen to a paid podcast of many lessons on Agile project management (Agile Prepcast). However, PODCASTS! only pulls down a set number of recent content on a podcast and doesn't seem to have a way for me to pull down the full content from this podcast. That's an important limitation.

No background play makes this unusable!

How on earth does this not have an option to play in the background? To use this app one has to stop all work on the computer, and just look at a fixed screen with audio. Permissions do not have an option to add to lock screen, so you can enable this option.
