Can't connect

Can not connected to internet on internet connected computer. When starting you get a message (I am unable to connect to the internet, make sure you are connected to the internet). Uninstalling and reinstalling do not fix the problem. This is happening on multiple systems.

Does not play ANY podcasts

The app UI is fantastic, has lots of podcasts to choose from, very sleek and easy to use. HOWEVER I can not get a single podcast to play, I can go to the selected podcast choose an episode, after that it just sits and loads till I close it down, (I have waited HOURS for it to work with no progress), I have windows 8.1 (fully updated) on my acer aspire R7 and it just does not work. Please fix this and I will rate 5 stars.

Good start but needs a LOT of work

Crashes when I play an item from a custom podcast unless I manually download it first. Has a separate login - this is a windows store app, it needs to use my microsoft ID that I'm already logged in with.

Laggy, slow, and no variable speeds.

So far I still have not been able to find a good podcasting application for Windows 8. I was hoping Slapdash would fill this void, but unfortunately it has too many issues. The first few times I opened it was unresponsive and very slow to do anything. I finally got the podcasts up, but it also has no variable speeds for playback. It has the start of a potentially good app, but performance issues and no changing of playback speeds hold back the app for now.

Mixed Bag...Poor Support.

It gets most of my podcasts...I do have two XML podcasts that do not work with this but does on another podcast app. I emailed the dev twice with no response. Poor support....

Needs fixes/features

Would like to see more features like playlists, auto downloads, more stability, more feeds because NPR All Songs Considered doesn't work. I would review the app Pocket Casts for idea's

Simply doesn't work?

Thus far this app appears unable to download/stream a single video podcast. (Tekzilla Large WMV)

Subpar experience

No controls to manage position. Often crashes and slow to load. Doesn't play many podcasts while in background. Doesn't automatically sync. Pushpod was much better but looks like it's not around anymore. I've switched to just using my WP8.

Version notes

Thanks again for trying SlapDash Podcasts. I'm continuing the bug fixing in preparation for the final release. Thanks to everyone that sent me feedback, it means a lot to me. UPDATES The mouse scrolling on all pages has been fixed. The app supports video podcast downloading for offline playback. The furthest played is displayed for each episode. The furthest played location is synced between Windows 8 devices. Better image caching for improved performance. Stability improvements. Take care, -Joe
