Pretty good

I wanted something better than the built-in podcaat app. The default app didn't always download new episodes while not in use. It also has poor playlist management. Podcast Lounge is much better in those areas and is generally more feature rich. The only annoyance now with PL is navigating within the app. I end up hitting the back button a lot more to go "up" levels once I delve in. So, while there is room for improvement, PL is much better than the built-in app.

This is everything the native app should be - effortless and reliably functional. It has found every show I've searched by title or host name or URL, a huge improvement over the native app. Highly recommend!

There seems to be a FS problem on Windows 10 mobile

My favorite podcast app, but after upgraded to Windows 10 mobile, I can no longer download any podcast onto my phone, the downloaded podcasts disappear as I restart the app, maybe there's an FS API problem... hoping to be fixed soon :)

Best WP Podcast App I've Found!

Auto Download over WiFi only is my favorite feature but search, tile interface, and other features are awesome too.

Astatically pleasing, I love the custom automatically generated playlists, and ability to pin specific feeds and playlists to start. Complaint: Sometimes when I download a show it won't play, if I delete it and try again it usually works though, but that doesn't help when I'm not at Wi-Fi. Features I'd like to see added: 1.) I would like to see the ability to alter playback speeds. Specifically I would want x.5 to x2 done in increments of x.25 or smaller. Often I find x1.25 to be perfect for getting a little faster without too much altering of audio quality. 2. Ability to subscribe to a feed w/out it being a favorite. Thanks!

When it works it's great!

The app is fully featured and well designed and in its inception was flawless. Fast forward to several Redstone builds later and the app has slowed down considerably and crashes much more frequently on windows 10. The developers have not updated the program in a very long time and there doesn't seem to be one coming that I know of. I may need to find another option for windows 10, it was great when it worked though.

Almost Full-featured and Wonderful

I love how playlists can be tailored and organized. I've never run into an issue with the streaming or download side of things...but I have one request that's nagged at me in the two years that I've had this app: Variable speed. It's such a necessity for me and the one glaring omission in this otherwise great app.

I've been using PL on my Lumia 920 for 18months and really like the detailed customizing one can do. I use it daily to manage about a dozen daily/weekly shows. The menus sometimes are a bit funny to learn and it has had a few annoying quirks. [By far the most annoying: On rare occasion I manually download podcasts don't appear in a corresponding smartlist right away unless I open the list, cancel as it searches, and then reopen... And even that trick doesn't always work.]. But that is quibbling... Buy it and don't look back.

Great features and easy to use

The best podcast app on the Windows Store I've used. The catalog is much greater than the built in podcast player and has great features. The smart playlists are very nice.

Almost perfect...

Doesn't have a setting for downloading OLDEST unplayed episodes, meaning that for podcasts that I'm not completely caught up on I have to use another, inferior app. But the smart playlists, and the nighttime syncing over WiFi is great, best thing since Zune podcast management in WP7.
