It's ok

The app is fine. It could be better but there's a missing feature.. can't add RSS feeds and the verge mobile show video feed is missing.

Okay, so now it does connect and it remains the best Podcast App for windows 8/windows phone 8. However performance (at least on Win 8 Surface RT) is SLOW, unacceptably slow for what is essentially an RSS reader. A lot needs to be done in this regard, and honestly, if nothing but performance was updated it would deserve 5 stars. Additionally, syncing your place across devices would be awesome. and after about 30 minutes of playing while device is in low power state it will stop and crash out.

It's getting better

I bought this app since I have high hopes for it. The sync is great - I love being able to pick up podcasts where I left off on a different system. There are some issues, though. The video podcasts don't play full screen and playing the video doesn't keep the screen from shutting down. This app has been improving, but there's still more work to do. One big grip I had is that the domain (and support) have been dead for a long time.

Would love password protected podcast support

Great app for both desktop and phone, but would absolutely love it if it supported password protected podcasts like the Steve Dahl Network.

A few missing options to make it a 5 start

It needs: Too many missing features to use it daily. - Add 1x, 2x and 3x playback options - Automatic download for latest subscribed videos. Similar to a podcast software. - Keep last X (ie: 3) youtube videos. - Remove played videos automatically. - Ability to download without playing it. Add option "download" when next to play when you select it in the home page.

Solid Podcast App

I loved this app back when I was still using the consumer preview and I am glad it finally started working again now on the full Windows 8. The playback is great and it works great when snapped to a side while using a different app. I only wish there was more selection on podcasts.

Slow and requires Facebook log-in for device sync

Best podcast app available as it is the only one that offers streaming. Cannot understand why they only allow Facebook log-ins on a platform as large as Windows (I am on Win 8 on a PC). Often slow to start playing podcast. Looks great, but still needs much improvement. I have been using since the Release Preview and hoped for improvements by now. Still nice to have the app available but hope the dev will allow a log-in other than Facebook. Hate to do it, but this is barely a 3-star app.

not quite good enough

works, but it is a little slow fetching lists of available podcast. Lists what appear to be the same podcast more than once. Needs better searching. I guess I will try other options.

Advertising and playlists

I don't mind the fact that you show advertising on your page, but can you keep it off the scroll bar? That is just bad design. Adding playlists and a way to download the content for offline listening would also be nice.

Will not load, always crashes...

After I upgraded to the "Final" windows 8 build, and reinstalled apps, Slapdash acts like it's loading, and then shuts down immediately. I actually quite enjoyed using this application on the various preview releases for Windows 8, but am disappointed this app won't run now.
