8 years and counting

When there were no good podcasts app I downloaded downcast and never left. It’s a great product that seems like the developer is doing out of goodwill. I appreciate your product and thank you for still supporting it.

LOVE this app & use it daily

Found Downcast six years ago and never looked back, nothing else compares. One question tho’, I recently attempted to add a feed for the first time in years and could not. Search returned a connection error and the genre lists refuse to populate. Should I be concerned?

Used daily for 8-plus years on 4 continents.

No other podcast app is more reliable or configurable. My queue currently contains 250 feeds, and approximately 20,000 downloaded episodes. Downcast handles all this data effortlessly and seamlessly. In short, Downcast is the only reason I continue to buy and use Apple products

Requires so much bandwidth?

Downcast has just never worked well for me. It acts like I don’t have WiFi or cell service when I have both. I’ll have enough WiFi to seamlessly be streaming TV then I’ll open Downcast and find that it struggles to update my podcast feed, and when I click to stream a podcast episode, it’ll take 30 seconds to be ready. I don’t have these issues with my other podcast app (or, in fact, any other apps at all), so I think the issue must be with Downcast.
