Backwards update
The one thing a podcast player has to do well is to play your podcasts effortlessly. 'Up next' completely broke it! I can't believe having to manually add new episodes to a playlist can be considered a feature

Won't load subscriptions from instacast cloud
It doesn't even load my subscriptions from my Instacast Cloud account.

Used to be the best
This app just doesn't work anymore. I'm finally going to give something else a shot. After the many versions I've used and purchased, I'm finally giving up. Glad I didn't have to pay for this latest revision. Sad I'm stuck with the Mac version that won't sync with Pocket Casts, oh well.

Missing the fundamentals
For such a long-lived app, this is really missing some basic features. No way to auto add podcasts to Up Next. No way to continuously play any playlist besides Up Next. No way to sort Up Next. No geofencing to download new episodes when I get wifi. No way to resume a lot of failed downloads from when I walked out of wifi. It's just a overall frustrating and miserable experience. God knows why this app is popular. Style over substance, is my guess.

Sync no longer works. Poor support.
Sync stopped working. 2-3 days to get a response from dev.

Wonderful update
I really like the update for iOS 7. While the price may feel steep, I do understand that the developers need to make a living from the app sales. The app looks great on the iPhone and works great too. Sync worked flawlessly for me. After signing up for an account (not iCloud) I was able to effortlessly pull all my subscriptions onto my iPad. It even remembers the last played point within a podcast episode, which is nice and expected with sync. Great work guys, keep up the good work!
