Bad
Crashes, stops playing podcasts halfway through if you pause for a bit, terrible 'up next' system, hard to use. Regret my purchase, I'm switching to Downcast.

Bad UI decisions
Wow, this new UI is bad. The look is nice, but many previously easy tasks are convoluted or impossible. Playback also has trouble occasionally, though it's not that bad. At this point, I just want Marco Arment to release his podcast client so I can get out of Instacast...

Pretty Solid
Overall I am really liking this as my main pod catcher, my only gripe is it seems like the touch areas for play and skip ahead/back are too small - I find myself touching repeatedly before getting a response. I have a lot of trouble getting downloaded podcasts to play right away too - even though they're pre-down downloaded, it's almost like they still need to buffer before starting, which is odd. Small complaints but overall quite satisfied.

Wow. They really screwed up a good thing.
This new version of IC for iOS7 is horrible! I have just deleted this app and switched to pocket casts.

Just like everything else done for iOS7
The features I liked are gone, the entire UI got clunkier and less functional with the removal of button borders and the obsession with white space, and the program just doesn't run as smoothly. I went with Instacast because I want to just go through all my unplaced podcasts in the order they were released and listen to them from oldest to newest, with new stuff getting added to the end automatically. Evidently, the morons in charge thought this was crazy, so now I have to manually add every episode to this stupid Up Next queue. Or I can just get rid of it and use Doggcatcher on my S4, which just works.
