Pretty, but a step backward, functionality-wise
The new version looks nice and shiny on iOS 7, but it feels like a step backwards functionally. The new interface is harder to see, the touch targets seem smaller and less responsive, the app feels slower overall, and Up Next seems like a poor replacement for Continuous Playback, which just worked without unwanted extra steps.

A Waste of Cash, time and energy
This app is a total waste of time and money. It does NOT do what the advertising claims. In fact, it is unclear just exactly what it is supposed to do, if anything. I would warn and and all considering purchasing of this app to stay away. USELESS is all one can say. I deleted it from my device 5 minutes after downloading it.

Doesn't work
Only bought for one podcast channel, "pillars of the word" and app says it isn't available. 137 podcast on this channel and your app won't play any of them. I'd like a refund of my $4.99 please.

Missing Features
Cons: Lists no longer play continuously by default and it no longer remembers your login/authentication for premium podcasts. Annoying extra steps for things that have worked just fine in previous iterations. Pros: The new interface is great and fits well with iOS 7. Still a great podcast aggregator and player with lots of fine detail options.

Still getting critical crash.
I updated my review because I can see with the update you are trying to fix it. It works until I sync my account and then crashes repeatedly.
