Synch Problems
I bought the desktop and iOS versions specifically because of the ability to synch across all my devices. I use it on two Macs, an iPhone 5 and iPad 4. The hope was that I would be able to easily organize my podcast on my desktop and have that setup available when I am out and about on my iOS devices. No joy. The synch does not function acceptably. Sometimes subscriptions don't update. Items marked as played don't show up across all devices. And so on. I'm back to doing it the old fashioned way on my iPhone and wasted money on the desktop/ios configuration.

Bug Notice
I noticed a small bug with this update. App crashes and playback controls unresponsive after pausing. Seems to be if the podcast is marked as played. Can fix if you remark it as unplayed.

Not as advertised
I bought this app based on it's stated ability to sync between devices. I have a MacBook, iPhone, and iPad, and I get no synchronization. As a player, it's fine.

Too Many Podcasts Fail to Play
I tried this on my iPhone 4 after the good reviews. I wanted a replacement for the Apple podcast app. I've use this for several months and I do not recommend it. Several of my favorite podcast often fail to download or stream for no reason.The second is that I find the interface too complex for a podcast app. A lot of apps suffer from an overly complex UI -- some twitter apps look mission control for the space shuttle! But the frequent problems with playing my podcasts is the major reason for my negative review. And their web page was no help either.
