Pros and cons of Pocket Casts app for iPhone and iPad

Pocket Casts app good for

Ive tried the Lite version and was so amazed that I brought the full App (1st App I paid for), and the extra functions make this App even better! Must have if you listen to webcasts!!
Great app with beautiful design !! But could be more useful and powerful if we had settings for each podcast instead of global settings. I do not have the same rules to download and manage the podcasts I like. Hope it will be added in the next update. Thanks.
I tried a few podcast apps and I find this one to be the best, both for its clean design and rich feature set.
You can stop looking around for other podcast apps. This is the best. Full. Stop.
The only feature i would like to see and is not there is choosing a time interval for the automatic refresh on the podcasts, for users subscribed on 50+ channels like me, i am afraid the app does get new episodes all day long and this might be battery consuming even though i dont see this ranked too much up battery wise, is something to remember. Otherwise i tested and purchased all other good rates and famous podcast apo ans this is the best one.
Guys, youre getting better and better every version!! Thanks for this great work!

Some bad moments

When using Bluetooth, it hangs a lot. In the previous version it never happened.
It used to be awesome. The latest version is too slow, though. Its been a pain to use it.
...which renders the nicest podcast app pretty much useless. Would be great otherwise.
A lot of the podcasts that are downloadable on another app come up with and error. Half the podcast album art doesnt load and wont refresh. Customer service wont answer any of my emails. I want my money back.
This app is really visually appealing and easy to use. I like a lot of the features and how easy it is to add/delete episodes. But they have no playlist option. Weirdly, you can create a playlist, but there is absolutely no way to add episodes to the playlist, rendering the function useless. Maybe update this so the playlist function is actually useable?
Looks like they havent updated it in a long time, maybe theyre leaving it. I have emailed them with no response about a bunch of glitches. I dont use this anymore as its buggy, Overcast works better and is kept up-to-date so take a look at that if looking for another podcast option.
