Version 2.0.2
Review by Hrhnick

Potential to be the best. - UPDATE: +1 star. Developer implemented all feedback within a week. Near perfect Podcast app now. The developer has already committed to CarPlay support, some minor tweaks to the UI and this app would be perfect. I would love to see a way to make the Library tab default over the Popular tab. The subscribe button should be more prominent, and it would be awesome to be able to get a podcast playing with one or two less clicks.

Version 2.1.0
Review by Leonard Armstrong

No reason to spend $$ on this - I tried this app hoping for an improvement to Apple's podcast client. This app is not an improvment. The cute spinning record is no substitute for an otherwise bad UI where podcast discovery is awkward at best, with the search list going away after selecting a new podcast. If you'd like to try more than one podcast you have to re-search. This was a killer for me as podcasts are so prevelant that new podcast discovery is a must-do-well in any client.
