This was my favorite thing in 2017 and moving into 2018! I have 2 small kids and a husband who travels, I have no time to read and much of my time at home is consumed by taking care of the kids; so it's nice to be able to listen to a podcast while cooking, cleaning or just hanging out. The app makes it easy to find new podcasts, and to download, stream or subscribe to new episodes.

I had this podcast app deleted on my phone, and honestly, WHY did I ever do that??? I love podcasts. I recently discovered how much I enjoy them, especially for long car rides, which I happen to have all of the time. There is a large range of shows available to listen to and it can be so motivating. If you have an iphone, use the podcast app, it will change your life.

LOVE LOVE LOVE PODCASTS!!! I hate to be “that person”, but I listened to podcasts before they were the “thing”. I’ve used a few apps, but Apple has the easiest. Completely self explanatory. Search. Subscribe. Listen. Apple Podcasts

I used to listen to podcasts through my Apple podcasts app religiously. I loved it so much, not a day would pass without me listening. Then a few updates back they changed the layout on the screen. I could no longer tell which episodes I had listened to and which ones I had not listened to. It was so annoying that I just completely quit listening. I haven’t checked back since the last few updates, so it could be better. A new user may be able to work with the new configuration, but as a seasoned user who listened to around 50 different podcasts, the update took away my ability to keep them organized.

I just started using this app because Jana Kramer now has a podcast and I love it! I haven’t looked at any other podcasts, but I love how you can create a list of your favorite podcasts so you don’t have to search each time. I will definitely use again and explore more options.

Listening to podcast really change my life. I could listen to whatever I wanted. I started listening to a few self-help podcast and tedtalks. It is easy to use. I do recommend this to others. Sometimes it can get a little annoying if you download all your Podcasts to your phone. Are used to have problems with the app rebuilding my library. Since update it doesn’t seem to happen anymore.

I am such a huge podcast fan. I’m subscribed to over 60 podcasts through the Apple podcast directory, and I like the way the app keeps me informed about when I have new episodes, allows me to create playlists a Podcasts so that I can keep listening for hours, let me stream podcasts to other devices, and generally makes it easy for me to enjoy my audio content.

One complaint that I have is that they still haven’t created an Apple Watch app to support podcast listening. I don’t know what the deal is with that, but I wish they would get on it.

I enjoy the content and variety of podcasts available on the app. I do find the podcasts easy to find and appreciate that I am reminded when a new podcast I like is available. The price seems to be fair and I would recommend to others who also enjoy podcasts.

I love podcasts and I love how simple this app is to use. Anyone can figure it out. I use it almost every day when commuting to and from places. I would highly recommend listening to My Favorite Murder!! Very funny podcast. They also have podcasts for everyone.
