That’s it - I’m on my last nerve with this built-in podcast player on my iphone. It’s still too buggy and unreliable for my basic use. I’ve scanned through a handful of threads here for y’all’s thoughts on players, and read enough apple site reviews, but specifically for anyone who’s tried out a few of them: what’s your favorite?
My needs are pretty simple: manage ~30 subscriptions plus various one-time episodes, download automatically, arrange and play in chronological order (oldest first, regardless of show) and that’s about it. I’m working with my hands a lot and often don’t have the ability to fiddle around with the phone, trying to reorganize the list into the order I want, which happens way too often to me. Sync with mac could be useful too, but not necessary.
I see Procast has a pretty cool feature to snip samples from a podcast for later use. I find myself occasionally trying to write down a good quote or a tech tip and I could see how grabbing a 5 second clip to review later could really be helpful.
