  1. If you have a smaller capacity iPhone or iPad, do note downloads does take up hard disk space. Manage the download well & keep listening to clear old podcast automatically or set your settings properly to save more space 😀
  2. I wish downcast add subcategories that iTunes have such as Technology – All, Technology – Gadgets, Technology – Software How To, Technology – Tech News & etc

Overall, this app is a must have for fans of podcasts that almost provide as much content as youtube does! Just search for your favorite podcast & add them! 😀
