We have 1 review for Downcast. The average overall ratings is 2.0 / 5 stars.
Overall Opinion: The only reason to use Downcast is that the iTunes podcast functionality is appallingly bad and there aren't any good altneratives. Podcasts have been around and culturally important for how long, now? MacOS users are still out in the cold. Downcast kind of wins the field by having basic functionality, but it is slow and unreliable and I swear it gets worse every day I use it. From the time you click on an episode to the time it starts playing could be a second, a minute, or never. You double-click, maybe something happens. Maybe it doesn't. Maybe if you leave the app alone for a minute, it'll recover and play an episode. Maybe not. Maybe if you quit and reopen the app it'll work. Or maybe it'll just sit there thinking to itself for five minutes until you decide to try quitting and reopening again. You just don't know. And it seems to eat RAM at an obscene rate. Play one ca. 100 megabyte episode, and it's using 3 gigabytes of RAM. How is that even possible?
Pros: It works, sometimes, and the interface is nice.
Cons: It doesn't work, sometimes, and there doesn't seem to be any way to predict whether it will work or not in any given moment nor anything you can do about it.
