    I've given up on podcast app I've been using ("BeyondPod") and was all set to try either Pocket Casts or DoggCatcher, but noticed that each of those has recent reviews reporting lots of problems working with S10.
    Has anyone found a podcast app that's stable on S10 and new UI?

    Pocketcast is by far the best podcast app around. Unfortunately, their recent updates have ruined it.

    Google Podcast is too bare bones.

    Nothing comes close pocketcasts and it's cross platform, syncs podcasts, playing positions etc beautifully across all devices in all platforms.

    I use Podkicker. I don't use it on your phone, but it's another one to check reviews and see if it'll work.

    Pocket Casts works great for me. Never any problem.

    I was using Google but the only podcast I listen to says not available anymore but it is still available Google's just not showing me new ones for some reason on this phone. I just see old ones. I need a new podcast app to try. I was able to find it online and listen which is how I noticed 2 new ones.

    I currently prefer Podcast Addict and works great for me on my S10+. I've used pocketcasts, podcast Republic and player FM also in the past - but haven't used on S10+.

    Lots of bugs and new owners seem like they're not bothering to address the issues or continue development.

    Pocketcasts here. The newest update did bring changes, but nothing you won't get use to. In ways it's better.

    Google Podcasts is terrible for anyone who's actually serious about listening to more than one podcast. It's a joke how bad that app is.

    The latest UI change was shocking at first, bit it's easy to get used to once you try, and latest updates are bringing some functionality back that was foolishly removed (such as marking episodes as played). Easily the best podcast app overall.

    Well I am uninstalling Google Podcast but it's been fine until new phone but maybe Google actually quit carrying the podcast. I thought the guys were maybe on vacation then I checked the next week and still nothing. I googled and a page came up and I see 2 more podcast. So does Pocketcast cost?

    I think it's like $5 but there's no monthly fees like some other podcast apps have. Well worth it.

    Well it may just be Google quit playing my podcast. I asked the guys on twitter if it went away on Google Podcast and they didn't respond. It's the only podcast I listen too these 2 guys from my soap opera. But I can go to browser somewhere when I googled it and play it and see the latest 2 episodes Google Podcast doesn't show me and was saying unavailable. So I'll try a different one thanks! I just listen to and from work it's a once a week show.

    I used PocketCast for years but the latest update ruined my ability to set up a custom playlist. I have since switched to DoggCatcher and am enjoying the autodownload feature. I can create a custom playlist from the downloaded content.

    I have tried almost all of the major podcast apps and have settled on Podcast Addict. Pocketcasts, while having a spectacular interface, insists upon renaming the files to long strings of undecypherable gibberish, such that if you have to factory reset or switch devices, the files you have downloaded, many of which are no longer on their servers, are completely worthless. Having been a phone tester for some time, its insistence on doing this (and I went back and forth with Shifty Jelly's tech support many times on this issue), makes it dead in the water.

    Video Podcatcher Deluxe is also an attractive alternative with a good interface, but a sync system that is not quite sufficiently robust.

    Podcast Addict has an excellent interface; does not rename files; and provides for complete backup files that can "re-read" the files already on your sdcard and repopulate the app no matter how many times you factory reset or switch devices.

    Highly recommended.

    I agree. I've tried others but I keep coming back to Pocketcasts.
