Best App for Betting Yourself!
by GovMatrix on 2019/10/16 14:33
Whatever you want to hear whenever you want it. The social aspect is great! Hearing from others on their thoughts of an episode or podcast is such a valued aspect saving time in locating the best content available.
Best podcast app period.
by Shockablooey on 2019/10/12 19:58
One of my three most recommended apps. Can’t count how many people I’ve got to download this.
Great App with Glaring, Old Bug
by Jaxpr3394 on 2019/10/11 10:57
I've seen other reviewers mention this bug, but it still remains. I love this app and the concepts it brings to the table, but the fact that sometimes when you pause it from the lock screen, watch, or airpods, it doesn't resume in the same place, often leaving you at what seems to be a previous pause point makes this nigh unusable for me. I really hope the developer addresses this. Also, updating the subscription list seems to be pretty slow. To top it off, after refreshing the subscription list, I still have to refresh the podcast page itself to see the new episodes. Double whammy for a bad user experience. I'll continue to use this app because I genuinely do like it, but it could use some solid improvements. UPDATE: I have since lowered my rating from 3 stars to 1 star because the bugs in this app disrupt my workday so much, I find myself just listening to Spotify instead. Great idea, poor execution.
Looks good, works poorly
by dameyawn on 2019/10/10 01:22
Really wanted to love this app and recommended to many friends early on. Unfortunately lots of issues: - slow interface esp with a bigger library - slower podcast download speeds than other apps - streaming of podcast effectively doesn't work - recently downloaded 20 gigs of podcasts while on data (instead of WiFi) internationally even though the profile setting has this turned off (costing me $40+ and super slow speeds on google fi thereafter) - Bluetooth controls work inconsistently or not at all - app locks up on average every 20 minutes of listening - search doesn't work well (try searching for "b&n" for Barnes and noble podcast) - lock screen shows playing even when paused or vice versa - location is podcast is often lost forcing you to listen from an earlier point or starting over .... and more
Suggestion from a fellow developer
by JoeMaffei on 2019/10/05 16:18
The “hit boxes” on all icons are too small. For example: trying to mark an episode as listened often causes me to open that episode instead.
UI performance is rough
by ralph the blast cat on 2019/10/05 04:17
Im on a iPhone Xs and the list scrolling CHUGS badly. I like being able to see the most popular podcasts in the Bay Area each week.
Fabulous
by Loves2sing11 on 2019/10/05 00:28
I love Breaker! They are utilized by so many others that there’s no way you won’t be in contact with people you’re wanting to! Awesome and thank you Breaker for your entire team and publishing my Podcast on your platform! I love ❤️ you all always!!! 💖🌟🇺🇸🎤🔑😊🙌🤗
Too buggy
by Zthomas.nc on 2019/10/03 11:27
I love this app but good grief it is always frozen. I pull up podcasts in Spotify while I wait for breaker to respond :/
Too buggy
by assbot9000 on 2019/10/03 08:17
Pros: Playback speed and smart skip functions work well. Cons: Every time I try to download episodes ahead of time when I know I won't have internet access, the app will lose the episode somehow despite having finished the download already. Listening to episodes frequently crashes the app. The progress bar for the episode always freezes, so I don't know how far into the episode I am after pausing it. Social aspect is okay, minus the fact that nobody is really using it.
Great but has some frustrating bugs.
by El Jimmy Rustler on 2019/09/30 12:31
Great app all around. Two things that could use some more work are the search function and more bug removal. The search itself isn’t the worst but sometimes it takes almost until the last letter of a podcast title for it to find the correct one, not very intuitive. The bugs can be a bit frustrating, some of the worst ones I get are toward the end of episodes that have been in a playlist for a while, they often will loop at random intervals. Three minutes will go by then that same 3 minutes will play once more. The absolute worst however is that your progress on an episode will often get deleted. This isn’t normally a huge issue, but with shows like Hardcore History that sometimes have nearly 3 hour episodes having to routinely scrub through to find my position is aggravating.
Fix downloads
by NerfHerder8472 on 2019/09/27 14:12
I have to say I really like the app for a lot of what it offers. I prefer the download and sort options compared to the default Apple app. However, if I am listening to a podcast as it is being downloaded to my device, and something interrupts my internet connection (the whole reason I download them in the first place) I lose the entire download and I can’t start playing the podcast again until I delete the partial download and restart the app...
High Hopes
by Rebel Yellz on 2019/09/25 06:32
I’ve been using Overcast for the about 3 years and loved it, but I found this one and I really like the organization of the app and the way it shows new episodes in the home screen. My major complain is when you scroll though my library of apps they take a few seconds to buffer the images (definitely not a long time, but you will notice), also the podcasts description is in a grey text on a white background (kind of an eyesore). Other than those small things I really like the social aspect kind of like Spotify. Also still not sure how to download episodes.
Deleted my podcasts
by KarenLynns on 2019/09/24 15:04
Is there a way to keep podcasts downloaded after listening? If I’m just missing this setting, then this app would be great. I love the options for setting up playlists! But I often want to hear podcasts more than once (while away from WiFi) so podcasts automatically deleting means this app is useless.
Tell everyone
by Hahajxjejxhoajabx on 2019/09/20 18:48
I keep telling everyone about this app. The app needs more people.
Super buggy with cellular disabled
by Danse en France on 2019/09/14 21:39
I like this app and the UX, but it is super buggy with cellular disabled, which you need to disable if you’re on a per GB data plan because it will download 300-400MB in a couple minutes and that’s even when it was just on WiFi all day and didn’t download the most recent podcast from one I’m subscribed to and listen to weekly. Even opened the app when I was on WiFi thinking it would download and it didn’t. So that’s the downloading problems. The real problem is the play and pause button frequently does not work! I have to force quit and re play a podcast about 15-20 times a podcast to pause and listen to it at the pace I want to, to pause and repeat stuff I want to hear again. So I guess I should stop using this app.

Good information
Love /Hate
by Tanney9 on 2019/09/06 00:53
I have a serious love/hate with this app. I want to love it because the social aspects are wonderful. However, I never know if it’s truly working as it should. Other podcast apps save progress, this app seems to lose that. I most definitely cannot keep progress between my two phones. It doesn’t always download in a timely manner. Episodes available in other apps for hours still won’t show available. It’s also a battery hog. Bottom line is functionality is great but reliability is questionable.
Great app, lacking one cool feature
by Boris2231 on 2019/09/01 22:57
Please add the ability to change skip back/forward intervals. Ideally so that we could set any number of seconds there. Thanks! Love the app
Tries to force you to accept notifications
by JP Manning on 2019/08/31 05:50
A window opens up asking you to try notifications. No way to close it or use the app. Infuriating!

Why can’t I listen without signing up for
by StellaVon666 on 2019/08/30 12:17
Notifications. I used to listen without a problem. Now, every time I open the app a pop up asking me to sign up for notifications appears and there’s no way to close it. I don’t WANT notifications! So I no longer want breaker either. Sorry to go, but you’ve literally given me no choice.
This is the #1 app? Fake news
by JihmGiant on 2019/08/29 01:30
How can this be the #1 social podcast app when almost no one uses these functions? I’m genuinely surprised at the 4.7 rating with how many bugs I encounter on a daily basis. I wonder if breaker is engaging in fake reviews to boost ratings?!?!? Most of the podcast I want to listen are unavailable and display an audio error message. Loading podcasts is completely u predictable regardless of LTE signal strength. Have been using breaker for a year now and have listened to 1.3k episodes but as of recently (past 3 months) it has become increasingly difficult to use this app. Makes me miss Apples podcast app.
Must listen!
by RalphIsMoma'sBoy on 2019/08/27 19:38
Peter Levin does a wonderful job interviewing Tobias Peggs of Square Roots. I like the relax manner of the dialogue between Peter and Tobias. As an immigrant to US, I can completely agree with Tobias that when you create a business somewhere outside of US and your company doe not succeed, you become a failure with ZERO prospects for the future success. Here, in US, if you fail at something, you can chuck it as a stepping stone and then move on to create a new venture. This is what makes this country incredible!
Great features, but there are massive bugs
by smoothielove on 2019/08/26 17:58
I like many of the features that Breaker offers as well as the layout of the app a lot (more so than other podcast apps I’ve tried), so I use it the most regularly and even recommended it to many of my friends initially. I noticed some bugs early on and thought I could deal with them since I liked the app otherwise, but they’re interfering with my usage of the app so much (and so many more of them are showing up constantly) that I’m thinking of switching to another app. Of the issues include — - Pause/play often mess up my location in a podcast, especially if I use it from my lock screen or from the iPhone menu you get when you swipe up. This is really annoying because I’m forced to scroll through the podcast to refind my location. - When I finish a podcast, it doesn’t get automatically deleted from my playlist even though I have turned on the setting to do so. Sometimes, it doesn’t even automatically undownload from my library, or it doesn’t automatically check the episode as “listened” so I have to manually do these things. - When I add an episode to a playlist, it sometimes doesn’t automatically download and I have to go into the playlist, refresh it so the episode shows up, then wait for it to download. This is really annoying because I sometimes forget to refresh the playlist, and then I’m stuck in a situation without wifi (eg the subway) where I can’t listen to the podcast. I really like the app and want to continue using it, so please fix these features!! From reading the reviews, it seems like these bugs are relatively common, and it would be beneficial for a lot of users for them to be fixed!
How
by pops11235 on 2019/08/26 14:24
Hey , how do I get you off my phone
Glitches but still does what I wanted better
by dzinn82 on 2019/08/18 19:34
Like that show art is updated and held for individual episodes historically (even as new show art changes ) Pause play from lock screen sometimes unresponsive but may be Apple glitch as I started out with problems with default app Also having some issues with playback errors despite content being downloaded already...
It’s ok, needs better functionality
by pintoftomatoes on 2019/08/08 17:19
The feature of being able to share your queue with others is really cool and interesting. My husband and I have been using it to see what each other are listening to. My only issue is I wish there was a way to immediately skip to the next episode in a series without having to navigate all the way back to the show page, scroll around and find the episode I’m listening to, and then play that way. If there was a next episode button it would be 1000x better.
wont pause and play right
by ejshcs on 2019/08/02 18:12
i like this app better than the apple podcast app but every time i pause from the outside of the app (like on the lockscreen) it skips around and i have to scroll to where i was before. its really annoying
Downloading issues
by Gillian Morris on 2019/08/02 18:07
I really want to like Breaker - the social parts are great. However, downloading is tricky - you either have to stream all (which kills my data) or elect to store 10 episodes or more (which uses 500mb+ of space). I’d rather be able to specify how much space I’d be open to using for downloads (overcast makes this very easy) and download one off episodes for offline listening. Furthermore even when I’ve enabled downloads it often seems to not download so when I’m on the subway or an airplane I have nothing to listen to.
Potential but MASSIVE bugs
by JoWoCo on 2019/07/28 20:21
This one of the best designed podcast apps and I like how they integrated a social aspect. But unfortunately the bugs in the core playback experience destroy any other positives. It routinely loses the place of where I am in a podcast. Also the rewind 15 second feature often rewinds to a different spot. It will also create loops while listening. Unfortunately, I’m now searching for another podcast app.

It’s such a real inspiration to hear these podcasts
Has potential but too buggy
by ohiah on 2019/07/11 17:28
I loved Breaker when I first used it! It was pretty and easy to use. Then came the bugs. Oh, the bugs! It would forget my place in an episode. It would play one episode when the UI clearly indicated another episode was playing. It rarely responds to click controls (e.g. pause) when I use my Bose headphones. And it NEVER responds to tap controls on my AirPods. How do I make use of an audio app that’s incompatible with my favorite audio accessories? :( Back to the stock iOS Podcast app for now.
Missing features
by SeecoolGuy on 2019/07/10 02:06
Clipping sounds is one, but customizing the speed per podcast episode is ideal, then a cleanup after listening or after x episodes would also be welcomed. How do you share at a current point in time of an episode?
Yay, Car Play!
by labeano2002 on 2019/07/09 22:13
Glad Breaker is finally recognized on car play! Scrolling buttons aren’t working great through subscriptions though. Have to double tap up and down to get the list to move.
Fabulous Podcasts
by Simone 1948 on 2019/07/07 20:05
User friendly and super sound! Love let’s happy talk!
Much better
by mgamble on 2019/07/01 01:43
So much better than Apple’s podcast app.
Like the app but has a major issue for me
by CaptDS9E on 2019/06/29 02:46
The app is great except for one major bug which makes me have to find another app to try. When pausing podcasts it does not stay where I paused. Sometimes it’s 10 seconds earlier, other times it’s back towards the start. If the issue is ever fixed, I’ll try come back and try it again.
CarPlay Support?
by AppLover54545 on 2019/06/17 12:54

Dope podcast.

4 stars
by Cool kid billu on 2019/06/09 04:31
Usually I use the pocket casts app but always have breaker downloaded on my phone because I like the app but the pocket casts app is just easier to use in my opinion. breaker would get 5 stars but it’s difficult and takes too many “clicks” to find what podcasts I have downloaded. I tried to tweet and ask about that but I couldn’t find an account so I did it here. 4 stars isn’t bad and I totally will still use it as my back up or to just play around with but unfortunately right now pocket casts is more streamlined imo
Censored
by greenmillipede on 2019/06/08 23:48
You claim to have every podcast yet Dr Sears podcast The Vaccine Conversation doesn’t show up in searches. I switched to Spotify since Apple’s built-in podcast app is poor quality.
Amazing
by Raysha26 on 2019/06/08 06:46
Love this podcast app you can interact with other listeners im just not putting it down you can find whatever you want...
Makes podcast listening social and fun
by CaliGal1978 on 2019/06/06 17:58
Breaker is the app that I always wished existed! It’s great for sharing your favorite episodes with friends and finding new podcasts based on what your friends listen too. I also love the skip silence feature! This is the only podcast app I use now.
Simply the Best
by Brandon Queen on 2019/06/05 09:13
I am a podcaster and I use and have access to several different podcast apps. I find Breaker to be among the best. The layout is awesome and the social media side is awesome as well! I just would like to know how I can get more followers and comments on my episode! I’m trying to replace apple podcast that I still like!!
Mute subscription
by Gdsrfhjtsser on 2019/05/29 03:19
I hardly ever write reviews, but the latest update is making me cranky. The fact that “mute subscription” has been removed is enough for me to seek out another podcast app. Otherwise a five star app.
Please stop making the app bad
by Eddie A Rodriguez on 2019/05/15 13:19
I hate that the new update added these lists in Library. It just adds more clicks to get to my podcasts (this type of fragmentation is why I don't stopped using Pocket Casts). Also, the app is absolutely terrible about keeping my place in the podcast. Everything I pause and leave the app, when I relaunch my podcast picks way earlier than where I left off which makes it very frustrating and time consuming to get to back where I was.
Sign up required
by Dfhbcxcbnn on 2019/05/05 16:40
May as well have just made a screen for signup. Other apps do not require this. Is breaker 10x better than other apps? If so, why do people use them? If not, why require sign up!
Too Glitchy
by tribetime on 2019/05/04 14:29
Really interesting app concept. My issue has been that the app constantly loses track of where it is in an episode, so if I pause and then play again, it will start from somewhere well earlier in the episode. This has potential to be the replacement for Apple Podcasts, but there is work to be done.
Haven for trolls and spammers
by Dave_Conrey on 2019/05/01 20:37
Deleting this app immediately cause they refuse to give users any control over who can follow or contact them. I’ve had a troll sending me messages for months, and despite Breaker’s support telling me they’ve handled the situation, the guy still persists, and is now creating multiple accounts to spam my inbox and drop messages on my podcast. Now the support team won’t respond to emails, and have stopped responding to messages on Twitter. They obviously have no concern for users, so I’m done.
Best app out there
by kpinmi on 2019/04/09 12:48
I have tried out so many podcast apps and always come back to Breaker. I think it is more logical to understand where to maneuver in the app to play and move around in the app. If it only enabled the ability to create MORE THAN ONE playlist it would be the perfect podcast app for me! I use more than one podcast app to have more than one playlist.

A delight
by MHShockey33 on 2019/03/27 22:20
Bless you Breaker folks. I had yet to find a podcast app I like. I am a podcast power user and a software developer. This app is so perfect for me I might cry. One thousand times thanks.

Version 0.8.12
by Myrrd on 2019/03/19 15:39
Just updated the app and it no longer works at all, it also deleted all (hundreds) of my previously downloaded episodes. Just keep getting a pop up that says; “Request Failed with Error: Too many requests” Not sure what you guys did with this last update but this app used to work flawlessly for years, but it’s now unusable.
Amazing little podcast app!
by marcopolo92 on 2019/03/16 04:01
Love it - keep up the great work!
Probably one of the best podcast apps
by Varadh Jain on 2019/03/04 07:55
Really enjoy using breaker for numerous reasons: 1. The effort into the UI/UX is visible. 2. One of the only apps with the “mute subscription” option 3. Developing social features. Can do a lot more especially with recommendations. Some improvements I hope we see in the app: 1. An iPad app 2. Ability to clip and save sounds (and their transcriptions) similar to how Audible let’s you do with Audible 3. an all-in-one subscription for premium audio. assuming that they give the publishers of content the ability to opt-into or out of the subscription catalogue
So far, a five
by ZEPHYR INC. on 2019/03/03 18:07
I came to breaker from iPhone podcasts. For some reason iPhone podcast carries with it excessive data which constantly overloaded my phone. I have found that I, so far, do not have that problem with this app. ‘Nuff said.
I love Breaker!
by mcfeisty on 2019/02/25 18:07
I've been using breaker for quite a while now, over a year maybe and I love it! There's only one thing I'd wish for is more control over my Playlist (it's possible that there are more controls and I'm not finding them--if that's the case, someone feel free to let me know) but other than that breaker is perfection. 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
Appreciation
by The Art Of Base on 2019/02/23 17:07
I definitely appreciated this podcast. It reminded my out home so much. To hear you and Terrence collaborate together and share your story definitely made me reflect on how we grew up. Keep doing your thing big bro. I love you. Peace!
Some problems-
by The real Mangaman13 on 2019/02/22 20:12
If you delete an episode via the downloads tab, it also deletes the episode immediately below it. Also sometimes when you search for a podcast, after searching the search bar isn't there anymore and you can't search again. The scrolling lags too, and typing comments is almost impossible because of the lag when you do that, but that might be because I have an iphone 5.
Privacy Issue
by Wicked_Blonde on 2019/02/14 16:39
I was really starting to enjoy the app when I downloaded it. The layout and ease of use was what I’ve been looking for. What I didn’t like and what made me delete this app, seeing my photos. There isn’t a setting in the breaker app or apple settings that lets you restrict access. If that were to change, I might get the app again.
Sign up shouldn’t be required
by Basketkid9 on 2019/02/14 08:22
Hey Breaker Team, I found you by googling “social podcast app”. I was looking for an app that provided a platform for discussion around podcasts, similar to what YouTube does for videos. I was excited to experiment with your app, but quickly disappointed to see that the launch screen prompted me to create an account to use the app. Putting any gate in front of a potential user is a bad idea if you want them to discover the product you have to offer. Imagine if YouTube mandated an account to use YouTube; it would’ve never become YouTube. I think you should limit the sign up requirement to being a participant in the community, since that actually makes sense. I can’t remember the last time I left an app review, but as a developer myself working on an app I care about, I know personally that this feedback is something I’d want to know on the other end. I’m happy to update the rating in the future.
I love this app
by Yair S on 2019/02/08 16:59
Breaker is the future of podcasts. -The team is responsive to user feedback -The app is beautiful -Engagement with creators is easy and natural -Uncovering interesting episodes is simple -You can follow family, friends, or even podcasters you love to see what they’re listening to
Play/pause functionality selectively works
by fredis_b on 2019/02/06 20:25
I put my phone down and it will keep playing even after hitting pause. UI is beautiful and has all the podcasts I listen to on Apple

Not Fixed
by HannahBaileyAnderson on 2019/01/11 17:09
I thought the problem was fixed but it’s still there: pausing in the app isn’t consistently connected to the pausing shortcut.
I like
by Toddep23 on 2019/01/10 08:51
There needs to be a way to browse podcasts by category. Please add this feature.
Easy to organize my playlist!
by MarionV on 2019/01/09 23:04
This app is so easy to use. I especially like that I can easily set up a playlist for when I have a long drive in front of me. I hate how hard it is to organize my playlist with the Apple podcast app.
Audio controls missing for XR?
by vpat93 on 2019/01/08 03:29
Great collection of podcasts. Just one thing that I found odd was missing audio controls within the iPhone XR app. It was fine in 8 plus.
Their support is awesome
by Emallin on 2019/01/07 08:10
See My original review below. yesterday I left a review of two stars Minaj game because I thought you couldn’t reorder play list. I also sent email to the company. Only 10 hours after I sent email, Jacob replied w info on how to easily do it and where reorder button was located. Let me repeat: In just 10 hours, he replied w info and solved my complaint. I can’t get my dr to call me back so quickly! High marks to their customer support AND App! Loving it! THANK YOU! E “So surprised I can’t reorder the playlist in custom mode. Otherwise I would have rated 5 stars. Disappointed”
Finally, a podcast player that works for me!
by Barefooted Papa on 2019/01/05 18:18
I’ve been through a half-dozen different players since Apple made the big change to theirs. All of them had confusing user interfaces and were organized in ways that didn’t make sense. Then I tried Breaker, and voila, it was exactly what I was looking for and more. Many thanks to the developers! Great job!
Loved Breaker but Can’t anymore
by _rsamuels on 2019/01/04 07:26
I loved Breaker and used it since the ProductHunt debut but the new UI is horrible. I was looking forward to the next update but this is not at all what users want. It’s confusing and hard to use. I need the old Breaker back.
I've been waiting for this
by jonstieg on 2018/12/29 03:14
It's an amazing idea and it will only get better with time.
Better than Apple Podcasts or Spotify
by Elliottttttttttttttttttt on 2018/12/21 02:43
i would reccomend it to my friends if I had any
Good app.
by bobmcgee on 2018/12/20 13:30
Enjoy the layout and UI. Only thing missing is CarPlay functionality. I still use PocketCasts because of this missing feature.
Better than the Apple Podcast app
by Laura Hawk Design on 2018/12/17 21:01
When I got a new phone I was switching from an Android back to Apple. I was really bummed I’d be losing my place on all the podcasts I listen to. When I got in and started using the apple podcast app I HATED it. Can’t mark anything as listened or sort from old to new if you’re starting a show from the beginning. Breaker solves all this and has a delightful UI. Well done ❤️
The only podcast app you need!
by NAS77Y on 2018/12/16 01:21
As an early user I’ve seen this app go from good to great. This app lives on my front screen and gets used daily to explore new podcasts, see what my friends are consuming (edu) and listen to my favorite podcasts. I love the social aspect of breaker too! Being able to engage in conversations around podcasts is super!
Enlightening
by Miss phillip on 2018/12/12 02:29
Very informative, helped me with deciding what I was going through
Love it
by Felonious Punlk on 2018/12/06 23:43
I’ve tried them all. When I had android I used Podcast Addict and loved it. I switched to iOS a couple years ago and never found I replacement player I liked as well until I found Breaker. Dark mode is beautiful and easy to use. Seems like the social aspect is still developing. I’m looking forward to seeing where it goes
Pause and resume
by prideandjoey on 2018/12/03 12:54
Whenever I pause a podcast and come back to it, the app will start the playback anywhere from 5 seconds to 30 minutes before where I last left off.
Buggy
by Barely-fit on 2018/12/01 15:13
Presents the data well, especially like all the ordering options. Unfortunately the core functionality of playing the podcasts is buggy. Especially through Bluetooth

I want this app to be great
by tttuckerrr on 2018/11/24 18:21
I've been using this almost everyday for the past ~4 months, and I have to say I loved it at first. But recently the app has gotten worse week over week, to the point that it's simply not usable anymore. Some of the issues I've had: - looses track of my place in podcast. Sometime its off by 5-10 minutes, other times - especially if it's been more than a couple of hours since pausing - it will lose my place entirely and start from the beginning. - fails to fetch most recent episodes - 500 errors when refreshing feed - streams podcast that it says was downloaded ( I tested this several times by turning all data off with an episode I downloaded in the app and it won't play) - play/pause button state gets flipped occasionally - the button will show paused and actually be playing, vise versa, etc. - app will just crash from time to time For now, I will reluctantly return to the Apple podcast app...but I'll keep an eye on future updates hopefully fixing these bugs that render the app unusable.
Best political show on the air
by AlienAnima on 2018/11/24 03:41
I live in MA and I LOVE this show. I wish there was an MA version. Listening to people who disagree make jokes and argue respectfully is what this world needs more of. These people are AMAZING!!
Relevant and delightful
by d2burke on 2018/11/21 17:42
Love the relevant notifs for new episodes. Love the delightful confetti feedback. Well designed, very intuitive.
Room for improvement, but still way better than Apple’s podcast app
by iTif on 2018/11/15 18:52
Give me the podcast all Apple had out originally, and I’d be happy. Breaker is a great alternative to the app that Apple ruined- all my episodes download when they should and are easy to locate. My issue lies with being able to delete an episode after listening. The episode “disappears” from the playlist and you have to go into subscriptions to find it, and you still can’t do much with it there. If you don’t listen to all (or any) of an episode, it remains in the playlist, and you can swipe left to remove it from your playlist....but it’s not deleted from your phone (exists in subscription area). Not sure if I’m missing something that’s right in front of me, or if this was just overlooked. A welcomed feature would be to be able to share an episode with people not on Breaker- sometimes I would email myself the episode to know to come back to it, and sometimes i would like to share it with others (who don’t use Breaker). Being able to create multiple playlists would be a bonus, too!
Not reliable
by bcdady on 2018/11/14 20:25
I love the concept and want to make this my new primary podcast app, but I’ve experienced too many instances of the playback position jumping around, excessive latency in fast-forward and rewind controls to rely on it. I sure hope it behaves more predictably soon.
Loved this for awhile, but download issues continue
by Ellwheeler on 2018/11/12 13:49
I love the concept of this app and have used it for some time. The download function has bugs and has for some time — it is not always actually DL’d even when it says it is, and sometimes upon opening won’t actually DL new episodes even when forced. Also have issues with Skipping forward toward the end of a podcast — sometimes it will skip to the next show in queue, auto-archiving the episode I was trying to listen to.
Runs awfully
by Weepingangel13 on 2018/11/08 05:08
I only use it because there’s one podcast I can’t get on m other app. The app doesn’t always save my listening progress, forcing me to try to remember how far along I got and scroll back and forth until I find the right place. I subscribe to a show, close the app at some point, and when I go back I have 0 subscriptions. Every. Time. And it often doesn’t play a show even when there’s wifi.
Like not love yet
by eliastortillas on 2018/10/24 04:13
App is too slow and crashes sometimrs. Deleted apple podcasts because downloading customization was stupid. Love the interface! Please just make it faster and it will be great. Five star ratings bc I want more people to try this app. Don’t let me down!!
Playback issues on iOS beta
by tobinkaestner on 2018/10/18 05:13

The Model Health Show With Shawn Stevenson
by Tigersky3 on 2018/10/17 19:53
I probably listen to this show more than any other... such fantastic education about health and wellness, and everyone I know should subscribe to TMHS.
This could be great but....
by cmj05 on 2018/10/17 15:31
I love the concept behind breaker but its lack of CarPlay and now Shortcuts hurts it. I’d be willing to pay to unlock these features.
All Podcasts NOT available on Breaker
by the Real KiltedGnome on 2018/10/09 16:48
Despite Breaker advertising All Podcasts Available, I have found this to be untrue. One of my favorite Podcasts just celebrated their 500th episode (each episode is over 1 1/2 hours long), yet upon searching for it in Breaker, it does not appear. I was able to import it from the Overcast app into Breaker. I have used Overcast for years and started using Castro about two months ago. I really want to like Breaker as a replacement due to its “social” aspect, but I now wonder how many other podcasts I will miss out on due to search results saying “not found”.
Fussy
by CCAD student on 2018/08/07 07:03
I really wanted to like Breaker—and to be fair, the social aspects of the app are the closest I’ve seen to what I want out of a podcast app. People don’t actually seem to be using those tools to be social yet, but that could just be an in progress network effect/critical mass thing. I run into too many bugs and confusing situations for me to recommend it to friends, though. My main complaint is that downloading episodes ahead of time rarely works out, which makes the app all but useless for me. I’m never certain when I open the app if I’m going to be able to listen to podcasts today.

Great but has some frustrating bugs.
by El Jimmy Rustler on 2019/09/30 12:31
Great app all around. Two things that could use some more work are the search function and more bug removal. The search itself isn’t the worst but sometimes it takes almost until the last letter of a podcast title for it to find the correct one, not very intuitive. The bugs can be a bit frustrating, some of the worst ones I get are toward the end of episodes that have been in a playlist for a while, they often will loop at random intervals. Three minutes will go by then that same 3 minutes will play once more. The absolute worst however is that your progress on an episode will often get deleted. This isn’t normally a huge issue, but with shows like Hardcore History that sometimes have nearly 3 hour episodes having to routinely scrub through to find my position is aggravating.
Better than most
by eligovt on 2018/08/25 00:29
Switched to iPhone recently and have been having trouble finding a good podcast app (which seems absurd). This one is the best I’ve found but still has some annoying quirks. I like to download episodes since I travel a lot. This app adds episodes to my playlist, but it doesn’t always download them. Even when I force it to download and watch it complete the download, I will go back later and it will show that it isn’t downloaded. Where does it go? I just watched it complete the download. Frustrating! Also, I listen to most podcasts oldest to newest, but a few current event podcasts I want to listen to when they are released. This seems to confuse the app. Why is this so difficult?
Must listen!

Peter Levin does a wonderful job interviewing Tobias Peggs of Square Roots. I like the relax manner of the dialogue between Peter and Tobias. As an immigrant to US, I can completely agree with Tobias that when you create a business somewhere outside of US and your company doe not succeed, you become a failure with ZERO prospects for the future success. Here, in US, if you fail at something, you can chuck it as a stepping stone and then move on to create a new venture. This is what makes this country incredible!
Best Podcast App Available!
by CWB427 on 2017/12/02 13:40
I’ve spent years bouncing between Podcast Addict, iTunes Podcast, and Soundcloud to have access to and manage dozens of subscriptions. Breaker has eliminated the need for multiple apps. It has also been a huge time-saver by allowing me to import all of my previous subscriptions from other apps, creating a streamlined and customizable playlist I rarely have to touch, and the wonderful skip silences feature! Last but definitely not least, the social aspect of Breaker is second to none. No other app offers the same level of user-to-user engagement. Don’t believe me? Then download it and send me a message telling me I’m wrong ;)
It’s ok, needs better functionality
by pintoftomatoes on 2019/08/08 17:19
The feature of being able to share your queue with others is really cool and interesting. My husband and I have been using it to see what each other are listening to. My only issue is I wish there was a way to immediately skip to the next episode in a series without having to navigate all the way back to the show page, scroll around and find the episode I’m listening to, and then play that way. If there was a next episode button it would be 1000x better.

4 stars
by Cool kid billu on 2019/06/09 04:31
Usually I use the pocket casts app but always have breaker downloaded on my phone because I like the app but the pocket casts app is just easier to use in my opinion. breaker would get 5 stars but it’s difficult and takes too many “clicks” to find what podcasts I have downloaded. I tried to tweet and ask about that but I couldn’t find an account so I did it here. 4 stars isn’t bad and I totally will still use it as my back up or to just play around with but unfortunately right now pocket casts is more streamlined imo
Great innovations!
by jweeces on 2018/09/17 23:58
I love the many innovative features this podcast app has! There is a simple, not overbearing, social aspect. I love the recommendations it gives based on listening patterns! Some are obvious but others are not. What the app needs is better audio quality and more easily customized playlists. I’m a podcast junkie. I’m used to fiddling with podcast apps to get them to do what I want. There were a few things in regards to playlists and selections that took me a while to figure out. Less experienced people would walk away.

Good idea, mediocre execution
by chellllll on 2018/04/07 06:44
Things I like: skip silences, finding out about popular episodes, seeing what my friends are listening to Things I dislike: extremely buggy / low quality (skip ahead is unreliable, sometimes crashes the app and removes the current episode from my playlist; episodes don’t always register as listened; “play” and “pause” doesn’t work reliably — or the symbol doesn’t reflect the truth, I’ve even heard the same episode being played twice SIMULTANEOUSLY but not in sync, and couldn’t figure out how to control it— could only control one of them), episodes recommended are too tech/VC centric
Simple is beautiful!
by Sorenrt on 2018/07/19 02:08
... and Breaker is exactly that; simple and beautiful. By adding the social aspects to podcasts, it gives a whole new dimension to Podcasts. Now I get to follow my friends from Facebook and idols from Twitter, listening to what they love to listen too, and seeing their favorite episodes - there is a gold mine of inspiration waiting for you from as soon as you instal the app. Oh, and then I heard the vision of the app from founders; cool features on the horizon!
Social meets Podcasts, Finally!
by KernelKong on 2018/07/17 19:55
If done correctly, podcasting is an exceptional medium for sharing great ideas in a very personal way, and production value is so good nowadays. Enter Breaker, a great app that allows you to easily share and discover podcasts in an intuitive way, not to mention the app is packed with great tools; such as, the ability to follow influencers and see what they’re listening too, and the ability to discuss episodes, just to mention two great tools.
Glitches but still does what I wanted better
by dzinn82 on 2019/08/18 19:34
Like that show art is updated and held for individual episodes historically (even as new show art changes ) Pause play from lock screen sometimes unresponsive but may be Apple glitch as I started out with problems with default app Also having some issues with playback errors despite content being downloaded already...
Breaker: or how I learned to stop worrying and love podcasts
by Josh K NZ on 2017/11/05 17:01
Before Breaker I barely listened to podcasts as other apps, especially the Apple podcast app, were UX nightmares and didn't help me explore the great content that already exists. Breaker has been a joy to use, not only with the best design and UX of all the players I have tried, but also with great suggestions and social features which help me find amazing episodes and fantastic shows. Thank you Breaker!
Best podcast app
by DazShayd on 2018/09/16 04:03
Made the switch from overcast because the audio kept crashing; this app runs all my podcasts smooth as butter, and the only thing I miss about overcast was the ability to make multiple playlists, although having the one breaker playlist has forced me to trim down my podcast subscriptions to only the ones I really enjoy, so that’s ok. The social aspect seems nice but honestly I’m just happy it works so well.
Everything you want in a podcast app
by PacoHope on 2018/07/12 21:52
I have been using breaker for about 6 months and it is brilliant. Skipping silence, downloading things in advance, deleting automatically, sharing with people right in the app. So many great features. I tried using the built in podcast app on my phone. It was awful. I thought I’d never listen to podcasts if that was the app I had to use. But breaker is great. Seriously not one complaint.
Great app, great customer service
by MSchaub on 2017/11/11 00:26
Update: I still love Breaker. Everything I said remains true. I've been so happy with the listening experience on Breaker. Best app I've used for podcasts. And when there have been occasional bugs, they've been fixed promptly and with consistent updates on the issues through social media and/or email. Really impressed with their crew.
Love /Hate
by Tanney9 on 2019/09/06 00:53
I have a serious love/hate with this app. I want to love it because the social aspects are wonderful. However, I never know if it’s truly working as it should. Other podcast apps save progress, this app seems to lose that. I most definitely cannot keep progress between my two phones. It doesn’t always download in a timely manner. Episodes available in other apps for hours still won’t show available. It’s also a battery hog. Bottom line is functionality is great but reliability is questionable.
Fix downloads
by NerfHerder8472 on 2019/09/27 14:12
I have to say I really like the app for a lot of what it offers. I prefer the download and sort options compared to the default Apple app. However, if I am listening to a podcast as it is being downloaded to my device, and something interrupts my internet connection (the whole reason I download them in the first place) I lose the entire download and I can’t start playing the podcast again until I delete the partial download and restart the app...
Downloading issues
by Gillian Morris on 2019/08/02 18:07
I really want to like Breaker - the social parts are great. However, downloading is tricky - you either have to stream all (which kills my data) or elect to store 10 episodes or more (which uses 500mb+ of space). I’d rather be able to specify how much space I’d be open to using for downloads (overcast makes this very easy) and download one off episodes for offline listening. Furthermore even when I’ve enabled downloads it often seems to not download so when I’m on the subway or an airplane I have nothing to listen to.
This is the #1 app? Fake news
by JihmGiant on 2019/08/29 01:30
How can this be the #1 social podcast app when almost no one uses these functions? I’m genuinely surprised at the 4.7 rating with how many bugs I encounter on a daily basis. I wonder if breaker is engaging in fake reviews to boost ratings?!?!? Most of the podcast I want to listen are unavailable and display an audio error message. Loading podcasts is completely u predictable regardless of LTE signal strength. Have been using breaker for a year now and have listened to 1.3k episodes but as of recently (past 3 months) it has become increasingly difficult to use this app. Makes me miss Apples podcast app.
Finally, a podcast player that works for me!
by Barefooted Papa on 2019/01/05 18:18
I’ve been through a half-dozen different players since Apple made the big change to theirs. All of them had confusing user interfaces and were organized in ways that didn’t make sense. Then I tried Breaker, and voila, it was exactly what I was looking for and more. Many thanks to the developers! Great job!
The only podcast app you need!

Looks good, works poorly
by dameyawn on 2019/10/10 01:22
Really wanted to love this app and recommended to many friends early on. Unfortunately lots of issues: - slow interface esp with a bigger library - slower podcast download speeds than other apps - streaming of podcast effectively doesn't work - recently downloaded 20 gigs of podcasts while on data (instead of WiFi) internationally even though the profile setting has this turned off (costing me $40+ and super slow speeds on google fi thereafter) - Bluetooth controls work inconsistently or not at all - app locks up on average every 20 minutes of listening - search doesn't work well (try searching for "b&n" for Barnes and noble podcast) - lock screen shows playing even when paused or vice versa - location is podcast is often lost forcing you to listen from an earlier point or starting over .... and more
Some problems-
by The real Mangaman13 on 2019/02/22 20:12
If you delete an episode via the downloads tab, it also deletes the episode immediately below it. Also sometimes when you search for a podcast, after searching the search bar isn't there anymore and you can't search again. The scrolling lags too, and typing comments is almost impossible because of the lag when you do that, but that might be because I have an iphone 5.
I love Breaker!
by mcfeisty on 2019/02/25 18:07
I've been using breaker for quite a while now, over a year maybe and I love it! There's only one thing I'd wish for is more control over my Playlist (it's possible that there are more controls and I'm not finding them--if that's the case, someone feel free to let me know) but other than that breaker is perfection. 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
Too buggy
by assbot9000 on 2019/10/03 08:17
Pros: Playback speed and smart skip functions work well. Cons: Every time I try to download episodes ahead of time when I know I won't have internet access, the app will lose the episode somehow despite having finished the download already. Listening to episodes frequently crashes the app. The progress bar for the episode always freezes, so I don't know how far into the episode I am after pausing it. Social aspect is okay, minus the fact that nobody is really using it.
Breaker is the best
by Angry Dwane on 2018/07/28 15:18
You don’t realize what’s possible until you use Breaker. You can see what friends are listening to and recommending. You can follow guests across podcasts. You can easily send friends podcasts you think they’d enjoy. It changes and improves the podcast experience. Next level highly recommend!
😥
by Frank Jr.'s Boy on 2017/11/16 00:03
The app is so beautiful. Everything about it is near perfect. Except that is crashes constantly. The most important function of a podcast app is the ability to listen to podcasts, and right now this app is failing. I'm confident they will fix the crashing issues though; when they do I'll update my review.
Has potential but too buggy
by ohiah on 2019/07/11 17:28
I loved Breaker when I first used it! It was pretty and easy to use. Then came the bugs. Oh, the bugs! It would forget my place in an episode. It would play one episode when the UI clearly indicated another episode was playing. It rarely responds to click controls (e.g. pause) when I use my Bose headphones. And it NEVER responds to tap controls on my AirPods. How do I make use of an audio app that’s incompatible with my favorite audio accessories? :( Back to the stock iOS Podcast app for now.
Great app for discovering new episodes
by gullx on 2018/01/09 03:09
I often ask people what podcasts they like, and wondered why there wasn’t a way to see this info instantly in the iPhone Podcast app. Breaker solved this problem, and other usability issues with its easy to use social app. It works! Also useful for me to track what episodes I listened to.
Please stop making the app bad
by Eddie A Rodriguez on 2019/05/15 13:19
I hate that the new update added these lists in Library. It just adds more clicks to get to my podcasts (this type of fragmentation is why I don't stopped using Pocket Casts). Also, the app is absolutely terrible about keeping my place in the podcast. Everything I pause and leave the app, when I relaunch my podcast picks way earlier than where I left off which makes it very frustrating and time consuming to get to back where I was.
Simply the Best
by Brandon Queen on 2019/06/05 09:13
I am a podcaster and I use and have access to several different podcast apps. I find Breaker to be among the best. The layout is awesome and the social media side is awesome as well! I just would like to know how I can get more followers and comments on my episode! I’m trying to replace apple podcast that I still like!!
Best app out there
by kpinmi on 2019/04/09 12:48
I have tried out so many podcast apps and always come back to Breaker. I think it is more logical to understand where to maneuver in the app to play and move around in the app. If it only enabled the ability to create MORE THAN ONE playlist it would be the perfect podcast app for me! I use more than one podcast app to have more than one playlist.
Useless for setting up playlists for long trips
by How Kola on 2018/04/27 13:18
I like to listen to podcasts on long trips, downloading a variety of them so I have them even when I lose Internet access. Breaker will — for no reason whatsoever — delete podcasts that I have manually downloaded. I’ll spend time downloading the episodes I want and then when I’m on the road I go to play them and they are not on local storage. There is no workaround. It is utter nonsense. I thought I’d found the perfect podcast app, but until this is addressed it is absolutely worthless.
My most used app altogether !
by Clorenceau on 2018/02/05 05:14
Slowly but surely, Breaker has imposed itself as my most used app daily, weekly, and monthly even! I just love to track what my friends are listening and sharing my favourite shows with them. I just can’t think of a better way to discover relevant audio content for me
Makes podcast listening social and fun
by CaliGal1978 on 2019/06/06 17:58
Breaker is the app that I always wished existed! It’s great for sharing your favorite episodes with friends and finding new podcasts based on what your friends listen too. I also love the skip silence feature! This is the only podcast app I use now.
Love this app
by Niamante on 2018/09/21 10:27
I listen to a lot of podcasts but I tend to listen to the same ones. I like this app because i get good suggestions from what other people like. My only complaint at this time is the ease at which to make custom playlists. I hope that will be fixed sometime soon!
Their support is awesome
by Emallin on 2019/01/07 08:10
See My original review below. yesterday I left a review of two stars Minaj game because I thought you couldn’t reorder play list. I also sent email to the company. Only 10 hours after I sent email, Jacob replied w info on how to easily do it and where reorder button was located. Let me repeat: In just 10 hours, he replied w info and solved my complaint. I can’t get my dr to call me back so quickly! High marks to their customer support AND App! Loving it! THANK YOU! E “So surprised I can’t reorder the playlist in custom mode. Otherwise I would have rated 5 stars. Disappointed”
Amazing app for podcasts
by Penguingirl627 on 2017/12/22 15:19
I use this literally every day. Breaker sends out weekly recap emails, and I consistently listen to podcasts on this app at least 14 hours a week. It’s easy to use, and great for discovering new podcasts that you may not have heard about before. Highly recommend!
Haven for trolls and spammers

Deleting this app immediately cause they refuse to give users any control over who can follow or contact them. I’ve had a troll sending me messages for months, and despite Breaker’s support telling me they’ve handled the situation, the guy still persists, and is now creating multiple accounts to spam my inbox and drop messages on my podcast. Now the support team won’t respond to emails, and have stopped responding to messages on Twitter. They obviously have no concern for users, so I’m done.
Probably one of the best podcast apps

Really enjoy using breaker for numerous reasons: 1. The effort into the UI/UX is visible. 2. One of the only apps with the “mute subscription” option 3. Developing social features. Can do a lot more especially with recommendations. Some improvements I hope we see in the app: 1. An iPad app 2. Ability to clip and save sounds (and their transcriptions) similar to how Audible let’s you do with Audible 3. an all-in-one subscription for premium audio. assuming that they give the publishers of content the ability to opt-into or out of the subscription catalogue
Better than the original one.

I have to say this is more dynamic and more socializing and just smoother than the original one. Apple team are just too conservative in design. I would not go back unless they have a total new and better design.
Easy to organize my playlist!

This app is so easy to use. I especially like that I can easily set up a playlist for when I have a long drive in front of me. I hate how hard it is to organize my playlist with the Apple podcast app.
Like the app but has a major issue for me

The app is great except for one major bug which makes me have to find another app to try. When pausing podcasts it does not stay where I paused. Sometimes it’s 10 seconds earlier, other times it’s back towards the start. If the issue is ever fixed, I’ll try come back and try it again.
Like not love yet

App is too slow and crashes sometimrs. Deleted apple podcasts because downloading customization was stupid. Love the interface! Please just make it faster and it will be great. Five star ratings bc I want more people to try this app. Don’t let me down!!
