    "Not only does this app have the worst possible ratings, it charges you for getting even moderate feature upgrades. Go elsewhere and get a podcast aggregator for free that does the same thing, but better."

    "Podbay seems like a promising product overall. I liked the interface as well as the organization provided and the graphics while not stellar are quite good for this. I would definitely consider choosing this over a competitor's product."

    "It’s new and requires no membership, has no nag screens, no ads and no hidden agendas. KISS rules the day and it saves favorite pods, shows and shows in progress without ever asking you to fill out a single form. it’s not as polished as the big money players in this space but it’s not half bad if your goal is to enjoy podcasts anonymously without being upsold by a site trying to gain members or gain access to your wallet. It also supports multiple themes and has more features coming soon.... I know because I built it :-) Chris"
