Podcast App: Free & Offline Podcasts by Player FM users want to be able to find new episodes

Player FM is highly graded in general, though they have some flaws that should be altered. New episodes are sometimes not displayed whilst downloaded episodes simply disappear. The constant subscription nagging is also annoying and customers are also confounded as to why the app is so slow.
