    After downloading the latest update, I can no longer download any podcasts. The download icon briefly changes to the “rotating arrows” but nothing happens.

    This makes the app useless to me, and I really liked the convenience beforehand. (Android 4.4.2, Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini)

      We did make changes in this release to how we store data for custom download locations. Do you use a custom download location in the settings? If so it might be best to try picking a new one. Regardless, can you tap Report Problem so we check out the log file?

      Please update to the latest version as the download issue has been fixed for older Android devices.
