I purchased the full version a few days ago. However, a few hours ago I noticed that the app was gone from the store. I was hoping there maybe was a new version around the corner, you know the podcast app to end all podcast apps, but now the app won't even load anymore. Does anyone have details?

Dev tweeted few days back saying an update has been submitted and should be available in the store soon (pending MSFT approval). It was pulled due to frequent crashes in the most recent version, esp when it is blocked in the list of background apps.

Nevermind, its called podcatcher. I wasn't sure if you meant "a podcatcher app" was pulled from store ...
That's all we need is the few mediocre podcast apps that ARE in the store to start disappearing.
Why haven't we seen a podcatching app like doggcatcher for android or Dr. Podder for webos ... Personally, this OS blows those away, but something with some major features like multiselect or one-touch downloading or deleting or Continuous playback ... None of these have been added to any podcast app I've seen yet. Its awful that the built in podcasting doesn't do downloading and management well enough, but we can't move past the "press and hold to wait for a submenu to download" for only ONE episode at a time?? Its 2013!!!
sorry, just frustrating ...

I've been really happy with Podcast Lounge recently. The major downside to it is that it doesn't check for new eps in the background and therefore doesn't notify you of new episodes either. I'm going to stick with it for a bit to see if the devs are committed to quickly building it out.Current devices: HTC Windows Phone 8X (blue, unlocked VZW)
