2. Troubleshooting. I have a problem...

If you have a major problem, for example, suddenly nothing plays or downloads, Restart your device by powering it down and try again.

If you don't see new episodes or get duplicates after refresh, go to More > Settings > Podcast Settings and change "Type of Feed Update" to "Full Scan" for this podcast. Also make sure there is no filter set on the Episodes screen. Tap Filter button, then "Show All".

If one particular podcast gives you trouble, Check if it works in iTunes. If it fails in iTunes as well, the problem is usually with the podcast itself.

When contacting support, always include the name of podcast and episode you have trouble with, and provide enough details for us to re-create the problem.

3. Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why can't PodCruncher manage episodes I have in Music App?
A: 3rd party apps like PodCruncher don't have enough permissions to do it effectively.

Q: How to subscribe to a podcast if I can't find it by searching or browsing?
A: 1. Google the podcast name, find exact spelling, and use it to search again in PodCruncher and iTunes. 2. If still not found, try to find the URL of the podcast feed on the website of podcast author or ask the author to email you the URL. A valid RSS or Atom feed is an XML file that describes podcast and its episodes. 3. If found, the URL can be added by tapping + and then "Add URL/Import OPML" on the Podcasts screen.
