I love this app, but for some reason it will update/download/delete episodes constantly throughout the day, even though I've set it to only do so 1x/day, down to 1x/week. The constant notifications are so irritating I'm actually actively looking for a similar app which doesn't bother me unless I want it to, on my actual preferred schedule. Other than that it's brilliant, fairly intuitive for such a full-featured app, and I especially love being able to set playback speed as surgically as I like!

Every update is worse. Any time I scroll Instagram or get a call or do anything where sound is involved, once that ends and the podcast starts back, sound starts going out unless I wake the phone up. That resolves it briefly, but it keeps going out (back briefly each time I wake the phone) until I unlock the phone so I can close/ reopen the app. I tried to support an app that doesn't seem as big as the podcast conglomerates or Amazon, but they can't keep up the basic functionality reliably.

To assist with this issue, it would be helpful to have a little bit more information. Can you send any screenshots related to the issue along with your device details at tech@podcastrepublic.net? Thanks.

Update: Lately, this app has been extremely glitchy. It will randomly stop the podcast in the middle of listening, without giving any warnings or errors to explain why it stopped. At first I thought it was an issue with my headphones, but I can listen to music using other apps just fine. These interruptions can be as little as seconds in between, or 10 minutes. It is impossible to listen to even a short 20 minute episode this way. I have given up and started using another app.

The issue is due to the battery optimizations. You can go to your Android Settings to exclude this app from battery optimizations and background restrictions. Please check out https://dontkillmyapp.com for more info.
