Update: Since my review yesterday, Podbean addressed the issue and fixed it. Great job guys! Was working fine before the last update. Now I'm getting notifications for the same episode every minute or two. Right now I have 46 notifications for one episode...
I originally installed it to listen to one podcast but ended up finding several more that I love! Sometimes if I listen to a few episodes in a row the podcast starts buffering but even if you close it the app doesn't lose your progress in the episode which I find very handy.
Originally I gave Podbean 5 stars. But since the app was updated and now automatically deletes podcasts, even if I want to keep them on my device, an obvious feature that the previous version included, I am unimpressed. Looking for an alternative podcast app.
Latest update has changed this from the best app to the worst app. Podcasts no longer download automatically and it didn't even show a new episode of Pod Save America was available until I clicked into the pod. The adverts are now intrusive and take up a massive part of the screen. Until this update, I was a 5 star reviewer and would recommend it to people all over social media. Now it's a one star review. Poor change made seemingly for solely financial reasons. Not good enough.
I wish I had time to search and find something better to listen to podcasts. It all off the sudden stopped downloading automatically. I frequently get a weird error and the podcast won't play. Worst of all the search function is AWFUL. I usually have to do a Google search to find something on podbean, and I am good at internet searches generally but this app can't find anything!
This is by far the worst app i have ever been forced to download. Either make the browser work again or fix the app but at the moment nothing works right
Episode notification will be more timely
