I'm new to podcasts mostly because I thought The Hey we're an Apple thing.. I never have owned any Apple product so I always skipped them all. This app is great and easy to use. I still can't find Hi Tech podcasts or any audio books like podcasts.
I've been using Podbean for years, but since the latest update it's become incredibly difficult to do the main thing this app is supposed to do: play podcasts. It is nearly impossible to select a different episode to listen to while the current one is playing. By selecting a different episode, it will just take you to the now playing screen of the episode you're already listening to. The ads are enormous. I also miss being able to rewind and fast forward on the lock screen.
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.
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...
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.
What's with the ads? They are large and intrusive. Hard to navigate around them while driving and listening. I may delete the app after two years and many podcasts shares.
Episode notification will be more timely
