I've used this app for a bit now and it's pretty good. I never encountered an ad or at least rarely did until recently. Their ads are loud and obtrusive, do no transition smoothly between what I'm listening to or even other ads, and are honestly making me hate the app. The ads are so sudden and loud that it startles me as I drive, which isn't safe for me or other drivers. The ads also cause what I'm listening to to end early or skip parts with no way of fixing and going back. Please fix!

User interface is ok, but could be better. While on an episode page if you hit the back button it doesn't take you back one page to your following page to choose a different episode, instead you are taken to the home page. This is agitating to me as you now have to go back to your following page, then the show page, then you can choose a different episode. The worst thing about this app though, is that every show, and every episode skips backwards. Sometimes 30 seconds sometimes 90 seconds.

The problem has been fixed so I am giving Podbean 5 stars. I use this app more often than 80% of my other apps and it's been very reliable and provides me with hours of culture, information and fun! I just wish they'd play a little less ads on my paid subscription. *************** I still can't scroll my Following list to get to a new podcast from the one I was listening to earlier. I haven't had the time to contact the makers but I still hope they fix that. Otherwise, it's a good reliable app.
