Constantly crashes forcing to reload the entire app everytime. I've tried 3 different phones and the problem is still there. Soo it's definitely there apps issue. Especially others say same thing Iam. Its very frustrating bc they offer no help fixing the issue/bug. I've had this app for some months now, this has been an issue since day 1. 8 use on podcast that's it. So very hopeful the podcast I use goes to another platform so I can drop this turd like a deuce.

Great breadth of content and solid UX. However, critical bug - podcasts stop randomly for seemingly no reason, including downloaded content. Was not having this issue before most recent update. Issue followed me between phones (Note 20 Ultra to S23 Ultra). Many, many reports of this behavior in reviews. Would not recommend until fixed.

I tried to update my review to respond to the developer's question, but I can't locate it. If my review hasn't been deleted I shouldn't be able to post this one. Short version: App is unusable. Crashes every five minutes and I have to restart the podcast from the beginning most of the time now. This happens whether I am streaming or have downloaded the podcast, and it has been an issue for a long time. This happens on every phone I own.

Did this issue occur with the downloaded episodes? Would you please try to download an episode to see if the issue still occurs?
