Overall, I have no complaints about this app. However, there is an annoying, recurring glitch that causes skipping during playback. I just un-/re-installed for the second time; we'll see if that fixed the problem. Stay tuned... [UPDATE: it didn't. The glitch is still there. On top of that, my podcasts aren't updating properly. I still like this app, but the glitches are disappointing.]

I have used Podbean for probably a couple of years and have been disappointed to find in the past couple of weeks it no longer saves my played status and when I leave a podcast and come back to it later, my place in the podcast is no longer saved. I have used the batch manage tool to mark all of my played episodes several times, and each time I come back, the played status is no longer displayed. I listen to multiple podcasts daily (during commute & all day at work), so this is super frustrating

Our tech team is aware of this and found the source of the bug. We will release a new version of the Podbean app to fix it.

Used to be great. The intelligent speed, volume boost, and up to 3x speed are all fantastic. However recent updates have broken the app. It no longer saves my place in podcasts. I.e. if I leave off on a podcast and come back to it hours later, it starts over. Also the notification bar player locks on. Only way to get rid of it is to restart phone. Frequently it will not start the next episode on the list automatically (I think it's related to high listening speed, but it used to work fine).
