I've been using Podbean for about 8 years now and it's still the best podcast app for Android that I've found. My only complaint is that it's hit-or-miss when it comes to getting Patreon RSS feeds to work; sometimes they do but usually they don't. Still, overall the app is indispensable to me; I use it for hours on end and it's always easy and nearly always reliable. Original review (5 stars): My favorite podcatcher by far, works like a charm!

I like many features of this app and keep coming back to it. However, when I mark an episode as played, that info is not saved indefinitely. That can be frustrating for long-running podcasts that have lots of episodes. I have reported this, and the problem still remains.monolog? The history only shows the past few days. I am referring to episodes listened to 2+ months ago. Once an episode is marked played it should stay that way. That's not happening.

Would you please go to the History page, to see if your play history was logged?

Pretty good podcast app aside from two little gripes. Jumping back can take a number of seconds to work for some reason even though jumping forward takes no time at all, and I wish it was easy to see which episodes of a podcast I've listened to while scrolling through that podcasts list of episodes. You know, like a checkmark beside those episodes. That being said, this is the podcast app that I prefer above all others.
