Review from Luis Rodriguez
Nice app. Used to have an interface to pause and jump while phone is still locked. Not sure what happened to that. And they need to make it easier to mark shows as "played."
This is a great app, I've been using it for over a year now, and my only complaint is that in the more recent updates notifications seem to have stopped working, except for recommended podcasts - I don't get anything for podcasts I'm subscribed to. Also, automatic downloads have stopped working - other than these issues, it's great!
Every time there is an update the app stops working properly. In theory it is great, wide selection of podcasts, lets you download to an SD card, bookmarks automatically, and overall works well HOWEVER it stopped auto downloading and support basically ignored me. They told me they couldn't recreate the issue and stopped responding to me. I don't want to lose my downloads, which happened last time there was an issue with the app so I'm using it until I listen to those, while I test other apps for new episodes. Podbean you really need to address concerns better!
Layout is great and so easy to use, keeps track of shows you have listened to or are in the middle of. I love that it shows recommended podcast based on what I'm listening to and they all keep to the same theme. (True crime)
Has anyone else managed to get the cast button working? It links and the Google home makes the connected noise, but the audio continues to play through my phone.
This app has been Glitching lately. Podcasts randomly start over. Also when I have a podcast paused and my phone is sleeping it will just randomly start playing. Very annoying. And yes I downloaded them before I play them. Also it doesn't pause when I'm on phone calls.
Little clunky on the design and it tends to freeze or fail to respond if too many other apps are running. Other then that this is a great podcast app! Easy downloading, streaming and playback. Easy controls. Plus it has a good back catalog of certain podcasts for binging, which I particularly enjoy.
