I honestly hate this app, but I paid for a year of ad-free service so I'll have to stick it out. The queue doesn't auto play my podcasts, navigating from one screen to the other is a huge pain, I can't sign up for notifications of my favorite podcasts, it gives me data warnings for every un-downloaded episode, and it randomly turns off mid-episode at least once per day. Absurd. The *only* thing I like about it is that I can "favorite" certain episodes. I miss Google Podcasts so much....!

Sorry. Please go to your app Settings > Battery Settings > click Ignore battery optimization to see if it helps to prevent turning off. For auto-play and notification features, please send us a screenshot of your Settings by app Settings > About > Contact us > Submit report via email. You can reach us at support@castbox.fm with any feedback at all.

Thought this was a cool app, but the ads are too intrusive. I'm fine with some ads, but not the constantly changing ads while a podcast is playing. When I look at my screen, I want to see what podcast is being played, not a constant stream of ads. Plus, hard to believe it doesn't contribute to battery drain. I miss Google Podcasts. :( I'll be looking for an alternative.

Hi, we're sorry about the ads. To reduce battery usage, you could try to disable auto download, auto delete, and push notifications in the app settings, Also, when you're not using the app, you can also remove Castbox from the background. For more info, please reach us at support@castbox.fm. Thank you very much for your support! :-) - Chloe

I really, really like this app in a lot of ways, but I do have two big main issues. 1) it's very hard to manage or manually change my queue. AND since last week even I can't even change the order of episodes in the queue at all, which is a BIG issue. 2) I hate that it pops up huge obnoxious warnings every time I listen to podcasts without having downloaded them. I have unlimited data. Why does the app care so much if I want to use data to listen!?!?

Hi, could you please check if you have locked the queue? At the top right corner of the "queue" page, you can see a "lock" icon. When it's unlocked, you can manually manage the episode orders. We will continue to update our app to make it better and better. You can reach us at support@castbox.fm with any other feedback. Thank you for your support!
