This was my go-to podcast app for a while, but lately you can't listen to podcasts if the app is in the background. The app stops playing roughly every minute and fifteen seconds if it isn't open on your screen. It should be said that I had my playback set to 1.20x, but I was on wifi and my phone was actively charging. Update 1/11- For over a year, I used this app while driving with navigation on screen and battery optimization activated. My problems definitely don't come from a change in use.

Hi, sorry for such inconvenience. Generally, please go to your phone Settings and check if you turn on the battery optimization option for Podcast Player. If it still doesn't work after you turn off it, could you please send support@castbox.fm a video about this "Playback" issue? We'll further look into it. Thanks for the support! :-) - Fiona

I have used this for years and liked it fine, but lately it crashes so much, I can't finish an episode. When I pull it back up to restart the podcast, I get it playing at 2 different places in the episode. I can't use the slide to get back to where it was, I can only fast forward. Then it crashes again and I have to skip all the way through to hear the last 2 minutes. I installed the update and nothing changed.

I have been using this app for quite awhile. I even paid so I would never have to listen to the adds again. I would give it five stars but like everyone else has said, it tends to freeze up in the middle of a podcast and become unresponsive. 12/22/22 The freezing issue has been corrected but now it will become unresponsive. I did the update a week ago but I'm still having the same problems. During play I'll hit pause & hit play & it will play double the audio. I'll have to force stop & reopen.
