This app is an excellent replacement for the previous app that we were using. The clean and sleek design is highly appreciated making the experience of enjoying my podcasts so positive. As to Ads, none of them disrupts your listening experience, and they are confined to graphics when they are necessary to be displayed. And if I ever need help, their Help articles are just a click away with the answers. Customer service is fast, friendly and easy to reach. They are there to help you.

Dated player too many ads Castbox was my go-to podcast player. I get the free version is ad supported. However, the value they offer is no longer worth the inconvenience of the ads. There are now better players out there. The playlist function is poor and really doesn't meet my needs. I haven't seen substantial updates in the time I've been using the app. Every time I move from one screen to another it's an ad. There are so many. Makes the player obnoxious. It is not a fair trade anymore.

UPDATE: It corrected itself guys. Not sure what the malfunction was but it's fixed now. Thank you for responding so quickly. The app is put together pretty well. I like it. I was on Google podcast and I love how Castbox downloads my episodes for me. 5 star✨ all the way on my end. Need help! App gets stuck on the logo screen at start up. I have to delete the data every time or it won't work. Galaxy S22 Ultra
