Google Play Reviews

  1. guest-avatar

    I like so much about the app, it looks great, playlists, easy to use etc BUT it constantly will stall whilst playing a downloaded show. By stall I mean the playback may continue but none of the buttons will work, or playback will just stop for no reason. The only way to fix it is to close and reopen the app. It happens several times a day. I updated yesterday to latest version hoping it would resolve this but unfortunately not.

  2. guest-avatar

    App is great overall, but it's really annoying that there's no way to read an episode description without automatically playing the episode (and losing whatever you're currently listening to). Makes listening to podcasts with stand alone episodes difficult, because it's hard to find the ones you want. Update: there is a way to view show notes, it's just hidden. Would be cool if you could just swipe up on the episode and view it without having to play it, but at least there is a way. 5 stars.

  3. guest-avatar

    I use to love this app, but I am so tired of it constantly freezing and restarting the app multiple time in one show. It so freakin irritating! I've updated so many times and reinstalled too many times to count. I don't have this problem with other podcast players.

  4. guest-avatar

    I have never had more issues with any other app than I have had with this one. It randomly stops, and if I press play it starts all over again. I can't even get through 45 minutes of a podcast before it stops on it's own. Or it will just close completely and continue to play and when I reopen the app, it will not pause so I have to force stop it, and then lose my place again. I've cleared the cache and even the data. I have never written a review of an app until now. It is that bad.

  5. guest-avatar

    I'm pretty fond of this podcast app. My only complaint is an odd playback issue that happens from time to time. In some episodes, the audio of a certain part will loop, which isn't that big of a deal except that this sometimes results end the end of the episode being cut off. It's happened on episodes of a few different shows, and doesn't seem to be an issue on the production side as listening to the episode on a different platform does not have the same thing happening.

  6. guest-avatar

    The app was good when they had a way to jump hundreds of episodes to get to the middle of the list of episodes, new podcasts would go to the top of your list of followed shows andepisodes played would be darker than not played. All of these useful features are gone. There are a couple of play issues of skipping back and finishing episodes before it's over. These bugs strangely only happen with podcasts that have deals with larger applications like Stitcher and Spotify. Was good 8 months ago.

  7. guest-avatar

    A couple of changes, or adds that I would like to see are; being able to give stars for podcasts, the ability to globally sort my pods so that they automatically come up with the oldest episodes first. Another is to sort my podcasts under headings in say, News, Crime, Health, etc. I'd also like to put something in each podcast for those podcasts i don't want to miss. These are the only things I'd like added to make this stand out from the crowd. Other than those, thanks so a great app! :) I'm now having issues with playing one podcast, then another podcast just comes into the one I'm listening to so that I have to stop and go to another podcast, or another podcast player. VERY frustrating. Could you please fix as Himalaya is my preferred podcast, but I'll have to reconsider if this isn't sorted out soon as I then have to download the one I'm listening to, onto another provider e.g Spotify. PLEASE help.

  8. guest-avatar

    I used to prefer this app because it was most stable and clean podcast app out there, but have been having many bugs lately. Podcasts often won't play anymore until I clear cache of app. Sound also starts soundin very distorted for a while sometimes. I hope it will go back to it's performance and quality like it used to be.

  9. guest-avatar

    Loving all the options. Easy to use, and keep your lists organized. After some use, it will stop playing randomly. I have had to delete and reinstall, but it has happened twice now. Any advice on how to stop this? I really love this app and it is my preferred podcast player.

  10. guest-avatar

    I feel like every couple of months they make a change to this app that makes it slightly worse! Now they have suddenly changed the order that my subscribed to shows are listed in. Before it would be arranged by which show had the newest episode. Now it's just some random order that I cannot understand at all. Please revert back to the old way of listing shows.

  11. guest-avatar

    Perfect with issues. Switched to Himalaya because of problems with other apps. Very happy with Himalaya, except for one major issue. That is still persisting AFTER the April 30, 2020 update. SOME PODCASTS JUST DONT PLAY. For some reason, certain podcast just load infinitely and never play. Very frustrating and would like to see fixed. Would easily vote 5 stars otherwise.

  12. guest-avatar

    Used to be good but now will pause (even on downloaded episodes) all the time and has to be the top app or you can't listen. Get a text? Pause. Checked said text but didn't switch back? Pause. Been listing for more than 2 mins? Pause. Oh and wanna use the 15 jump on lock screen? Nope not there.

  13. guest-avatar

    Dang they went and made it worse! Latest update 5/1 or 4/30 they changed the way your podcast notifies you about new episodes and buries your longest followed PC way at bottom, played episodes are no longer darker than unplayed ones. Idk why people dint listen to the old phrase "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."

  14. guest-avatar

    Overall this app seems to work pretty well. My main issue is that one of my podcasts doesn't show up right away so I end up listening to it elsewhere. This is Joy and Claire. It also was being buggy recently, not pausing and freezing.

    Love the app how I can find some audio book. However, I noticed recently it kept frozen from time to time. Don't know what's going on with the app. Also, there are some audio book unable to listen but still show available.

  16. guest-avatar

    My podcasts repeatedly pause automatically, and then restart every five minutes. I must then go back to find my place. I've written to customer support through the app about this, but havent gotten a response. I'm definitely switching to a different podcast app

  17. guest-avatar

    The app dosen't play the episode fully. It pauses the episode randomly. When the player gets minimized it becomes untouchable. I can't expand the mini player. When pausing or playing an episode I need to use the media player in the notification area because everything else doesn't work.

    Sorting appears to be working again. I must have some other issue with my install. Now the app just freezes constantly when I turn off the screen. My android isn't putting it to sleep, so I'm not sure what's happening.

  19. guest-avatar

    I like it except when it randomly stops working and I can't turn off the episode or pause it. I have to restart my phone. It's a hassle and it happens at least twice a week.

  20. guest-avatar

    Good app. Only two things I wish it had. I wish the web browser showed what was played and synced that with the app. I also wish there was an option to mark all episodes as played in a list.

  21. guest-avatar

    It does not work much of the time. I hit play and it just goes in circles and never plays. The layout is good though. But its not usable most of the time.

  22. guest-avatar

    Good overall. It seems to run well on iPad and Android phone without freezing up my devices. I like it much better than Castbox.

    Great app. Lots of great podcasts on here and great quality. Can turn phone off whilst listening to save batt too

  24. guest-avatar

    I've tried lots of Andriod appsbut nothing beats the user experience on Himalaya. Would be good to integrate the timer in the episode player, otherwise top notch!

  25. guest-avatar

    App stalls & freezes. Have to push pause and then play or shut down the app and restart to play again. Just started happening since last update.

  26. guest-avatar

    Can't delete episodes from my favorites playlist. I don't know why it just started very disappointing.

    It autoplays the next episode every time. You cannot opt out. Even if it's an episode you've heard already and is marked played. The episode lists are too fat so it's impossible to browse episodes. You can't mark episodes as listened to, so it's impossible to manage big lists. This is completely unusable. Edit: 1 year later, you can mark individual episodes as played, but only if you pull up that episode settings, and autoplay is still mandatory, so no thank you.

  29. guest-avatar

    Overall I've found this app fairly easy to use. Download what you want to listen to for the day and it plays through the list. It would be helpful to have more control over playlist orders, allowing you to reverse them so a series plays forwards not backwards. It would also be helpful to be able to select blocks to add to playlists, adding one episode at a time is painful.

  30. guest-avatar

    I am not impressed with the user interface at all. The navigation is not intuitive at all. I especially dislike how the episode list works. Nothing about this app is user friendly. I give it 2 stars because it does work. However, I wouldn't suggest it to any of my friends. I was hoping it would be a replacement for Stitcher. Too bad.

    It's a fantastic tool for accessing free, high quality podcasts. I'm currently using it to learn Chinese, and it's been quite helpful. There's all sorts of contents in many languages, and I believe you can even upload your own content. Definitely recommend it. Giving it 4 stars because leaving a comment in any episode is a painful experience, the keyboard keeps on disappearing every few seconds and you have to constantly tap on the comment box to be able to open it up again. Please fix this!

  32. guest-avatar

    Only can continueasly listen 20 episodes then you have to manually look for the same title again and scroll down to 21 episode.

  33. guest-avatar

    Worked great at first, but now many podcasts that I follow won't play. New episodes are added, but they won't play. I have to listen to these (censored?) podcasts in other apps, like Stitcher and Soundcloud. Too bad. It used to be a good app.

  34. guest-avatar

    The app keeps freezing lately, I have to do a force stop to unfreeze it.

  35. guest-avatar

    Hands down the best app for podcasts. Every thing flowes smoothly. The way this app was built is for the person who is using it. I dont give reviews often almost never unless I truely love something. I uninstalled every podcast app because this one is far more superior.

  36. guest-avatar

    For the last week or so, Ive had numerous podcasts refuse to load, while others are fine. Ive deleted and re-installed to no avail. Tried wifi vs lte. Like Citations Needed will play fine, but TrueAnon just hangs on buffering. Frustrating.

  37. guest-avatar

    I like it because there is no interruption between episodes.

  38. guest-avatar

    Its a good app to listen a book quickly in time, although there is a lot of books can not be found in Himalaya, but it is still valuable to use in order to advance our knowledge. 它已经做的很不错了

  39. guest-avatar

    Really enjoy this app, but it keeps launching in the background and I have to force stop it to get it to go away. It's gotten annoying enough for me to consider a different app.

  40. guest-avatar

    Love using this app to listen to all my fav crime podcasts. Couldn't drive to & from work without it

    I was given a month free premium promo code. Worked but was charged for the month of April? I tried giving "feedback", selected the "payment related issue" option described what happened, and got no reply. I sent an email with the same content and still no reply 😡

  42. guest-avatar

    I really love this podcast app but the last week or so, some episodes wont load at all, some keep freezing and some play fine. It is very frustrating as it is not my internet.

    Love the app ,both Chinese and International version. It helps me improve Chinese and tune positivity when I plug my ears and listen to the motivational speeches while exercising

  45. guest-avatar

    No cast-to options. No export option. No custom number of downloads per podcast. No multiple selection of episodes to mark all as unplayed or to delete. Terrible app with exclusivety to my favorite show.

    It keeps on crashing, the podcast would not play when you change to another app/block the screen, a lot of times it skips back and replays 2 or secs by itself. Dreadful podcast app

  49. guest-avatar

    4.9 star review..I really do enjoy this app. I just wish it was easier to read what a podcast is about instead of having to open an episode up.

    It's really easy to use and sounds great I benn licensing a few days and I loved it, I can't wait to discover more and more

  51. guest-avatar

    A satisfactory update with easy setup for sleep timer, I do enjoy that. In previous version you have to do it by navigating through a nested app setting.

  52. guest-avatar

    So podcast here haven't been updated for years, this is something people should watch out for if they subscribe a channel that they might be interested in. Watch for the latest update.

  53. guest-avatar

    Best podcast app on the market and thanks to in cast custom tailored marketing it's free! If you haven't I'd recommend the "philosophize this" podcast.

  54. guest-avatar

    I like the layout, but many podcasts aren't up to date on this app. It's hard to listen to the latest podcasts when they simply aren't there to begin with.

  55. guest-avatar

    Clean and no ads! Keep up the good work!

  56. guest-avatar

    Seems good, except 1) no option to change storage int/ext & 2) cannot change the 'do not disturb' period.

  57. guest-avatar

    I love this. So easy to use and there's podcasts I couldn't get on other apps . Can't get enough

  58. guest-avatar

    Easy to use, intuitive and an exhaustive library, love it.

  59. guest-avatar

    Was working fantastically, but now it refuses to load and play several of my podcasts.

  60. guest-avatar

    Really good App, the only downside is we have to see the advertisement.

  61. guest-avatar

    This is the best app for podcasts that I have found.

  62. guest-avatar

    Easy to navigate and works in the background of everything. Never had a problem with it.

  63. guest-avatar

    Great and good for sleep time to hear nice calm voices doing podcasts. Great and free love it

    not enough content on fact-news and talkshows still.

  75. guest-avatar

    The app is great! I heard about them from an indie podcast that says they support independent podcasts and that's great. One thing I dislike very very much is that once you download an episode, you still need internet to see the artwork when you open the app back up. When an episode is downloaded, so should the artwork and info be. Needing internet to see that everytime is very annoying

  76. guest-avatar

    I would like a number showing how many episodes i haven't watched when i suscribe to a podcast.

    Tried it. Hated it. You can't select all episodes you've already listened to to mark them played, which is an important feature for me. Improve features and I might try it later on.

  80. guest-avatar

    Good library, pleasant ui. I like the playlists and sleep mode. Recent updates have taken a real step back. Podcasts stop randomly and restart in a different location. Some of my followed podcasts simply won't update despite new episodes being posted a full day before. Will be switching apps unfortunately.

  81. guest-avatar

    IT's of fun To listen every Party cast that you like I like Corey and Aaron show it's awesome park asked and I hope you will like Hearing your favorite things for Sports News music there's different kinds of things to listen I really like to listening to it and later see it on YouTube but it's much better listening to it in the car when you can't See it on your phone so you can just put it plug your phone on your car and Listen to it

  82. guest-avatar

    On your search categories how can i find education and training section, the podcast i've been listing is under those cate, but i can't seems to find those cate under search, unless i know the name of those spec podcast otherwise i won't be able to find them. Ps..in the new update, Its been fixed, i can much easyer find the podcast i been listening. Much appreciated

  83. guest-avatar

    This is the best podcast I've ever see. Even better than Google podcast. It has a beautiful user interface, doesn't malfunction at all and its searching interface works like a charm. That means unlike others, i can misspell a word in the search bar and still find relevant podcasts.

    I came here on a recommendation from the Astonishing Legends podcast and found it very user friendly and easy to navigate. You can also download episodes to listen to offline which is great for travel where service is often sketchy.

    Really good but managing the actual pod cast episodes is clunky. It would be a lot better and I would completely switch if it was easier. I don't want to have to click on each episode, swiping or holding and selecting would be better. If there is a way to do it then it in not intuitive. Other than that I really do like the app and the recomended podcasts section is the best and most accurate I have seen

    I switched to this app from Stitcher (app kept feezing up; no response from developer). I am enjoying this app. It's very pleasing to the eye. Lots of features availabe including leaving comments. The only reason I gave 4 atars and not 5 is that I often have a hard time getting the tool bar (Discovery, History, Search, Profile) to pop up without closing the app -- still trying to figure out the trick.

    App was working great till recently it lost a basic function. I have been listening to this podcast with over 800+ episodes. Previously, the app would group them in groups of 50, so I can just jump to the group I want. Now, it has lost that function, so I have to scroll through 100s of episodes to find the one I want. I can use the Search function, but if I do, the player will not automatically play the next episode when the current one finishes, and I have to search again.

    For the most part this app works well and I used to prefer it to others I've used in the past. Recently, however, the ad bloat has become nearly intolerable. I have heard the exact same ad play up to 7 times in a row and then an additional 2 after the intro to the next podcast I'm trying to listen to. It is very excessive.

    I've searched high and low for a podcatcher and I've never been able to stay "this is perfect" till this app. The searching is amazing, the suggestions are amazing, want to hear a podcast in reverse order, no problems, want to use tags that don't appear in the titles but are still relevant, done. This app is the app you've been looking for, trust me!

    I really like the user interface and sound quality provided by the app. However there are three things keeping the score down 1. The widget does not function 2. If you play an episode from your recently played list after the episode ends it doesn't continue on to another episode of that podcast it goes to the next one in the recently played queue 3. Most importantly episodes of podcasts don't update quickly. There is about a half day delay between this and other podcast apps.

    This app contains all kinds of podcasts.

    Best podcast app that I've found so far, works on my android phone and has a web version that's actually good. A few feature requests though. 1: Allow users to mark large numbers of episodes of a podcast as watched so they can get things set up correctly when the join from a podcast app that doesn't let them export. 2: allow Android users to change dark mode with the system settings. 3: add dedicated desktop apps with downloads for all OS's. 4 allow users to permenately lock now playing bar web.

    It doesn't let you select all in once all the episodes that you have listened (I'm new to the app and obviously I have podcasts I listen to before) so I have to go one by one other wise it will play them again. Also it doesn't let my wi-fi headphones use the 15sec forward function or go to the next song. Don't know why! Im using the app because one of my fave shows is exclusive for this app. Not loving it to be honest so far I think is missing some basic functions.

    Very sleek and attractive UI, and it's nice to have listener comments on episodes. On the other hand I wish there was an easier way to add items to the queue. That's my main gripe with podcast apps, and the only app I've found to properly tackle the "next episode" function is Pocket Casts. I like to be able to easily hand pick what episode of what podcast is going to play next, and for that reason I'm going to have to keep using Pocket Caats, however please let me know if I maybe missed it.

    A great system except I listen to podcasts in my car and it seems that I can't go back & forth in increments only jump to and from the next episode. So not really useful to me.

    This is a very pretty app and it has behaved very well, no bugs. However it seems to be lacking in some functionality I assumed was basic, i.e. marking multiple episodes as played. I like that it doesn't auto download by default (in case your phone is memory-challenged) but I keep losing the settings screen to reset. No response to email query and I can't find any help documentation so if the problem is me, I don't know how to fix it.

    I don't like it and i don't hate it. I just installed it because one of my favorite podcast is now Himalaya's exclusive. While it is pretty frendly, there are several things i don't like about it: 1) it doesn't take old podcast out of queue, so if you listen an episode, it goes back instead of moving to the most recent, and that means it goes to reproduce using data. It doesn't download podcasts unless you open the app. Your phone doesn't go to "sleep" by itself when you listen podcast.

    Alot of the simple options seam overcomplicated, for instance when I set up a playlist it put them at the top of the list instead of the bottom meaning I need to build it from the bottom up... just annoying , I'm trying to find a new podcast player that's stable and were this is stable, the organization ability and features are very lacking

    My needs are met and actually exceeded. The main writer from "Fool and Scholar Productions" (Liberty, The White Vault, etc.) discussed this app and I thought I'd give it a try. (edit out long post) !!! Issue, Please Fix: My playbacks keep rewinding back after a certain threshold of time. 15 minutes in to a podcast episode and I start hearing lines from earlier in the podcast. This happens often and I don't like it. If it persists, I might just go back to Spotify. !!!

    The new update deleted all my history so it doesnt show what episodes I listened to. Super bummed. Also it skips around a lot during episodes and will suddenly replay a section, strongly considering moving to a new platform
