Reviews From google play store

The interface is intuitive, and the app has some very useful features. I especially make use of the ability to set the playback speed; I often listen to podcasts in which the presenters have unfamiliar accents, and playing them at a slightly slower speed enables me to parse the accent without missing what they say. In short, this is the best podcatcher I've tried. Way better than the one that's named after an Asian mountain range.


great tool for listening podcast on the go , and at anytime ! thank you ! thank you ! thank you ! great effort ! user interface is very human friendly ! the program can memorise where you left last time and keep on listening from the place you left . keep up the good work ! i will glad to recommend it to all the friends and family around .


Easy to use. I like having podcasts that I follow download over the time it's idle so I can listen when it's convenient. Being able to stop at certain times, or the end of a cast is great flexibility. * I just had the app update & it keeps giving an error, won't play a cast it says is downloaded. *UPDATE*Very quick response with my issue. Fixes didn't work, but it was only 1 episode that. I'm blaming the position of the stars (tongue in cheek). Still happy w/ the app, & still using it.


Used to love this app, but for the last month or so, every time a podcast ends, it crashes my bluetooth "Bluetooth has stopped". So i have to stop the podcast before it ends, mark it as read to avoid the crash. Update: tried coming back to podbean thinking this might be fixed, but still having the same problem, anytime a podcast ends bluetooth either shutsdown or crashes.


been using this for years! never lets me down. by far, this is your one stop podcast app. hackerhamin Network forever!....... (Now) Man this app has fallen hard.. every time a podcast ends my Bluetooth disconnects ..i have to click on unplayed in order for my new podcast to show up, an they won't download until I do so . About to look for a new app.


This is a decent podcast app, has all the shows you'd expect, and a good search experience. Playback is fine, but sounds a little quiet. One problem I've noticed recently is that it's constantly waking my screen during playback -- with the phone locked and dark, it will suddenly wake up for a few seconds, then go dark again. This repeats every 30 seconds-to-a-minute as long as the podcast is playing. If I stop the podcast, the screen stays dark. Other apps don't have this problem.


In my place of employment internet connection comes in and out and the auto download of new episodes as well as the download option in general has made access to my favorite podcasts just as easy as if I had no internet disruption. The removal of listened podcasts automatically is a great aspect as well. I highly recommend this podcast app to Android users.


Don't know what i do without this app. It is so nice to be able to just "listen" and feel connected to the world with out all the visual,fast paced junk in between. Thankyou thank you! And thanks for making it Free!!! So many things to choose from!!!


The app has done over 30 downloads at once, multiple times, without me telling it to do so! I'm so pissed off about this, I do NOT recommend this app!!! Update: to Podbean, shut up! I'm not letting you be a poser here! The Auto download was already off! And this time was the second time this has happened! Btw, I would never allow 30 or more podcasts to be downloaded, twice, & burn you my memory!


Found WAAAAY more podcasts than I possibly have time to listen to. Downloading is superfast. Podcasts are easy to find and play. I love that it shows which ones I have played already, and it apparently deletes them off of my phone once I have listened to them, which only gives me space for more downloads😜!


Interface in Android auto mode is terrible. It rarely keeps is place in a long podcast, usually restarting at the beginning. There used to be a workaround where skipping back and forth between episodes could get it to resume instead of restart. This no longer works since the forward and backward button functionality changed. So here I am skipping forward 30 second at a time trying to find my place in a four hour podcast, because it's my only navigation option. I've updated ticket 140644 as req


Only downloads to phone memory, which is very limited. Will not put downloads on phone's sd card, even though there is a popup which appears to give that option, but it does not. Filled my phone's memory after 6 or so podcast episodes. There's got to be better options to this app.


Great app for listening to your favorite podcast or news but lately they say 4 days ago when I have found updated versions elsewhere. Just updated app and even uninstalled app and reinstalled and the same thing still shows up. This isn't just for one podcast, MULTIPLESshow up this way. Hope it's fixed soon.


Why can't you give a standard rewind and fast forward button? Going back 10 seconds at a time is awful. Replay button? When scrolling through multiple tracks they begin playing. Will have 4 or 5 I have to rewind.


Great app. Easy to use, with tones of podcasts of any kind. There is this simple issue though. If you interrupt downloading, say for loosing net connection, when you resume from point zero, which is annoying on slow connections


I listen to a lot of podcasts. I work nights, usually alone in a small department is a small hospital. Podbean is smooth in its operation, no pop up adds, quickly connects to all my devices. I love it.


Excellent and intuitive news/story-telling app with prompt notification of new episodes and a good range of high-quality podcast sources including the Washington Post. The main downside is that it's difficult to write comments in the app.


I love it but it's stopping for some reason - almost like it is crashing because it closes the app completely. I paid for a year but if it keeps up I will no longer use it and I will cancel my subscription


I have really enjoyed this app. The sound is pitch perfect. It does some times freeze up but it might just be my phone. I just click the pause button and it starts right back.


The developers respond to feedback very well. There are still some issues with downloading away from wifi. Ive done all the recommendations and the podcasts still stop after 30 minutes. Overall, mediocre app.


The only reason why this rating is more than one star is because it's free. The app performs poorly, and crashes regularly. It is free, and there is a huge selection of casts, though.


This is such an amazing app!!!! This app is by far my favourite thats on my phone, its amazing to just listen whilst working, chilling out, doing housework and other boring stuff, this app turns it from boring to enjoyable real quick 😅


I have tried a few apps for podcasts, and I like Podbean the best. I feel it is the most user friendly, and I like the way the app looks. It is very reliable and downloads are quick


My first podcast app, which up until recently, worked great. Lately the filters haven't been working correctly and some of the latest episodes aren't showing.


Really nice app. Only one thing the auto play doesn't really work all the time. Specifically in playlist, or the channel you are following. Hopefully its fixed


I can listen to my favorite podcasts and this is the only app that works WITH OUT issues .... I have never lost connection and can pause it from car and restart it without missing a beat... Thank you


It use to be a good but, the past 2 weeks I can't listen to a complete podcast due to the cutting in and out every few seconds. Time to look for another!


Love hearing a variety of podcasts on subjects from politics to knitting . I can create playlists, put an alarm on so it turns off automatically. Can even listen to free audiobooks!


Insightful, as close to real time and unabridged as you can get at the moment. Can go straight to the core of one's interests. Can listen anytime.


It rarely recognizes podcasts that have been all ready played when listening to your unplayed episodes. You have to go into each episode, open it up & mark it as played then doublevhecl to see if it worked. Not convenient.


Pretty good, but downloading things doesn't work unless you stay on the page. Also, it randomly stops sometimes.


I like the app and how easy it is to find the podcasts I am interested in. It takes some I don't like that you have to almost force quit it to make the app notification go away.


Honestly best podcast app I've ever used (including spotify). Theres a bunch of handy features like following certainnpodcst and even downloading for offline. All my favorite podcasts are on there too!


Really used to like it but within the last 3 months, my downloaded podcasts would be gone from my downloads list without me removing them. When I tried to submit an email- i got a 404 error. Super frustrating.


Pointless!!! Automatically shuts off after 30-40 minutes, won't go to the next podcast; EVERY decision must be manually done. 1 positive is you can find podcasts you've never heard of


Nice a pretty simple to use and not overly complicated. Also the free version is not inundated with ads.


A great way to listen to your favorite talks, shows or audiobooks. Highly recommended! Thumbs up.


So great for non-ipod users! So the only downside is that "sometimes" I cannot find certain podcasts that have been shared with me via a blog or something, with the host/author giving only an itunes link, but most of the time, not a problem. Too bad not all of the podcast hosts know about podbean, or I would get to follow them, too!


Works great and loads of variety. Just wish I could exit the app, it doesn't ever shut down I always have to force shut it...


Best option for android. New podcasts I sub to are up faster than other platforms it seems too. Dig the organized layout of newest unplayed episodes from my subscriptions. Actually easier than Apple podcasts which I use on my iPad.


Great podcast player app. Easier to use than some of the "bigger" podcast apps, connects well and good sound quality.


Great for creating custom playlists to play during my work commute. Works well, does what it claims to.


I love this app but I recently got a new phone and the app no longer auto downloads new episodes of podcasts that I am following. I have made sure the auto download feature is on, I have tried uninstalling the app, reinstalling, and unfollowing each podcast and refollowing and it still is not downloading new episodes. The permissions are there as well. Please fix this!


Great app. Only issue is that some podcasts it won't let you adjust playback speed and the app freezes. Otherwise fine.


At some point recently the controls stopped appearing in my swipe-down notifications menu, so I now have to open the app to pause a podcast (before I could do so while using another app). I have also occasionally been unsubscribed from a podcast without me doing so, or new episodes have stopped appearing in the Unplayed section. Other than that it works fine and has been the most convenient podcast app I've used so far.


Really smooth and easy to use once you have selected your podcast, has a good variety of content however the interface for finding things is not quite as smooth as some other podcast players


Doesn't work anymore. At first mobile data didn't work, now even WiFi won't download the episodes. Please fix!


It's generally a very good app. I've been using it for quite some time (a year or two?). I love being able to pin my favorites at the top and reorder eps easily. I also like all the little customization options (e.g. being able to rewind 30 sec or 20 sec). I find there's a weird connectivity with my camera (like, sometimes when I take a picture, the app pauses...?) and sometimes the app just randomly stops. Weird. But, all in all, it's solid and I'll keep using it barring something major.


They have great podcasts like serial, crime junkies, hidden brain etc.... but the play next function doesnt work. It replays the one you just listened to or the one before that. Never moves forward to next unheard episode. I put in a request with the app people and they asked me to screenshot the problem which is impossible so ya just have to go in every time and go to list and select next episode


I love this app but at some point every time I've had it, it stops updating my podcasts. I literally have to go through them to see if anything new dropped. Why is this a recurrent flaw? It used to happen on my iPhone now its happening on my Android. It's very frustrating. 10/31- no that's what I mean it doesn't update when there's a new episode i need to go looking in each podcast individually


This app does not remember your listening from device to device. It only plays from top down, so if you have it set to newest on top then next one that is played is the previous episode and not the next episode. If you change to oldest on top then you have to scroll all the way down to find the episode that you are on. I am deleting this app. Garbage.!!


About Midway through each episode the app freezes or entirely closes then I have to relaunch and give it five minutes to reboot. To get them to play in the right order never works either. Pretty terrible podcast app. I use headphones, Bluetooth and directly from my phone. No matter how I listen it freezes/closes by itself. Garbage app. Closed of it's own accord three times within an hour. POS.


If you are listening to a long podcast and can't finish it in one session, you have to take note of where you left off and jump back to that spot. The app needs a bookmark feature so you can mark your spot in a long podcast and be able to start at that point. Added: I've contacted your support person (Abegail) on ticket 136100 prior to this review. The way it sounds from her last suggestion is that I need to pause the stream and keep the service running for it to hold my place. The way it should work is that whenever I press pause, the stream location is written to a file. When the app is restarted, if the file exists, the user is asked if they want to go back to that point. If the user originally stopped the stream or the stream finished on its own, the file is deleted and the next start-up occurs as normal. Ideally, there should be a bookmark button/option on a menu.


Great app. But the app stops playing when I switch to another app or when I switch off the screen. Please fix for Pixel 4


Let's be honest here, I don't have to deal with ads when I'm listening to my true crime or my dnd podcasts and as long as I have signal I can still hear what's goin on.... do you really need to know anything else? No ya dont. If ya like podcasts, this is a good addition to your podcasting selection


I love podbean. So many content providers, easy to use and customize, and stable service. Thank you for your product and services.


Occasionally doesn't update some podcasts with the new episodes until much later, but other than that it's my go-to podcatcher


This is a flawless free app....couldn't ask for anything better with regard to downloading and listening to podcasts!


App works well for me. Allows me to hear sermons from church since I am busy with children's church during the sermon time.


Love it. Downloads great. Has everything. Easy to pick up where i leave off.


I know I'm old, but I find the settings confusing, and the app difficult to navigate.


First of all, let me just say that I actually really like this app. I think the interface is great and the controls are wonderful. But, you can't listen to downloaded content in airplane mode. That's ridiculous. Podcasts are large files typically and you want to download them over wifi without using your mobile data. It shouldn't require you to have a connection to play this content. If that feature is added I will GLADLY reinstall. Until then, I'll be on Podcast Go.


I love this Podcast app.! It's very used friendly and allows me to listen to my podcasts without interruption.


Some college friends do a podcast on here every week, enjoy the app. The variety is great. Wish episodes would play in Ascending order though.


A few months in and I need to lower the score. It has many issues that make it hard to enjoy such as constant crashing and killing the Bluetooth connection every time it switches between files. It doesn't remember which podcasts were already played, which makes it hard to remember where you left off if you jump between different podcasts. Having a playlist seems useless due to the Bluetooth issue mentioned above as well as not autoplayiblng the next file in line.


I like the app and love the content available but I will be listening and towards the end of the podcast the app will just close for no reason. It's very frustrating when I can't always get to my phone to restart it. Edit: I am listening via Bluetooth headphones as I listen to podcasts while at work. I work in a lab so I is important that I can hit play and just go.


Its not listener friendly. There's no category for a listener to click on that has your saved podcasts. This is very frustrating when you have a dozen or so podcasts you like to listen to. I hope they fix this issue soon. *Update* they informed me that this perk is not available at this time. So if you have multiple podcasts you want to listen to, use a different app.


works the best of all the apps I tried (I tried the 7 most popular ones) also it doesn't bombard you with ads (it has ads but on a moderate level, which is the reason I switched to this one in the first place, hope it stays like this) no bugs, smooth operation, many options... 5 stars well earned!


The player has no stop button and no way to clear it from notification bar... really? Edit: Thanks for reply. On galaxy s10 plus, close button is not shown by default and dragging notification bar down is not expand the mini player as well. I had to touch the notification title (app icon) to reveal the close button.


Works but burns your data quick. I turn off background but it would still download episodes of podcasts (ones you follow) automatically. To stop this I would have to force stop the app. But it would resume downloading random episodes next time the app was opened. So I ended up uninstalling the app altogether. Also you're not able to search individual episodes of podcasts. Just the channel it's self can be found in the search feature.


It's a bit finnicky, when it works it's great. I download my Critical Role episodes, but recently the episodes seem to stop for long periods of time (as if they're buffering?). Sometimes the app just crashes and lately the episodes have stopped 5mins early, and then because they delete themselves you have to redownload them all over again just to hear those last bits.


There a lots of choices on here, but so far I haven't found a way to get right to the podcasts that I follow. Every freaking time, I have to do a search, and I'm really annoyed by that. The only time I don't have to do a search is if I never turn off my phone. Since I turn off my phone every night because I don't want EMF in my bedroom, I have to search every time. Very annoying. I'm going to check out other podcast apps to see if they're any better.


Crashes whatever pod im listening to without fail at least 3 to 4 times and doesn't have a playlist function. Dissatisfied


Tons of pod casts to listen to. I always find something interesting.


Previously 5 stars but recently downgraded due to the fact that I can only scroll through like ten episodes before having to "tap to load more". Fix this problem and the stars will go back. Edit: thank you for fixing the scroll. Adding stars and buying the subscription.


Prob best podcast app. Organized well...for people that value function over form. Not that the form is bad though - it looks good. U can see a lot of info on episodes from one screen and without too much moving around. First podcast app w/ specific controls for cell data. Other podcast apps suck at this and use my data too much. Would like seperate setting control for skip back and skip foward - setting different times for each. Test behaviour of back button near start page. Not right now.


Why! Why! Why! Why tap to load more? Just freaking load it, what's the point? Is this done intentionally just to frustrate me? Having said that, this is probably one of the better ones out there, I think they have every podcast. ***UPDATE*** So podbean contacted me, and after discovering this was not a current feature on their app, they added it in the very next update! I love it! I can't believe a company out there actually is able to take criticism and make fixes so quickly, very impressed!


This app delivers! Haven't had any troubles and I'm happy to finally have found a podcast app with editable playlists and easy download/remove controls. I'd give 5 stars but it's missing just a couple non-crucial but much desired features, such as deleting/editing comments you've posted, storage space details, patreon integration, and separate settings for playlists.. like auto-delete after play, for example. I'd still choose this app over any of the other ten I've tried!


Can't think how people can give this 5 stars. It's an incredibly frustrating application. On the whole it's great, layout and look is good but it has many small issues that ruin the whole experience. For instance. If you choose a podcast and rearrange the podcasts from old to new, so you can listen in order. All good. Except next time you open the app the podcasts are back in the original order! So annoying. Then if you are playing it in order, it won't skip over already played episodes, like most podcast apps, no it'll play the thing again. If you log on and continue playing your podcast it'll stop after that podcast rather than playing the next one. You have to go into the selected podcast, rearrange the order and select the next podcast all over again. Very frustrating. Say you're browsing all your unplayed podcast episodes and you see one of interest but you've missed a previous episode. There's no way to go to that episode or that that specific podcast's list of episodes other than first starting the current episode and then clicking through to the list before you're able to select the episode you desire. So in conclusion. Looks good but user experience is a farce. Everything is over complicated for what it is. Things that take 1-2 clicks on other host apps take 3-4 on this one. And it's just frustrating. I don't mind the ads, except it's the same ads over and over and over and over.


Would be five star if the notification bar included a skip to the previous or skip to the next podcast. Currently if I want to fast forward as an episode isn't hitting it I have to stop driving, go into the phone, open the app, pick the next podcast I want to listen to and then I can carry on driving. Very frustrating that would be fixed by 2 more buttons in the notification bar


Ok but unreliable. Some podcasts come in first thing in the morning, sometimes they don't come in until way late at night. Doesn't seem to be rhyme or reason to when they upload, even though the same podcast is available on a different platform.


Meh its ok. I liked it initially bc i could find all the podcasts i wanted. However it now consistently prevents me from switching to another podcast via the widget. I have to go back to the play store, find the app and then open it up/restart it so that i can play another podcast. Very frustrating


A few weird bugs here and there. Occasionally new episodes will disappear and you have to hit refresh on the page to get them back. Some episodes appear later than on other services. When you delete an episode, a status bar appears in the notifications that never goes away. You have to disable notifications or turn off your device to get rid of it. Overall it works very well. The ads are minimal. The service is free. The biggest thing I'd like to see is a "play next" button.


I used this app everyday for two weeks and it just did not work for me. Creating playlists was way to hard. It had major issues going from podcast to podcast within the playlist. My biggest gripe is there is no next button and only fast forward. You could improve this app by adding a next button and making the buttons larger for in car use.


I loved this podcast, short and yet focus on all you need to treat your patient. Had a pt who came in with severe headache for the past 18 hrs with nausea. I had listened to this podcast on headache just before this patient walk in to the clinic. I was proud to give her toradol and zofran. The patient came back to thank me. I felt so knowledgeable though it was my first day as a provider.


I like podbean, but every time I finish a podcast a couple error messages pop up and the app shuts down.


Great podcast search, found all sorts of pods that pique my interest, JRE, PMS 2.0, WW2 podcast. Browsing menus is a breeze, app runs smooth as butter and works pretty solid but sometimes the app will randomly stop playing a podcast. I have no sleep timers on and is usually the only app I have running when I use it. Using a Motorola Z3(non play version)


I originally downloaded this app because it allowed me to access old podcasts (not just those released in the last six months), but it has consistently been pausing in the middle a podcast for no reason, requiring an app restart to get it going again. Needless to say, this is pretty dangerous for those who listen during their commute or on long driving trecks. It's a shame, because I really wanted to like this Podbean for it's episode access features, but it's not worth distracted driving.


Easy to use. I like that I can quickly see which new episodes have been downloaded, at which point I can choose to keep them or remove the ones I don't intend to listen to. This is the first podcast app I've used and have no reason to look elsewhere.


Straightforward, easy to use, and has all my RPG podcasts in one app.


I really Love this app guys! The Podcast here are all premium and it's for free! I almost can't believe it 🥰 Thanks for the team who made this app Possible 😇 Gobless!


When sorting out played items it doesn't so its difficult to load older episodes I want to listen to. Instead of clicking unplayed episodes (when I do it usually removes all episodes or leaves only the newest one.) So I have to scroll down and click see more. Then scroll down and click see more then scroll down and see more. About 8 more times to get to the content I want. I'm sure it's just a bug but it gets harder every day to scroll back further and further to get to new to me content.


Decent playback options, but the UI is often clunky and inconvenient, and some features feel rushed and unpolished. Most things you want to do, are hidden inside a menu, that you open with a tiny button. No UI scaling option makes all of the UI annoying to use for someone like me with large fingers. Chromecast player doesn't support any of the enhanced playback features. All in all, there's a bunch of stuff starving for some dev attention :(


Love it! Really great for a wide variety of podcast, audiobooks, and news like stations, I use it almost daily. Though one concern thats keeping me from giving it 5 stars is it seems certain podcast, such as The NoSleep podcast are not up to date, if thats because of something between Podbean and the creators, or something else I'm unsure, but thats my only complaint is that some podcast just are not up to date, and that I set up my account with a specific name, and it changed it random letters.


This app is very mediocre. The content is fine but the inability of the app to save my progress through podcasts is very irritating, especially when the episodes are a few hours in length. I just had to reinstall the app because it wouldn't play downloaded episodes, nor would it stream them. The download speed is abysmal and I can't download more then episode at once, making it very inconvenient when I don't have internet at work. I wouldn't use this app if my content wasn't exclusive to it.


Don't record podcasts on here! There isn't really a good editing system other than cutting clips off at the end of your recorded clip. You cant split clips. You can add music but you can't edit it or move it around. I played one of my clips over to listen to it to make sure it sounded good amd then all the sudden it stopped playing amd I just lost my ENTIRE 39 min long podcast! There should be an auto save option, because I don't want to save it manually if i still have to edit it when it's done


Awesome application, I love the ease of use and intuitive design.


For years I've used Podbean on my desktop; when i finally got a smartphone,of course I downloaded the app.However, I find it unreliable:it stops working at random(even with a consistent connection), skips ahead, or often needs to be restarted multiple times when it stops working for no comprehensible reason, or shifts from wireless internet to data, or vice versa.When Podbean decides to work, it's fine, but the seemingly inexplicable issues have prompted me to write my first review.


I have not had any issues with this player. i only gave it four stars because i have never used a different player, so i have no frame of reference to how good or bad this one is. never had any bugs that the one star reviews talk about. **EDIT** App does not seem to have a delete function, so it has filled my phone up with files I have to delete via my phone's file system. Three stars


Overall a solid app but when you pause a podcast and then try to continue, it will start playing the beginning of the podcast while the slider still shows that it is partway through. I have to go back up to ten minutes to get it to play what should be playing at that point. It is incredibly irritating. This happens when streaming and when playing downloaded podcast episodes. EDIT: the podcast I had this issue with was The Adventure Zone: Amnesty Episodes 15-26.
