    I tried one of the other podcatchers - a big-name one - before Podbyte, and found that one to be unintuitive, cluttered, and overly glitzy. I appreciate the relative simplicity and busness-like functionality of PodByte. I don't find it to be perfect, but I also don't think I'll bother to try finding something "better".

  2. A Google user-avatar

    I love the UI and the lack of ads, but the app needs a few more features for me to use it. Some things I would love to see in the future: - marking episodes as played - unplayed episodes counter on the podcast cover - auto-delete played episode after a certain amount of time - a way to control individual podcast download settings and the ability to auto-download for offline use - displaying podcast feeds in different chronological order Keep up the good work!

    Love the simple interface. Reminds me of iPhone Podcasts app. However, I cannot continue using the app because (1) does not have speed control. I usually listen at 1.5X or 2X speed. (2) No timer. I listen to podcasts before sleeping so this function is essential to me. Less important to me: cannot manually mark episode play, export OPML

  4. A Google user-avatar

    a few oddities like the current podcast modal persisting after you manually delete the episode and it fails to store your current episode when you exit the app so you have to go searching for it again, but other than that is a nice little lightweight ad-free app. keep up the good work!

  5. Nathan Tobin-avatar

    Nathan Tobin


    This app is verry bad. It only has a discover button and a search button when trying to add podcasts, and they don't have the full list of categories of podcaaststs either after the trending podcasts, otherwise as a button between discover and search so that one can see the full list of podcasts in which one might select.

    This is a light and simple to use app without ads. I have realised however that it seems to lack the feature to add via rss so will be in installing

    Great podcast player! The best that I know. There two improvement I'd love to see: 1. Dark theme 2. Headphones button does not work as pause/play with this app.

    I came over from iOS and have been looking for the most similar podcast app to iOS podcasts, and this is the closest so far. It would be absolutely perfect with 3 additions; Widget Custom URLs Dark theme I'd happily pay for an upgraded version with these features!

    Weird UI choices that bait you into accidentally clicking delete sometimes when you were just trying to resume play. Downloads that take a long time, get to 80 or even 95% then cancel for no discernible reason making you start all over again.

  10. A Google user-avatar

    A Google user


    I love the fact it is ad free and payment free. That combined with its simplicity is what makes it the best podcast app out there.

    Does not support SDcard (downloads consume internal storage). Downloads use number codes rather than readable filenames.

    Absolutely love how minimalistic this app is. I was looking for something like this for quite some time. Other apps are bloated with menus, suggestions and ads. And PodByte is simple, almost bare functionality. I hope that you'll continue to work on this app though, there are some things you can do to make it even better (like sorting of episodes, maybe some UI and design changes here and there, just to make it more slick). Nevertheless, good work. I will recommend this app to my friends.

  61. Joel Kurtz-avatar

    Joel Kurtz


    I really like this app. It's super simple, has a small footprint, works well, and doesn't have any obnoxious ads. My only knock is that the UI is SO simple that it can be a bit inscrutable at times. For weeks, old podcasts from my queue kept popping up in my notifications, and I couldn't figure out how to get them to go away. Finally, I discovered (from reading these reviews) that you can clear episodes from your queue by long-pressing on them. Who knew? But for the most part, it's a terrific little app, one that I would easily pay for.

  62. Ollie-avatar



    Wish i could delete the podcast eps I've already heard on a different device, otherwise its p good! also more intuitive search bar? okay for transition from apple to android. i really dont want to download and re listen to everything.

  63. Satori Shirou-avatar

    Satori Shirou


    I truly enjoy the simple nature of this app. Easy to search and subscribe. Easy to queue, download and delete. My only issue is it's not easy to find the queue list or how to start playing an episode I had to stop in the middle of. The episodes category shows all available episodes, but they may not be on my queue.

  64. Bora Kaplan-avatar

    Best podcast app I have used so far. Clean and beautiful interface, not bloated with useless stuff, works great for offline usage. The only feature I wish it had was an option to save SD Card.

    So far so good. Been using it for a couple weeks or so and it's working much better than the other mainstream podcast apps I've tried. I'm used to buggy Android apps and this one hadn't crashed or started playing podcasts automatically in meetings like the ones I've used in the past have.

    Simple, clean design. Enough said.

  87. Riger-avatar



    Feel the need to praise again the clean and wonderfully designed UI. Thanks to the developer for adding playback speed controls, though it'd be better if it was consistently applied to all episodes in a specific programme or globally, instead of having to manually set them again every time. An option to skip silence would also be great.

  88. Urban Avsec-avatar

    Urban Avsec


    The annoying (calling it this so that perhaps dev notices): - Episode download can't be canceled within the app (it is possible to cancel it in android action bar though) - Bottom menu is slightly too big and takes a lot of screen realestate. If you can "hide" bottom bar in the menu (as an option perhaps) where "Import OPML is or something, that would be great. The good: + Looks (apart from above mentioned size of bottom menu bar and overall quirkiness that can be forgiven since it is a free app) + Simple + Fast ++ Free +++ No ads +++++ No social media accound accound signup or something as silly

  89. Nik Nab-avatar

    Free app with no annoying ads that works great and only one thing i would change is the way it handles downloads, wish there was a way to put them it some sort of order for playback.
