They just started flashing video adds on the home page of each podcast. Beyond annoying. If it continues I’ll take the app off my phone and use something else.
I used to love Castbox but I don't know why after the last update, it stops playing the episode when I exit the app or lock my phone.
Update: Just want to say that developer responded right away to my issue. Whether it can be fixed remains to be seen. In any case, this is still my favorite podcast app: This has been my podcast app of choice for quite a while now. I love the playlists and the ease of use. Lately I’ve been having an issue with badges showing unplayed in my library. I have to go into the podcast to check for episodes I have missed and find the indicator in error. Also, when I unsubscribe from a podcast it disappears from my library initially but then shows up again, which is quite annoying. These are both recent issues that were not solved by deleting and reloading the app. I am leaving the five star review for now based on my experience with the app over a long time, but I am looking at other apps now to try to find one that meets my needs without these annoying bugs. Hoping these issues will be addressed. It seems they began after most recent iOS update.
Castbox is the best app for hearing the podcasts. بهترین اپ برای شنیدن پادکست
This is like streaming a video (aka ad they run) while streaming the podcast episode at the same time ? Used to be great until they ruined it with these
I reset my cellular statistics 2 days ago, Listened to maybe 3 1-hour podcasts. Castbox used 2.2 gbs of data. Something is wrong by there. Maybe tons of ads? I’m deleting
I like how this app functions when it works, but after over a year of waiting for the bugs to get worked out, I have to look elsewhere. One of the worst issues is that this app has crashed my entire phone into a reboot several times now, never had an app do that except when using this one. Also it will just freeze up quite often and require me to close and reopen the app. Other little annoying things like I can pause it with the button on my Apple ear buds but the app does not respond to resuming play when I use the same button like most other media apps do, instead I have to open the app and hit play again. If they could get it together and work these issues out, I'd stay with the app.
This had all the right features for what I wanted to do, mainly favoriting, queuing a list, and downloading the queued episodes so I can have a go to list of episodes to listen to. The things I wish it had: 1) is there a reason favorites isn’t just a list I can link? I want to be able to send my favorites as a list to friends. 2) is there a way to sort by episodes of most liked or most popular? Sometimes I just want to listen to a crowd favorite, episodes can be hit or miss sometimes. 3) I thought I could see how many times an episode was favorites by other ppl, but it seems to not show it anymore... why? 4) the Home Screen is pretty useless to me. It’s a bit of a throwaway and it could be better used. 5) search can be improved. I have to type EXACTLY what I’m looking for and sometimes it doesn’t even pull up what I’m looking for. For example I typed in ‘the daily’ and ‘radiolab’ and nothing showed up 6) the bar at the bottom of the screen that shows your current episode floats on the screen for iPhoneX. I don’t know if that’s on purposes but many times I hit it when I’m scrolling. Thanks and keep up the great work.
Good but can you make more use for coins
If I’m missing a setting here then I apologize, but I’ve been using this app for over a year and only recently have the ads started playing with music voice and sound effects over an already playing podcast. If this is truly as intended without upgrading the app to premium then IM GONE. It’s not like there aren’t other free apps to use that won’t make me crash my car trying to adjust the ads loooollllllll
