Lock Screen Control

After latest iOS update, the player control widget no longer appears on the Lock Screen. Any help on how to get it back?

Crashes on Mac M1 12.01 OS

HI , thanks for keeping Castbox updated , but I am unable to run it on MacOs 12.0.1 atall.

Great Apple Podcast replacement, but….

3
It’s crashing more and more often in the past month. In the middle of playing an episode: CRASH. In the middle of downloading an episode: CRASH. In the middle of scrolling through a playlist: CRASH. Just sitting idly with the display on: CRASH. Plus, my phone becomes uncomfortably warmer than usual and my battery drains faster whenever the app is on. It’s either using too many resources and/or is becoming bloatware. I LOVE the simplicity of the app, and I want to keep loving it, but all the crashing is becoming more stressful than it’s worth. PLEASE FIX THIS BUG!!!

Great app but…

Why does it work it’s way backwards through the podcasts catalog When playing? Why can’t the list have descriptions without going to the podcasts main page? Aces other than that

So much better than Apple's horrible player.

5
When Apple updated their player sometime in 2021 and destroyed it for older phones, this app app came running the rescue. 1000 times faster and more functional, and will even play video podcast. And it never crashes. Ditch the buggy Apple player, the one that does not allow you to leave a review, and download this gem instead. Did I mention the Apple player is horrible? It is bad. :-)

Does not provide any option to cancel

I subscribed for a one day trial period but there is NO option to cancel the subscription before the trial period so I got charged anyway. Exasperating.

Amazing app

I love it

Missing One Main Feature

4
Obviously this is better than the standard Apple Podcast app since the revamp. But a simple feature, available on the android version and not iOS, is the ability to stop continuous play (auto-play). If left to it’s own devices, if you fall asleep for example, it will just cycle through every episode on your list and mark them all completed.

Great, but not intuitive

3
I love Castbox and have been using it for years, except for One. Thing. Whenever I want to add another podcast to one of my previously created tags, I have to Google how to do it every single time. It’s not intuitive at all to click on the title, especially when there’s no indicator to let me know that it can be clicked on. I’d assume the action to “add or remove podcasts from my tag” would be under the plus sign or the three dots at the top. I nearly stopped using Castbox a while ago because of this problem. I just find it incredibly frustrating. The three dots should include “layout, sort, clear badges, edit list.” I really enjoy the app, but this one thing really drives me crazy.
