Good app but a few ways to improve

Enjoy the app a lot. Looks great, has a good overview of podcasts and the search and recommendations appear to produce useful suggestions.

I can't find a way to mark all podcasts as played which is a bit annoying. When one is finished it will go to the next "unplayed" pod which I've already heard on another app. Possible I've missed the function.

I'm also not interested in logging into the app so the reminders are annoying.

Developer Response ,

Could you please kindly update your Castbox to the newest version - v4.24.1? We have made great improvements in this version. You can tap the button at the top right corner after opening a podcast and select "Mark All as Played" or "Mark All as Unplayed" now. Please go to app "Settings" - "Skip played episodes" and turn it on. In this way, only unplayed episodes will appear in your "Next Up". Please give it a try, and if anything, please feel free to reach us at As a startup, every review matters very much to us. If you think of any way we can improve, please don’t hesitate to let us know. Hopefully our continued improvement will earn your 5th star! Thanks for your kind support! :-) - Teresa

OK if you don't mind streaming

It doesn't work very well if you opt for downloading rather than streaming. Also it is pretty much unusable if you turn off mobile / cellular data altogether. The playlist only sort of works in as much as it seems that it is easily interrupted. The app also has the annoying habit of prompting you to play the last podcast you just completed rather than the next podcast in the playlist. All in all, I think the developers would have done better to get the basics right before trying to add all the pretty things. Unfortunately there seems to be a dearth of good basic podcast players around. Everyone seems to have a different angle to monetise their apps and none of those really seem to serve the need for basic user convenience and offline performance very well.

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much for your feedback! Sorry for such inconvenience. Could you please kindly send a little more detail regarding your issues? 1. How does it not perform well in the offline mode? What it has to do with turning off mobile data? Do you mean the downloads cannot be played and ask for data to stream? 2. If the episode is completed, it will disappear from the next up list. Do you mean the playlist will repeats playing the episode you finished? Would you mind sending us screen recordings regarding the two issues to help us identify them? Looking forward to hearing from you soon. We will try our best to make the app right for you. Thanks again for your kind support! :-) - Teresa

Apple play shut down.

I like this app a lot.
Have you heard of any issues using this app on car audio systems on Apple play?
I find the app shuts down after 30 seconds. I have tried all different ways to trick it, but there doesn’t seem to be an easy foolproof solution yet. I can easily play music without any problem on Appleplay. I can play the app via a jack audio cord from my device to the car audio. Hmmmm

Developer Response ,

Hi, we are very sorry for this inconvenience. Could you please kindly send a video regarding your "Apple play" issue? Do you mean the carplay by "Apple play"? Looking forward to hearing from you soon. We will try our best to make the app right and better for you. Thank you very much for the kind support! :-) - Teresa
