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 contact+ios@castbox.fm. 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

No good for downloads or location

Update: I downloaded this on the strength of the positive reviews. But after persevering for months, I finally ditched it and moved to Stitcher. And what do you know, every thing works! Podcasts actually download. I should have made the move ages ago! Castbox could learn a thing or two about podcast players by looking at Stitcher. Original review: Castbox is a great streaming client, but a lousy podcast player if you’re looking to play downloads. You would think that downloading would be a simple matter, but it almost never manages to download anything (it streams perfectly, so evidently it has no trouble accessing the internet). I can leave it turned on all night, ready to go out running with a full load of podcasts, but in the morning there will be 7 downloads in the cue with nothing actually downloaded. And it has serious issues with location. I can set the location to Japan, but if I happen to be currently in Australia, the ads are for Australia (!). I am happy for Castbox to be supported by advertising, but what is the point of subjecting me to ads from a location different from my location setting!?

Usually a great app - ads are now too aggressive

I have used this app for years, really like the range of podcasts and search functionality.
Recently the ads have been encroaching on listening experience - not just appearing in the app, but forcing you to watch before you can access the podcasts or controls, and I even had one ad stop my podcast halfway through until I reopened the app and responded to the ad asking if I wanted to follow a link to open audible. This is seriously impacting the listening experience.
There also seems to be a glitch at the moment that means the app won’t work when you lock your phone or open another app - again seems to be linked to the ads they currently have in place, as it tends to happen after viewing one of these videos or pop up’s.

Developer Response ,

Hi, sorry about this issue. Could you please kindly take a screen recording or a video regarding the whole process of the issue, and send it to contact+ios@castbox.fm? It would be very helpful for us to locate the issue and make the app right for you. Or, could you please try to resume it by clicking the play/pause button on the lock screen players? Thank you very much for the support! :-) - Sarah
