Great app!!! Convenient 5/5
I really enjoy Podbean and the way it reminds me of new episodes along with ideas of similar podcasts I may like. I appreciate it, and enjoy it!!!
Works like a charm 5/5
This is my main podcast app. I use it more than the iOS version. I really like how i can speed up the talking, and even cut back on some of the dead space with the smart playback features.

Good selection, but not so good seek feature 3/5
Podbean has many of the podcasts I could get elsewhere, but sometimes has more episodes available, which I love.
However, whenever I try to seek ahead on downloaded shows, it always brings the show back to the beginning. Please fix this.
Love it !! 5/5
By J. Kyle Sr.
This is a great app for listening to podcasts
I’ve used this app in the past and it has never been a disappointment.
I have now deleted Apple’s Podcast app 5/5
This app is like having the OS X version of Podcasts back. Apple messed up their Podcast app with the latest update. This has everything I loved about the old Apple app. I have now deleted Apple’s Podcast app and only use this one.
The Best 5/5
So easy to use
The stuff I like 4/5

Why get the information you need from fifty different places. One location all the information you could ever want and you pick it
Better than apple 5/5
The apple player stinks so I eve been using this. Pretty good, I just wish it was simpler. Too much crap, but that is to be expected for free.

Great love it set up very similar to the d Apple podcast set up makes life easier
Podbean winning over Apple Podcast 5/5
I randomly found this app after finding that many of my podcasts have recently, week after week, been "temporarily unavailable"; and, continue to be on the Apple podcast app. Podbean hasn't disappointed yet. Super happy with it! Keeps me connected. 😊
Great app 5/5
Great app to find my favorite pod casts!
Loved it, but the bugs... 3/5
Lately the app has been messing up. I’ll be in the middle of a podcast and it will stop playing and do the spinning wheel thing until I give up. My entire trip last night was spent in silence because I kept waiting for it to load. Since I’m driving, I can’t mess with my phone until I arrive at my destination. My trip was 45 minutes. It’s done it all day today too. No matter how many times I restart the app or my phone, the app won’t work again until the next day. I drive for Lyft and like to listen to podcasts on the way to my riders and on the way home. Now I have to find an app that will actually play my podcast.
Please fix this.
Best podcast player out there 5/5
By Kallel - Malygos
The best and easiest to use podcast player I found
It is good 5/5
You cant delete downloads 3/5
By yung ry
The only way to delete downloads is to play the audio.you can skip to the end but why should you have to.
This is the best rock radio show ever!!!
This is the best app for podcasters 5/5
This company has taken all of the guesswork out of podcasting and created a one stop shop for podcasters. No need to get a website and server space because Podbean has reasonably priced monthly options, with a free option to try it out with. Easily post episode links to any social media account, or email them. It integrates with Apple Podcasts so you can post both places. (Podbean is a better app experience since Apple updated the podcast app, and Podbean is cross-platform) I cannot recommend Podbean enough, and no..I’m not an employee, just a client with a Twenty One Pilots inspired podcast where we discuss the meanings behind their songs. It’s called the All My FRENS podcast.
Stay alive FRENS. |-/
Great App, wish it was compatible with Sonos! 5/5
By jj show
Love it 5/5
I love love like be this app. I travel for a living, and it provides me hours of entertainment. I download podcasts when I’m connected to WiFi, and then I’m set for hours. The programs downloaded super fast, and there has not been any glitches at all. Plus there are so many options to choose from, about anything you can imagine you can find a podcast on! Great job and thank you Podbean !
Love it! 5/5
Love that I have access to diverse content!

Podbean is easy to use and nice features 5/5
By Arthur, King of the Britons
I have been using Podbean now for six months and like the extra features. Fun to see my favorite user counts go up.
By heathens wyrd
The new OS update turned the default podcast player into unusable garbage. I tried a few replacements; this is the best podcast app I found. Thank you. I’m also loving this “intelligent speed” feature.
If I had one grievance thus far it would be that I have no clue when the listening metadata updates itself. It’s fun that this tracks your listening habits, but I don’t know when it refreshes so I’m not certain how accurate it is. An inconsequential detail to be sure. I like the public domain links to audiobooks as well.
Bugs with new updates - please fix! 4/5
I was enjoying this app until the last few updates which have created some bugs that have not been fixed yet.
1. If you try to fast forward, it starts back at the beginning.
2. Or sometimes it starts at 0:00 but it's really somewhere else in the program and you'll never be able to FF or Rewind to get to he spot you want to start listening again.
3. It won't play podcasts all the way through or it gets interrupted by phone notifications or something. I like to play podcasts when I am falling asleep and it's never playing throughout the night anymore.
4. On the Playlists, if you try to reorder, it bumps the others on the list randomly somewhere else. You can basically reorder one at a time hoping it doesn't throw something else off.
Other than these bugs, I like this app much better than other podcast apps, but these make it much harder to enjoy.
Please fix the bugs! Hey worked fine a few months ago.
Easy and Affordable 5/5
Works perfectly. Easy integration with ITunes.
Good app 5/5

This has fast forward issues 1/5
By Lonnie A. Beauchamp
I was loving this platform until 6 days ago, when it was updated. I’ve had this app for a month and I’m less then 150 hours away from the scholar level. I love the variability in how fast you can fast forward and the audio speed.
If you’re a podcast junky like I am, and you have certain podcasts will 5 minutes of ads, then this isn’t for you. If you fast forward, even once, you’ll be automatically starting over in the podcast. Also, you had better listen in one sitting to your podcast, or it’ll start back at the beginning.
I was loving this podcast app, but now I hate it. I’m giving it a few more days, before I make a switch.
It’s awesome!!!!! 5/5
By Babe marxy
Such cool interviews. Meredith knows how to engage each guest. She’s knowledgeable in the music scene both locally and globally!
Lacks Advanced Features 2/5
I’m sure it’s fine for most people but it lacks many of the advanced features that I’ve come to expect from other podcast apps like Podcast Addict on Android and Overcast on iOS. For just one example, the lack of OPML support makes transferring my podcast library to a new phone an awful chore. The app makes you register your email address, and the “unsubscribe” link on their emails goes to a 404 Error Page Not Found. Increased payback speed makes voices sound tinny and hollow. The app crashed the first time I used it. Many other users have reported the same instability.
Podbean is cool.
Awesome map. 5/5
By Blind Pianoman
This app has improved significantly since it’s first launch. I love it!
Best podcast app. 5/5
Tried three different podcast apps including the one that comes with iPhone. This is easiest and most intuitive to use. The best layout
Great platform - only platform for some of the best podcasts 5/5
Radio War Nerd supporter and fan. Best way to listen and very glad to have a platform that makes such good content available.
FF and RW should be 15 seconds not 30
Works well on wifi... 3/5
By Again SMH
but it doesnt allow me to download or stream on data... really irritating.
still less glitchy than the apple podcast app
Best so far! 3/5
Probably the best podcast app I’ve tried so far but still needs some improvements. It has a terrific podcast selection and an easy to use interface with lots of playback options and social media integrations. However, It doesn’t auto play the next episode unless it’s added to a playlist. I also wish it had the option to only show unplayed episodes. Other than that, it is the best of the podcast apps I’ve tried so far!
Great in every way 5/5
I am a fairly new podcaster but did a lot of research before I chose a platform to podcast from.
I am glad I did my research and chose podbean.
Easily beats apples sad player 5/5
After apples iOS 11 brainfart the Podbean player is a Godsend. Makes me realize how much apple has been asleep at the wheel in the app development arena. Thanks Podbean, you’ve opened up a new world of listening choices, options and pleasures - wow!
Recommend 👍🏼 5/5
Great for the old favorites & new suggestions!
