I’m so happy that I get to listen to so many things conveniently through this easy to use app
Very nice app. Much variety in choices. Love it 5/5
Very good app
I love it.....when it works. Which is about 50/50. I feel like I am CONSTANTLY trying to get this thing to play. Do not everrrr try to go forwards or backwards cuz then it’s all over till about..... the next day lol. It’s quite awful and pretty infuriating to be fighting with an app to get it to do its job and just play your shi. I’m currently looking for another app that won’t have sooooo many issues playing podcasts.
Learning and Growing on the Go 4/5
Podbean is my go to app for building myself from the inside out. I’m in the classroom almost every where. I’m a pupil of life for life. It provides me access to learned people to sharpen me spirit, soul and body.
Good stuff 5/5
Top notch podcast app
I’m done. 1/5
After successfully using Podbean for a year or two, the past two months, it has degraded to the point that it is absolutely frustrating to use. I repeatedly messaged and never received a response. It’s been abandoned? I’m done.
Used to be a big fan... 3/5
By the fisher queen
But I HATE the new update!
It crashes way more, I think it is causing my phone to overheat as well.
And finally GIVE ME BACK MARK AS PLAYED. My god, I can’t keep track of what I’ve listened to any other way!
I understand that creators are having trouble on their side as well so I gather it is not just listeners.
Podbean is great! I like that you can make the episodes go in cronologic order, has a sleep timer, and it’s straightforward and easy to use. I've tried several others, but Podbean is my very favorite! I use it every single day! It's like visiting a dear old friend!
Podbean Newbie 5/5
Self explanatory and easy to use
It's great 4/5
Works really well, most of the time

Terrible options and settings 1/5
The podcasts are great - the app is terrible and worsens with each update. My sorting preferences no longer are maintained each time I go into the app – this is terrible and I'm not sure why it changed. Also, if I pause in the middle of a podcast and come back later, the app does not hold my place within the podcast, which is also very frustrating. I appreciate the app but must say that it seems to get worse with every update and I am starting to look for alternatives.
Too many steps, poor user interface 1/5
By Just me in Michigan 77
You must edit immediately before saving as a draft on the app. Ridiculous. To download from the app for editing you have to connect to iTunes, and download from there.
WAY too many steps and not user friendly.
Rob Bell 5/5
Love how you think, Rob! Miss you in GR.
Love this app 5/5
I love the download listen later option
Great way to stay informed 5/5
By Union Flash
Our company uses Odbean for weekly updates on new product releases.
Great place to put on a podcast and listen to a podcast! Easy to learn and will help you put you podcast on ITunes! Check out talkingdodd podcast!
Great alternative to the apple app 4/5
I love this app but do wish it would automatically play next episodes of new downloads like apple does. Otherwise, no complaints.
Great app! 5/5
By Haiti user
Appreciate that app will download podcasts and save for me!
I get the control 5/5
By Fattie Mattie 2x4
I’ve always struggled with the apple native podcast app. Podbean gives me more control over which episodes I download and how they are sorted. Or if the functionality is on par with apples app, I actually understand how this one works. It is my go-to podcast app.
Better than apples version
All I could ask for. 5/5
Trouble free. Easy to use. All I could ask for.
Great App! 5/5
By Born unlock
Really enjoy this app as a creator and a listener!
Great app 5/5
Much more content than the podcast app by apple
Simply does not work 2/5
By See you cowboy
or it will work just long enough to walk away or put your device back in your pocket then stop.
If you like being frustrated by an app and constantly have to be trouble shooting things then this app is for you.. you might like Itunes as well :D
sorry podbean people.. I used this app for a long time because it is one of the few that are not alwaya trying to download the media but I am just tired of trying to figure out why this wont play my media 70% of the time.
By Skinney 300
Podbean has everything that is needed to listen for hours. Serial and Real Crime Profile are worth your time. Amazing. Five star rating would give more but five is tops.
Podcast bean 5/5
I’d just rather listen than read and this app wins for variety and variety.
I love this app 5/5
By Ben Seyi-Ola
I love this app, it’s really great.
Cool Daddy 5/5
Radical dude.... it’s real groovy. Be there or be square.
It’s ok 3/5
Stop asking me to review. Yes it’s ok. Thanks.
Excellent app 5/5
By Alaska mandingo
This app is a highly simple and well built with ease of use.
Easy to Use 4/5
Love how easy this app makes uploading podcasts on the go. Fairly easy to navigate and I haven’t come across any issues as of yet.
Love it. 5/5
By Standard Chimpanzee
Nice selection of podcasts. Could not be easier to open and listen to.
Awesome app 5/5
This app is great it allows me the ability to podcast with minimal effort and it’s easy to use.
I love the app but it just started to crash.
By Dax Runs
I bought the paid version to remove the ads. A few months later, they’re back!
Crashes after 6/12/2018 update 1/5
By Perri Perrita
Worked fine before. I actually liked this app over other podcast players. But after yesterday's update (6/12/18) it crashes immediately upon opening. Yes, I deleted then re-downloaded. Yes, I restarted my phone. Still crashes. Am using iOS 11.4.
Used When Apple Podcasts Malfunctioned 5/5
By Jeff 'Teach' Dean
Best Podcast App out there. Has the podcasts that I like. Use this to listen to Podcasts once & done. Use apple’s app if I want to keep them.
Owl pellets 4/5
By Big Orange Bird Lover
Awesome app 5/5
Great and easy interface.
Podbean is perfect for me 5/5
Podbean has been a perfect companion for my podcast hosting and for the podcasts I listen to.
Historical figures 5/5
By betsy carolyn
Very entertaining and informative. Well written and performed
It had one job... 1/5
I downloaded this with the sole purpose of listening to The Unbelievable Truth and all I get is an error: “Error opening file” and that’s it. On every single episode. What an utter waste.
Frustrating Flaws 2/5
Although this app doesn’t have many flaws, the ones it has are VERY frustrating. The worst one (to me) is that it doesn’t save my place in a podcast. If I don’t finish listening to a podcast all at once, if I pause it to do something else, when I come back it has no indication that I ever listened to it. I have to start from the beginning or scan through to try to find where I left off. This is such a basic function of a podcast app, and it needs to be fixed.
Midnight entertainment 5/5
I work midnights and music does not always cut it, I have been listening for seven months and enjoy it tremendously. Alleys great quality content and always the latest. Always a great listen to so many pod cast. Thanks
Ever since Apple updated the Podcasts app and made it terrible, been using this. This is fantastic. Such a better layout and very user friendly.
It is the perfect app for increasing the listening skill.
