Posted 8th OctEdited by:"lettherebedeals"
This award winning & world-renowned podcast player is now FREE, this use to be £2.99 to purchase, I have downloaded & checked it out and must admit its the best android podcast player I have seen, as for the so-called in App-Purchases do not worry its juts a few themes & icons, nothing special, they are already some decent themes built-in including dark ones.

What I love most about this app is the ability to Chromecast, got a decent interface to, ignore all the recent reviews about the updates, naturally a recent update as some older users complaining about the latest update, the kinda people who have nothing better to do than complain about updates all the time, this is a well-known & fantastic app and I am so glad I have found it. check it out.

Many problems occur when they update and that's not just myself. Look at their recent ratings. Awards given long ago. Leeds United were euro champs once upon a time ago doesn't make them any good nowadays.

This used to be a great app but the changes to the interface are quite frustrating. Just seems to need to many clicks to find something

Still good for free though as I haven't found better

Yes the in-app purchases are cloud storage, icons & themes so nothing special really.
In the years I have been using it, it was only the previous update that had issues, prior to that, flawless.

Are you sure? They emailed me a few weeks ago telling me my lifetime desktop access had been 'upgraded' to Pocket Casts Plus and it would expire in 3 years.

I've tried 6+ podcasts apps for Android, this was the best one by far.

It all changed due to uproar.
I use this on both iOS and android. Best app and love the ease of downloads on mass and sorting. Plus chromecast support! Great for quickly Kevin via the nest hub whilst feeding baby.

Ahh awesome! cheers
Isn't Google Podcasts better and also free?

Been using this for years, great app. Although there's lots of free ones available now. Google podcast seems okay and has the Gervais ones on for free

I didn't like it. Podcast Addict is much better. Don't waste your time.

Leeds have never been champions of Europe. Not at football.
Only 3.2 stars on Google play! I use Podkicker and it's great.

Why? I use this and prefer it to Stitcher and Podcast Addict.
Why not use Spotify Podcasts?

What does this offer. Spotify doesn't?
Thank you
Just tried this with my favourite ever podcast Atletico Mince. Works a treat, thanks

Google podcasts doesnt have bbc ones which is a pain.

I went from itunes to castbox, it had best reviews and most downloads. Its free but has some advertising. It also has radio stations and librovox audiobooks
I had paid for the app, but I find Castbox better

CastBox
My car has Android auto and a search for compatible apps highlighted this. Been using it since and works well

Does this have the same podcasts that are available via Spotify ?

The BBC have now denied castbox access to their material too. You have to use that sodding "sounds" app by them to get content...

you sure? there are still 717 shows from bbc and they are still putting up new episodes. will an update change it? i think there are two castbox apps "Podcast Player" and "Podcast player & Podcast app"

Google were banned as google podcasts showed up before bbc sounds in google searches

Yep, all apps should have all the same podcasts available, as they'll sync them from the iTunes database. It's still possible some apps could have exclusives though.

Hey All I have just discovered this app as an Alexa Skill to as well as Chromecast, Enable & Link via your Alexa App. In the past I used Castbox with Alexa but the Alexa skill seemed to stop working so I deleted my Castbox account, I'm glad this as an Alexa Skill also.

I stand corrected, ta for the heads up. I nearly uninstalled this as I'm sure I got a pop up stating no more bbc content recently. Just checked and there's the new stuff! Cheers again (edit replied to the wrong comment, sorry)

Damn! I was just about to ask if I could this instead of that dreadful Sounds App. BBC, if you are reading this, there are competent programmers out there who will write great apps at no cost to you, why are you wasting the license payer's money on junk like Sounds and then wasting more money telling everybody how good it is. BTW, is there an alternative to Sounds, I don't care what it is, it has to be better.

They had a bad update which is fixed now. Was 4.7 before I think.

I think I may have jumped the gun here, see my latter comment, sorry...
Went through quite a few podcast apps. Podcast addict is by far my favourite standalone app but ended up paying for Pocket Casts just because it syncs to a web app. Still wish it was as tweakable as Podcast addict
