Ratings and Reviews
With a long commute and a desk job, I listen to a LOT of podcasts. I’m subscribed to dozens of podcasts and am known to binge listen, so I figured, why not try this out? It high key feels like a scam — how are you using our data, if it’s worth paying for? That’s not my main problem though, since I haven’t looked into it though.
I have two main problems. One, the UI is TERRIBLE. There’s no playlist for things that have freshly come out, so you have to keep up with the badges on the podcasts you follow (scrolling through dozens to find what’s new....) and since there is no podcast playlist, it auto-plays the next episode of the podcast instead of smoothly going to the next thing that came out of what you subscribed. Means I have to be on my phone actively checking to make sure what’s playing is what I want. Fine. Whatever. The real dealbreaker for me is that it seems to update slower than other apps. I listen to a podcast on Tuesdays around midnight PST, for example and while my other apps had the new episode when I woke up at 7am PST, this app didn’t have it until the afternoon!
If I keep using it, it’s only going to be when I’m binging one podcast. It’s a real pain to use in my day to day.
Listen and get paid
I have been listening to podcasts on Podcoin for about one month. I used to use another podcast app, but when I saw that I could earn while I listen I said why not. I just got a $5 gift card from podcoin. It really works. I figure if I listen at the same rate, about 6 hours per day, until the end of November, I will have $40 and be able to get Christmas presents. There are all sorts of podcasts to listen to. All the podcasts I listen to on another app are on podcoin also. Yes there are other features that would make listening on this app more enjoyable, and other apps have these features, but the other apps don’t pay you to listen. Also, if you don’t want the gift cards, you can donate your coins to a charity. They have many to choose from. Give it a try. What do you have to lose.
Cool Idea, Poor Execution
It’s a pretty good app but I have 2 complaints:
A. There is a major delay when I press play. Sometimes it takes up to 5 seconds to play, as compared to the milliseconds it takes for Apple Podcasts to start playing.
B. The notifications for a new ep don’t disappear. When one of my podcasts puts out a new ep, I see the little yellow dot but when I click on the episode to get rid of the dot it doesn’t go away. Even when I listen to the new episode fully, it doesn’t go away. Days later, I open the app, and that small, demon dot haunts me. If you don’t get rid of it soon, I may end up writing a screenplay for a horror movie about a notification that never disappears and I WILL include the name of your app, lawyers be damned. Anyways, jokes aside, this is a cool app that just needs a couple of things to be fixed.
