Castbox is, in our opinion, one of the best podcast apps in the Google Play Store. It’s completely free, there are no ads to get annoyed every few minutes and it works smoothly. No modifications needed for the design because the app offers a very beautiful user interface. The app gives all the important features to get the best listening experience.

Is this app worthy to pay for it? It depends on you. PocketCast looks very well designed and offers features as much as CastBox do and even some extra ones.
