How Does Podcast Addict Work?

The interface of the Podcast Addict app is pretty simple. Once you download and install the app, you will be able to search by name, category, or network, or just scroll through the most listened podcasts at the moment. Once you click on a podcast, you will see its episodes list with the latest episodes being on top. You also have a download button, if you want to listen to them offline.

Is Podcast Addict Safe?

Podcast Addict has no history of security issues and seems as safe as other podcast apps. In 2020, Podcast Addict was temporarily suspended from the Google Play store, the reason being having podcasts in it that mention the coronavirus which content had not been approved by government entities or public health organisations at the time. This event is a subject to controversy because Google has its own podcast platform, thus making it difficult to know if this was due to spreading a non confirmed information or because of concurrency issues.

Is Podcast Addict Free?

You can download and use this app for free. However, it contains ads and in-app purchases.
