Downloading Podcasts

  • Once an episode is downloaded you can play it without using your mobile data, making it perfect for listening during your commute or run.
  • You can also save data by disabling mobile data for CastBox in your phone’s settings, then CastBox will only play while connected to WiFi.
  • For those with external storage on your phone, you can change the storage location of your downloads by selecting SD Card in your phone’s settings menu.

Organizing Your Podcasts

Have you downloaded all of your episodes, but can’t decide what to start listening to? CastBox has a useful sorting feature which makes organization much easier.

  • Go to your downloads and click on the three dotted icon on the upper right hand corner of the page.
  • Then, select “Sort” and choose whether you want your episodes to be sorted by download time or update time.
  • You can also go directly to the Channel Info page and select the sorting icon next to the search bar to arrange episodes from newest to oldest or oldest to newest.
