Does downloading a podcast app on your phone slow it down? Mine seems to lag now since I put the podcast app on my phone.
That depends on how the app was designed. Some free apps slow the phone down as they fetch advertising. Perhaps there is something in the app Settings that will keep it from automatically looking for new podcasts. You can read the reviews in the Play Store. If you give us the name of the app someone here might have experience with it.
Basically, it is not that it is a podcast program. Any poorly made program or program that uses a lot of phone resources can slow it down. That can be any type of app.
I use Podcast Addict quite extensively, without impact. If you’re not tied to a specific app, you may want to give it a try.
