I am using podcast addict to listen to lessons. I can see the characters and English translation, but not the pinyin. I don’t see pinyin on the PDF in podcast addict either. Is there any way I can see the pinyin?
Does it happen with all lessons or only one in particular?
Yes, Gwilym. That is the app. The problem happens with all lessons on my Samsung phone and also with my recently-purchased Xiaomi.
I tried with this app and also had the same issue. I’m not sure why it doesn’t display the pinyin but it sounds like something with their app. I tried with another podcast player, but they don’t display the lyrics feature sadly.

I have now found BlackPlayer Music Player. You have to download the files yourself (it’s not a podcast player), but this player shows character, pinyin and English translation in a nice clear text, which is very easy to read on my large-screen Xiaomi Max phone.
