What's New in Version 3.0.1
3.0.1 is a minor bugfix update for 3.0, which had:
- New design with many big and small UI improvements
- All-new watchOS 3 app
- Easy queue management
- Widget, rich notifications, 3D Touch, and more
Best podcast player
Update: new 3.0 redesign is a home run. Excellent usability, consistent UI paradigms to other popular apps including Music. Easier to use, especially one-handed. Solid 5 stars!
A great podcasting app
The latest update made many subtle improvements to the user interface that have improved on an already great app. Even though I paid for the app originally, I just subscribed to show my support for the developer.
Of course, Voice Boost and Smart Speed are both great and the reasons that I originally paid for the app. They can taking an amateurish-sounding podcast and make them sound so much better.
Very good app
There are some things I would change, but overall solid application.
