What's New in Version 6.8
Version 6.8 comes in hot, like a wrecki...you know what? Everyone is trying to be funny in release notes these days. That was meant to be our thing people! We did it back i 2008 before it was cool. So just to keep being different these release notes are going to be super serious:
- Apple Watch app! See what's playing and control playback. Check out your Up Next list and pick a new episode to play or just browse one of your filters and find an episode that takes your fancy. One tap and it starts playing on your phone. Like a remote control, but better, because it's strapped to your wrist you'll never lose it down a cou...oh sorry no jokes. It's good because it's on your wrist and always hand...I mean available.
- The app now tries harder to update episode data that authors have mis-labelled. Should fix things like files that say they are audio but are really videos. That's right, there are video podcasts where you get to be all up close and...sorry almost made another joke.
- CarPlay fixes. We unfortunately had to move back from a tabbed interface to a list based one. I preferred the tabs, but they are unfortunately buggy and cause connection issues. Your podcast list is now sorted the same as your phone and your Up Next list now also includes the currently playing episode in it. It's the best CarPlay version yet, and we think, you'll love i...sorry did it again.
There's also some bug fixes too. What do those big companies say..."Bug fixes and improvements". There you go. Can't get more serious than that.
Awesome app with some needed features
This would have 5 stars and I'm going to keep using it but there are some features missing that really shouldnt be. Search is a big issue search only seems to search the author or podcast name and not other meta-data. So finding a specific episode or say a bunch of episodes featuring "XXXX" under discovery is very hard or near impossible without first finding the episodes in the Apple app. Then once you find a podcast you have to subscribe in order to see the episode list, another annoying issue. When it comes to a podcast you subscribe to - the episode list is not very clear on what you have listened to or what you have not - the use of the played episodes divider doesn't make much sense because above and below it are episodes you wouldn't have listened to. I eventually worked out that the ones I have downloaded/played seem to show the size of the file while those I have not don't. I'm not even sure if that is accurate but adding a simple "episode played" icon or color variation to the list of ones played would be great. One last thing that would put you guys at 6 stars would be bookmarking - I would love to be able to bookmark points in a podcast - haven't found an app yet that can do it and if you guys did it I would be a user for a life. Great work, hope to make this 5 stars soon.
Edit: Update brought Apple Watch app! Now 5 stars! Really happy. Just wish I could change volume from the watch app. Maybe in a future update. Still holding out for iPad to iPhone handoff.
Much better looking and customizable UI than Overcast. Hope they fix the handoff to allow switching back and forth from iPad to iPhone. It wants to take you to the webapp currently. Maybe the addition of an Apple Watch app to set the up next episode will come in the future. As it is now I like it a little more than Overcast.
Love this app!!!
I listen to podcasts all the time. When I'm getting ready in the morning, when I'm doing chores, during down time at work, when I'm driving, etc. I have not had any problems that I used to have with the apple podcast app of freezing or skipping or distortion. I downloaded this about 6.5 months ago and love it! You can skip intros, trim silence, and speed up or slow down in smaller increments and with all the options that I have enabled I have saved time in the total of 1 day and 18 hours!
