Pocket Casts is a powerful podcast manager.
We love podcasts, so we made a podcatcher that is full featured and simple to use. But don’t take our word for it:
“iOS has a ton of quality podcast managers these days, but after testing every one, our favorite is Pocket Casts because it manages to hit the sweet spot between functionality and usability.” Lifehacker
“Pocket Casts is a great podcast client...the push notification and sync systems are reliable, and automatic downloads finally make for an invisible download experience that happens behind the scenes and you don’t have to think about.” MacStories
CROSS PLATFORM SYNCING: Sync your subscriptions, playback and filters between iOS and other mobile devices as well as Pocket Casts Web.
AUTO DOWNLOAD: Customise which podcasts the app will download in the background. No need to even open the app!
CONTINUOUS PLAYBACK: Play episodes back to back, to back, to back… you get the point :wink:
VARIABLE SPEED: Play audio or video all the way from 0.5x to 3.0x, you speed demon, you.
FILTERS: Want a list of every unplayed episode? Right here. How about sorting your episodes by custom categories? Done.
NOTIFICATIONS: We’ll let you know when new episodes are released.
AIRPLAY & CHROMECAST: Cast your episodes straight to your TV with a single tap.
STORAGE: Set how many episodes of a podcast you want to keep. We’ll clean up the rest. News mode added for the contemporaries among us.
DESIGN: We've toiled night and day to reflect the iOS 8 design guidelines while making your podcasts the focus. Pocket Casts has an adaptive interface - colors change to complement podcast artwork.
VIDEO & AUDIO: Pocket Casts lets you toggle video podcasts to audio and back again for when you’re on the move.
CONTROL: Control your podcasts from the control center, lock screen, headphones and Bluetooth, with custom skip intervals. Customise the start time of your episodes to skip repetitive intros.
SLEEP TIMER: Fall asleep to your favorite boring podcasts.
REFRESH: Instantly refresh all your podcasts before other apps even have a chance to do 1! Our servers monitor your podcasts, so your phone doesn't have to.
OPML: Import or export your subscriptions easily to and from our app.
TABLET SUPPORT: It’s an equal opportunity app, with support for compatible iPhones, iPods and iPads.
SHARING: Share your favorite podcasts, episodes and positions in episodes. Sharing is caring.
DISCOVER: Find great new content with curated featured podcasts, currently trending podcasts, networks and much more.
SUPPORT: Provided via email, Twitter, Facebook and Google+. Heck we occasionally even log in to Reddit to say hello. We also have a rocking User Guide for those that prefer a little hand-holding.
COMPATIBILITY: Pocket Casts supports the following devices running iOS 8: iPhone 4s, 5, 5s, 5c, 6, 6+, iPad 2, 3, 4, iPad Air 1, 2, iPad Mini 1, 2, 3 and iPod touch 5G.
There are many more powerful, straight forward features to help you make Pocket Casts yours and in case you were wondering, here’s what Pocket Casts DOESN’T have: ads, episode limits, pushy trials or feature bloat.
It. Just. Works.
What's New in Version 5.0.1
- Fixed an issue that could cause the app to download podcasts over 3G/4G even when you have that setting turned off.
- Fixed a crash with the chapters dialog.
- Fixed my lack of sleep due to fixing these bugs over the weekend.
- Fixed videos not playing when you connect to a bluetooth speaker.
- Improved handoff support to play.pocketcasts.com, it now works even if you haven't logged in to the website first.
- Improved one thing about you while you weren't watching. That's right, that thing you thought you could never do, now you can do it. Well off you go! Take some podcasts with you of course!
- Continued to type into this updates note box, despite auto updates being a thing for years now.
Most functional podcast app
I trialled a few alternatives to Apple's podcast app and while I loved the slick look of Castro, I've ended up with PocketCasts because it has all the features I need. It syncs, auto downloads and has playlists in reverse order. Continuous play from one episode to the next in a playlist would be ideal for the car.
Functionally and aesthetically amazing
One of the most beautiful apps on my phone. It does everything I want it to and it does it seamlessly. I recommend this to anyone who is particular about the look of an app but also wants something that's functional and feature-filled. Fantastic customer support as well!
Get this one
The difference about this app from the apple preloaded one is this one works! I have had sever podcasts on the apple on that don't download and will only play with wifi connection, no such problem with this app it may cost money but money well spent if you love your podcasts! Get this one
