What's New

Version 4.1

- New option to auto-delete episodes 24 hours after completion
- Password-protected podcasts are now supported (in the Add URL screen)
- New Smart Resume feature: Jumps back by up to a few seconds after having been paused to help remind you of the conversation, and slightly adjusts seeks to fall between spoken words when possible. (Option in Nitpicky Details)
- Fixed bugs related to glitchy audio, stalled playback, failed downloads, and disappearing play controls
- Extremely large playlists now only show the most/least-recent 500 episodes to improve app performance for users with very high subscription counts
- Rotation support is now iPad-only; iPhone rotation has proven too costly to maintain for its extremely low usage. My apologies to the few people who did use it.

Editors' Notes

How about some podcasts you wanted to listen to?

Amazing App


This app is fantastic. Very clear interface with appropriate complexity to allow personalising how it works without over complication, nice big buttons for use in the car. Thanks so much to the developer. I wish I could make a donation or one off purchase as I don’t feel able to subscribe the amount they want but would love to support in a limited way.

The iOS 11 podcast app is rubbish

I’ve always used the Apple podcast app but the latest version is completely crap. I’m very happy to say there’s this app which is simple, clean and easy to use.
