Castaway is a minimalist podcast app for playing and managing audio podcasts.

- Browse podcasts by what's popular, by podcast networks, or search for podcasts by name or author.
- Subscribe to your favorite podcasts or listen to individual episodes from the directory without the need to subscribe to the entire podcast.
- Supports streaming new episodes, as well as downloading episodes locally to your device.
- Utilizes background refresh to ensure that your podcasts are always up to date.
- Receive notifications when new episodes are available for listening.
- New episodes download automatically in the background for you. If you prefer to stream new episodes, you can disable automatic downloads.
- Save your favorite episodes, so that you'll always have them available for repeat listens.
- Adjustable playback rate that can be configured globally as well as per podcast.

Ratings and Reviews

Little sluggish but pretty solid


Update: very buggy after latest iOS updates. Mark Played button jumping around entire screen

Pretty awesome podcast player. Can get a little glitchy at time (iOS 11 on iPhone 8), but otherwise it’s my go to! Great job guys!

Ps: one podcast I love was missing on search list. Emailed them and the next day it was there! Talk about fast support!



Castaway has a clean look and is incredibly simple to use. A lot of people overlook discovery -- how can users find popular podcasts, new content, etc. -- and I think Castaway is very good at this. Overall, it's got everything a modern podcast player should.

There's really nothing wrong with it - it's a very good app. The one star reduction reflects features that I want that Castaway doesn't offer. There's no dark theme option and I'd like a vocal boost option that some of the other podcast apps have.



I've tried several other podcast apps. I've had issues with all of them updates or other things. This app has worked flawlessly for me I highly recommend it.
The only thing I would like is an easy way to delete unplayed episodes.
