Castaway - Podcast Player

By Philip Viso

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


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.

Customer Reviews


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.
