What's New in Version 2.8.18
+ Bug fixes
Once you get past 10 or 15 podcasts, trying to manage them in Apple's Podcasts app gets unwieldy, then frustrating, and finally pointless. That's where Downcast comes in. So far I haven't found something I wanted to do that I couldn't accomplish with this app.
Here's an example: I set up a smart list that contains all of the episodes that have been played. One tap to select them all, one tap to delete, and now I've cleared up a few hundred MBs. That's something that would have taken minutes and over a hundred taps and swipes in Podcasts.
Another feature I just discovered is that you can directly download files, for those shows that might not have a feed.
If you're frustrated with Podcasts, buy this app, spend some time with it, and you'll be able fix all the problems you've found with Podcasts.
Finely Tuned Machine
After iPodcast deleted a years worth of saved podcasts on my iMac from my iPhone, I went bonkers and went on a hunt for a podcast app on my iPhone. This was highly recommended by LifeHacker. I bought and now I have peace of mind that I won’t get screwed by Apple again.
The only stupid thing about this app is that it is way underpriced. Get it now before the developer sobers up!
Keeps podcasts up to date and organized
I've been using Downcast since Apple made their useless app and this is one of the first things I redownload when I upgrade.
If you listen to a lot of podcasts then you're not going to find a better app then this to keep your podcasts updated and clean.
