What's New in Version 6.7.1

The more geeky among you probably know that companies like Intel used to have a 'tick tock' strategy, which was just a silly way to say they make lots of changes, then they make small tweaks, then they make lots of cha...well you get the idea. We do that too! So 6.7.1 brings you:
- CarPlay reliability improvements (for those seeing the disconnected from Pocket Casts message)
- Fixes for some files that wouldn't play with Trim Silence or Volume Boost enabled
- Some performance improvements and crash fixes

What could the next tick bring? Only...wait for it..._time_ will tell. Get it?! Because clocks go tick and they tell ti...never mind.

Best Podcast Podcatcher App on iOS

This podcast app (podcatcher) is the best available.

A few of my favorite features:
- ease of adding podcasts to up next / now playing queue
- Apple Watch notifications to make pods as played or add them to existing "now playing" list
- shows listening stats including time saved via skipping ahead, total time listened
- skips white space during pods (no speaking is occurring)
- 3D Touch enabled for the app icon
- dark and light mode themes
- has a companion website that syncs with the app to keep up with your listening progress
- syncs works fairly well (iPad to iPhone to iPod touch to website)
- well designed interface
- makes finding new podcasts easy via its search page which shows trending podcasts
- Ability to create smart playlists
- volume boost
- multiple play pack speeds that can be applied to all or individual podcast
- small install size
- Listening stats show how many hours days etc. spent listening along with the time saved from skipping, listening speed adjustments, etc.
- MANY MORE that I forgot.

Well-designed app, could use some more functions.

I just started using Pocket Casts a few days ago and so far I'm a big fan. It's well-designed and syncs perfectly between my phone and the web app, which was the main reason I bought it. I do wish there was the ability to select and edit multiple episodes to mark played or unplayed. I know you're able to edit all of them in bulk, but I'd like to do this for multiple individual episodes. I'm finding it incredibly tedious editing them one by one to update every podcast with what episodes I have and haven't listened to. The ability to do this would make it a near perfect podcast played.

The BEST Podcast App Available

I've tried about 6 different podcasting apps and this one is the best. Let me name a few features of why:

Want to have one podcast download and keep everything?
Want to have another podcast download and keep only the most recent podcast?
Want to have a podcast not auto download any episodes?

Great! This app can do that.

Want to create your own categories and filters of podcasts?

Great! This app can do that.

Want to change the layout of your podcast artwork?

Great! This app can do that.

Want to have a beautiful app-store-esque navigation and browser for new podcasts?

Great! This app has that.

Want to see podcast show notes inline with the podcast controls and your up-next list?

Great! This app can do that.

You need this app. Stop thinking about it and go buy it right now!!

Glad to see the devs are concerned with CarPlay! I just bought a new car and this is a critical feature that needs to work. Can't wait to try out the app again!
