Above average and great design, BUT…
Reduced one star because this app is not being maintained nor updated.
UCast is great to look at, but the audio quality is poor when compared to either Castro or Pocket Casts. I tested different podcasts in the car, with high fidelity headphones, and a Bluetooth speaker. In all situations, UCast audio quality needs definite improvement. Quality diminishes further when increasing playback speed 1.0 to 1.3 to 1.5.
Additional things to consider:
1) Adding support for steering wheel commands in the car (forward and rewind).
2) UCast hangs and does not continue playback when receiving a call or sending audio texts when it's connected via Bluetooth to either the car or a Bluetooth-enabled speaker.
3) There needs to be way to move the podcasts on the main window. Why can't I delete the podcast and organize them the way I want instead of having to go into settings?
