What's New

Do you ever feel like sometimes you need to take some time out, and just work on yourself? Not going shopping for new clothes, or getting a new haircut but just getting more into shape and altering a few things? No? Well neither do we...why are we even talking about this?

Oh wait, Pocket Casts! Version 4.5! We've spent quite a long time re-jiggering the internals of the app and getting rid of a lot of small bugs and annoyances. This is our mid-year gift to you. We've also added a few new things too, here's some highlights:
- Chromecast support.
- New Trending chart to show you what podcasts all hip-cats are currently subscribing to.
- You can now change countries for the Top Charts, or choose world wide. Handy if you're a podcaster and you want to see where you rank worldwide or just to check in on your favourite podcasts.
- Fixed a long standing play/pause bug.

There are so many other small things in v4.5 that we'd be here all day if we listed them all. Suffice it to say it's the best version of Pocket Casts ever made, and if you love it we'd appreciate it if you could buy a megaphone, climb to the top of a tall structure in your local neighbourhood and tell the world! Failing that I guess a review on the App Store would do, but really the megaphone is our first choice, it should be yours too ;)

App Description

Pocket Casts is a powerful Podcast manager for iPhone and iPad.

We love podcasts, so we made a podcatcher that is full featured and simple to use. Simply add your favorite podcasts, and you'll be able to download or stream new episodes as they are broadcast.

Pocket Casts is the best way to listen to podcasts.

- Sync and backup: Your subscriptions, podcasts, playlists & progress can be synced with our server and your other iOS devices. Setting up a new phone has never been easier - if you drop your phone in the toilet, your podcasts are easily restored from their sanctuary in the cloud.

- Powerful episode filters: Customise the way Pocket Casts lists your episodes. Want a list of every unplayed, downloaded podcast? Right here. How about a list of video episodes that you haven’t downloaded yet? Easy.

- Stunning interface: We’ve toiled night and day to bring you the simplest and most powerful Pocket Casts interface to date. It has an adaptive interface - colors change to compliment podcast artwork.

- Auto download: no need to even open the app!
- Skippety Skip: quick skip back and forward controls, that you can customise yourself.
- Sleep Timer: Fall asleep to your favorite boring podcasts
- Auto cleanup: set how many episodes of a podcast you want to keep, and have our app clean up the old ones for you.
- Instant refresh: Refresh 50 podcasts in the same time it takes other apps to do 1! (our server monitors your feeds, so your phone doesn't have to)
- Airplay & Chromecast: because sometimes podcasts are better on your TV
- Sharing: share your podcasts, episodes and positions in episodes with your friends.

There are many powerful, straight forward features that are great to look at and easy to use.
