What's New

Welcome to version 4.6.3! When you think about it, Six is 2x3. Four is 6/6*4 which is pretty darn amazing on it's own. All of these numbers are divisible by 1! I'm sure you're seeing the pattern here. All of this signals the most amazing version of Pocket Casts EVER MADE! But if you don't believe MATHS and SCIENCE, then you can read some facts instead:

- Fixed some issues that could cause your episodes and playlists not to be synced

- Fixed an issue that could cause the 'Play all from Here' long press on the podcast page not to work

- Improved performance, especially on the podcast tiles page for older devices

- 72 other bug fixes! That's right 4x6x3. The maths never stops people!

- Added a way to clean up duplicates for those that had them in the 4.6 upgrade. If you have this issue and haven't re-installed please contact us via Twitter or Email and we'll show you what to do :)

- Added an extra line to our release notes just to see who gets all the way here. You people really are gluttons for punishment, are you not? I could literally keep typing into this box all day long, and some of you would just keep reading! Tap, tap, tap. Type, type, type. Click, click, click!

Wow you're still here. Do you have no self respect? Do you not value your time? I'd tell you to stop and smell the roses, but I suspect if you've made it hear you've been smelling WAY more than roses lately...

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. But don’t take our word for it:

“Pocket Casts 4 is a great podcast client for iOS 7. The push notification and sync systems are reliable, and automatic downloads finally make for an invisible download experience that happens behind the scenes and you don’t have to think about.” MacStories

“I’m in love with the natural iOS 7 design, subtle custom colors, transparencies, and intuitive interface. Plus, the syncing is easy and fast. This is what an iOS 7 podcast client should be” - App Advice


AUTO DOWNLOAD: No need to even open the app!

SYNC & BACKUP: Sync your subscriptions, playback and filters between iOS and Android devices, and backup your data to the cloud. You can now drop your phone in a toilet and not lose your podcasts. We dare you.

FILTERS: Want a list of every unplayed, downloaded podcast? Right here. How about a list of video episodes that you haven’t downloaded yet? Easy. Sorting your shows by custom categories? Done.

AIRPLAY & CHROMECAST: Cast your episodes straight to your TV with a single tap.

STORAGE: Set how many episodes of a podcast you want to keep. We’ll clean up the rest. News mode added for the contemporaries among us.

VARIABLE SPEED: Play audio or video all the way from 0.5x to 3.0x, you speed demon, you.

DESIGN: We've toiled night and day to reflect the iOS design guidelines while making your podcasts the focus. Pocket Casts has an adaptive interface - colors change to complement podcast artwork.

VIDEO & AUDIO: Pocket Casts lets you toggle video podcasts to audio and back again for when you’re on the move.

CONTROL: Control your podcasts from the control center, lock screen, headphones and Bluetooth, with custom skip intervals. Customise the start time of your episodes to skip repetitive intros.

OPML: Import or export your subscriptions easily to and from our app.

TABLET SUPPORT: It’s an equal opportunity app, with support for compatible iPhones, iPods and iPads.

SHARING: Share your favorite podcasts, episodes and positions in episodes. Sharing is caring.

SUPPORT: Provided via email, Twitter, Facebook and Google+. Heck we occasionally even log in to Reddit to say hello. We also have a rocking User Guide for those that prefer a little hand-holding.

There are many more powerful, straight forward features help you make Pocket Casts yours and in case you were wondering, here’s what Pocket Casts DOESN’T have: ads, episode limits, pushy trials or feature bloat.

It. Just. Works.
