What's New

As four Australian guys in colourful shirts once said: I'll take you driving in my car, car, oh I'll take you driving, oh I'll...yeah ok it works better in song form. CarPlay support is here! You've been asking for it and we've been working hard to bring it to you. Browse your podcasts and filters to find the perfect podcast, then control playback easily all from your fancy new car stereo. For those of you without fancy new car stereos, now is the time to convince your significant other that your car is about to fall apart and for the good of the planet, the economy and the country, it's time to buy a new car with CarPlay support. Pocket Casts said so, and we can't let them down!

If the above plan fails, then there's always plan B: buy an iPad instead. We've added grid sorting and unread badges to the iPad version for those that want their podcast grids to look _just so_.

Of course, there's lots of bug fixes and minor enhancements as well in this release that would honestly take me too long to list. So why on earth are you still reading this change log, go find some podcasts to listen to!
