What's New

After every major release has to come the bugs/fixes update, right? No matter how long you beta test a few things always slip through. The marvellously named 7.0.1 is no different:
- Fixes an issue where the Discover page could be blank in some regions of the world.
- Fixed some iPhone SE issues with text getting cut off and buttons not being in quite the right places. We love you tiny phone people. Never change.
- Fixed some issues with syncing.
- Updated the search on both the Podcast and Discover pages to scroll away when you scroll the page up. The Podcast one is also now hidden by default, but easy to get to by just pulling down.
- Fixed some issues with the app badge counting too many episodes.
- Fixed some issues with the video player when moving to the next thing in your Up Next list.
- Fixes some crashes too.
- Added better handling for when a podcast doesn't load in the Discover section.
- Fixed some CarPlay crashes as well as archived episodes showing up in the podcasts section
- Player now shows chapter info as you scrub the timeline (for episodes that have chapters)
