Description

Castamatic is the best app to listen to podcasts on any iOS device. Quickly assemble a custom sequence of shows to listen to or create a smart playlist, and listen to your favorite shows with enhanced audio quality, thanks to Castamatic's machine learning enhanced Auto-leveler DSP algorithm.

Highlights
---------------
The "On the Go" playlist lets you pick the episodes you want to listen to in your next listening session and assemble them in a playlist just before leaving. The On the Go playlist will mantain the same order in which the episodes were added. You can then move and rearrange them manually. As soon as an episode has been completely listened to it will be automatically removed from the On the Go playlist. You will always find your On the Go playlist synced on all your devices.
