Automatic dark mode

We finally received automatic dark mode support! This is now by some distance the best podcast player. One improvement I would request is that syncing needs to be better, sometimes podcasts play from the beginning while I was halfway through on another.

Like Podcasts? Make sure you get this app

The best podcast app I've seen and used so far.
Also very attentive developer. They listed to input, do work on further App improvements and frequently update the App with as bonus hilarious descriptions of the improvement done :-)

I literally just bought this app. Wasted money, as it turns out, because from now on it’s ‘free’. Which apparently means I have to pay again to have access to Pocket Casts Plus... Not very nice! 😩
The app itself is quite alright, hence 4 stars.
