Love the redesign, glad the app is still alive! Thanks

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.

One of the best podcast players on the App Store!

First of all, the UI of this app is one of the best in this category. Everything is logical and requires few taps to get around.

Apart from some QoL-changes, this’ll get a 5 from me.

Things I’d like to see improved upon:
- Make the Watch app a bit snappier and more in line with the iOS UI.
- Allow for a synced playlist to Apple Watch
- Make archiving an episode a bit quicker (a system like Castro would be perfect)
- Improve some of the transitions in the app (especially the one to view the queue)
