What’s New

Version 7.17.2

I feel like our release number has been at home on lockdown and hasn't had a haircut in a while. 7.17.2 is quite the mouthful! Anyway, what's new you ask? I assume you're asking, I can't actually hear you FYI but why else would you be here?!

Changes"
- Improved the speed selection button in CarPlay
- Fixed an issue where the tab bar could shuffle over and tapping the blank space would crash the app
- Learnt that it's spelt "trigerred" not "triggered". I put those two backwards just to trigger you. You're welcome.
- Added a setting to open show notes links in your browser instead of in app
- Fixed some issues with the watchOS app

Could have Been 5 stars, but…

So, I just moved my podcast listening to this app and I love it. I would have given it 5 stars, but there’s one significant problem. The app on the Apple Watch doesn’t work when the watch isn’t connected to the iPhone. All it does is control the playback on the iPhone.

Best out there

This is by far the best podcast app out there, attentive developers and great update notes.

Still the best

Lots of haters around here talking about the redesign. At first the changes were a bit jarring but after a couple of updates things are getting back to what we expected. Keep up the good work!
