What’s New

Version 7.18

Version 7.18, the version you didn't know you wanted until you had it.

- Added a way to re-enable old private feeds that might have been turned off when you stopped paying, but you're now paying again. If that sounds like you, check out the settings for that podcast.
- Added a way to delete your account (be careful, there is no undo on this, but there are plenty of warnings along the way).
- Voice over enhancement for episode rows: the app will now tell you which podcast they are associated with.
- Added season and episode meta data to lock screen/bluetooth devices so you can more easily identify the episode you're listening to.

Best podcast app

Hands down the best podcast app on the App Store.

Only reason why I am not giving 5 stars, is that the sync to Apple Watch functionality is, to me, confusing and not intuitive. Why can’t I just select an episode to sync? Adding it to next up doesn’t immediately sync it, and sometimes just doesn’t work.

Laksemös ,

Nice UI. But...

... why am I not able to get the same search results as I am getting in Instacast? For this reason it’s not useful for me.

Developer Response ,

Hi there! Each app would use a different search algorithm - if there are podcasts you aren't finding in Pocket Casts, please reach out to us at support@pocketcasts.com and we will see if we can add them for you. Thanks!
