Cosmicast is a beautiful podcast player built with iOS design guidelines in mind. It’s as useful as it is gorgeous. With a customisable grid layout and three sets of themes to choose from, it’s most definitely a podcast player for you.
There are no complicated user accounts or settings to configure. You can pick it up and get started immediately. This is made even faster with OPML podcast importing, and a handy discover section that’s categorised effectively in a minimal manner to show you only what you want to see.
The stunning podcast player makes listening to your favourite podcasts a joy, and tapping the large controls give you a wonderful haptic response. Long-holding certain buttons presents further options to enhance your experience and fine-tune aspects of the app. The player is always accessible from any page via a swipe up gesture with two fingers. Awesome.
We’ve also thrown in some cool things like Drag and Drop podcast rearranging, 3D Touch support, iMessage Stickers, and Siri Shortcuts! We hope you enjoy using Cosmicast!

Ratings and Reviews
App Ruined by dark background and purple font
An amazingly awesome podcast app but completely ruined by the unpractical black background with purple font. I am a fan of the dark mode that has has become really popular nowadays but not on this app. PLEASE PLEASE CAN YOU CHANGE IT BACK TO THE STANDARD WHITE BACKGROUND WITH BLACK FONT. I will be sticking with the Apple Podcast App in the meantime.
Developer Response ,
Hey, thank you for your great feedback. You can change themes within the app by tapping the top-left icon and selecting the 'moon' theme icon to revert back to a white light background. Hope this helps!
The easiest, most intuitive podcast player
I have used Overcast and others, but have found their layout and navigation very annoying. Glad I have found this app, I hope it stays updated!
Works well apart from...
I like this app it would be almost perfect if it saved where i’m up to when i only partially listen to a podcast... it seems when i close the app and reopen it i have to remember where i was up to.
