Castro is a beautiful, full-featured podcast player that makes it easy to track and manage lots of podcasts at the same time. Only listen to the episodes you want and easily skip the rest, queue up hours of podcasts at a time and enjoy a seamless listening experience with carplay compatibility, chapter support, trim silence and much, much more!


1. New episodes land in the NEW tab. Read their descriptions, add episodes you like to your QUEUE, and clear the rest.

2. Press play to listen to episodes from your QUEUE in order. Queued episodes are downloaded automatically.

3. Re-order your QUEUE to plan your next few hours of listening at any time. Browse your LIBRARY to review the back catalogue, quickly access starred shows, and see your listening history.

Castro Plus costs $18.99 per year. Prices are in US dollars and may vary in countries other than the US.

Castro Plus is charged to your iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase. It will renew on the day before the current subscription period ends. You can cancel auto-renewal any time from the Castro settings screen.

You can switch between the two subscription periods after you pick one, but your trial period will end immediately if you do, so it's best to wait till your free week is over before changing.

Subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Your account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period. Subscriptions may be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to the user's Account Settings after purchase. Any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription to that publication, where applicable.

The inbox is the killer feature

Let’s face it: for at least half of the podcasts you subscribe to, you don’t need to hear every episode. With Castro, you’re not spending any time in the app cleaning up auto-downloaded episodes that are not that interesting. What you do:

- Set Castro to auto-download your favorite podcasts and automatically add them to your listening queue
- Let the rest come to your inbox; from there you decide if you want to download them or not

For this feature alone Castro deserves five stars.

Great app but expensive

The best when it was still a buyable app. Works great and intuitive, queing system is more straightforward than apple’s, 1.1 x speed and sound enhancements I use all the time. The new subscription model is understandable but too expensive (with still no syncing), I wouldn’t recommend it now.

Fantastic app with great features

I’ve been using a vast array of podcasting apps over the past couple of years, but this is by far my favorite.

Anything from the trim silence, to managing your inbox works like a charm and new features are added all the time.

I think the strength of the app lies in its simplicity and native feel. It’s never crashed on me and works well with my watch.

Keep up the good work guys!
