CarPlay issues

It pretty much does not work. Keeps on showing “Waiting for pocket casts” and hangs there.

Developer Response ,

We have a fix for this in 7.5.4 which will be out ASAP. Apologies for any inconvenience caused! As a workaround for this issue in the meantime, please try opening the app on your phone. You can make this easier (and safer!) by adding a Siri "Resume" shortcut in-app via Profile -> Settings -> Siri Shortcuts.

After the last update almost perfect

I have been waiting for a better Apple Watch app and the possibility to stream podcasts using LTE. Finally it arrived and works like a charm. 🤩 There is of course a place for improvements but for me now PocketCast is almost perfect and both iOS and WatchOS app work flawlessly. Good job and thanks. With pleasure I paid the 5$ for the Plus and extra features 😁

Still the best

I am using this app on an iPhone 6s Plus and I have never had any performance issues whatsoever. It’s pretty snappy. I love the design - it’s the best looking podcast app I know (and I have tried all of them, I think).

10/10, would recommend.
