Version 7.23

Never fear, a new feature is here! We took a poll in our virtual office about what gestures we most use on our devices and the results are in! Coming in a hot third behind shaking it out of frustration, and having to swipe back because you tapped on the wrong thing is… PULL TO REFRESH. Based on our super accurate definitely not made up scientific results we decided to add the ability to refresh your podcasts from both the podcasts and the profile screen!

Very good

It is great, feature-rich app, still some UX improvements are possible. Strange queue management: you can't delete topmost item from the list, you have to start playing some other episiode then you can remove it. Not so many extras for premium subscribers. Some transparency and privacy protection against publishers/advertisers tracking and profiling practices would be also good addition.

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 😁

My favorite podcast app

It's not perfect. Sometimes there are small hiccups, but overall it's a great app and my preferred way of consuming podcasts. Also: this app has the best release notes! 10/10
