Everything iOS podcast should have been

Ive tried every podcast app in the IOS store including the paid ones and i always come back to the iOS built in app until i found Castaway and its the most well designed and fluid. This is a top notch app. Try it and you wont ever need or want another one. And there is not adds! I cant believe this is a free app, the best podcast player is absolutely free!

Little sluggish but pretty solid

Update: very buggy after latest iOS updates. Mark Played button jumping around entire screen

Pretty awesome podcast player. Can get a little glitchy at time (iOS 11 on iPhone 8), but otherwise it’s my go to! Great job guys!

Ps: one podcast I love was missing on search list. Emailed them and the next day it was there! Talk about fast support!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. I made significant performance improvements all around the app in version 2.7, which was just released. Please give it a try, and get in touch with me at feedback@castaway.fm if you have additional concerns.
