Castro Podcast Player App Description

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! HOW IT WORKS 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. Subscribing to a podcast is no longer a commitment to listen to every episode. You don’t have to manage a huge list of subscriptions or choose a few shows and miss the rest. WHY OUR USERS LOVE CASTRO • Drag and drop podcasts to plan your listening with Castro’s unique queue • An elegant dark mode and thoughtfully designed sleep timer offer the best in night time podcast listening. • CarPlay support makes it easy to pick up where you left off while driving. • Apple Watch app to control playback and select another episode from your queue. • Episode notifications include a summary of the episode to help you decide if it interests you. Play, queue or clear the episode directly from the notification without opening the app. CASTRO PLUS Castro Plus is an optional paid subscription available for $8.99/year or $2.99/quarter (both include a one-week trial). Plus unlocks a range of advanced features: • Trim Silence — With this option on, the app will analyze audio as it plays to detect silent parts and accelerate those parts. Get through more episodes faster. • Enhance Voices improves the listening experience for many podcasts and makes it easier to hear in loud environments. Under the hood, Enhance Voices applies a dynamic compressor to increase volume just where it’s needed. • Sideloading: Import audio files directly, just by dropping them in iCloud Drive • Mono-Mix — Mixes a stereo podcast to mono, which makes it easier to hear podcasts that pan some guests on left/right channels. • Chapter Support: Artwork, Skipping & Pre-selection. • Custom settings per-podcast: Episode Limit, Trim Silence, Enhance Voices, Mono Mix, Skip Intros, Playback Speed. WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING “Castro 3 is an incredible app.” — The Sweet Setup “Castro 3 is everything Castro already was, but better.” — MacStories Castro 3 Is a Great Modern Podcast App” — Beautiful Pixels “Unlike other podcatchers, Castro's primary virtue is its simplicity and ease of use. The app combines sleek visual design with crystal clear audio.” — Tom’s Guide CASTRO PLUS SUBSCRIPTION TERMS Castro Plus costs $8.99 per year or $2.99 per quarter. 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. Privacy Policy & Terms of Use:

Castro Podcast Player App Reviews

  • Better than Overcast

    By HickNolman
    I’ve used both Castro and Overcast and for me Castro is the clear winner. The user interface is so much better as well as the Apple Watch companion.
  • Best by far

    By Spicy Girlz!
    In my opinion this is the best app for listening to podcasts period and I have tried many.
  • AirPods issue

    By CreativeUsername789
    Having an ongoing issue where podcasts will continue playing after removing AirPods from ears. In Spotify and other apps, it will pause the track. In Castro, everyone on my floor at work knows what podcast I’m listening to...
  • Keeps getting better.

    App just keeps getting better.
  • The Podcast App for me

    By mdwittenberg
    March 2019 update: The recent interface improvements are great! Castro’s triage system fits how I want to deal with my podcasts. The “Inbox and Queue” model alleviates so much of the housekeeping required of typical podcast apps; with Castro, it feels powerfully simple. Another feat of Castro: The play screen. It remains simple while still giving controls (and visual status) of everything you need like the sleep timer and podcast chapters. Killer design. A humble feature request: An option to force orientation lick

  • Needs to sync between devices

    By RA_OH
    ***Updating rating. Now that the App is stable and I am adjusting to the navigation, the more I like it. Still waiting for device sync, but overall highly recommend. ***Updated rating. Updating rating because app is much more stable since the last updates. Still waiting for device sync. Low rating primarily for lack of device sync. I paid for the extra features since that sound useful. I was surprised that the App does sync between devices. I use a work and personal phone so routinely switch between devices. I also change to my computer at work. Apple podcast does this well. As an IOS user, I find the interface a bit confusing. The UI and Interface feels very typical of Android OS...generally less intuitive and requiring more taps to find relevant settings. There is an assumption the user knows the specific meaning of a particular icon even though it’s use is not universal. For example, the play button type of icon really means queue or list. The In-box is the list. The library icon helps, so I see some improvement Feels like a lot of navigation if I need I need to adjust settings for a particular podcast An option to add labels in the icons might help though I know many believe it adds clutter. Will continue to try for short time longer, but cancel subscription if device syncs is not added shortly.
  • No more subscriptions

    By DesignatedDriver
    I’ve had enough of subscriptions. I will do without now; I find I just don’t need subscription apps that much. Eventually I suppose others will grow up as well.
  • Great app made better.

    By P_J_P
    Already a fan. Excited about the updates, especially the Discover tab. Keep up the good work!
