Castro Podcasts 3
MANAGE YOUR PODCAST HABIT. Free with IAP | supertop.co
Since Casto 2 in 2016, it’s upped a version number and dropped the price tag. The basic app is now free; advanced features are available with an in-app purchase of a subscription ($11.99 per year).
The big player here is Overcast, which has a loyal following, but we found Castro’s unique method of treating incoming podcast episodes like an email inbox more intuitive to use if you want to keep racking up things to listen to. With a tap, you move episodes from your inbox to a queue, or send them to the archive for later perusal. It’s that simple, although if you want to have multiple playlists to choose from you’re out of luck.
Now that it’s free, we’re big fans. You have to pay for a subscription for advanced features like Night Mode, chapter selection and setting time to skip intros, but you can live without these things. As a quick and dirty podcast player, Castro is now a real contender.
