Description

Castro is a beautiful, full-featured podcast player that makes it easy to track lots of podcasts. Here’s how it works: 1. New episodes land in your INBOX. Read their descriptions, add episodes you like to your QUEUE, and archive the rest. 2. Press play to listen to episodes from your QUEUE in order. Queued episodes are downloaded automatically. 3. Add to and re-order your QUEUE to plan your next few hours of listening at any time. Browse your ARCHIVE to review your back catalogue of subscriptions, quickly access starred shows, and see your listening history. With Castro, subscribing to a podcast doesn’t mean making a commitment to listen to every episode. You don’t have manage a huge list of subscriptions or choose a few shows and miss the rest. FEATURES - Drag and drop podcasts to triage and reorder your next few hours of 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. - Our servers find new episodes across every podcast, so your phone doesn’t have to, saving battery life and data usage. - Episode notifications include a summary of the episode to help you decide if it interests you. Play, queue or archive 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: - Sideloading allows import of audio files directly, just by dropping them in iCloud Drive. - 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 and a peak limiter to increase volume just where it’s needed. - 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: Skipping & Pre-selection. - Chapter and episode artwork. - Customize settings per-podcast: Episode Limit, Trim Silence, Enhance Voices, Mono Mix, Skip Intros, Playback Speed. REVIEWS “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.

    Great user interface, simple, fast, the only thing I can’t figure out is how to cast from the app and that would be a huge plus. - autor:dtxmax - title:Almost everything I wanted and nothing else

  • What I was looking for, has some bugs

    By 3
    Regular iPhone app kept unsubscribing me from podcasts, and spotify doesn’t do what I need. This app so far has always put new episodes into my inbox, then its a quick swipe to either download and queue up the episode, or archive and ignore (which spotify doesn’t do). Pretty basic requests for a podcast app which seems to be tough to find. Reason for 3 stars - if you’re playing an episode then answer a call, it continues to play in the background so you either have to have a conversation over it, or hang up and call back. Probably a related problem is it doesn’t stop playing when I turn my car off and it unconnects from Bluetooth - it will pause then continue out loud. - autor:jjacks0220 - title:What I was looking for, has some bugs

  • Critical Flaw Prevents Perfection

    By 2
    This app truly streamlines the listening experience with your incoming feeds of new podcast shows and episodes. However, a lack of true iCloud or multi-device, multi-platform syncing prevents a higher rating. If you’re a user that switches between devices regularly and want your podcast library to always be updated in real-time, sadly this is not the app that can get that done. - autor:Skorpio47i - title:Critical Flaw Prevents Perfection

  • So much better than Apple podcasts!

    By 5
    I am so glad to have found this app! I found myself continually annoyed, frustrated and confused by the Apple podcast app, which is really horrible. Castro is easy to grasp, simple to use, and does everything I need. I also love how it syncs beautifully across my various devices. It’s a keeper! - autor:David Andersen - title:So much better than Apple podcasts!

  • Crashes On Load

    I love this app, but come on guys. I’m constantly crashing the second I open the app and often have to close it and reopen twice before actually hearing an episode. - autor:austinrega - title:Crashes On Load

  • BY FAR the best podcast app I’ve found

    By 5
    Out of all of the podcasts apps I’ve tried, and I’ve tried all of the top-rated ones as well as some l obscure ones, THIS ONE TAKES THE CAKE! I always hesitate with paid subscription apps, but the ease-of-use, intuitiveness, and speedy interface make the $8.99/yr well worth it. - autor:johnnyt.como - title:BY FAR the best podcast app I’ve found

  • Good player

    By 3
    I just switched over from the Apple podcast app and I’m enjoying the new feel of Castro. The only two things that bother me are that I can’t download things before I put them in my queue, and that I can’t set podcasts to show and play episodes in chronological order. I listen to all of my podcasts in chronological order, and with the Apple app I can set the display and play order so that’s easy to do. I would be up to four or five stars if not for those missing features. - autor:SilentQueen - title:Good player

  • Lovely app but lousy support

    By 1
    Castro seems like it was tailor-made for the way I listen to podcasts. So why the low rating? Because my primary paid feed stopped updating over two and a half weeks ago and multiple e-mail messages to support have been met with stony silence. I’ve tried everything and the feed just won’t see any episodes past Nov 13. Since I can’t get new episodes on my main feed I have no choice but to use some other podcast app even though none of them are nearly as good at triage. Castro is now useless to me. - autor:Belden Fox - title:Lovely app but lousy support

  • Truly one of the best podcast apps, with a few caveats

    By 4
    This podcast app is great. Arguably probably one of the best, if not the best. The fact that it organizes podcasts into an inbox so that the user can decided yay or nay on specific episodes is great. I feel like I really have fine-tuned control over my podcasts between that and being able to organize and manipulate the order of my queue on the fly. Now, the areas it could improve. The discover/search section is just not up to par with other podcast apps. If you already know what shows you care to listen to, you're pretty golden. However, if you are new to listen to podcasts or want to find new shows to listen to, this app will not be very helpful. Every modern podcast app has lots of features for discovery of podcasts. Featured sections, top charts, browse by podcast network, etc. Castro only has about 10-15 genres to browse through with like 10-20 podcasts in each. It is just not good in that regard and prevents me from giving it a full 5 stars. - autor:Matthew Paul Smith - title:Truly one of the best podcast apps, with a few caveats
