Pocket Casts 6.1
Less than a month since our HUGE 6.0 update to Pocket Casts, we’re proud to bring you our first feature update. The headline addition is quite impressive:
That’s right, Pocket Casts now supports CarPlay. If you have a compatible stereo you can now browse through your podcasts, filters and downloaded episodes without ever having to touch your phone. You can also access all the playback controls too, skip those pesky boring bits or pause the podcast so the teenager at the drive through window won’t judge your taste in podcasts. If you don’t have a compatible stereo, well you know what you need to do.
There are also iPad enhancements like being able to sort your podcast collection as well as show unread badges in the corner if you’re into that sort of thing. We have of course squashed a lot of small niggling bugs as well, and we thank you for reporting those to us.
You’d think after this it would be time to take the rest of the year off and plan our vacations, but we’re straight on to working on Pocket Casts 6.2, in which we’ll be focussing on iOS 10 and all the great new features it will bring to your phone and more importantly the apps that run on it. So head on over to the app store, grab the update and take it for a spin…sorry, I had to get one pun in there.
