Castro lets you track lots of podcasts at once without getting overwhelmed. Here’s how it works: 1) New episodes land in the INBOX. Read the descriptions, queue the good ones and archive the rest. 2) The QUEUE is a central playlist for organizing your next few hours of listening. Queued episodes are downloaded automatically. 3) Press Play. Castro plays your queue in order from top to bottom. Reorder or archive queued episodes anytime. 4) In the ARCHIVE you can find the back catalogue of all shows you subscribe to, browse your listening history, and easily access your starred episodes. This flow lets you expand your listening habits without getting overwhelmed. With Castro, subscribing to a podcast doesn’t mean making a commitment to listen to every episode. You don’t have to choose a few shows and miss the rest. OTHER FEATURES * Drag and drop support helps you triage and reorder your queue. * Castro sports an elegant dark mode (requires Castro Plus) and well-thought out sleep timer, offering the best in night time podcast listening. * Our servers constantly scan for new episodes across every podcast, so your phone doesn’t have to, saving battery life and data usage. * Queued episodes are automatically downloaded, so you can focus on deciding what you want to hear and let Castro manage the details. * Beautifully rendered full screen show notes. * Episode notifications include a short summary of the episode to help you decide if it interests you. You can play, queue or archive the episode directly from the notification without opening the app. * CarPlay support. * Watch app to control playback and select another episode from your queue. * Full play history. * Star episodes to easily find your favorite episodes later. CASTRO PLUS Castro Plus is an optional subscription to unlock a range of advanced features. There are quarterly and yearly payment options, and both include a one week trial. + 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. * Sideloading allows import of 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: Skipping & Pre-selection. + Chapter and episode artwork. + Episode Limit lets users specify what number of episodes of each podcast to keep. + Set a start position for episodes of each podcast. + Customize settings per-podcast: Episode Limit, Trim Silence, Enhance Voices, Mono Mix, Skip Intros, Playback Speed. 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:



  • Der Durchbruch

    Von Daniel_H.
    Das neue Castro, auch mit Subscriptions, ist richtig gelungen. Auch Features erscheinen jetzt häufiger. Habe nach langem Hopping zwischen OverCast & PocketCasts den finalen Wechsel gemacht und nutze das neue Castro seit dem Erscheinen. Weiter so SuperTop!
  • Tolle App

    Von jodhpur
    die seit dem Sprung auf Version 3 zu meinem bevorzugten Podcastplayer geworden ist. In der aktuellen Version sind jetzt sogar Funktionen dazugekommen, die ich vorher nicht vermisst habe, die ich aber nach wenigen Tagen der Benutzung nicht mehr missen möchte. Dafür zahle ich gerne.
  • Ätzende Abo Seuche

    Von Oliver Yves
    Früher gut, heute leider nicht mehr.
  • Great podcast app

    Von MathiasSau
    Nice UI, works flawlessly, all features are there, watch integration is good, solid podcast player 👍👍
  • Sehr gute Podcast App

    Von Torben Stephan
    Nachdem ich Castro entdeckt habe, habe ich die Apple Podcast App gelöscht. Diese App ist richtig spitze und intuitiv. Abzüge gibt es für das Abo-Modell, die fehlende iPad-Version (Apple Watch gut), die fehlende deutschsprachige Lokalisierung und die Tatsache, dass es leider keine kuratierte Podcast-Empfehlungen gibt (nur eine Suche).
  • Plus Version sehr aufdringlich

    Von louderc
    Man hat für diese App bereits gezahlt und wird trotzdem immer wieder damit genervt das Pro-Abo zu kaufen. Und dieses umfasst teilweise Features, die relativ basic sind und auch keine Server-Infrastruktur voraussetzen, die regelmäßig bezahlt werden müssen. Das ist etwas, das ich von einer bezahlten App nicht erwarte, und ärgert mich sehr.
  • Nice podcast app

    Von Fabster83
    Finally found a good podcast app.
  • Love the inbox / queue User Experience

    Von Shackenberg
    Allows me to follow more than 100 podcasts without having my phone storage fill up and to always have the episodes i want to hear in a priority order.
  • Almost Perfekt!

    Von iDavid123
    In love with this app! I would give 5 stars if you extended the functionality of the apple watch app, for example the ability to adjust the volume or to archive a specific episode, maybe even the ability to use it without the iPhone!
  • Einer der besten

    Von dr.gonzon
    Tolles Design und sinnvolle Verwaltung von Podcast. Mit subscription stehen jetzt endlich auch Kapitelmarken zur Verfügung. 🕺
