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.

    Love how this app automates & organizes the podcasts I subscribe to. It applies my preferences in an effortless way so I can listen to what I want & spend less time having to select what I want.

    Excellent podcasting app! I love the inbox and visual queue to make sure I hear the most important episodes. Highly recommend!

    Loved this app when I got it a few months ago. I subscribe to a ton of podcasts and the method they use to manage your backlog is brilliant. But over the past few weeks, I’ve been running into issues with refreshing podcasts in my queue for sorting, streaming over cellular, and saving progress mid podcast. Get it together!

    A great workflow. I didn’t find it totally intuitive initially but once I did I found it indespencible. It is great for dealing with podcasts in which you don’t want to download every episode. I love how you can specify how many episodes to keep for a given podcast. Thanks to the developers!

  • The Best Podcasting App

    Castro has done a fantastic job at managing the amount of features and the user experience. Many apps just lack the features or worst, they try to jam in too much creating bugs and poor interface usability. I can’t say how much I appreciate this app.
  • CarPlay bugs

    I love the app, but it is frustrating to use in in the car with CarPlay. 90% of the time it is just a blank layout with no content. You have to go back to the phone to start a podcast.
  • Censorship?

    An entire piece of ui disappears when I try to play a certain podcast...making it impossible to listen to. That seems extremely odd.
  • Best CarPlay Experience

    As a long time user of Overcast (and Pocket Casts before that) I gave Castro a spin when it showed up as a featured App Store app. The CarPlay experience is wonderful. I like the queue management methodology as well but great CarPlay is the killer feature that convinced me Castro Plus was worth it.
