Long time Pocketcast user now looking to abandon it because of the truly awful update. Features such as "play all from here" are gone. Menus are confusing. Scrub controls are now missing from some screens. Confusing dual method of marking "played" and "archive." It's a shame, but this program is now a mess. See More
You can set a 'start from' position for a podcast to skip a set number of seconds from the beginning of an episode. Great for when you don't want to listen to an intro you've heard a couple of dozen times before. Additionally, you can also change the playback speed, to slow down fast talkers or speed up slow talkers. See More
Pocket Casts has one of the most colorful, pleasant to use interfaces. For example, the app takes the most prominent color from the album art and colorizes the rest of the playback interface based on that color. This allows the interface to stay vibrant and slightly different for each podcast. Or the way it displays featured podcasts in a colorful mosaic made from album art, makes the whole experience of using the app pleasant. See More
Pocket Casts has a feature called Episode Filter, that allows for automatically created playlists based on settings such as player states (unplayed, playing, played), status (downloaded, downloading, not downloaded), episode types (audio, video) and of course podcasts themselves. You can also customize the appearance of the playlist with a color and an icon to help it stand out easier. See More
Shitty interface; pushes pods at you and makes it kinda difficult to have your own list. See More
For listening to talk shows, Smart Speed allows you to skip silences and pauses. Voice Boost is very helpful when the speakers vary from really quiet to really loud - it balances the whole thing out. And you enable them during playback, so neither will mess up music podcasts. See More
