@ChrisHannah great review. I am happy with Castro, love the triage. As I only listen to podcasts on my phone it suits me perfectly.

@johnjohnston thanks! I wish I was the same, Castro is a great app.

@ChrisHannah sums it up nicely! I’ve found Castro to be a great “personal trainer” to change the way I was using podcasts. Very helpful! Makes that feeling of “keep every episode just in case” slowly dissipate.

@ChrisHannah I have long been a Pocketcasts user, as I had some issues with Overcast in years past. But this year I’ve found myself using Castro more and more. I love how it puts the queue at the center of the listening experience. It’s a terrific app.

@ChrisHannah Just downloaded Castro because of your review! I was still using Apple Podcasts until now. 😳 This is just what I needed for those podcasts where I don’t want to listen to every episode.

@Burk I totally agree! It’s my favourite part of Castro.

@grayareas I haven’t tried Pocketcasts yet, I may have to give it a go at some point!

@ChrisHannah Give it a try! I think Pocket Casts is an excellent app. And I like that it’s also available for Android — I’ve recommended it to a lot of my non-iOS friends with good results. 🎧

I use Castro too for a small list of my absolute favorite pods because its queue functionality is superior, and I love that when traveling. And I also love and use Castro’s awesome side-loading audio functionality. 🎧
