The Castro Podcast app for iOS has been updated with a new Discovery Section, Live Search, and faster subscribing.

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!

What's New In This Version:
NEW STUFF
● Discovery Section: Includes featured podcasts on category charts and our own curated recommendations feed. Check back each week to find new curated collections!
● Live Search: Searching for podcasts happens live as you type and should be much faster and more accurate than before.
● Faster Subscribing: You can now subscribe directly from search results without tapping in to the podcast first.

CHANGES
● The notification dot on the inbox now behaves more like social media apps — instead of being active until you empty your inbox, it’s only visible when there are new things added that you haven’t seen yet.
● Email Support option in settings is easier to find.
● Better support for universal links — Castro no longer sends them to Safari View Controller.
● Adds a setting to persist last user panel on now playing screen
● Inbox renamed to "New”. The Archive tab is now “Library”. Instead of “Archiving" episodes from inbox and queue you “Clear" them.
● Adjusted Enhance Voices to prevent clipping.

FIXES
● Fixes issues where Castro could interrupt Siri while listening over AirPods.
● Improvements to memory management in the Watch App which will hopefully eliminate some crashes there.
● Fixes issue where Castro could crash when restoring backups, or toggling downloads on / off.
● Email links now work properly in show notes.
● Fixes issue where podcast artwork could load very slowly in search results.
● Failed downloads will now automatically retry 3 times instead of requiring the user to manually tap download.

You can download Castro Podcast Player from the App Store for free.
