Castro 3 released

My favorite podcast player has a big 3.0 released today. It has a bunch of new stuff, but three features stand out for me:

  • Redesigned player screen: I really disliked the previous one. After just a few minutes this one feels very natural.
  • Trim Silence: Missed this from Overcast. Sounds great and the counter of time trimmed in the player is perfect.
  • Airplay Control from player screen: I hope this becomes less important on iOS 12, but for now is a great shortcut over the terrible hack of selecting AirPods as the sound output in Control Center.

Castro is free with a $9 per year subscription for advanced features. Totally worth it for my podcast use.
