Castro podcast player seems abandoned? What have people moved to?
Sander in Status |
In 2005, Sander started his professional career in the education sector building content management systems and systems automation. At his last job, he worked at one of the leading media organisations in the UK where he helped build and support a WordPress based publishing platform for regional newspapers and magazines. He worked on the first iteration of the core sitemaps feature of WordPress 5.5.
@sander I migrated from Castro to Overcast a couple of months ago. I simply could not stand some of the bugs in Castro that I bumped into on a daily basis. Especially with regards to airplay and AirPods connectivity.
Overcast is really stable and I’ve managed to create a Castro-ish workflow. But unfortunately it’s really not quite up to par with the Castro way of life™. Castro really is one of a kind when it comes to handling a lot of podcast subscriptions.
I really wish Castro springs back to life in some form or another. It’s, by far, one of my most used (and cherished) apps.
@sander it works so I have no reason to switch. I don’t experience the bugs that @kottkrig describes but we might use it differently. My major issue is the lack of syncing.
@jemostrom yeah it works but developers are not updating their site, the app, not social media so I’m concerned if it will get bug fixes.
@sander 🤷🏻♂️ it works now, if it doesn’t in the future then I’ll switch, if it continues to work then I continue to use it.
@sander I’m a long tíme Pocket Cast user and believe Matt will give it love now that Automattic owns it.
@topgold @sander 2nd vote for Pocket Casts. Use it daily when I’m walking the dog
@keithpound I share a PC account with a creative team. We tag specific time points and use the compiled link list as talking points during coffee chats.
@keithpound The only snag I’ve encountered with Pocket Casts occurs when it’s sometimes unable to access private audio feeds.
