Description

Cosmicast is a beautiful podcast player built with iOS design guidelines in mind. It’s as useful as it is gorgeous. With a customizable grid layout and three sets of themes to choose from, it’s most definitely a podcast player for you. There are no complicated user accounts or settings to configure. You can pick it up and get started immediately. This is made even faster with OPML podcast importing, and a handy discover section that’s categorized effectively in a minimal manner to show you only what you want to see. The stunning podcast player makes listening to your favorite podcasts a joy, and tapping the large controls give you a wonderful haptic response. Long-holding certain buttons presents further options to enhance your experience and fine-tune aspects of the app. The player is always accessible from any page via a swipe up gesture with two fingers. Awesome. We’ve also thrown in some cool things like Drag and Drop podcast rearranging, 3D Touch support, iMessage Stickers, and Siri Shortcuts!

  • Gorgeous design however.....

    I really love the design of this app, especially the option to have it in dark mode. However, there has been a couple of issues that prevented me from keeping it. When I close the app, it doesn’t allowed me the offer to returned to my podcast at its rightful place. Rather, I have to search for the podcast again and click that episode again.
  • Switching back to Apple Podcasts

    This app does not work as well as it looks. That said, it definitely looks very nice. However, it is plagued by bugs and has gone weeks with no word from the developer (see Developer Website, which links to Twitter account). For example, it often loses playing position (or even which episode is being played) if the app is closed. The download queuing doesn't seem to actually do much, because the app says it's "Fetching episode" even if I've told it to download. I really want to use this app, but for now I'm moving back to the stock app. Maybe an update will come and I'll be able to switch back.
  • Downloads Dont Work

    App is aesthetically appealing, but what is the point of having an option to download an episode to listen offline if, once offline and attempting to listen to said episode, the app sits and says "fetching episode" and never plays it? Uninstalling and going back to the Apple Podcasts app because the core functionality of the app is ACTUALLY THERE.
  • Very disappointed!!!

    I don’t normally pay for apps but since I like podcasts a lot I thought I’d give it a try. And boy what a disappointment it doesn’t play most of the time. Why would you guys sell such headaches as this. Please you can do all of us better than this.

    The UI looks great and I enjoy dark mode feature but it was lacking basic features when it came to downloading episodes. I would love to see more flexibility when creating playlists. I was having issues with playback on a downloaded episode. The app looks nice but it needs more powerful features, I hope see see improvements in the future.
  • A lot of work needed

    The interface is it’s very visually appealing But the app lack a lot of functionality for instance if you delete the app and reinstall it you don’t have the option To restore your subscriptions Plus a lot of functionalities that other podcast players have The option to turn on or off trim silence skip forward or volume boost and this app has no indication that it has them plus the only setting you have is change the theme so you developers need to rethink the way this app functions until then I’ll try it but now it’s useless the only thing that I can say about it is that the interface is great but it needs alot of work 😊
  • Not saving my place in podcasts

    By Trey T3
    Every time I open up a podcast I was listening to it starts over from the very beginning and does not seem to be saved in my place. Is there something I need to do to make this happen? I like the look of the app. Very slick.
  • Looks fantastic but unusable

    App crashes way to often when scrolling thru my subscribed podcast. Seems to be missing auto downloading and queuing.
  • Not ready for prime time

    Lacking episode sorting and art. Super pretty.
  • Lovely, with a bit of criticism

    This is one of the very nicest looking podcast apps on iPhone that I think exists. Elegant, and simple I really like the way it looks. It even imports my podcasts from a ompl file. Yours be amazed how many podcast app creators seem to think you should just import all your dozens of podcasts one by one, UGH. The only real problem I’ve seen is on my iPhone SE very often when I try to scroll through my podcasts, the app crashes. And then has to be restarted again. Also it needs to have new episode notifications too. It needs the name of the podcast shown alongside the podcast art, otherwise you don’t know what it is until you click on it. It needs to handle multiple downloads better. Otherwise, a great start!
