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! We hope you enjoy using Cosmicast! - Beautiful and clean interface - Light mode, dark mode, and true black dark mode - Column grid sizing - Discover new podcasts by genre or region - Search for or paste podcast URLs to add them - Download episodes for offline playback - No account required - Supercharged podcast player, accessible from any screen with a swipe up gesture using two fingers - Long-hold the skip duration buttons to change the durations - Long-hold the play/pause button to change the playback speed - Tap the podcast artwork in the player for more options - Sleep Timer - Volume Boost - View related content by the same author - Pick your audio source - Drag and Drop podcast rearranging - 3D Touch Peek and Pop - 3D Touch Quick Actions - iMessage Stickers - Siri Shortcuts - Notifications for downloads - Import and export podcasts as an OPML file We’re constantly evolving and crafting it to create the perfect podcast player for you.

  • Looks good, but major functionality issues

    Doesn’t work
  • Great podcast app

    By gregraubertas
    Your podcast app is great!! Super easy to use. Would you ever consider adding a volume boost, a way to increase the speed of speech and remove the dead air during the conversation? Then your app would be perfect!! 😀 Thanks for all your hard work on the app.
  • I WANT to use this player, please debug it

    Step 1: import OPML (from PodCruncher, an ugly, but highly reliable app) Step 2: scroll down Crashes every time. I discovered a duplicate in the backup, so I removed it, but still crashes. I know devs don’t want bug reports in these reviews, but what am I to do? I can’t use the app without manually adding every one of dozens I’m subscribed to. Sorry.

    This is the best podcast app I ever used, solved at least two problems Easy to discover, and fast update. Unlike the Apple podcast app, Without know, the NAME of channel still can look up from category. The apple now keynotes on 2019, I can't find on apple podcast app yet, but already can download from this app!!! You deserve a five star rate!
  • Interface is good

    By Bibi Jean
    Thought I found the podcast app of my dream. Then I played once episode then realized it Doesn’t have any indicators that tells you when you’ve already listen to a show. 🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️
  • Display issue on XR

    The search bar on screen right top button can not Trigger
  • Embarrassing

    By DanielShaneD
    Avoid. This developer is notorious for abandoning projects. This is very beautiful in design. That’s it. In practice there are a ton of decisions that don’t make sense. The settings icon is persistent on every screen. No dynamic settings for podcasts. Every time I’ve opened the app the playlist begins to redownload all episodes. The 1.x - 2x speed changes aren’t very smart. It just chops the audio.
  • Gorgeous design however.....

    By ohtinaxo
    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

    By Raffadiely
    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.
  • Very disappointed!!!

    By trishk3064
    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.
