1.1 Coming Soon

We’re hard at work on 1.1 which will bring our most requested feature: continuous play. Whether you’re driving, working, exercising, or just generally like to listen to podcasts one after another without having to manually start a new episode, you’ll be very happy with Castro 1.1.

We’re also working on localising Castro so international users can have a more seamless experience with the app.
