Castro for iMessage

Posted by Padraig on Sep 13, 2016

Today, we’re proud to announce the release of Castro 2.1, which includes an iMessage App for iOS 10, along with numerous other improvements.

To celebrate the launch of iOS 10 and Castro for iMessage, Castro is on sale at $3.99 until September 19th.

The Castro iMessage App makes sharing episodes even more convenient.

  • Easily share recently played episodes with your friends and family
  • When you receive a recommendation from someone else add it to your queue without leaving the Messages app

In Castro, you don’t have to play an episode that you receive immediately, subscribe to the podcast, or wonder where the episode ended up. Instead, just add it to your queue and it’ll be there when you’re ready to listen.

We spent a lot of time iterating through designs during the two year-long development of Castro 2. One of the key decisions we made was to centralize all playback around the queue. This is unique among podcast apps and forms the foundation that allowed us to make an iMessage App that can sensibly queue received episodes.

If you haven’t tried Castro yet, you can save 20% by buying it before September 19th.

If you’re already using Castro, we hope you’ll enjoy this update. If you do, please take a moment to leave a review on the App Store. We want to release updates like this regularly, but every time we do, we lose our rating. We know it’s a pain to keep rating and reviewing, but it really helps other people find the app, which keeps us in business.
