Popular podcast app Pocket Casts comes to Windows Phone, but at a steep price


Shifty Jelly has just brought their cross platform podcasting app to Windows Phone.

The full featured app, which has more than 100,000 downloads on Android, includes such items as variable speed playback and customizable skip times.


The full list of features include:image

  • CROSS PLATFORM SYNCING: Sync your subscriptions, playback and filters between Windows phones, Android and iOS, as well as Pocket Casts Web.
  • AUTO DOWNLOAD: Customise which podcasts the app will download in the background. No need to even open the app!
  • UP NEXT: Listen to episodes back to back, no fumbling with your phone during your commute.
  • VARIABLE SPEED: Play audio all the way from 0.5x to 2.0x.
  • FILTERS: Want a list of every unplayed episode? Right here. How about sorting your episodes by custom categories? Done.
  • DESIGN: We’ve paid close attention to the Windows Phone design guidelines and where the platform is heading with Windows 10.  As a result Pocket Casts feels right at home on your phone.
  • CONTROL: Customise the start time of your episodes to skip repetitive intros, and adjust skip intervals to suit your needs.
  • REFRESH: Instantly refresh all your podcasts before other apps even have a chance to do 1! Our servers monitor your podcasts, so your phone doesn’t have to.
  • DISCOVER: Choose from over 200,000 podcasts. Find great new content with curated featured, currently trending and most popular podcast lists.
  • SUPPORT: Provided via email, Twitter and Facebook. Heck we occasionally even log in to Reddit to say hello. Pocket Casts also features an in-app User Guide for those that prefer a little hand-holding.

Unfortunately the app is rather pricy as $3.99 and does not have a free trial.  It does however have 4.5 stars in the Android store, suggesting it will likely be a good investment.
