iOS Pick: Pocket Casts

Megan Morrone's app cap on iOS Today 314 is Pocket Casts by ShiftyJelly. This is a podcast app with great design and powerful playback tools. It supports all of the newest iOS 10 features on the iPad, including Slide Over, Split View multitasking, and Picture in Picture. It also supports CarPlay, Apple Watch, Airplay, and even Chromecast.

Pocket Casts automatically will build a playback queue from your favorite shows. There's also powerful playback tools, like a silence trimmer, variable speeds, volume boost, and more. Of course, Pocket Casts can play both audio and video podcasts, and it offers a toggle to quickly switch between video and audio.

Since your podcasts are stored in the cloud with Pocket Casts, it will sync across all of your devices. It will notify you when new episodes as they arrive, and it can automatically download them for offline playback.
