New Features:

• Added Continuous Playback Modes

  • Append Mode: An initial playlist is generated and suggested episodes are appeneded to the end of the Continuous Playback playlist. Pressing the refresh button will return the playlist to its original order.
  • Shuffle Mode: Episodes that would normally display in Continuous Playback are shuffled for a randomized playlist and new episodes are appended to the list. Pressing the refresh button will generate a new randomized list.
  • Legacy Mode: The classic sorting style. Episodes are sorted in a standard fashion, and when sorting by highest priority, episodes will always retain their position in the playlist based on their priority.

• Return to Queue

  • You can now automatically have an episode return to the top of the Up Next playlist when it is interrupted and has not yet finished playing.
  • Added a button to enable this feature in the Settings > Playback preferences
  • Added a button to the current playing episode cell to stop playback and return the episode to the top of Up Next

• Background Updates

  • The app now fully supports background tasks to perform feed updates while not using the app.


  • Added new refresh button to Continuous Playback list
  • Added append mode selection to Continuous Playback settings
  • Added new "rating request" alerts that will gently ask users to write a review. Users will be prompted for a review after 3 app launches and asked again every 2 weeks if they choose not to.
  • Improved logic around updating subscribed podcast feeds
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when the audio player is interrupted by another audio source
  • Fixed issue with the mini player queue count circle not looking very circle-like
  • Fixed an issue where the audio player could end episodes early if it received a contentLength that was smaller than the actual audio file
