The developers of the superb Pocket Casts app have been working on a huge update for iOS. The android version has been updated ages ago and includes many features not found on the iOS version.
In a recent blog post, Shifty Jelly the developers explained what has happened with Pocket Casts for iOS and why it has been delayed by several months.
Fast forward to September and things seemed to be tracking well. Both Pocket Weather and Pocket Casts were cruising along, and we felt fairly confident in our estimates. So we did what any tech company does in this case, we published a blog post. In it we (foolishly, in hindsight) said we’d ship both Pocket Casts and Pocket Weather before 2015 was done. There was a real buzz at Shifty Jelly, this was going to be an awesome set of releases!
After the holiday period, we regrouped in January. Jeff would spend as much time as he could give us working on version 5.2, which added a dedicated full screen iPad interface, and I went back to work on Pocket Casts.
I’m working on it full time now, 5 days a week. When will it be out? When it’s ready. I’m sorry. It is however being worked on today, and tomorrow, and every day after that until it’s ready. It’s our core focus, our singular mission. So if you’ll excuse me, I need to get back to coding.
So basically the app is being worked on full time and will be ready when its ready. As they say, better late than never. For the full transcript hit the source link below.
