** This is an audio podcast player, no video supported (you can still listen to the audio tracks) **

What's new in version 1.3
- Sharing all the things! You can now share links to your podcast episodes, open the show notes in Safari and even send it to Instapaper. We're working on improving and adding more options too.
- Improved handling of high number of podcasts.
- Fixed a bug that would block the app when marking multiple episodes as played/unplayed.

- Sneaked in a new setting: disable auto-refresh of feeds on launch. Although it will only try to refresh all feeds on WiFi, some people just might prefer it turned off.
Our verdict: Ok
  • + Aural - Podcast Player is an ok, 3.5-star app.
