Castaway Podcast Player has just been released in the App Store! Castaway Podcast Player brings a fresh approach to listening to podcasts. Instead of subscribing to podcasts, Castaway looks to relieve some of the “queue-zero stress” by letting you listen at leisure. You’ll be able to search for and stream shows on demand instead of having them download and wait for you. Castaway is a nice new addition to the podcast app lineup.
