Pocket Casts 4.5 adds Chromecast support

53

One of our favorite podcatchers gets even better

As you might have noticed, we're kind of big on podcasts here. And when it comes to podcatchers, Pocket Casts is always among our recommendations. Today, Pocket Casts has hit version 4.5, and with it comes a host of new features.

Perhaps most important is that Pocket Casts now supports Chromecast. Just tap the Chromecast icon to stream to any connected TV. (And if you haven't yet experienced the sultry sounds of Jerry Hildenbrand over a proper home entertainment system, prepare to be amazed.) Album art is displayed on screen and does a great imitation of a screen saver (much like Google Play Music), so you won't have to worry about burn-in.

Pebble app gets updated with more stability fixes

The folks at Pebble have pushed out another bugfix for the Pebble 2.0 application. Along with general stability fixes, the issue with the never-ending loading screen has been addressed. As a user who was experiencing the stuck splash screen issue, I can confirm that it's gone on my phone. Hurrah! While still not as stable as the original version, Pebble 2.0 is starting to shape up. Let's hope the trend continues.

Apps of the Week: Sorcery!, Crazy Taxi, IMSA and more!

Apps of the Week

See the apps that made it onto our phones and tablets this weekend

Saturdays bring a lot of great things, but one of the best (at least for us) is the Apps of the Week column where we get to show off the apps that we're using every day. Each of the writers here at Android Central does their best to write a bit about a single app that's been on their phone or tablet in the last week, giving you the chance to see what we're all using.

The list is usually pretty varied, with a grouping of games, utility apps and a few off-the-wall choices now and then, but that's what you'll find if you look hard enough throughout the entire Play Store. Hit the break to see how this week's picks line up with the rest.
