It took a while but today Pocket Casts was updated to version 6.0 on iOS.
It long has been my favorite podcast client, but recently I used overcast for the lack of Smart Speed in Pocket Casts on iOS. The latest update added this functionality alongside an UI overhaul, including a beautiful dark theme.
Also the iOS got statistics as it already had on Android. I’m a huge fan of things like this. I know now that I have listened 9 days and 10 hours of podcasts since January.
