Castro podcast app adds Enhanced Audio

castro24

Supertop’s excellent app Castro just got an update that adds a great new feature: Enhanced Audio.

This is a feature that’s similar to the Voice Boost feature in other apps1—it dynamically compresses the audio, which is a fancy audio term for making the volume of your podcast more consistently loud. This is helpful in noisy environments such as cars, as well as with podcasts that are of less consistent audio quality.

The Enhanced Audio feature is now a prominent button on Castro’s player controls screen, and the existing Continuous Play feature is also now available from that same screen (rather than being hidden away in the settings section).


  1. The feature apparently originated in the RSSRadio app back in April 2013. ↩
