Last covered here, back in March 2017, the podcatcher Onecast UWP has won lots of fans with its ultra-simple 'set it and forget it' interface. And it's back, with another big update, v1.7, with a full changelof listed below. There's even (shock, horror, given the author's stated intentions for the app!) a Settings page now, though the author does emphasise that 99% of people never need to go near it...
The usual UI (sans adverts, here!), with a few likely podcast contenders all loaded up; (right) tapping on 'Daniel Lam', i.e. on the dev's name, pops up the proto-menu and on this is an even more 'proto' Settings collection. The defaults will be fine for almost everyone though.
You can now long press on a podcast and 'Pin (it) to Start' - the podcast shows up with album art next to, and independent of, the existing Onecast tile, which shows whatever else is playing and/or new (depending on your Setting).
Just Onecast UWP in action, playing that great podcast(!) while still downloading it in the background, always a neat trick; (right) adding podcasts is as easy as searching for them and the catalogue is still bang up to date.
The 'Enables notifications' setting, per-podcast, is now 'Mark as Favorite' and you get notified about new shows marked as such.
The UI's other two top controls are worth mentioning again - tapping the app's name lets you toggle through three likely sets of behaviour - full auto is shown above left, 'Auto-Caching Enabled'; (right) tapping the heart gives you a way to support the developer, remove ads and enable cloud syncing of podcasts and their status (i.e. between devices on which Onecast is installed).
