BringCast 3.8.0 Is Available!

Hi everyone,

It’s been a long time since our last post. We’ve been hard at work and we’re back with some great news! BringCast 3.8.0 is now available in the Windows Phone Store!! This is a huge release, bringing lots of great features.

For starters, it’s our first release of BringCast for Windows Phone 8. You’ll notice a beautiful, fast and fluid UI that makes use of every pixel on your device. The app starts up faster, too! We’ve expanded the podcast database, and added many highly-requested features, like customizable seek intervals and automatic clean-up of episode files that are no longer needed.

One new feature we’re super proud of is the ability to use the lock screen / Bluetooth / headphone controls to skip within episodes. When this is enabled, it means you can easily skip through sections of a podcast using your headphone controls, or the Bluetooth controls in your car!

We’ve refined the inbox workflow, too, to make it simpler to use. Now, if you want to listen to every episode of a particular podcast, just flick a switch and new episodes will be added to your player, skipping the inbox completely. For those podcasts where you like to pick and choose what episodes you play, the inbox has been cleaned up to make it super easy to triage what you want and what you don’t.

BringCast 3.8.0 is also the first release to offer integration with other apps. Car Dash (formally known as Car Starter) integrates with us and can start podcast playback in BringCast directly! We also have a completely customizable user interface theme, so you can change the color of the app to suit your mood.

We’re super proud of this release, and hope you love it as much as we’ve enjoyed building it. Screenshots, a video and a full change log are shown below.

There’s so much more BringCast goodness coming in 2014. We can’t wait to share it with you! Follow us on Twitter – @bringcast.
