Zac Hall for 9to5Mac:

Pocket Casts is a cross-platform podcast player with apps on iOS, Android, the web, and even Windows Phone, and today Shifty Jelly released a major update to the iPhone and iPad version. Pocket Casts 6 is out today and includes loads of changes including a refreshed user interface, a dark theme, multitasking features on iPad including Picture-in-Picture and Split View, and much more.

Pocket Casts has been my go-to podcast player for a while now and while it always got the job done, the UI left much to be desired. The new app, built in Swift, brings a much cleaner, modern, more comfortable look to the app. Rows are given greater margins, the app typeface has been switched and, as mentioned, they’ve included a dark mode option, which looks great.
