What's New in Pocket Casts 7.8

  1. After every major release, we do lots of big and small updates that increase the version number. It's all fun and games when you're at 7.1 and 7.2, but as you get to 7.8 you just know you're going to have to either do the weird 7.10 thing, or break your convention and go for 7.9.9.9.9.9.1 to avoid going to 8. This release gets us one closer to that, and also fixes a whole bunch of weird and wonderful bugs. Release numbers are just plain weird, let's be honest.
  2. Oh and a shout out to our BMW owning friends. I'm going to be kind to you all and make 0 jokes about your car choice, except maybe by taking a slight dig at you with our new setting:
  3. General -> Legacy Bluetooth Support is something you'll want to turn on if you're having issues with the app pausing in your car. It's ok, "legacy" sounds like "classy" so same, same right?
