Howdy! ’sodes aims to be a casual, cozy way to listen to the occasional podcast. There are no download queues or tricked-out audio features. **Just tap a show, tap an episode, and listen.**

Casual, don’t-have-to-think-about-it visual design. • Made for folks who want podcast listening to be a casual habit.
No account required. • Everything happens right on your device.
No downloads to manage. • Once you start playing an episode, only the audio portions requested by the system will be downloaded. This audio data is stashed in a directory that doesn’t count against your iPhone’s local storage and which your iPhone manages for you automatically.*
Convenient home screen. • The “home” screen of the app has convenient access to your most favorite shows, in-progress episodes, and a few of the most recent unplayed episodes.
Multiple color themes. • Switch from the Light to the Dark theme with a two finger swipe, like flicking off a light switch. Do it again to switch to the Campfire theme for ultra-low-light goodness (useful for moms ‘n dads up at 3am rocking babies to sleep).
Skip backward/forward buttons work over Bluetooth, too. • You can choose how many seconds are used when skipping, but the defaults are sensible.
Big, tappable buttons. • The player screen has extra large buttons with ample spacing. This should help anyone who has trouble tapping the right button in a hurry (walking, jogging, cooking, etc).
Keep Screen Unlocked • A special feature for commuters: if you keep your phone plugged into a dashboard mount on long road trips, and you don’t have or can’t use Bluetooth controls, try enabling the “Keep Screen Unlocked” option in settings. This keeps your screen unlocked as long ’sodes is open AND it is playing (not paused) AND the device is connected to a charger. Why? Because then you can quickly pause or skip without fumbling to unlock your phone.

*Each iOS app has a “Caches” directory for ephemeral data. The system will dump the contents of this directory automatically if you ever start running out of storage space. Also, ’sodes only keeps the data for a handful of recently-played episodes in that directory, which keeps the chances that this will need to happen very low.
