I’ve used Pocket Casts as my preferred podcast app for… I dunno a long time I don’t really remember using anything else. I like it.
Automattic is structured a bit like a holding company. I like to think of us as like Berkshire Hathaway with a common digital platform, is definitely what we aspire to.
Automattic is all about open source, so it was cool to see Pocket Casts go open source. Took them just over a year, which feels about right to me. No small job to ready to a codebase for untold public eyeballs.
I kinda wanna open an issue. I use Pocket Casts with CarPlay every day of my life. Once in a while, I hear a little hiccup of sound, where after about one minute of listening it’ll rewind like 2 seconds. I know that if I hear this, the app will crash within another minute or so. I need to relaunch it and then scrub to where I was because it will have forgotten.
But… that’s a crappy bug report. I don’t know how to tell them to reproduce it. I don’t have logs. I don’t know anything really except that vague description. I’ll probably just do nothing. There are loads of CarPlay related tickets already so maybe it’ll get fixed as those get mopped up.
