Version 5.1

Dark Mode - It’s FINALLY here. You’re welcome…

We’ve also made some changes we think you’ll like slash love:
1. Love seeing your podcasts in list view, but hate how the app never remembers it. Those days are a distant memory.
2. Hate having to tap on the Shows tab *every* time the app restarts, because all you want to do is see your latest podcast episodes? Same…
3. We’ve updated our UI to better message what the app can do when you’re offline. Also, we got rid of the weird animals/monsters art work. They were weird, right??

We’ll be slowly rolling out the features we just mentioned, so keep an eye out for them.
