Kasts is a very strong podcast player. The interface is good although could be tidied up particularly around the top section where there is too much spacing, and poor choice of positioning.
Kasts’ functionality is sufficient although there are a number of areas that warrant an overhaul.
Does Kasts replace Cantata as our recommended podcast player? The answer to that question is not yet. However, this is likely to change over time as Cantata is no longer under active development.
If Kasts adds a few more key features we can see it challenging Cantata for the top spot. While Kasts has the option to automatically download new podcasts, this isn’t a substitute for streaming support, a feature it sadly lacks. That’s something that Cantata offers, and it’s such an important factor in its favour.
