Indie developer Bluck Apps acquires podcast app Castro

Bluck Apps Takes over Castro Podcast App: What to Expect from the New Ownership

The popular podcast app, Castro, has officially been acquired by the indie developer studio, Bluck Apps. After months of uncertainty regarding the future of Castro, the company has reassured its users that it is here to stay under new ownership.

Dustin Bluck, the mind behind the Android podcast app Aurelian, is now at the helm of Castro. In a recent blog post, Bluck promised users that there would be no drastic changes, ensuring that the beloved features of Castro would remain intact. He also hinted at potential new features and improvements to enhance the user experience.

While the ownership has changed, the subscription price for Castro will remain the same, at least for the time being. However, users are encouraged to subscribe to Castro Plus to avoid any potential price hikes in the future.

As part of the acquisition, Aurelian will be integrated into the Castro ecosystem, utilizing its backend for search and other functions. Both apps will exist as separate entities but may eventually merge to provide a seamless experience for users.

Bluck has acknowledged the challenges ahead, especially in addressing the concerns of passionate Castro users. However, he is determined to uphold the app’s legacy and continue serving the dedicated podcast community.

Overall, the future looks bright for Castro under the new ownership of Bluck Apps, with a renewed commitment to open podcasting and ensuring the app’s fans are kept happy.
