What happened to the purple version of Castbox? Is it the same app?

Both versions of Castbox are indeed developed by the same company. However, the purple version of Castbox app is a straightforward listening platform with fewer bells and whistles than its orange counterpart. The orange version of Castbox has a more intuitive UI design, upgraded features, and an overall smoother interface with updated social sharing capabilities that maximize engagement.

The orange version is your best bet for staying up to date with the most innovative podcast app on the market. Your subscriptions in the purple version can be synchronized to the new orange one, on the condition that you log into Castbox through the same social login you used to first sign up with Castbox (Facebook or Google).
