Needed a chrome app for Pocket Casts. Tabs are so last year.
I am NOT, nor is this app, affiliated with Pocket Casts or Shiftjelly in any way. I just wanted a standalone app for Pocket Casts and apparently so do a lot of other people.
Pocket Casts and their logo are copyright Shiftjelly. Check out their app at http://www.shiftyjelly.com/pocketcasts.
Now has simple use of Play/Pause, Next and Previous media keys.
