Almost perfect...
but what the heck is so difficult about podcast artwork? The latest update claims to have fixed image caching, but it seems worse than ever. Artwork is not displayed when in airplane mode, and even when data is active it sometimes "loses" artwork and displays none. I love everything else about this app, but this is so frustrating.

Great interface, easy to use
This is a great app for podcasts and is probably my favorite that I've tried out...the ONE thing I sometimes wish it did better was looking for and downloading my podcasts without me refreshing it in app. Otherwise, it's great!

A decent app but needs some refinements
I paid the premium price and switched to Instacast after being frustrated with how broken Podcaster was. It's mostly better but there is some seriously bad UI/UX happening. First, I hate that the 'Cancel All' button is where most 'Back' buttons are. It goes against all the training my muscle memory has with the iOS interface. Second, if you have a large subscription list, expect many crashes when the app is displaying that UIListView. Finally, you cannot make playlists based on podcast feeds—instead it's based on specific episodes which makes that functionality essentially useless.

I like how It works
I like how this functions push notification of available podcast etc 10 gig's of Cloud storage. I have no complains $4.99 is expensive as App go but It beats the Apple App. I have not noticed any bugs. I have an iPod Touch 4G 64gig. The only regret I have is a week or so after I loaded this app Apple fixed their podcast app I could have saved 5 bucks.

Still no gesture commands
A whole lot of bugs and even something for that silly Pebble watch but NO gesture controls. Sad, just sad.

The Best Choice
This is my go-to podcast app for iOS, it does everything i need/expect, and it's great that its a universal app now. That said, I'm not sure why I updated from the previous version. I don't see much of an improvement over v2. If you already own v2 the only reason to upgrade is to support the developer. (Who deserves it. )
