Continuing to Improve
Instacast is back to the point that I'm comfortable recommending it again. The past couple of releases have stabilized things, and some features missing from 3.0 are back. Sync is working exactly as it should. There are still a couple of UI quirks — things that I'd like to see refined (show notes access, for example). I finally deleted the previous version from my device, and I'm not regretting it.

Design Fail
This new “tap podcast to play” behavior, which replaced “tap to show info” in Instacast 3 is driving me nuts. I constantly start playback unintentionally. Oh yeah, there's an “i” button for show notes now - which is too small, not to mention it's unavailable during download, because the space is occupied by the progress bar. If it an't broke - don't fix it! I guess the app author has never heard this saying before.

Best Podcast App Available
When Instacast 3 originally launched it was missing a couple features that Instacast 2 users expected to find. Through a couple small updates Vemedio has put everything back in. With these features added back into Instacast it is extremely easy to recommend. It's new coat of paint is slick, and updates from 2 to 3 make it well worth the upgrade. Checking for new podcasts seems to take about a third of the time it used to, and when you have a ton of subscriptions, that is a huge plus. Vemedio's take on cloud syncing is also great. It has worked flawlessly for me, podcasts and places are just there on both of my devices, and that is exactly how it should be.

Syncing Doesn't Work
I like and support instacast generally, but this release is still too buggy and provides no improvements on earlier versions. Syncing amongst devices does not work, in fact much worse than before, and clearing downloads has become more difficult. I have no doubt the kinks and bugs will be fixed, but until then, it has become less usable.

Do not upgrade
I use this app must of the day and am happy to support the developer by paying for an upgrade. Unfortunately this is not an upgrade. The previous version is a far better app.
