Pure garbage.
This app deletes most of your podcasts moments after you download them. It used to work.

Sync Issues
Subscriptions disappeared with latest update and sync broke as well. Troubleshooting recommendations for Instacast Cloud did not remedy the situation. This app is always on the verge of being the premier podcatcher but something, usually sync issues, always holds it back. Sad. Will update this review if the sync issues ever get worked out.

This is a great app and was a worthwhile Podcast player that I switched to a while back when I got dick of Apple's Podcast app "upgrade". This app worked great between multiple devices, until I upgraded to v4, which seems to have broke the syncing abilities...one of the issues the change log stated it would fix. Once they get this major issue resolved (hopefully soon, before I jump ship and find one that meets my needs), then I would gladly give them a five-star rating.

v3 was great, all of the v4 versions just completely hose Cloud Sync. Stay away.

Great App Now Even Better
The iOS 7 update made everything better. The fluidity, the management, the updating mechanism (not the iOS 7 API, but the visual implementation), and especially especially the Now Playing view are all better than ever, and when I look at other podcast apps I see on the App Store I'm surprised at how much better Instacast is. Specifically, the fact that Now-Playing controls are custom-colored by album art makes me very very happy. There's about 5% of time or less that the chosen color doesn't feel gut-level perfect, but even that 5% works aesthetically. For example, This American Life's album art is white background, blue text, red emphasis text, and the Instacast controls are sort of a dark purple instead of the blue or red. Still--it's a hue-matched purple, which doesn't look off. I wouldn't be surprised if this improved soon. In previous versions of this review, this is where I complained about the "Up Next" playlist. Now I've figured it out and I love it. Hold-tap on an episode and it can be added to the list. This is fast and easy. Now I don't have the wrong podcast play just because it happened to come out chronologically in between other episodes. I've upped my rating accordingly, from 4 to 5 stars. My bad.

I’m not sure what happened with this release, but the update has made syncing between devices much worse than it has ever been. Nothing stays sync’d anymore and the subscriptions on my iPad are completely gone.
