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.

Not worth upgrade.
If you have v2, dont bother upgrading. There is hadly enough new features to justify paying full price again.

A Hot Mess
The iPad version is better than version 2. The interface is a major improvement there. On the iPhone version, however, the position scrubber is at the bottom. To scrub at half speed or do fine scrubbing, you have to slide down on the scrubber before moving left or right... But there's no room, because the scrubber is already at the bottom! How did the developer not see this? Was there any beta? Did anyone use this before release? I don't mind paid upgrades—even support them for great work to continue—but this one's a joke. It's a shame this app is so pretty. Compared to Downcast, it's a Victoria's Secret model next to Meg Griffin... But design is also how it works. If you need a podcatcher, go with ugly Downcast. Instacast is a mess.

Not working. Instacast 2 works better
I pay, onemoretime for this app. I use it everyday on iPhone. I dont need a fancy sync service, I just use on one device. I kept version 2 on my iPhone, lucky me, cause is the only one reliable. Works fine, update all my feeds, more than 120, and yes I have a life, I listen podcast 2 or 3 hours a day minimum. With Instacast 3, my iphone 5 freezes, not refresh all my feeds, I reduce the list to 97, and still having same problems. Feeds are not refreshed. Podcasters tweet about new episodes I cant see if I refresh a list of unplayed, or all the subscriptions. To see the new episodes I have to refresh every single feed. Anyone having a poor management of downloads in instacast 3? Downloads take forever... Im sure the developer is working hard right now but the app is just not working, as instacast 2 on the first releases. Im not recomending this app right now. Full of bugs and not working at all.
