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. )

Has improved drastically
My only complaint is that syncing is still so-so. Otherwise, it's working great.

Going Backwards
I loved Instacast, but each new release I feel like it gets worse. Audio podcast now seem to inexplicably have videos in them. The interface needs a total overhaul, overly complex for a simple task.

Don't upgrade
Don't bother upgrading, it's a waste of money. You gain nothing of note, and you lose iCloud syncing / backup. Honestly, this feels like one of those last ditch efforts to double dip before leaving the market.

Great App With Just a Couple Annoyances
Overall this is a great app. I just have a couple problems with it. First, I use the same settings for every podcast, but they slightly differ from the default settings. So, I have to manually change the setting for each podcast that I subscribe to. Why can't I just modify the default settings and have them apply to all podcasts? Secondly, the swipe gesture on the table cells are very unreliable. It always takes me multiple attempts to mark a podcast as played by using this gesture. If these are my only gripes, then the app is pretty solid. I would like to see them fixed though.

One big problem
I have been a user of Instacast for more than 2 years, so I happily downloaded their newest version. I have found one issue. When I am listening to a podcast, and I receive a phone call, the podcast pauses for me to answer the phone, but does not resume after the call is completed. Since I listen to most of my podcasts while I am driving and using a hands free system, this is quite a problem. I have seen this issue is previous versions of Instacast and it has been addressed. However, until it is fixed in version 3, I am going to be using my older version of Instacast.
