Don't bother
Has the same bugs as as the Apple podcast app (doesn't sync between devices properly) and is considerably more expensive. Save your money.

A terrible application
I do not recommend this podcast player at all. The system shows podcasts as having been downloaded but when you go to play them it says they are not available, and won't even download them manually. I feel like I wasted my money on this product.

Iphone 6 auto pause?
Podcast keeps pausing every once and a while all by itself. It will pause and then I will have to go hit play again and every 30 seconds or so it will pause again and this will continue until I restart the app

App seems to be degrading
Not only have I lost the search capability, but with the last update my previously downloaded podcasts don't play without stuttering anymore. I am temporarily switching back to Apple's podcast app.

Nickle and dime
You have to pay extra to search for podcasts. I don't know how that is even a thing! It's frustrating to have functionality taken away so they can nickel and dime us with in app purchases. Just shady really. I'll be looking for something else now, I can't bring myself to support business practices like these.

Where's the background refresh/download?!
Guys, come on. This is kind of important.

Long time user....I've jumped ship
I've been a long time user of instacast. I've even paid for a membership. But I've finally grown weary of not being notified of new podcasts. And my devices not syncing properly. Every new version of the app has a lot of features that I can't see myself using. All I want to see in those version notes is "Syncing fixed. Notifications fixed." Developer blames iOS for breaking silent notifications as the reason people aren't getting notifications. But I never kill instacast from multitasking. So that isn't why notifications don't work.

Used to love this...
...then along came the update and higher prices. Bought the "entire suite": iPhone, iPad, Mac versions of the app. Now they are charging $15/month to keep them in sync? Really? I'm done.

Poorly Done Update
I’ve been using Instacast since version 2 or so and it was my favorite podcast client. The latest update has changed all that. The redesign has made some features (i.e. Up Next) difficult to discover and use - I had to go to the developers website to figure out how to use Up Next and even then it was difficult to figure out. Instacast is now off my iPhone now and has been replaced with something more capable. Developers should learn to leave things alone or risk ending up with a Homer-Mobile.
