Instacast 1.0.2

Send Article to a Friend

Vemedio has released Instacast 1.0.2 with an AirPlay adjustment for the forthcoming OS X 10.9 Mavericks. Now when you stream audio from the podcasting app, AirPlay doesn’t need to switch the system audio output device (under Mavericks Beta 3 or higher). The update also adds support for viewing podcast feeds, episode images, and chapters using Quick Look, as well as support for chapter links and images in MP3 ID3v2 tags. It also ensures the system won’t go to sleep during download, adds the capability to pause playback before system sleep, fixes localization issues and crashes, and improves play button behavior. ($19.99 new, free update, 5.7 MB, release notes)
