Send Article to a Friend

Jamawkinaw Enterprises has released version 1.0.10 of its Downcast podcatcher app with new options for sorting local episodes by time remaining and file size. It also adds a 1.25x playback speed option and an episode count to the Local and Available episode lists. The release also fixes a bug that prevented episode duration from displaying, an issue that prevented sharing via email, a problem that caused authentication failures for password-protected podcasts (which may require you to re-enter your credentials), and a couple of bugs associated with playback speed settings. As of this writing, the Mac App Store had not updated Downcast to version 1.0.10. ($9.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 6.4 MB, release notes)
