Vemedio has released version 1.2 of Instacast for Mac with a new architecture for synchronizing podcasts between your Mac and iOS devices. By sending smaller bits of data, this new scheme ensures that all your devices are synced with the same state while also saving on network traffic, storage requirements, mobile data charges, and battery power. You’ll need to update to version 4.5 of Instacast for iOS to continue syncing your podcast subscriptions to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. ($19.99 new from Vemedio and the Mac App Store, free update, 7.0 MB, release notes, 10.8+)
Two Shortcuts for App Exposé
If you want to see all the windows for a particular app via App Exposé, there are two hidden shortcuts. For either, start by pressing Command-Tab to bring up the app switcher. Then, while still holding down the Command key, press either the 1 key or the up arrow. That puts you into App Expose mode, with all of an app's windows showing, and recent documents in a row across the bottom of the screen. Let up on the Command key, and then you can press Tab to cycle through all the running apps.
