Instacast 2.0 For The iPhone Available

This morning a major update to Vemedio’s podcatcher Instacast has gone live on the App Store.

Instacast, a Macgasm favourite (check out our interview with Martin Hering, Instacast’s creator), is probably the single best iOS application to discover, download, organize, and most importantly, enjoy the podcasts you love. The developers have been hard at work and made many changes, not the least of which are a completely revamped user interface and a pro version, available via an in-app-purchase.

The nice people of Vemedio have also lowered the price from $ 2.99 to $ 0.99. The application was a steal before, but this new price is almost shamefully low. If you haven’t downloaded it so far, now’s the best time and don’t forget to subscribe to Macgasm TV once you’ve bought it.
