Instacast Support – Vemedio

Instacast Support – Vemedio:

In Instacast 3 we made a lot of internal changes to the very foundation of the app that will allow us to make a Mac version that will be totally compatible with Instacast 3. This is planned for spring next year. Stay tuned.

I’ve gone back to Apples Podcast app for the time being, so I can sync to my home Mac and play through my house but this has me excited!

New iOS App From Apple: Podcasts:

good for playback (including syncing your location in an episode between devices), good for discovery, good for automatically downloading new episodes

(Via Daring Fireball)

I’ve only had an initial look. From what I can see these are great features but, I can’t see how to add a podcast manually (need my CastRoller feeds) or import subscriptions. My guess is I can do this by syncing but that is most defiantly not post PC!

Not Good News

Deallocated Objects – The Case of Missing Podcasts in iOS 6:

An Apple-hosted Podcasts service could help to further blur the lines between professional and independent content providers, giving this type of content the same “bump” that indie developers got with App Store

(Via Marco.org)

IMO this would kill proper independent podcasts. Not actually but, we already fight with both new producers and non geek listeners to get them to realize that podcasting does not equal iTunes. My fear is Apple will make such a compelling platform true podcasts would be relegated to their own sort of dark net.
