Still struggling under El Capitan
I just updated to this version, and I am still finding Downcast having a difficult time on El Capitan. I can launch it and play one podcast, but I cannot then listen to another. The application hangs, and I have to ultimately shut down my computer. I really like Downcast for being able to sync via iCloud with my phone. But I can’t use it on my Mac until i see there is a resolution to this resource issue.
App crashes whenever I try to select new episodes to download.
