Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Managing a large collection of podcasts is easy with Instacast. Browse the online directory, import your subscriptions, customize settings for individual podcasts, sort episodes into different playlists and find exactly what you're looking for in just a few clicks. Gone are the days of being overwhelmed by an unorganized library of podcast subscriptions!
Playing episodes is now easier and more intuitive than ever. With only two clicks you can queue an episode for playback, and Instacast's multitude of options for controlling playback ensures that you're always in control of your podcasts whatever you're doing on your computer.
Download and save episodes for offline playback and quickly share them with other devices. With Instacast you have access to your computer's storage to save episodes and, unlike on iOS devices, don't have to keep deleting podcasts to free up space.
Instacast does more than just play podcasts: it also allows you to interact with episodes via show notes and it also has the ability to share episodes to a number of other services.
Automatically synchronize your podcast library between devices with Instacast Cloud – our custom cloud-sync solution.

I used to love Instacast in my iOS devices so I jumped on it for OSX as soon as it was available. The program works ok but has some reliability and implementation issues. It sometimes feels buggy and “heavy”. I guess that the designers need to work on how to translate the iOS app to the big screen. On the plus side, synchronization works quite well. Sync with the iOS app is my number one requirement, so I keep using the app.
There is one big problem with this app: there are NO show notes! I cannot understand how this is ommited from the app since it’s in the iOS app (and has been there for a long, long time). It’s a shame since being able to see show notes and click on the links to get extra material makes so much more sense in an OSX machine than in a small iOS device. Please, add this to the program!!
MUCH better than iTunes podcast, but...
I was tiring of iTunes 11’s absolutely horrible Podcast implementation, so doing some research found this app and I love it as it’s stable, easy to find what I want, but there are two major things I would want to give it five stars:
1) Why can’t we make the video window smaller than 800x600? I like to make my video podcast window nice and small so i can fit it on my desktop while having more important things showing. Having this limit seems useless and just flat out arbitrary
2) Needs AirPlay capability (from here on the Mac app, i see that the iOS app can do AirPlay)
these two items would make this $20 much more worthwhile
Good, but missing features
I haven’t experienced any problems resizing the window in this app, and it’s been really nice compared to iTunes, but there’s one problem that’s driving me insane: the media buttons don’t work. You can’t skip or play/pause the audio with Apple’s media buttons. These work fine with Rdio and other apps, so what’s the problem with this one? There’s no reason I should have to open the app just to navigate through the audio when I can do it with a keyboard shortcut.
