We had a lot of complains over the last couple of days about Up Next in Instacast 5. Up Next has been changed in Instacast 5 to make the app overall easier and less complex for novice users. A common question in Instacast 4 was that users couldn't find out why Instacast was continuing to play seemingly random episodes, that have been added to Up Next a while back and users forgot about it. One thing we did in Instacast 5 was to move the Up Next queue from a secondary view of the player right into the player and got rid of the Up Next list in the main menu, because we thought that a lot of users are not using it anyway. Apparently a lot of users are using it to the point that they complained that the feature was gone altogether, which is not true.
In a coming update, we will however change the behavior of Up Next slightly in order to make the feature much more accessible again.
We hope that these measures will improve the Up Next situation. These changes will be available today in our Testflight beta build. If you are interested in testing, please send us an email to beta(at)vemedio.com.
