We're happy to announce that Instacast for Mac 2.0 is available to download today. Instacast 2 has been updated to work together with OS X 10.10 Yosemite, incorporating the new visual style of OS X. We redesigned the entirety of Instacast's interface, including the app icon, the MiniPlayer and each individual dialog in Instacast's settings. The MiniPlayer's interface looks fantastic with Yosemite's dark mode too. We also added the new episode lists from Instacast 5 on iOS, including list syncing via Instacast Cloud.
Instacast's redesign is a big deal and took a lot of hard work. And because Instacast now uses the new APIs in Yosemite, the new version requires OS X 10.10 to run. Instacast 1.2.6 will remain available for download to use with older systems, and you can run Instacast 1 and 2 side-by-side.
If you have a current Instacast Membership, then you'll get Instacast 2 completely free of charge. If you don't have an Instacast Membership yet, you can purchase Instacast Membership for $14.99 per year and get Instacast for Mac 2 for free with your membership purchase, as well as all iOS in-app purchases and other membership benefits too. Alternatively, Instacast 2 is available to purchase without a membership for $19.99 for a single license, or for $5 as an upgrade to an existing Instacast 1 license. Finally, If you bought Instacast for Mac 1.x after September 1st 2014, then you'll get the upgrade for free automatically (regardless if you bought from us or from the App Store).
Because we want to give discounts to all qualifying Instacast users, we won't be making Instacast 2 available on the App Store: the App Store doesn't provide a solution to discount app upgrades. If you've bought Instacast 1 from the App Store, please download Instacast 2 from our website and you'll receive all the upgrade benefits.
We hope you enjoy using Instacast for Mac 2.0.
UPDATE: We had a problem correctly signing our binary. This issue should be fixed now. Please re-download here.
