Instacast Gains Apple A7 64-Bit Processor Support And Other Enhancements
The popular podcast client Instacast has just been updated to version 4.1, just three weeks after its huge 4.0 update. Released on the same day as the official launch of iOS 7, Instacast 4.0 introduced a new interface inspired, of course, by the new operating system. It also added a number of enhancements, including support for Background App Refresh. "While there are a few quirks with Instacast 4 that I’m not particularly fond of, I am still pleased with the update overall," Daniel notes in conclusion of his review of Instacast 4. "I’m so glad that all of my favorite apps are being updated for iOS 7 so quickly, and Instacast 4 is not an exception." Now, Instacast 4.1 is here with another round of enhancements, most notable of which is support for Apple's new A7 64-bit processor, which is built into the iPhone 5s.
