Instacast Discontinued as Parent Company Vemedio Runs out of Money ➝

Benjamin Mayo, writing for 9 to 5 Mac:

In an email sent to paid members, Martin Hering says that all of Vemedio’s products will be ‘discontinued’, with Instacast being the most well known app affected by this. The company says they will keep the servers up for as long as possible so current users will not be left with non-functional apps immediately.

I hate seeing a software company close up shop, especially one that develops a great app like Instacast. If you’re still using the app, I suggest switching to Overcast as soon as you can. There’s no telling how long Vemedio will be able to keep the servers running and, in my opinion, Overcast by far the best podcast client available.
