Download iTunes app link Instacast HD

This is the high definition version of the famous podcast client, Instacast. More screen, more video, more show notes, better browsing, push notifications and iCloud syncing.

It has everything you want from a native podcast client and it's so much better on the big iPad screen.

Easy-to-read Show Notes
Show notes are the heart of the app. Surf links along playing the show and read in-depth information about the things the hosts are talking about. Save articles for reading later using your favorite Read-Later service such as Instapaper or Readability. Show notes also include chapter lists when available and let you jump directly to a certain point in the show. Surf through the show archive by swiping and flicking with your fingers.

Enhanced Video Player
Instacast HD has an enhanced video player, that lets you control the video with minimal interaction. Change the screen brightness in low light situations or stream the video to your Apple TV via AirPlay. Playback controls are positioned in a way that you don't have to touch the middle area where the video is playing, keeping the important parts of your screen fingerprint-free. Hide the player and continue playing only the audio portion of the video while surfing the show notes or browsing the web.

Direct Download
Instacast automatically downloads the most recent episodes and caches it on the device for later offline consumption. With the integrated Download Manager you can pause downloading, resume later and re-prioritize downloads. If the connection drops, Instacast will resume downloading later as soon as the internet connection is available again.

Push Notifications
Exclusively on the iPad, Instacast HD can notify you automatically as soon as a new episode gets published by the author. Get the notification, tap it and Instacast will refresh and automatically download the episode and boom, you're ready to play.

iCloud Syncing
Introduced first on the iPhone, Instacast HD can sync your podcasts subscriptions wirelessly via iCloud. Have your subscriptions in sync all the time both on your iPhone and on your iPad. There is no setup, just enable it and you're done. No headache anymore.

Celebrate with us -- Limited Time Offer
In honor of Scientific American magazine being recognized by the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) with a 2011 award for General Excellence we are making our Origins and Endings app available for $1.99 (a 50% discount off the regular price)...but only until June 1st, 2011!

Welcome to "Origins and Endings," a special edition of Scientific American. For our debut on the iPad we curated some of our favorite articles from two single-topic issues, "Origins" and "The End," and added interactive informational graphics that show how things work as well as slide shows, audio interviews with scientists and video supplements.

The app tells a compelling story: from the origins of the universe, of life on Earth and our early human ancestors through to what happens to our bodies after we die, the odds of an apocalypse, and the end of time. Our interactive feature "How Much Is Left?" demonstrates how long it will take before some of Earth's most crucial resources are depleted, whereas "The Future of Biotech and Agritech" offers smart suggestions for alternatives. Finally, in the app's Innovations section we explain how computing began long before the transistor and how that technology evolved into technologies today, including your iPad. We explain the origins of many everyday items and phenomena found in the kitchen, office and the fields of entertainment, transportation and medicine.

Download now for:
* 8 Feature articles from Scientific American enhanced with interactive informational graphics and multimedia supplements
* 2 Interactive features--"How Much Is Left" and "Laying Odds on the Apocalypse"
