I have never liked overcast. when I tried it, the number of unplayed episodes to keep was weird… the number I wanted was missing and there was no way to enter it. and marco is a huge whiner so thats a negative also. I use Downcast on IOS and it has always had a native macOS version that syncs wonderfully with iOS.
I came to Overcast from Pocketcasts, as that synced on Android and iPhone but I ran in to issues with syncing. Overcast hasn’t given me any issues. I haven’t tried the default Podcasts app to be fair, but may well be suitable.
So Apollo just showed an update available through the mac appstore and updated just like a mac app even though I “sideloaded” it because it was not listed as a hybrid app. This just gets more and more interesting.
one of my workflows while reading the news with fiery feeds is texting interesting articles to friends with gvconnect thru the url scheme. that is now available on the mac also. love it.
This may be the perfect time to endorse using iMazing to back up your .ipa files (iOS apps) on your mac. That way, when app developers decide they don’t want you running their app on your mac and try to enforce it with an update, you can override their decision by installing the previous version that worked fine on your mac.
