There are a lot of great apps I didn't know I needed until I had them. This one I missed from the beginning. Totally worth it.

Instacast is another great way to organize and access my desired information. Podcasting is my most frequent method of digesting information, but there are a few podcasters that I do subscribe (the crews at 5by5, We Have Communicators, and Mars Hill Church), and Instacast enables me to automatically scan for and download their updates, and then notifies me of when there's something new. I also love the ability to listen in 1.5x or 2x speed.

This app works great in my car! I can skip forward and back using the control keys on the steering wheel. Really useful. All the others don't have this option.

Has a few quirks, but is way better than the Apple "Podcasts" app for podcasts on the iPhone. The Instacast HD app for the iPad SUCKS, stick to Downcast for podcasts on the iPad.
