Here's the changelog (for v188.8.131.52) since the last time we featured BringCast here, in a review:
- Fix invalid download state shown on feed items for items automatically downloaded via background scanning
- Single process feed fresh. This should make feed refreshing more reliable as there is now a single codepath
- During feed refreshing, Toasts will now be shown always for feeds configured to show them no matter if app is in background or foreground
- OneDrive Import / Export re-implemented using most recent OneDrive SDK: should make database import/export work more reliably and fix import/export being utterly broken for some users
- OPML import / Export fixed
- Improved reliability of store licensing;
- new in-app purchases to reward the developers :-)
- Small performance enhancement for initial app launch
- If there is no network and you click the manual Sync button, a message will be shown explaining this fact
The situation in the Microsoft Store is a little confusing. There's a 'public beta' which we last linked to, but the one you need now is this one, the catch-all entry for the official production version of BringCast. Except that the Store description has yet to catch up with reality - if you visit this URL on your Windows 10 Mobile-running phone then you should get v184.108.40.206, i.e. the very latest UWP app, never mind what the Store says as I write this 'flow' story!
Here's v220.127.116.11 in action:
BringCast has perhaps come of age with this release. The most controversial bit is the switch to a 'service' model, but 72p a month is neither here nor there in the grand scheme of things and don't we all want to support dedicated Windows developers in 2017? Grab this podcatcher for free here in the Store and then head into the 'Get Pro Features' section on the bottom toolbar.
