Current version is 2.11.26. As for the app itself: I could only compare it to iTunes, as I'm still on Mojave, and I find Downcast easier to setup and use.

QUESTIONS: Wondering if: 1. App has "rewind" by ## seconds 2. If a Mac subscription will sync with iOS subscription. 3. Can it play podcasts which ONLY exist locally (ie on my computer)

Downcast for iDevices has never worked 100% for syncing. If syncing is your goal, good luck, or at least better luck than mine! Apart from syncing, Downcast has been reliable.
