The Brooks Review and Instacast – Two Things To Become a Member Of

A [recent episode of the B&B Podcast]( and the release of [Instacast 3](*bqlTuiXSo&offerid=146261&type=3&subid=0&tmpid=1826&[^f1624] made me think about the “memberships” that some sites offer. If you are looking to support people doing good work online and in various app stores, I suggest you become members of the following:

* [The Brooks Review]( – The quality of Ben Brooks’ recent work has vaulted him to the top of the link-blog / tech blog / mac blog mountain. His pieces are getting more in-depth and more insightful. It is well worth the $4 a month to support his site and encourage him to continue doing such quality work.

* [Instacast]( – The recent update to Instacast has solidified its position as *the* podcasting app for iOS. Recently, the developer also announced that there would be a [Mac version](|17) of Instacast to complement the existing iOS versions. An iOS and Mac podcasting ecosystem, held together with [Instacast’s new Cloud Sync](, sounds amazing. By becoming an Instacast member, you can help support the development of the app and the further improvement of the syncing engine.[^fn1]

[^fn1]: One additional member benefit is that members got early access to the 3.0 version, and got the 3.0 version for free when it was released. I am not sure that will happen with the Mac version, but I have heard rumblings that it is the case.
