Popular podcast player Overcast has reached its long-awaited third iteration on the iOS App Store, with improvements to episode management and a slew of other UI enhancements.

Designed by Instapaper developer Marco Arment, Overcast 3’s most obvious change is that it adopts the design language of iOS 10, such as the use of stacked views which Apple introduced in Apple Music, so screens including Now Playing, settings, downloads, and recommendations, now appear as stacks that slide up from the bottom of the interface. There’s also a redesigned Now Playing view, in which users swipe right to adjust audio settings, and swipe left to view episode information.



A new episode action tray features in the app, grouping actions that were previously hidden behind swipe gestures or other menus. Tapping an episode in a list now displays buttons to share, star, play, add to queue, and delete the selected podcast episode.

Elsewhere, Peek and Pop 3D Touch gestures are now supported in episode list screens, allowing users to quickly preview episode contents and access play and delete shortcuts in the by sliding up the Peek card. An Overcast 3 widget for the home screen has also been developed, which allows users to see what’s playing, resume playback, and see upcoming episodes in their Up Next queue.



Also included in Overcast 3 is a redesign of its Apple Watch component, with the ability to view upcoming episodes from the wrist.

Overcast 3 is available as a free ad-supported app, while an optional $9.99 in-app purchase gets users a premium ad-free version. Overcast 3 is available for iPhone and iPad from the App Store. [Direct Link]

Leslie Jones has responded to Milo Yiannopoulos’ most recent controversy after video of the alt-right poster boy appearing to defend pedophilia surfaced online over the weekend.

“You guys are giving him too much energy,” the “Saturday Night Live” cast member said to her followers over Twitter Monday night, adding, “I was done the day I blocked him.” The right-wing extremist harassed Jones with racist messages over Twitter, prompting some of his 300,000-plus followers to do the same, before he was banned from the social media platform last summer.

“Been done and moved on. He has no space here!” she wrote. 

Publishing giant Simon & Schuster announced Monday that it had canceled its deal to publish Yiannopoulos’ book, Dangerous, under an imprint in light of the news. It’s a deal, announced late last year, that Jones had criticized. Although the company stated it does not “condone discrimination or hate speech,” the comedian said over Twitter that giving platforms to people who do helps “spread their hate to even more people.”

Yiannopoulos, an editor at Breitbart, was also uninvited from the Conservative Political Action Conference where he was scheduled to speak alongside Vice President Mike Pence and President Trump top aide Steve Bannon.

In the controversial recording, Yiannopoulos calls age of consent “arbitrary and opressive,” suggesting that pedophilia may be acceptable between adults and children as young as 13. Spoiler: It’s not.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State got a much-needed bounce-back win Monday night — and in the process, its head coach hit a milestone.

Longtime Fox News journalist Brenda Buttner has died.

Buttner, a business correspondent and host of “Bulls & Bears,” died of cancer on Monday, according to reports. She was 55.

The Harvard grad and Rhodes Scholar joined Fox News in 2000 after hosting CNBC’s “The Money Club.” She began her career at an NBC affliate in Reno, Nevada.

Fox News host Neil Cavuto of “Your World” honored Buttner on the air Monday, calling her “unflappable.” “Brenda Buttner made us want to watch a business show with heart ― her heart,” he said in the clip below.

Cavuto noted that Buttner once said that being female gave her an advantage in personal finance because women aren’t afraid to admit when they don’t know something. “Women realize there is no such thing as a stupid question when it comes to understanding an investment,” Buttner told the Sun-Sentinel.  

Here are some of the social media tributes:
