ZCast, the app that makes podcasting from an iOS device easy, just got a big new update that makes it an even greater platform for publishing your own shows.

Version 3.0 gives users the ability to record in studio-quality audio, and support for social media embeds that allow fans to enjoy your content directly within tweets and Facebook posts.

ZCast turns your iPhone into a recording studio and offers all the tools you need to create great podcasts wherever you are. With every update, it has delivered new features — like support for pre-recorded podcasts — that make the process even simpler.

Version 3.0, which is available to download today, follows the same path.

ZCast now supports high-definition audio at up to 48KHz in stereo. You can stream it in real-time so fans don’t have to wait for your latest episode, then edit and publish it to iTunes and Google Play for those who want to catch up later.

“Building a product that produces and record this high-quality audio from a phone or any web browser, was not an easy task, especially being a super lean company with minimal funding,” said ZCast CEO Raz Yalov.

In addition, this update brings the ability to embed your ZCast recordings into social media posts. Fans will be able to listen to them on Twitter or Facebook without leaving the page or even downloading the ZCast app.

Yalov says his company’s next challenge is additional integrations, bringing ZCast to Android, and “understanding the needs of podcasters worldwide so we can better cater to them.”

To get started with ZCast, download the latest update from the App Store now.
