Overcast 4.2

Marco Arment introducing Overcast 4.2:

In Overcast 4.2, the login screen now prominently encourages anonymous accounts by default.

If you already have an account in iCloud, it’ll pop up a dialog box over this screen asking if you want to use it.

And the first time you launch 4.2, people with email-based accounts will be encouraged to migrate them to anonymous accounts.

How often do you get an update to an app that asks for less information from you? I’ve been an Overcast user since it launched, and Marco’s commitment to this kind of thing adds to my desire to keep supporting his work for a long time.
