Problem with March 7 Downcast Update

I am using an iPhone 4S with the latest version of IOS 7. After the most recent Downcast update, the app does not open for me. I don't want to delete and reinstall the app, since I have many gigs of unlistened to podcasts and I don't want to loose the history of what I have and have not listened to. Any advice would be much appreciated, as I am going through podcast withdrawal.

Ah Ok so it was not just you

Ah Ok so it was not just you that had it crash on you. I think they are aware of this and will come up with a fix.

Take care.
