-Direct links to podcasters' Patreon pages, making it easier than ever to support your favorite shows.

-Comedians’ tour schedules in their Laughable profiles; check out where your favorite acts are performing and buy tickets to see them live!

-Direct links to comedians' Snapchat accounts – it’s all the rage these days (or so we're told).

-Personalized push notifications, so we can let you know when your favorite comics have a new episode available.

-Full support for iOS 10, which we've baked in with all the wholesome goodness of Swift 3.

And, as always, we squashed some bugs and made some performance improvements. Enjoy!
