Apple releases new Podcasts app
Apple has released a brand new app to make it easier to discover, subscribe to and enjoy your favourite podcasts on your iPhone, iPod and iPad.
The Podcasts app makes it a snap to explore the various categories to find and subscribe to audio and video podcasts of interest.
This app also takes podcasts out of the music app and places them in an area of their own for even easier access.
The new Top Stations feature include an old school radio dial to easily explore the different series of podcasts which can be found within in a variety of broader topics including technology, business, arts, comedy, news, sports and much more.
Users can subscribe to podcasts with one touch and then automatically receive new episodes as they become available.
The app also gives users the choice to either download the file to their device or to stream it.
There are the usual playback controls which make it easy to skip forward and back.
And Podcasts also makes it even easier to share your favourite episodes with your friends via Twitter and by message and mail.
Podcasts is available now for free on the iTunes App Store.
