Apple's standalone Podcasts app for iOS is out

Quote:
The anticipated breakup of the iOS Music app and the vast universe of podcasting content is underway, well in advance of iOS 6. Apple has released a standalone Podcasts app, combining the features of the podcasts tab in the Music app with the iTunes Store section for podcasts; it lets users stream audio or download programs for later listening and subscribe to shows on their devices.

There's a new Top Stations guide to help you find shows you like (ahem), a sleep timer to help you doze off, and social features to post favorite episodes to Twitter/Facebook/email. Syncing tools let you match up your podcasts in iTunes on your computer with your device, and you can even sync your playback position between devices to pick up where you left off.

Podcasts is on the App Store now for iOS devices running iOS 5.1 or later.

Pleased this has arrived. Nice little app but . . . . . . . no iCloud integration . . . . maybe next time.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

Hi, I have been having some inconvenience with the Podcasts app on my iPhone. While it is a bliss to have (compared to the Music app's support for podcasts), I am still finding it hard to keep my podcasts up to date.

What I mean is that even if I set Subscription to ON and Auto-Download to ON for a certain podcast, and I set the "Episodes to Keep" to "Last 2 Episodes", new episodes will still not get updated and automatically downloaded unless I manually open the Podcast from the app.

I am always making sure that my Data connection or if not WIfi is running and that the Podcasts app is running in the background. Is this a bug, or it is me doing something wrong?

Slv er nederlag.

Hey there. While I agree that the new app is a convenience, and podcasts needed to be segregated from music, I have been experiencing several issues with the app in addition to those listed above.

The most noticeable is that if I have a paused podcast as the active playing file, it will automatically start playing through the iPhone speakers as soon as I disconnect from a phone call.

I've also experienced some trouble with downloading the correct podcast; two days in a row, the automatically downloaded podcast has shown the current date, but the actual file has been 3 months old. When I delete and re-download, I get the previous day's podcast with the current date, and have ended up having to stream it from the catalog. I hope these issues are resolved in subsequent releases.
QUOTE Thanks
