Apple Updates Podcasts App, No More Tape Reel

rightA day after I complained about the iOS Podcasts app, Apple have released an update that fixes a lot of the issues that disappointed users. I doubt there’s any connection.

What’s new? The main changes:

  • The app allows for the creation of playlists

  • Better management of subscribed podcasts, and syncing via iCloud between devices

  • No more tape reel. A dubious piece of UI that’s now kaput. The new interface looks considerably more slick.

It remains to be seen, but this update could seriously edge out independent developers of pod catcher apps.
