Apple has been dicking around with their iOS podcast app for the last couple of years and it’s been pissing people off. As a podcaster (see Geeks&Beats if you haven’t already) as well as a voracious consumer of podcasts, I’ve been most annoyed at what Apple has been doing.
However, iTunes 11.2–released this week–offers some improvement. It’s easier to browse and offers to automatically delete a podcast once you’ve listened to it. (Don’t worry, though, because you can favourite episodes you want to keep.) There’s also new Siri and CarPlay integration with v2.1 of the iOS app.
This is a free update that you can get through iTunes “Software Update” menu selection or you can just take it right from the Apple website.
