Apple Updates iOS Podcasts App With Minor Bug Fixes

Podcasts App

Late last month, Apple introduced a standalone Podcasts app, pulling the service out of the Music app on iOS and building a new UI around it. However, soon after release, it became apparent that the app was ridden with numerous bugs as with any introduction of a new user interface or application.

On Wednesday, the Cupertino company addressed these issues with an update to the Podcasts application. Aside from performance and stability improvements, the app has also gained the following:

  • Ability to remember custom playback speeds when flipping through new episodes
  • Badges in Podcast library to identify number of unplayed episodes
  • Fixes issue causing “Subscribe” button to defect and not operate properly
  • More reliable artwork for “Top Stations”
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes

Apple continues to remove smaller services built into iTunes and give them their own standalone applications and user interfaces. The app is currently offered as a free download on the App Store {iTunes Link} for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
