  • Podcasts App to See Update Today


    Apple’s previously released Podcasts caused many users to complain about bugs, crashes, and other issues which became apparent upon its release. According to All Things D, an update is set to release later today that is said to not only fix the problems but also “vastly improve” the app and the experience it provides:

    Podcasts users take note: Apple has been hard at work tweaking the app to fix the problems that currently plague it and sources say the company expects to post an update to it this afternoon that should vastly improve it.
    Podcasts were previously housed in the iTunes app on iOS devices but Apple has been working to streamline the user experience by breaking out additional categories into their own apps, including Podcasts and iTunes U. As of right now, the majority of the reviews for the Podcasts app on the App Store give the app a low rating. Overall, the app has two-and-half stars, which is one of the lowest of all Apple’s apps. Many consumers were quite surprised by the lack of features and polish, especially from an app being developed by Apple itself. The app felt like it was prematurely released previously and hopefully this update changes things for the better.


    If you're interested in downloading the Podcasts app to try the updated version, you can do so by clicking the link above. Be sure to share your experience after trying the new iteration.

      Well, it's live. I really don't notice anything different though. I never had any problems with it anyway.

      Just for a stupid podcast app? No way, especially if there is podcruncher as a good alternative.

      too bad they're getting a low rating... i think the app should not be released until they're 100% sure that it is bug-free...
