While iOS devices have long-since offered users the ability to seek out digital broadcasts, the unveiling of Apple Podscasts, an app dedicated to streamlining the podcast-listening experience, will certainly make it easier to find intriguing digital discussions to listen to on-the-go.
The application was created to allows users to take full advantage of the multitude of podcasts available on iTunes and be able to play them on a specifically designed interface made for playing them easily.
It makes it easier for users to seek out the podcasts that they subscribe to most frequently and provides them with a platform for storing and playing these broadcasts. The interface offers a mildly enhanced 'skip' function that allows users to not only rewind but also to quickly pass over 30-second intervals of material if they are looking for a particular section of the podcast or want to listen to something a second time.
