If you’re like millions of iPhone users, you love a good podcast. Once a pretty niche industry, podcasts are quickly replacing audiobooks and music playlists as the default form of audio entertainment on the go. The way things are going in the podcasting world, your favorite author is as likely to have a podcast as your next-door neighbor is.
If you go into your Podcasts app on your iPhone or iPad and take a look at a title, you'll see an option to "Subscribe." If you subscribe, that simply means that the most recent episode will be downloaded into your "My Podcasts" section. While you are subscribed, new episodes will download to "My Podcasts" automatically as soon as they are available. If you don't want to subscribe you can always download individual podcasts by tapping the download icon (the cloud with a down arrow).
Three more days until the latest iPhone software release. Ever since the September release of firmware 2.1 there has been speculation of what features might be added to 2.2. Confirmed improvements mostly revolve around the maps application, including pedestrian and Google Transit directions, Street View, and location sharing.
Firmware 2.2 also includes improvements to the MobileSafari browser, support for audio input from third-party devices, and over-the-air (OTA) podcasts. Downloads of audio or video podcasts will be limited to 10MB file sizes when using 3G or EDGE, similar to app store downloads.
