It was only last week that we talked about the rumor of a dedicated Podcast app from Apple, and now we have it. We thought we might have to wait for iOS 6, but Christmas has come early for Podcast and iOS users.
The new app is called, quite simply, "Podcasts", and is available for all iOS devices running iOS 5.1 or later. Podcasts features a bunch of ways to browse and discover new podcasts through the thousands upon thousands of the things.
Podcasts also includes a new Top Stations feature that groups together select podcasts by category, as well as the ability to either stream, or download the episodes for offline use. Podcasts is optimized for both the iPad, and iPhone versions, and it's also able to sync podcasts with iTunes to your Mac, or PC. You will need to have iTunes 10.6.3 first.
