The app is free, and universal, and is described by Apple as being â€œthe easiest way to discover, subscribe to and play your favourite podcasts on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.â€ The app gives you easy access to a massive amount of free audio and video podcasts from Appleâ€™s extensive Podcasts Catalog, and will organize your podcasts for you by topic, using the new Top Stations feature. Hereâ€™s a complete list of all the new appâ€™s key features, courtesy of Apple, and AppleInsider:
