    Well we thought that we might have to wait until iOS 6 for this, but AppleInsider reports today that Apple has released a new, standalone Podcasts app in the App Store. The app is free, and universal, and is described by Apple as being “the easiest way to discover, subscribe to and play your favourite podcasts on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.†The app gives you easy access to a massive amount of free audio and video podcasts from Apple’s extensive Podcasts Catalog, and will organize your podcasts for you by topic, using the new Top Stations feature. Here’s a complete list of all the new app’s key features, courtesy of Apple, and AppleInsider:

    This is an excellent idea from Apple, as a way of highlighting all the fantastic content to be found in its huge library of podcasts.

    Click here to download the free app: Podcasts for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    I just downloaded the app and it looks great. It seems to be a much better way of finding,downloading and watching or listening to podcasts.

    Downloaded this yesterday and not really sure it does anything that e.g. Downcast doesn't already address, tbh. Disappointed that there doesn't seem to be any way of importing an existing podcast list from anything other than iTunes i.e. no OPML import. Or maybe that's an iOS 6-only thing.

    I tried and had a similar experience. The fouled-up Music app on iOS 5 drove me to use Downcast, and now I need a good reason to switch to the iPod app and haven't found one.
