Apple's New iOS App: Podcasts

I listen to podcasts everyday and have come to rely on third party apps like Instacast to get the job done without having to sync with iTunes. This app is a big deal to the podcast community and one that I have been waiting for since seeing the removal of podcasts from the iTunes app in the iOS 6 beta.

Existing podcasts from the music app are imported automatically and can now be subscribed to from within the app, new episodes are downloaded automatically and player positions are synced between devices.

The Top Stations "Dial" and reel to reel tape player behind the cover art is a nice touch, giving the app a whimsical feel while keeping the main user interface clean and elegant.
