It was not long ago that you had to listen to your Podcasts right through the music app on your iDevice. A short time ago Apple realized it would make sense to offer an app dedicated solely to the podcast. There is not much to it but now I can just tap the podcast icon and be right where I need to be. Often I only listen to podcasts, not music. Podcasts were the reason that I finally broke down and got an iPod so that I could listen to them as I was driving. The app also allows me to sync my podcasts on my iPhone and my iPad so that I can always have my subscribed to items ready to listen to. The other good feature is the snooze option that lets you set your podcast to turn off between 5 minutes and 1 hour or when the podcast ends. This way if you want to listen at night your device will take care of itself. The only caution that I can give you is that if you have never listened to a podcast before you can become addicted. Take some time and explore what is out there in Podcast Land you will not be sorry that you did.
