Earlier this week, Apple launched a free app which promises to be a big hit among Apple iPhone and Apple iPad users who are soccer fans.
The Podcasts app for iPhone and iPad devices automatically grabs your podcast subscriptions and makes them available on your portable devices. But best yet, you can subscribe to and download each episode over a 3G or Wi-Fi connection without having to sync with iTunes on your computer. For soccer fans on the go, like me, it’s a perfect way to listen to your favorite soccer podcasts and to make sure you don’t miss an episode.
One of the limitations to the growth of podcasts in the past was that located deep within iTunes, so it would take several clicks to discover new podcast shows. With the Podcasts app, podcasts are just a touch away. Plus, it makes it easier to sort through the library to find new shows. For example, here’s a complete guide of soccer podcasts from two years ago to sort through, many of which are still running.
If you haven’t listened to soccer podcasts before, I recommend the EPL Talk Podcast (currently coined the Euro Talk Podcast for the Euro 2012 tournament).
