Chris Gonzales on the state of podcast apps on iOS 7:
The point is, I don't think I would necessarily call any of the current podcast apps the “best one” right now. They're all going through a phase of change and experimentation, like a kind of adolescence — all the kids are going through it, and there's no telling what the mature results will be like until the awkward phase is over. A painful analogy? Maybe, but I'm sticking with it.
I agree. Podcasts are more popular than ever, and iOS 7's new technologies lower the barrier to entry considerably for developers. It'll be interesting to see what Apple is planning for the Podcasts app.
