In this week's Free App Friday, we take a moment to salute the smallest pillar of the iTunes arsenal--the podcast. While an incredibly simple concept, the freedom of the Internet has assured that there's a show pretty much on every subject possible. Some shows inform us about the world at large, while some teach you how to build that shelf you've been putting off for quite some time, while others exist simply to entertain. If you're looking to jump in, there's simply no better choice than WTF with Marc Maron.
It's the little things that keeps us coming back for more. Today, Apple released a Podcasts app that allows users to subscribe and listen to podcasts on any iOS device without having to delve deep into the Music app. Frequent podcast listeners will appreciate the ease of us, the large display tiles for each podcast, and the ability to discover new shows without launching iTunes. What's more: now you can just place the icon on the front page of your iPhone for instant podcast access!
