Link: Speaking of the UI in Apple’s Podcasts App ☍

Shared on June 27, 2012

Chris Armstrong put together a great list of comparisons and examined Apple’s newest app (via The Loop):

Whilst there may be those who disagree with the taste of certain design decisions of Podcasts, or some developers who worry that their businesses could be hurt because of the move, I believe Apple’s entrance into this space is a great sign. Maybe I’m just optimistic, but when Apple takes the time and resources to build a dedicated Podcast app, I think podcasters should feel relieved.

I really like the tape design—it’s a bit silly, but does give the feel of what most podcasts are—amateur recordings passed around.
