Apple has updated Podcasts for iPhone and iPad with significant improvements to performance and stability. Additionally, Podcasts in your library will show the number of unplayed episodes, Top Stations will show the podcast title if artwork is missing, and when playing the next episode, playback speed is remembered.
Do you find these changes to improve the Podcasts experience? Is Podcasts syncing play position more reliably now? Or are you sticking with a third party player? Let us know!
