How to watch and listen to podcasts with the iMore app for iPhone

If you are a regular iMore reader, you're probably already aware that we have lots of great podcast content from the iMore show to Debug and many more. Regardless what podcast you listen to or watch, our new iMore 2.0 app gives you the ability to not only listen to, but watch podcasts directly on your iPhone. You can even queue them up for offline listening if you want. This includes all our sister sites too such as AndroidCentral and CrackBerry. All your podcasts, in one app, ready to be enjoyed whenever you'd like.

Follow along and we'll show you how.

If you haven't already picked up the iMore app for iPhone, it's available now in the App Store and you can grab it by hitting the link below directly from your iPhone.

How to stream audio and video podcasts directly with the iMore app

  1. Launch the iMore app from the Home screen of your iPhone.
  2. Tap on the Podcasts tab along the bottom. If it isn't viewable, tap on the More tab and then choose podcasts. (You can also rearrange tabs in the iMore app if you'd like.)
  3. Along the top you can choose sections. To view all shows, tap on the All Shows option in the middle.
  4. Now tap on the show name you'd like to see episodes for. You'll notice that you can toggle between audio and video podcasts along the bottom. Toggle to the one you'd like by tapping on it.
  5. Tap on a specific show that you'd like to stream and tap the Play button in the lower right hand corner.

That's all there is to it. You can close out of the app and audio will continue to play. If you're playing a video, it will be brought up in an in-app browser window.

How to download podcasts for offline listening or viewing with the iMore app

  1. Launch the iMore app from the Home screen of your iPhone.
  2. Tap on the Podcasts tab along the bottom. If it isn't viewable, tap on the More tab and then choose podcasts. (You can also rearrange tabs in the iMore app if you'd like.)
  3. Along the top you can choose sections. To view all shows, tap on the All Shows option in the middle.
  4. Now tap on the show name you'd like to see episodes for. You'll notice that you can toggle between audio and video podcasts along the bottom. Toggle to the one you'd like by tapping on it.
  5. Tap on a specific show you'd like to download. Tap on the Download button in the bottom right hand corner (it's to the left of the play button for streaming).
  6. Your episode will begin downloading and it will now show up in the Queue tab in the podcasts section. You can access here whenever you'd like.

That's it. You can access all your downloaded podcasts whenever you'd like from the Queue section of the Podcasts tab.

Help and how to editor for iMore. I can take apart an iPhone in less than 6 minutes. I also like coffee and Harry Potter more than anyone really should.

nat750 says:

I like the iMore app that much it's actually made it to my main home screen page on my iPhone ie my most used apps.

iMore has always been on front page, top row even and now the app is better. I like the addition of podcasts too, now I'm hard pressed deciding whether or not to keep Instacast 3 because all of the podcasts I subscribe to are in the iMore app and I have to download them. I always download so I don't have to deal with lag or buffering. Mobile Nations is awesome!

As always Ally a very concise and complete tutorial. Just tried it and it works great. Thank you once again.

Simple, and easy. So how do I get you guys to record more Ad Hoc podcasts? Vfx contracts and out sourcing? Hobbit's frame rate? JJ doing Star Wars? The newest Nolan DC rumors? Just about anything Marvel these days? I know you geeked out over something lately, let's talk about it!
Seriously though, solo Rene isn't as entertaining but still delivers a good solid podcast. Thanks for keeping it fresh.

Is there an iMore app for iPad in the works? If there were with push notifications..I wouldn't have missed that app.net invite :P
anyway, it is painful to try the iPhone app on the iPad. Hope you release a HD version soon :)
Great job guys

Thanks for the tut on how to do things. Maybe a beginner area for things your device does. Example hold power button and home screen button to take a picture of screen. Had a iPhone for 3 years and didn't know this could be done.

thatguykc says:

Dang! That is sweet. I'll be listening in during my workout tomorrow morning.

MacIntense says:

Super easy. Wow you guys put a lot of thought into this app. I use it many times a day but had no idea I could get the podcasts right from there...had been used the Apple podcast app. Super helpful write up and I will be using it this week...thanks.
