We produce a half-dozen or so podcasts a week here at iMore and Mobile Nations and it can be tough to keep track of them all. So, from now on, we're going to be rounding all the iPhone, iPad, and Mac-centric stuff up for you every Monday so you can quickly find anything you might have missed and catch up on anything that interests you! This week we deep dive on WhatsApp and what it means, take development down to the geeky kernel, pick some apps to help make school less stressful, find out how Finish got started, and nerded out over Blade Runner. Check them out!
