Biggest iPhone, iPad, and Apple podcasts of 2012

We do a lot of podcasts, both at iMore and at the Mobile Nations network in general. Any given week, we're putting out 5 or more hours of audio and video. Multiply that by the course of year, add in some trade show coverage, cross-overs, and appearances on other networks, and you get the idea. In 2012 we took it up yet another notch. We added more shows, stretched a little beyond mobile, and ramped up a lot of our production efforts. To see which ones you liked the most, we once again turned to analytics and counted all the plays.

Here are your favorite podcasts of the 2012!

Do you use something else entirely? Or do you not listen to podcasts at all?

Apple Podcasts app review

Shortly after Apple unveiled iOS 6 at WWDC 2012, they released the standalone Podcasts app into the App Store. Previously, podcasts were downloaded via the iTunes app and could be played back in either the Music or Video app, depending on whether they were audio or video podcasts. That split, along with with the lack of any ability to subscribe to podcasts, made it a less than ideal experience (which numerous third party apps tried to solve.) Now, with the dedicated Podcasts app, and with its iOS 6 and iPhone 5 updates, Apple is better is solving it themselves.

Note: This was originally supposed to be part of my iOS 6 review but due to size and time constraints, I'm posting it separately, an belatedly.
