This week, Apple updated its web interface for podcasts to make it cleaner and more user-friendly.
What is known
Users will be able to open podcast directories,without going to iTunes. Now the episodes will be available in a web browser and each has a dedicated page with details and notes. The web interface still provides the ability to navigate to iTunes to read reviews or access trend charts.
To view podcasts, just click the button“Play” on the page of interest. The episode links use the podcasts.apple.com URL instead of itunes.apple.com, which could be confirmation of rumors about iTunes being split into different apps.
