HOWTO | USE IOS 9’S POD­CASTS APP

Mac Format - - IMPROVE -

1 Un­played episodes

The new Pod­casts app has an Un­played tab at the bot­tom, serv­ing as a sin­gle place to catch up on un­heard episodes from all of your sub­scribed pod­casts. They’re listed in re­verse chrono­log­i­cal or­der. Tap any one of them to play it; play­back con­tin­ues back­wards in time from that episode.

2 Be more se­lec­tive

Sta­tions are sim­i­lar, but you choose the pod­casts they pull episodes from. Tap + in the Un­played or My Pod­casts tab to make one. Choose some pod­casts, tap Sta­tion Set­tings, set things like how many episodes to play and in what or­der, then tap Done. Your sta­tions are at the top of My Pod­casts.

3 Man­age sub­scrip­tion set­tings

Af­ter sub­scrib­ing to a pod­cast in the Fea­tured or Top Charts tabs, go to it in My Pod­casts. You can view all episodes by tap­ping Feed, or just fresh ones in Un­played. Tap the cog icon to cus­tomise down­load and play­back op­tions for that pod­cast – you can set de­faults in Set­tings > Pod­casts.

4 Queue up episodes

When play­ing a pod­cast, tap the MiniPlayer above the bot­tom bar, then the list icon (bot­tom-right) to see Up Next. To add an episode to this queue, tap the el­lip­sis next to it in Un­played or My Pod­casts, and then pick ei­ther Play Next to pri­ori­tise it, or Add to Up Next to tack it on at the end.
