Subscriptions should update more reliably
Apple has released a minor update for its official Podcasts app, v2.0.1. Users can now pull to refresh subscriptions listed under the My Podcasts tab. The update also fixes two major bugs: one would cause podcasts to suddenly stop, while the other prevented subscriptions from updating automatically.
Minor fixes deal with the app's stability. Podcasts is a free download and runs on any device with iOS 7 or later.
