Apple iTunes Store celebrates 1 billion podcast subscriptions

Apple has highlighted the most popular podcasts on iTunes in a new promotion

Apple's iTunes Store now has more than one billion podcast subscriptions, the company has announced.

To celebrate the milestone, Apple has highlighted some of the most popular podcasts on the iTunes Store since Podcasts on iTunes launched in 2005.

According to Apple, there are over 250,000 podcasts on the iTunes Store, spanning 100 different languages. Those podcasts amount to eight million individual episodes to date.

"From comedy to hard news to sports to innovative content and so much more, podcasting has transformed the global media landscape," Apple says on its new podcast promotion.

Among the highlighted podcasts in Australia are Nova 969's Hughesy and Kate, Hamish & Andy, and Media Watch, as well as Dr Karl K on triplej, Sydney Opera House - Ideas at the House, and The Patch.

Apple updated its iOS Podcasts app in March, bringing with it a redesigned interface that foretold the design of iOS 7, as well as new features like playlists, custom stations and enhanced iCloud support.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
