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.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
