Apple has issued a maintenance update to its Podcasts app for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices. The new 2.0.1 edition, now available free in the App Store, brings a handy pull to refresh feature allowing you to pull down on the My Subscriptions screen in order to manually refresh your subscriptions. Additionally, this version of Podcasts brings a few other fixes, listed right after the break…
Podcasts 2.0.1 resolves an issue that may cause playback to stop unexpectedly, which has happened to me a lot.
It also fixes a problem where subscriptions may stop updating with new episodes (haven’t encountered this issue) and of course includes “additional improvements to overall stability”.
iTunes release notes mention no other changes aside from the aforementioned refinements.
