Apple is spinning the podcasts section out of iTunes into a standalone app. Users will still be able to download and play all of their favorite podcasts from their mobile devices. People who use iTunes through their PCs will still be able to find podcasts in iTunes. This isn’t the first time that Apple separated content into separate apps. When Apple’s e-books and digital publications started taking off, Apple spun it off into the Newstand app. iTunes U lectures have their own app as well.
