Apple’s Podcasts App Delivers a Solid Listening Experience | iPad.AppStorm | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"n iOS 6, Apple decided it was time to remove the podcasts function of the Music app and replace it with a standalone app, available for free in the App Store. Properly titled Podcasts, this app released in June of this year, but has been under much criticism for its half-baked design, lag and lack of functionality. Since then, there have been three updates to the app, the last of which arriving the day of iOS 6’s release. All the same, is this app even worth the trouble Apple has gone to thus far?"

"When I first began this process of introducing apps I used an HDMI cable to connect the iPad to my projector. The reason I moved to the less “techy” document camera is because it allows my class to actually see what their friends are touching on the iPad. This really helps them learn how to play them.

"...And then this week Brian Eno follows up his ground breaking Bloom app with Scape. This app is amazingly tactile and the output is consistently tranquil and unique each time. It’s a little expensive, but I think it’s worth it to give children the opportunity to create something that not only sounds original, but also looks like a piece of art."
