Podcasts and iTunes U Apps for Your Third-Generation iPad
In iOS 6 on your third-generation iPad, you no longer download and manage podcasts and iTunes U courses with the iTunes app. For that you’ll need to download the free Podcasts and iTunes U apps from the App Store.
You may have noticed that the App Store app on your iPad offers nothing but apps. iTunes on your computer, on the other hand, includes sections for music, movies, TV shows, books, podcasts, and iTunes U.
On your iPad, you obtain music, movies, and TV shows with the iTunes app, and books and magazines with the Newsstand app, which are both included with your iPad. To download podcasts or iTunes U content, however, you’ll need the Podcasts or iTunes U apps, which (curiously) are not included with your iPad out of the box.
The good news is that both apps are free in the App Store, so if you want to shop for Podcasts or iTunes U content on your iPad, you should probably go download one or both apps now.
All these apps all work pretty much the same, so when you understand how to navigate the App Store app, you also know how to use all of the store apps.
