ituneslogo.jpgApple today released iTunes 11.2 with several improvements to Podcast browsing, giving users a way to find new episodes with an "Unplayed" tab and the ability to save favorite episodes to a computer.

Improved Podcast Browsing
-Quickly find episodes you haven't listened to in the new Unplayed tab
-Browse episodes that are available to download or stream in the Feed tab
-Save your favorite episodes to keep them on your computer
-Episodes can now be automatically deleted after you play them

iTunes and the iTunes Store ought to be separate applications. Stop trying to do everything in one app. Browsing my music should be simple.

Would also like to see the iOS device management spun out as well.

Oh hell yes. iTunes should be the jukebox and perhaps the music store, iDevice sync and functionality needs to be spun out.

Indeed. Unfortunately I just added a song and iTunes Match still (https://discussions.apple.com/message/25692503#25692503) takes forever / hangs at step 1.

Hopefully this fixes the crashes I've had with 11.1.5, usually related to playing internet radio streams. Actually, for being an 11.x release I would've expected better features than just podcast improvements.

I would love to lead the iTunes team and be given free reign to split it up into two apps, Store and Music. And add tagging a la Mavericks, and the ability to filter using multiple criteria to create ad hoc playlists. There's so much that could be done with this app, and the iTunes 11 redesign didn't really bring much to the table; it just moved the chairs around.

I would love for there to be a separate app for iOS devices. iTunes tends to lag whenever my devices begin to connect to it wirelessly, which is every time I start up the application.

Absolutely agree. And also, if I sign out of Match and then sign back in (in order to get it to function), I get a message box saying my computer is unauthorized. Every. Single. Time. Authorizing my computer has no effect. I'm still baffled as to why Apple has such a difficult time with cloud services.
