Apple Podcasts now offers web playback feature

Apple Reportedly Bringing Apple Music, Apple TV Apps to the Mac Apple rumored to split up iTunes in forthcoming MacOS release

Apple is expected to reveal more details about these new apps at this years Worldwide Developer Conference in June. In fact, the episode links use a podcast.apple.com URL instead of itunes.apple.com, which is further proof of the iTunes rumors. In addition, Apple is clearly pursuing its strategy of aligning the code of its apps as an integral part of macOS. Controls are pretty simple - just hit "play" - but this means you won't automatically be booted to iTunes to listen.

The new apps are said to be Marzipan applications, similar to the Apple News app on the Mac, which will share an overarching design and codebase with their iOS counterparts on the iPhone and iPad. The company already allows users to access their Apple Music and Apple TV content through iTunes, but it will now introduce dedicated apps for both the services.

What are your thoughts on Marzipan apps from Apple? The 9to5Mac report clearly states that iTunes will not be completely killed off as the app will continue to exist but its functionality will be reduced heavily. iTunes still remains the only possible way for those who use an iPod to transfer songs. Everything looks much more modern and easy to read, and while there is still the option of listening in iTunes we also now have the option to listen via the web, too. It's the same platform Apple used to make the News app on Mac.

The move would make a lot of sense on Apple's part. iTunes is both ancient (by software standards) and nearly universally reviled by the internet. Have you tried them on your Mac?
