Along with updates for OS X Mavericks and iTunes, Apple also rolled out an update for its iPhone Podcasts app on Thursday. Podcasts 2.1 added a new Unplayed tab that makes it easier to find downloaded podcasts you haven't listened to yet, and added support for using Siri spoken commands to interact with the app.

Curious.

I wonder if this is why my podcast app kept crashing last night while I was trying to play my favourite podcasts during my evening workout. I had to delete the app and then reinstall it, which is likely the updated version.
