RIM notified us today that BlackBerry Podcasts has received a significant upgrade. I’m not seeing the update yet in App World, but we’re told its coming in the next 24 hours for users in North America.
Here are some of the new features in version 1.5:
- Addition of a preview or play option while the podcast is downloading
- Web podcast searching with integrated Google® search
- Improved content presentation within categories: the first 40 listings in each category will be “featured content,” a combination of the most popular feeds and RIM-programmed feeds
Let us know if you’re seeing the update and how version 1.5 is working for you!
