I was poking at my iPhone with the OS 3 upgrade last night and discovered something new. When listening to a podcast, tap the screen once to show the "scrubber" slider. Underneath the slider Apple has added three icons.
- Envelop – Starts Mail and creates a message that says "Check out this podcast on iTunes" and then give the link to the item in the iTunes store.
- "Back 30 Seconds" – This one allows you to back up 30 seconds in podcast.
- 1x – Changes the playing speed of the podcast. The default is 1x (regular speed); the other values are 2x (twice regular speed), and 1/2x (half regular speed).
By the way, this particular episode was quite good. Find it in the iTunes store here.
