    Hello in Safari it appears the website has changed.  I CAN navigate to the “Podcast” window by going to Publications > Magazines > Podcasts, and choose the magazine and AAC format like in your video, but the page doesn’t update to show the URL.  There’s nothing below the Close button now.  Is this a problem with the website redesign?  I’m using an iPhone 5 running iOS 6.0.2.

    This will save some time.  If you have Downcast loaded and from your smartphone or tablet click on these URLs they will automatically open and subscribe in Downcast.

    Hi, I’ve tried some other podcast apps but it doesn’t seem to work with AAC format. It simply doesn’t play. Will pocket cast play within the app?

    Hello. Have you tried the Downcast app? Or how about the free Podcasts App (purple one) that is preinstalled on your device by Apple?

    Hi there, yes I’ve tried the purple podcast that comes pre installed. What it did was it redirected me to he jw.org website with the audio file.

    I’ve used Overcast – because it’s free. And it does not seem to work. I just want to make sure that Pocket Cast or Downcast definitely works (plays) before I make the purchase. Thanks!

    Ok I’ve checked and Downcast, Pocket Casts, and Castro all work with the Watchtower AAC podcast. None of them show artwork for each article (just the Watchtower icon). But Downcast is the only one of the group that lets you see an article list while playing a magazine, from which you can jump to a specific article.
