25. Podcasting with iPad

iPads started appearing in the iTunes U Podcast Download statistics in the figures for the week ending 16th May (so presumably these were US bought models). There was just shy of 1200 Oxford podcasts downloaded to iPads directly in that one week!

In context, for the same week:

  • iPad downloads ~1200
  • iPod downloads ~5000
  • iPhone downloads ~14000
  • Macintosh downloads ~30000
  • Windows downloads ~285000

A quick analysis suggests that iPad downloads have affected the number of items downloaded by iphones and ipods negatively by 2000 downloads, with no noted difference to those using desktop clients.

For those keeping score, around five million podcasts have been downloaded since the launch of Oxford on iTunes U.
