Transcripts on Apple Podcasts (via) I missed this when it launched back in March: the Apple Podcasts app now features searchable transcripts, including the ability to tap on text and jump to that point in the audio.

Confusingly, you can only tap to navigate using the view of the transcript that comes up when you hit the quote mark icon during playback - if you click the Transcript link from the episode listing page you get a static transcript without the navigation option.

Transcripts are created automatically server-side by Apple, or podcast authors can upload their own edited transcript using Apple Podcasts Connect.
