There is a podcast app on iOS but I prefer the features of Downcast. It makes keeping up with podcast subscriptions easy, and I especially like the way I can turn listening speed up a notch to get the full benefit of podcasts in less time.
I like to listen to streaming radio stations from around the world, and this app is my favorite way to do so.
It can find radio stations by location or genre and lets me save them as presets just like a real radio.
Free version available but Pro is $0.99
The iPad has Facetime and while it is a nice video chatting app many of my colleagues use Skype.
The Skype app is a great mobile chatting solution on the iPad mini and I use it a lot.
