I'm still finding new stuff in Android's Jelly Bean. I recently moved to Pocket Casts and noticed that Pocket Casts takes advantage of a new Notification feature in Jelly Bean.
Applications can put additional information and even action buttons in the Notification area.
Here's the normal notification from Pocket Casts.
To expand the Pocket Casts notification, drag it down with 2 fingers.
You can resume playing the podcast directly from the Notification screen.
