Play only one Podcast

This might not be new to iOS 7, but I just discovered the feature.

I've been wanting to set up podcasts for my mother in law, who, at 89, can't cope with remembering how to stop play on her iPad. So I wanted a way to start one podcast episode playing and then have the iPad stop.

I found that at the very bottom of the list for the timer, there's the option to stop at the end of the current episode.

The view on iPad is similar, but the timer button is to the left

Sadly, this doesn't work with video podcasts.

You can still use the Clock/Timer app to set the iPad or iPhone to stop playing after a fixed time, but not "at the end of the podcast."
