Sure, other apps like Stitcher Radio provide the functionality that Apple’s Podcast app does (pulling together different progranms into a single feed), but I bit on the Podcast app because I already had my podcast subscriptions set up inside iTunes. The subscriptions themselves synced fine, but I decided to unsubscribe in iTunes and just stream the episodes. Two drawbacks:
- Had to resubscribe to all podcasts inside the app – it didn’t carry over
- Got a nice warning that I was going over 3GB on streaming – time to turn on the WiFi
I also had a full crash where I had to delete, reinstall, and resubscribe all podcasts. Feh.
That said, I’m saving a ton of space by not actually downloading the episodes anymore (LOT of music on my iPhone), and the unplayed podcast list works dandy. Needs some improvement, but overall a keeper.
And yes, I still listen to podcasts like it’s 2009 and stuff.
