AS the title says, how do I create a playlist with the new podcast app?


iPod touch (4th generation)

    I have asked the hosts to relocate your post to the Podcasts for iOS community because I believe you are more likely to get an answer there.

    Thanks, from what I've read, you can't. If this is true, it is a stunningly dumb move by apple.

    Hopefully, someone here can put your mind at ease. I'm not confident though. Check out this post I've just found (in the Podcasts for iOS community) https://discussions.apple.com/message/19643117#19643117  which I've linked at the point where the post by user derrific who suggests that if the Podcasts App is deleted, you automatically get back the Podcasts in the Music App function. (I cannot check this for myself, so be wary ...). It's a very long thread, but it may enlighten you.

     

    At least two posts in that thread have suggested using the Apple Feedback to let Apple know about this. Apple don't (as a rule) read these discussions, but they do listen to the Feedback at  http://www.apple.com/feedback/ - although you will notice that there is no specific option yet for the Podcast App under the iOS Apps heading. If feedback is positive enough (such as give us Playlist functionality in the Podcast App) it may have the desired effect.

     

     

    I'm still using iOS 4.2.1, so cannot use the Podcast App, but from what I've read, I'm dreading the day I can no longer use the Podcasts section of the Music App, because the bad reviews do appear to be justified. I currently use Playlists to play only the Podcast episodes I want, at a given time, so I agree with you that if you cannot create a Playlist within the App, it is, as you say, a stunningly dumb move.

    As "The Fiend" suggests, delete the podcasts app, close down the music app on your phone, reboot your phone and it should go back to the music app playing your podcasts and playlists as before. You may need to do this a couple of times to get it working, but persevere.....

    Thank you to all, restarted and syched iPhone twice and this works.  The new podcast app was a hassle.

    You can't create a playlist in the podcasts app, but you can create a playlist of podcasts in iTunes and sync it to your device. The podcasts are all there, but Music won't let you see them if you have the podcast app. But once that playlist is on your device, you can use voice commands (on the iPhone 4, and presumably Siri on the 4s and 5) to get Music to play your playlist of podcasts.
