Auto-download is not working the way I expect it would. It only seems to auto download podcasts once you visit the app. it might even require you open up the podcast series in question before it starts downloading, but I have not verified that. My iPad sits home all day plugged in and breathing in wifi fumes. I expect all my subscribed podcasts to download during that time. They don't, they wait for me to visit the podcasts app. Um....why? This can't be by design right? Some podcasts are only available for one day. If I don't start this app and trigger the download I miss it. Please tell me this is just a bug and it will be fixed shortly.

iPad (3rd gen) Wi-Fi, iOS 6
