I have subscribed about 500 Podcasts in the Podcast App on my iPad mini. When I download a Podcastepisode, I always found it in the "Musik"-App and there I can delete it. Now since the newest version of the App "Musik", there are no Downloads of Podcasts. This is terrible. Its a bad solution that I have to delete my Podcastepisodes in the Podcast-App, because I have over 500 subscribed Podcasts !

Is there another App to delete easily the Podcastepisodes?

iPad 2, iOS 6.0.1, I have iPad mini !

    Podcasts are now handled by the "Podcasts" app for iOS in the App Store. If you want to delete an episode, simply swipe from left to right over an episode and tap "delete."


    If you want to download a deleted episode, visit that podcast in the "store," or simply toggle the subscribe switch off, then back on. This will reset your list of available episodes.


    Note: If you delete the iOS Podcasts app, podcasts will once again appear in the Music application. You can't download or subscribe to new episodes without the Podcasts app, however.


    Also note: How the heck have you subscribed to 500 podcasts??

    I'm not understanding what it is you're actually trying to accomplish. Are you saying you're subscribed to 500 individual feeds or there are 500 episodes showing up in one feed?


    If there is one feed with 500 shows in your "unplayed episodes" list, you can tap on a show's settings page and tap "mark all as played," which will remove them from  "unplayed episodes." You also have the option of not subscribing to a show, instead opting to manually download certain episodes.


    Does that answer your question?

    I agree that the Podcasts app is a pos, but the guy told you in an earlier reply how to delete podcasts. To download a particular podcast, just tap the down arrow next to the podcast. As an aside, how do you have time to listen to 500 podcasts? Unless it is your job to do so, no one has that much time.

    I assume when you say Musik that you mean Music. Anyway, it is possible to delete podcasts from within iTunes, even en masse. Just highlight the podcasts that you want to delete, right click (or control click) on one of the highlighted episodes, and choose delete. You will then be given the option to move them to the trash or just remove them from your list.
