When are they going to allow user to create playlist on the podcast app so i can listen to podcasts in the order I want?  Does anyone else find this app to be the worst thing ever?

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1.2

    I find this app to be the worst thing ever for sure. It was better when I could just go to my music app and listen to a podcast.

     

    1. For starters, I'll add a podcast to "On-The-Go", which would lead me to think I've downloaded it to my phone, and I still get the pop up asking me to turn on cellular data. Why would I need to use cellular data if the podcast is on my phone?

     

    2. Sometimes I download a podcast, and then a few hours later I go to listen to it, and it's just not there. I need to download it again.

     

    3. Where is a button to get to "On-The-Go"?!??!?!?!?!!?!?! I add it to On-The-Go, but I can't find On-The-Go

     

    4. PUT PODCASTS BACK INTO MUSIC!!!!!!! This app is the worst.

     

    5. Funniest thing is if you google "apple podcast app" you won't see one positive article about this app. Not 1. People hate it. Apple please ditch this as you haven't made life easier for people who love podcasts, you've made it much harder and more frustrating.

    If you don't like Apple's app, use another one. There are lots of really great podcast apps out there. I like Shifty Jelly's Pocket Cast. Downcast and Instacast are often recommended as well.
