I really hate the newest version of the Podcast App. In the past, I've synced my Podcasts with iTunes and life was good. I delete a podcast and I NEVER had to see it again. I told my iPhone I wanted to see the last 10 podcasts that I downloaded and it kept 10 episodes on my phone. I opened my itunes, I chose the podcast I wanted to listen to, it showed me a list of 10 episodes, I listened to one, I'd delete it, and sync again. Life was so good.


WHY DOES THE NEW APP NOW SHOW ME EVERY BLOODY EPISODE. If I've deleted it in iTunes, it was an indication to my iPhone I didn't want to listen to it anymore and it could just go away. If I wanted to download more episodes I had that option but it didn't clutter my screen with every bloody episode ever. I didn't need to manually delete items from my list. I never ran the risk of deleting something I hadn't listened to because only what I hadn't listened to was listed. That was before the worst update to an Apple product since iTunes 11.


Life was so good back then. I want to go back. Can anyone free me of the tyrany of the Podcast App and listen to my podcast on iTunes. Or, at the very least, make the Podcast App behave the way it used to. It's sad to say that the latest update has taken the joy away from listening to Podcasts on my iPhone but it really has.
