Oh how I agree. Most agrivating thing in the world. Must be an employee getting even with apple. Don't see how anyone who uses this program could have let it slip through. Doesn't anyone at apple actually buy and iphone? Sort of like when Ford president looked out the window and he only saw toyoto cars in the employee parking lot. Simply can't believe this.
Otherwise one other small complaint. The backgrounds are too white and hurt my eyes. How about a softer text background color please.
I have the same problem.
In the past I have downloaded new podcasts, synced to my iPod Classic, listened in the car, and resync when I get home.
Then delete the podcasts that I've listened to.
On occasion I will look through my unlistened podcasts from iTunes, and I agree with you. It really ***** that I have to go through multiple years' worth of podcasts that I've already listed to and deleted; just because their available in the cloud.
