Podcasts for iPhone and iPad

Christopher Breen | July 4, 2012
Apple’s new Podcasts app is a welcome step to bringing attention to audio and video podcasts that were previously buried in the Music app. But while it has some good things going for it, it’s a step that’s not yet fully realized.

Additionally, subscriptions don’t sync. So, if you’ve subscribed to a podcast on your iPad and later fire up your iPhone, you won’t find that podcast on your phone. If you want it, you have to subscribe to it on that device. Once you do, playback between the two devices will be synced. This lack of subscription syncing seems odd, particularly given that an app like Downcast can do it, using Apple’s own iCloud service to do so.
