Customer Reviews

I used to make podcast playlists (1 star)
I listen to podcasts daily. When I could play my podcasts in the music app, I could create a playlist of the podcasts I wanted to listen to. I don't see any way to do that in the podcast app, but iOS 6 yanked my podcasts out of the music app, so I'm stuck.

Still not ready for primetime. (1 star)
Why no playlist function? Keep podcasts in the Music app and rename Media this app is a mess

Less flexible (1 star)
I used to create playlists with a daily podcast and a book I was listening to. Now, Apple has separated the functions, making it far less useful. I want my flexible playlists back!
