What's New in Version 2.2
Podcasts 2.2 includes a number of minor performance improvements and adds support for iOS 8.
Buggy as hell
New update had broken it! Now playing is not working, crashing all the time.
Still not stable
Apple don't longer support this. Read the forums, nothing gets fixed.
You don't need this to play podcast, you can use third party app on iPhone. Apple should recommend an alternative for podcast users instead of still providing this unsupported product.
Horrible, buggy and pointless
Useless and broken. Even fails to load podcasts - it's one job! It's bad enough that this is a horribly bad app, but being forced to use it? It does not deserve more than zero stars.
