Apple And it was that time of the year again - Apple held one of its product announcements. This one focussed on the iPad mostly, and while some will call it a disappointment merely because virtually everything had already been leaked, I'm still in awe over the fact the newly announced iPad has a 2048x1536 display. My mind is blown.

Do you know when the last time I used iTunes with my iPad was? Honestly? 6 months ago, when I upgraded to iOS 5. I've never needed to attach it since then. It backs up to iCloud. I download all content. Music comes from iTunes Match.


Awesome! Now tell me how do you add your podcasts to the iPad without connecting it to another computer, using only the software that came with it from Apple?

Yeah...I thought so. It's crippled.

That also works for iPad. Do you want to disqualify it just because it doesn't come from Apple? There are about 500,000 apps in the app store; if you just counted what came with the tablet, that wouldn't be a very useful device. Hell, I don't think there's anything built into Windows either that will download podcasts.

he just wants to have the same functionality on the stock app (that is supposed to manage your media) as the one in the desktop.

i understand him because it is also one of my pet peeves when i had the ipad(1). so a friend of my introduced me to doggcatcher in android. now my wife is happy with an ipad and i am happy with a transformer 2. ;)

Short answer Downcast.. http://downcastapp.com/

Long answer, I only ever listened to podcasts on my phone, and iPhone you used to just do the "more episode" / "back to music" dance. Then I found Downcast. It absolutely blew my mind. It handles RSS feeds, updates Inteligently, will sync the play found and podcast list between devices via iCloud. It's universal, and it's not expensive. If you are serious about podcasts, take a look at it, or one of the other comparable apps.
