    Guys, I need help. I updated my phone (I had to - my battery was draining overnight and usually when it's that fucked up, an update fixes it. I already had TWO days where my alarm didn't go off because the battery was too dead and it was full charged when I went to bed) and the new podcast interface for iphone sucks.

    I lost my books a couple weeks ago and now I can't use this useless podcast mess. Anyone have any good podcast app recommendations? My one need is to be able to have AN EASY TO USE play next/queue feature. Sometimes I change my mind what I want to listen to next and I want to rearrange them, but I want it to automatically go to the next one in my queue without manually playing when my queue is set up fine. I listen while I drive a lot. I don't want to be fiddling with it.

    I can't figure out how to "play next" now. It's a fucking ugly interface, like how they fucked up the music and now THAT is also nearly unusable. Hi, why would I want a gd skip button? I am in the mood for every song in every playlist at every moment in time? FUCK YOU APPLE.

    I hate the podcast app, can't use the iBooks app unless you purchase from apple, hate the music player. I never use facetime, I hate the stupid earbud/charging port bullshit... so I think I might have to switch out of apple entirely.

    So if anyone can suggest something, I'd be super grateful.

    I have an android and I use an app called MaterialPlayer, and it's the most simple audiobook app I could find. There's no rss feed so Isually just add downloaded podcasts there - as it's also not my primary listening device (I still use an old ipod to that, because it's small and also the battery lasts for days, but I agree, iTunes sucks).
    I don't think there's version for iOS. I did however find it here, and maybe there's something there for you :

    The podcast app I’ve used forever is called Podcruncher, but there is one little glitch on it with the search function that they just don’t fix. I love all the organization features so I just manage to live with that one little glitch.

    The one app I’ve heard is really great is called Downcast, but it’s $3. So if you don’t mind spending the money I’d try that one.


    Edited to add: forgot to mention that the podcruncher app does do all the things you want. You can make your own playlist and set up to play the next in queue. Just that one annoying glitch may turn you off.

    Yeah, I can't fiddle with trying to get an android on an apple. Thanks, though.

    Podcruncher is $3 too! Which I totally don't mind paying AFTER I try it out. I just spent a bunch on an iBook replacement (Mapleread was my choice, anyone who is looking to switch. I had weirdly specific needs and it's the only one that did what I wanted it to do).

    I'm thinking of trying Overcast. It's free with ads and a pay-subscription mode. I just want to try something first because I went through a dozen ebook apps till I found one that displayed my books properly. The point of buying apple products is that they just work, right? But when everything has an ugly and un-intuitive and dysfunctional interface, it literally doesn't "just work."

    eta: as I'm resubscribing to all my podcasts, I noticed iTunes unsubscribed me from some again.

    Sorry, couldn’t remember how much podcruncher was since I bought it several years ago.

    Oh no worries. It’s so weird when there’s no free trial version. It might be better than outcast but it gets expensive testing. I don’t mind paying when I know it’s right.
