    Hey,

    I listen to podcasts, a bunch of them, on multiple devices.

    Does ios5 wirelessly sync (through wifi) which podcasts are played, and which I have not yet listened to?

    it works the same as plugin sync...so if you have it set to sync unplayed it will sync unplayed.

    So far

    It has been working as it did before I upgraded to iOS 5. I have iTunes set up to download all new unplayed episodes, and my phone to sync the 10 least recent unplayed. I havent had any issues except for a couple of podcasts that would not drop off my phone once I listened to them. This has happened before (it may be that I had started to listen to them before the update) and I just deleted them manually from my phone. No issues since...

    I am a heavy podcast listener as well. My life got a lot simpler when I went to a dedicated podcast app. Personally I use downcast and it handles it so much better than fussing with iTunes for podcasts. By far one of my favorite apps.

    Is the quality better than stitcher? I like the ease of use with Stitcher, but the sound quality is terrible.
