    1. Is it possible to change the skip time buttons (by default they are set at 15 seconds in 8.4, I don't see any place to make this longer) - also anyone on iOS 9 who can provide insight as to whether this is changeable in the beta?

    2. In my car when I hit the forward button on my Bluetooth receiver it skips to the next podcast, instead of using the seconds skip, is it possible to change this somehow, every other podcast app I have skips forward in time, not to the next podcast (again, this is not changeable in 8.4 is there anyone on iOS 9 that can comment on whether this is fixed/optional in iOS 9)


    Thanks!

    The default podcast app continues to be hot garbage.

    There are definitely still some issues with the Podcast app, but I have to say it's improved immensely over the years. When it was first released, this app was unusable.

    There's a new UI (might be in iOS 8.4 I don't know was only on 8.4 for a couple of days) other than that the only change I've found is there is no sleep timer any more.:mad: I have reported this as a bug.

    I am seeing a bug where each podcast causes 5-6 notifications each so when a couple are posted i end up with lil 10-12 notifications. its worlds better than beta 2 though...

    Actually, tap the blank space above the "home" button on your phone. Between the share button and ... Button. It's there, but for some reason it's not there lol

    the ios8 podcast app was decent. the 9 is unusable. It constantly skips and hangs if I decent I want to do anything else on my phone like open another app. Also playing a podcast doesn't take you to the podcast's player - it puts the player at the bottom where you have to tap to open it after it's already playing. I mean what the hell?

    Yay my sleep timer! Thanks! I spent a good 5 minutes looking all over for it, as it sat there mocking me with its invisibleness lol.
