    Or just me?

    Podcast app crashes every time for me on launch with Beta 3.

    (Apologies for the typo in the thread title - can't edit thread titles here).

    I know iIOS6 is beta; that's why my post included the words "Beta 3". My question wasn't "what is the development status of iOS6?"

    My question was whether the app is crashing on launch currently for people on Beta 3, or if it's just me.

    It is and it's almost the same performance on my misses iOS 5.1 with iPhone 4. The app need reworking. The beta I guess has more bugs with it.

    Podcast app died when it launched.

    seriously, is anyone else surprised that Apple released an unfinished app and still hasn't updated it to work right? I really want to use it but every time I do it crashes or it's lack of features reminds me why I bought downcast.

    I found it unusable. Luckily if you delete the app, all your podcasts return to the music app. I will see how well the final release work or I will have to buy Downcaster.

    Is the Podcast app suppose to sync with iTunes (Played/Unplayed)?

    It seems to be working for me at the moment, I've listen to about 24 hours of it, :) not sure that really helps you... I've used it to stream, and download....

    I am just wondering if the size of my podcast library have anything to do with my problems. How big is your library?

    I install iOS 6 as a new device. So I started with nothing in my Library, and now have downloaded a number of Podiobooks into it. I downloaded Hevanfield after the beta 3 update. ( All 28 episodes of it as one long book. ) 1.4 GB is what it says I'm using at the moment...

    Any other time, it just freezes or crashes :mad:

    I haven't seen any crashes with the podcasts app on either my iPhone or iPad running Beta 3. It does seem to be a bit sluggish on the OS, but I currently don't have an iOS device running iOS 5 to compare it to.

    Podcasts app is terrible, regardless of the version of iOS.

    They do - but you can't download new podcasts. The "download" button doesn't do anything.

    I guess it doesn't matter, since this is a beta. But podcast makers must be suffering a small decline - there's no working way to get podcasts on iOS6 at present.

    Just because you can't download, doesn't mean no one can download,

    You can still download by iTunes the old way. Is the podcast app gone from the App Store? Couldn't find it in the Canadian App Store. I will try the American. Edit. Still in the American store.

    I just downloaded it and installed it tonight, on my iPhone. It is still there on the American Store.

    There's two "working ways" to get podcasts on iOS 6 that I'm aware of. Downloading the podcasts via the iOS app (which has worked for me), or syncing them to the device via iTunes (which also works for me). I'm not sure why you are having such an issue downloading them on your device(s), but I have not seen the issue you described.

    I'm happy for you! I haven't downloaded them via iTunes - as I said, it doesn't really matter (I have devices still on iOS5 for actual daily use). I was just curious whether the problem was a universal one on Beta 3.
