    I used to be able to choose a podcast and just play it (stream it) without downloading it. And I could pause it, and start where I left off

    I must have updated, because now the interface is a little different and when I stream the podcast it starts me at the beginning every time. If I want to be able to pause and start and stop, I have to download it.

    What the heck?

    Did something change in a recent update?

    It wasn't an update - I haven't updated my phone in many months. It was a change on the Apple hardware side. I'm livid.

    I listen to podcasts for at least 7 hours a day at work. This requires me to pause a lot. Now you can't even unlock and open a text message that you got without it starting over.

    This is absolutely absurd change and defeats the purpose of streaming podcasts. And 'just download it' doesn't work for me, I do not have wifi at work and I'm not spending an hour a night before bed picking out all of podcasts I want to hear tomorrow and downloading them.

    I'm beyond upset at this change.
