Why can we still not subscribe to podcasts on the iPhone?

    So, since Apple went computer free with iOS5, why has a subscription model not been implemented for podcasts on the iphone? It should check regularly and download new episodes of the casts you listen to. Without a PC/Mac, it would be impossible to ever subscribe at this point.

    Seems like a feature that is long, long overdue. Can't believe it hasn't happened yet - so much that I feel like I'm doing it wrong. I mean, it has to be there, right? It's logical.

    I think you're right. I have yet to see any kind of subscription for podcasts in iOS 5. Seems odd to me too. I guess if you're "PC Free", you need to check for new podcasts either daily or weekly.

    They're holding it back to be the "One More Thing" at next year's keynote.

    Get downcast, you will thank me later. I was beyond frustrated with how iTunes handled podcasts and bought downcast and have been happy ever since. It's well worth the money.
