The iOS 9 podcasts app is terrible

I love listening to podcasts while commuting since I get to learn something on the way. This is especially great on longer trips.

I have been using the iOS podcasts app so that I add select podcast episodes to “On the go” playlist and then whenever I’m driving somewhere I know that I have a list of podcasts to listen to.

To my big surprise Apple has ruined the Podcasts app by removing the “on the go” playlist. There is in fact no way to create a playlist anymore. You can queue up podcast episodes but that’s about it.

This is a huge fail IMO. Yet again Apple has decided on what should be the best way to do things and I don’t like their way at all. They want you to listen to all recent episodes, but this is not at all how I like to do it.

And I’m not the only one with such opinion
