Podcasts 1.2 is the one Apple should have shipped

Chris Breen reviews the update.

I really like it, but there are still some minor problems.

  • I want to sort the play order of my playlists (err, excuse me, custom stations) to go from oldest to most recent, not most recent to oldest. There’s no option to do that.
  • I want to sort “My Podcasts” alphabetically. Looks like you can only sort them manually.
  • Breen writes that the share button links to the episode. It doesn’t. It still just links to the podcast feed.
  • I wish you could easily see show notes from the Now Playing view.

This update feels heavily influenced by Downcast.
