Is anyone else having some terrible trouble with the podcast function of iTunes? Whenever I try to refresh my podcasts/download, iTunes hangs and has to be force quit. Is this just me or are other people experiencing this?

Yup!  It seems iTunes has decided it hates podcasts, at least on my iPhone.  I made a post about it some months back:

Are you using iTunes 11.3?  I think they came out with an update like last night and that solved some of the problems I've been having. Also, are you synching to a device that runs apps (iPhone or iPod touch) or a dedicated iPod?

I've just given up in iTunes / Podcasts.app for podcasts on OS X / iOS.

I've switched to Downcast (http://www.downcastapp.com/). It's a few quid, but works much, much more reliably in my experience.

Windup, I'm primarily using my iPod (nano), so iTunes being buggy with podcasts is unfortunate. (What, am I going to go back to listening to music?)

On my iPhone, the podcast app seems to be working, so I might try to migrate my listening to that; or possibly try some other OS app like Downcast if it can sync with an old-school iPod.

Still, this problem has only cropped up in the last few weeks--around the time I updated iTunes (which is up to date)--so I'm hoping that Apple might fix it.

The forum looks different today and I cant access it with Tap-a-Talk on my iPhone. No problem accessing other forums with Tap a Talk - just Kahr. Anybody else having trouble?
