I updated my iPad to IOS 9 when it came out, and naturally started to play around with all the apps I usually use, to see what's changed and if they're still as good to use.
I was playing with the Podcasts app, and I found quite a strange issue. In previous versions of IOS, when a podcast needed attention, because it hasn't been viewed for a long time, therefore stopped downloading episodes, all you had to do was double tap on a podcast and tap something to make the episodes download again. However, in this new podcasts app, when the podcast needs attention, VoiceOver no longer says needs attention, instead it says something like: "!, Applevis Podcast" Putting red exclamation mark in front of the podcast name, which for a VoiceOver user isn't very clear. However, when I double tap on a podcast with this mark on it, there's nothing to say that the episodes aren't downloading because the podcast hasn't been viewed recently, and although the podcast has been viewed, the needs attention indicator does not disappear, and I noticed that episodes aren't downloading.
Can anyone help with this? Has anyone else experienced issues with Podcasts since the update?
I really don't want to switch to Downcast, considering it's paid for, when I have an app that worked fine until the update, so I'd be grateful for any suggestions of how to fix it or of something that I might be missing.
