In the comments of “How I listen to podcasts” I wrote that I was sure that my quest for the right solution is still not over. Well, after experimenting with a hybrid RSSPlayer, iTunes and Music App workflow for over three weeks I just moved back last night to RSSPlayer only.
RSSPlayer rocks. Not able to multitask is the only problem of using RSSPlayer but it is nothing compared to the huge workflow of downloading the files the native or the hybrid way. Downloading directly is also saving a lot of time in the difference between RSS- publication and iTunes-publication of a file. I can really recommend buying RSSPlayer in the App Store.
Notice: this post applies to listening to podcasts, without the use of iTunes on a computer, directly on an iPhone or iPod Touch.
