    I have an iPhone 5. Recently I ended up belatedly upgrading to iOS9. I'm really unhappy with the change in the Podcasts app -- "On-The-Go" worked fine for me, and "Up Next" is more cumbersome.

    So I'm on the lookout for a podcast app that works for me like Podcasts previously did. The most important thing to me is that I want to be able to manually populate playlists. There are several podcasts I listen to on which I am gradually catching up, having started them long after they began publishing. I tried Overcast, but I couldn't find any way to add anything other than the most recent episode to a playlist. I really only one ONE playlist that I can add ANY episode of a podcast series to.

    Is this something that Overcast can do, and I'm just missing it? Do you know of another app that will do this?

    Thanks

    Here is a lit of podcast apps for the iPhone from The Verge: The Best Podcast App for the iPhone.

    I have only ever used Podcasts n the iPhone/iPad and the Podcast section in iTunes, so I can't recommend any of those listed over the others.
