iCloud and Podcast Subscriptions
I've been playing around with iCloud for a few days and what I've decided to do is iCloud backup as opposed to PC based iTunes backup. But I see one problem with this. What about subscribed podcasts? How do I get new podcasts automatically as they become available? If I have to sync with PC iTunes still for that it kind of defeats the purpose (for me) of iCloud backup.

Podcast subscriptions-big missing piece
I also agree. I am ready to ditch the computer completely and use iCloud but am surprised they didn't think of this. I am a big podcast fan, and currently use the app "Play, Look Listen" on my iphone & ipad because I can start listening on one, and pick up where I left off on the other. But, it does not work for paid subscriptions. Being a big fan of Kim Komando, I have to do an itunes sync to get her podcast. I also like the built in player more visually-and would be so pleased to see them resolve this issue or if someone could find a workaround (not including a jailbreak option) I would love to hear it!

I just stopped using it because it won't sync subscriptions between my iPhone and iPad. And when I try
to subscribe to a certain podcast, the stupid subscribe button only shows up when it feels like.
I just stick with DownCast which uses iCloud to sync between both of my devices and works flawlessly.
