    Hey guys, I just updated to iOS 8.0.2 and my podcast app crashes every time I start it up. I tried restarting the phone and then tried to delete and reinstall but can't get rid of it. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Interesting development. So playing around with the app, I realized that if I quickly click any tab along the bottom, the app doesn't crash. However, when I go back to the "My Podcasts" tab, it shows a blank white screen. Only the tabs at the bottom are visible ("My Stations", "Featured", etc.) I can download new episodes from the "My Stations" tab and also play the podcasts without a problem as well.

    Does this new information give any ideas as to if its a problem on the apps end or if its a problem I can fix? Thanks again as any input is greatly appreciated!

    Which podcast app? The one that Apple makes and is now built in as a stock app? Or a third party podcast app like Overcast, etc.

    The one that Apple makes. Sorry for not being clear before!

    Well I don't actually use it but I opened mine up and clicked around and it didn't crash. But I also don't have any subscribed podcasts. Unfortunately you can't just delete it because as of iOS 8 it is a stock app.

    I would suggest considering purchasing Downcast. I gladly paid for it. It's fantastic and does everything I want it to, which is more than the stock app does (for me). It's really a good purchase.

    Still having this problem after the iOS 8.1 update. I can download and listen from the "my stations" tab at the bottom of the app, but when I click the "my podcasts" tab I either get a blank screen and it crashes, or it just hangs at the blank screen. More annoying then anything. Anyone have an idea on what the problem may be?
