Dear @tim_cook and @satya_nadella: just wanted to let you know how much of a turn-off it is towards your companies’ reputation, when you change application and/or system interfaces for the sake of someone’s un-bright idea. This time my ire is with the iOS podcast app. I used to have a hierarchical view of my podcasts and could then drill in to each branch to see individual podcasts by date and status. iOS 9 changed that. I can now see the latest podcast of each branch and their status or the top level podcast branches but not the individual episodes, unless I stand on my head and whisper incantations.
But, I’m sure this was voted on by a client focus group, like the one we, complainers are in.
Ladies and gentlemen wake up. It is okay to add features, and change interfaces; but do not presume to take functionality or views away.
