    Delete it from iTunes and sync the phone - same goes for all your media.

    I suppose it does really. I suppose I'm so used to an iPod before this that it doesn't seem at all strange. It feels like home to me.

    to delete played podcast iPhone

    i had the same prob.

    i wanted the podcast to self remove once i'd played and resynced.

    change the sync FROM 'unplayed' TO 'new' it doesn't make grammatical sense in my mind, but it will sort out the prob.

    regards,

    I guess my question is, unless you take a CRAP ton of photos what does it matter if you delete the podcasts right there or not. I mean you can't use the phone as a thumb drive anyway and you can't download anything into the media section anyways. If you want them to auto-delete after viewing/listening follow brucebrendon's advice otherwise I'd like to know why it matters :)

    iPhone DiscMode (Mac and req's jailbrake)

    well if you want it mountable you could try:

    it's not 100% ideal and i'm not jailbraking myself, i'll wait.
    but at least i know the opt is there should i feel the urge.

    apple maybe a bit extra cautious about allowing files onto the iPhone incase it opens it up to wide for 'other' stuff to get in and/or out...

    You can delete podcasts at least the video type by a short right to left swipe - just like deleting email. I have 1.1.3 and just recently discovered this.

    You can do movies too. I had no idea of this feature. Good find.

    Podcasts on iphone but not in iTunes

    I have a few podcasts on my iPhone that are NOT in my iTunes. Where are podcasts stored on the iPhone so I can manually delete them tru Fugu or similar?

    You can slide your finger across the podcast like you would for an email (left to right) and it will allow you to delete it on the iphone.

    i deleted them by swiping my finger, but when i connect to itunes it still shows my phone as having no space because of video files. i don’t have any videos/podcasts on my phone now. i deleted them all, but no space was freed up. what’s going on?

    I am new here and to iphone.

    I must say, what a dumb interface that does not allow dynamic updating via either the computer or the iphone.

    apple screwed up this part wholesale.

    I cannot understand why we have to use third party software to control what we want when apple should give this functionality in the first place.

    Where is the DELETE Function for these apps?

    Get your act together apple.

    What? Maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but you can and do update via the phone and iTunes...

    What I mean is that there should be an obvious delete button or some such for each page where a file is added to the iPHONE.

    Some contrived way of deleting things by updating/syncing is lame. I have spent years using mac products and this one is by far the worst software design in apples history IMO.

    When you have DL'd podcasts, music files etc., there should be a "normal" means of deleting things directly from the iphone. I mean, what if I never hook it to a computer.

    Anyhow, I like the phone well enough in other respects, just seems to be a major oversight for that bit.

    Well, to each his own. I happen to disagree with you, but... eh. Welcome to EiC.
