iOS 5

We haven't been able to prove this ourselves yet, but we recently received several tips from regular podcast listeners, all on iOS 5 beta 3, who say they began listening to one of our shows using the Music (formerly iPod) app on iPhone and then went to continue listening later on their iPad, only to find it automagically began playing right where they left it.

We're going to run a bunch of tests as soon as we can. [iCloud](/tag/icloud] already does this for iBooks, so if Apple is rolling it out across all media, we'll finally be able to scratch another of our outstanding wants off the list.

(If you've experimented with this at all, let us know the results.)
