    I don't know if this is better in the Icon forum or in the Windows Phone 8.1 forum, but I am posting it in Icon forum for now because I don't know if it is an Icon specific issue. I just recently started using the podcast app that is built into the phone. I love it and it is super simple to use. But I have found that sometimes when I listen to a podcast that takes a while to listen to- maybe several trips in the car, multiple phone calls in between, etc.- that when the episode ends, the only way I can get any response from the app for changing podcasts or episodes is to completely restart my phone. I don't wan to have to do this on a daily or semi-daily basis. Has anyone else run into this on the Icon or other phones, and is there a solution?

    For reference, I am generally listing with a wire plugged in to headphone jack, but occasionally also listening via bluetooth headset.

    I use the Podcast app regularly and never had this problem. Maybe be you need to do an uninstall and reinstall.

    Thanks Steve. Not sure why I never thought to try that. Will see if it makes a difference.

    Um, well, that's inconvenient. So a factory reset?

    Yes, I had similar troubles w/ the podcast app getting stuck altogether or delaying while showing "updating podcasts." My experiences/observations:
    - it might have been related to moving in/out of the wifi at my house
    - it seemed to impact streamed podcast episodes more than downloaded ones.
    - I have a lot of podcasts (20 or so), so the updating was most likely the cause.
    - I keep a large music library, so my Icon generally has less than 1 gig free space which can just make things not work as they should.

    So, my guess is that for me it was a storage/wifi issue. My solution was to turn off auto updates on podcasts I don't listen to very often and to delete (sad face here) some music that I don't listen to much. (I would love another 30 gig on this phone!!!), and I haven't been troubled by this ever since.

    Hope it's stopped acting up on you. If not, maybe this will help.
