No Smart Playlist capability, widget and app don't adapt to landscape mode. I wish more podcast apps had the same smart playlist functionality that BeyondPod has. Unfortunately, it seems that BeyondPod is no longer supported so I'm looking for other podcast apps. Stitcher doesn't seem to have any controls for prioritizing podcasts--they just seem to queue up in the order of publication/download. The app also doesn't rotate and the widget controls are not accessible in landscape mode.

This is my default podcast player of choice and it has a lot of features that I think are good such as the ability to reorder your playlist and download episodes in advance that can be customized per podcast. The one downside and why I give it a three-star rating is it has a history of being quite buggy.

Was Highly recommended. New update is terrible. the widget doesn't even function properly anymore. The Bluetooth in my car doesn't interface the same either. Why? Come on! It wasn't broke, but you had to fix it. Now it's terrible. Update: has gotten a little bit better, but now I can't see or download new episodes of podcast We Hate Movies.
