Perfect podcast app for me I went through many Android podcast apps before I found BeyondPod. What I needed was an app that downloaded reliably every night and let me customize the order podcasts played without having to adjust the order everyday or while listening. The playlist feature is perfect. I can prioritize a few podcasts that will always play first, no matter how old the lower priority podcasts are. Now I can simply start playing when I leave for work and know the podcasts I want that day will be played first without fail.
Is the app up to date? All in all it's a good app, but has a downside to it: there is no auto synchronization. This can cause inconvenience for those of us who have more than one device which is not uncommon nowadays. Also, I would love to see the 'skip intro' option. I have the paid version of the app and there is no 'skip intro', why? And it would be very useful to search in iTunes from the app. I love this app and I want to stay with it, but if there is no further development people will switch over to alternatives.
PLEASE LISTRN TO YOUR CUSTOME4S As a loyal customer, I came to download this app. I have had it in every phone I ever bought with no probs. Now it has issues. Please hire, fire or do whatever is necessary to retain customers because as your usability, credibility & like-ability goes, then so will we. Gave you five stars for "loved it" past tense. I'll give until my patience runs out before I permanently switch.
I wish I could get the full experience with this, but because of limitations with my phone, I can't listen while doing anything else. The app is solid and reliable. The background sync between devices seems to leave something to be desired though. I always have to clean up my tablet whenever I need to switch over because it won't delete on the secondary device. I also have a hard time adding feeds because everything is automatically marked as unread, so I have a hard time when re-installing the app and re-adding all of my feeds.
Please fix - Episodes stopping mid-play Updated review: Still got the same issues. I'm over it. I'll be finding a different podcast app. Pretty good app aside from the fact that episodes stop suddenly mid-play, sometimes multiple times an episode. This means reloading and fast-forwarding every time. Beyondpod is my preferred podcast app but if this doesn't change I'll have to explore other options
Almost great This app is a touch clunky to use when setting up the scheduler. You have to know wherever to swipe right, left, up or down to get the screen you want. It would be nice if there was just a single menu. The Bluetooth doesn't work very well in my car, it keeps cutting out. Other phones and apps don't have that problem with that stereo. The scheduler works great and I always have the newest podcasts, which is why I still use this app. I also really like the playback speed adjustment option.
* Better support for some premium (paid) feeds.
* A few small changes for Android Auto to simplify media navigation
* Bug fixes
