Loved the old version Finally updated. New UX isn't terrible, but it can be confusing and take more steps to get to where you want to go. Needs some more work.
Download issues App has to be continuously restarted to download anything.
Featute rich podcast and audiobook player Very good. Use it for both podcasts and audio books. Would be even better if it properly utilized the connection bandwidth, i.e. download several feeds in parallel increasing the number of threads until the planned download speed is reached.
Beyond Pod Used this for about 3 years now & not found anything to match it for features & reliability. Fantastic
I'm going elsewhere Long-time paid user. I have really tried to adapt to the new UI. It always seemed to be a mystery how to navigate. Never could get the so-called smart play working (each day, I had to manually add and order the new episodes in the play list). What used to be simple is no longer so. Sorry, but I can't take it anymore.
I like it but... The UI needs work as it isn't very intuitive. I also just wanted to point out to the developers that the Chromecast feature doesn't seem to work.
* New "dark" theme
* BeyondPod now supports "compact" episode cards. This makes it easy to balance between the number of episodes displayed on a single screen and how much information is displayed for each episode.
* Companion Android WEAR application for quick access to your current playlist and SmartPlays directly from your watch.
* Better support for Android 5 Lollipop.
* Bug fixes.
