This the fully re-built MyPOD it's currently in Beta, so we are still ironing out some kinks (they are coming out by the day) ...
Note: V1 is still available in another slot - see other apps. I am sorry for interrupting your life but change has to occur - V2 is better once you know it ... hands down.
Note: Please uninstall the beta MyPOD app (purple icon) if you install this one as well. You should only use this app or the beta app but not both.
TIPS: Check settings > storage if downloads don't appear to work and allocate space.
Don't complain here - it's useless! - email me bugs at my-pod.org - I am always happy to help.
