MyPOD is full-featured and very powerful podcast app for the power-user. It can take a bit of time to learn (there is extensive help available) but with a bit of config it will download and keep you up to date with all your fave audio or video podcasts ... no syncing with desktops or other servers.
We are working heavily now on MyPOD V2 and its coming here soon you can check out the beta in the other apps section below - see other apps - below
Now with unlimited feeds for free!! (well, 1000 max.) See below for permission usage ...
If you have a particular problem you want help with, then SEND ME AN EMAIL (use email link in settings or on the app page) - I can't really help you if you just leave a comment as I can't get back to you ...
It is quite popular with podcast junkies. If you like it please take the time to leave a comment ... it *really* is appreciated.
People seem to love it or hate it ... If you have problems, then get in touch via the feedback links in the settings page or below - I am always eager to help. the UI feedback is not great as you can see from the comments - but the people who get it, like it - so it might be worth your time. But if you are a UI snob then this app is most likely not for you. Some people just want simple apps with a few options - this is not that app.
