I hated the new look and then I got used to it and now I like it a lot. Play with it a little bit and give it a chance, you may get to like it too. Update: New beyond pod beta version 4.2.19 is awful and full of bugs... so many bugs... Huge problems as a result, I lost everything. Must backup regularly... Lesson learned Full Review
Bob Sterrett Published date: January 17, 2018
Was my favorite until the .19 beta release. They released it with so many bugs you need a hazmat suit to run it and the problems persist almost 2 months later. Had to use adb side loading to downgrade to a working .18 release. I could no longer allow a friend to run this product. Full Review
Jason Piccoli Published date: January 4, 2018
Long time user of this app; the new beta version is unusable and you cannot leave the beta group with the links they have provided. The latest public version (non beta is over a year old) and not suitable for use on newer android versions. Wish I could get my money back for the pro key. Full Review
Eric Kinch Published date: January 8, 2018
The quality of this app has fallen off very recently. There are bugs in the themes, playback speed, Chromecast and auto downloads. The developer has not been very active in squashing the bugs. Full Review
Leszek Ciesielski Published date: January 29, 2018
Was my favourite podcast app for several years, but after some changes in the maintaining team, it just doesn't work any more. The stable version still (after 2 years now!) doesn't support Android Auto, the beta version does not work on Android 8.0 / 8.1. Full Review
monkneys Published date: February 15, 2018
A company bought it, and ruined it three months ago with a broken beta, and have shown no interest in fixing. Absentee developer, find a program that is actually maintained. Full Review
Wayne Weaver Published date: November 27, 2017
Backup and restore is a joke. Changing to a new device is completely not supported without a lot of effort since this programmer had been terrible for a few years now. Full Review
John Bowie Jr Published date: December 21, 2017
For those in the Beta, DO NOT UPDATE TO 4.19. Broken on all versions of android and the developers have gone silent on any fix. Full Review
Chris O'Brien Published date: December 1, 2017
Can't add local files, so I can't play audio books. No update in over a year, so I don't think it's being developed anymore. I'm looking into alternative podcast managers. Full Review
Michael Rothstein Published date: January 30, 2018
This used to be but is no longer my go-to Podcast app. It's good, but the things that bother me are non-issues in other competing apps. I no longer keep this app installed. Full Review
Sam S Published date: December 20, 2017
It used to be really good, but the last update broke most stuff on on 8.1 The forums are full of complaints with no answers from the developers. Full Review
Martin Belcher Published date: December 19, 2017
Best podcast app in my opinion. Had to uninstall beta due to bugs but the production version works well. Full Review

scott conners Published date: January 30, 2017
Was a great working app. Paid for the unlock key and enjoyed it for over a year then switched phones. All other apps needing unlock keys worked fine except this one. Wrote many emails and go no response. They don't care about the users. Podcast addict is free and easier to use with more options. Sad day for beyond lost a customer that always told other how great there all was.also cannot add paid podcast from private site..This was good 6 years ago Full Review
Martin Nordsletten Published date: May 1, 2017
Still a great app, but having used the old layout this new one takes some getting used to. It took me way too long to find where I could edit my smartplay settings. The general settings menu is not in the most logical place. I do like the customizable playback speed, the design is fantastic, the car layout. Still a must have app in my eyes. Full Review
Kris Murray Published date: January 27, 2017
I'm really liking this app. The only gripe I have so far is there is no way to remove the persistent notification without entirely blocking all notifications. Would it be possible to have an option to have the notification visible only when the notification shade I pulled down and not on the status bar. Some other apps can do this. Thanks for the hard work, I'll likely end up on a Pro account with all these features. Full Review
Alexander Ward Published date: December 15, 2016
About 3 years ago I bought BeyondPod because it used to be the best podcast app on the market. This USED to be my go to podcast app, but some changes that were made make it slightly more difficult to navigate. Returning to the main menu is just slightly more difficult than I would like. This also doesn't run as well on the Galaxy S7 Edge on Marshmallow than I'd like. I've switched to another paid app that I love. Full Review
Sam Proctor Published date: March 8, 2017
V4 has got much better using all the time now. V4 is much harder to work out what s going on. I loved v3 paid for it. But if I had started with v4 don't think the app would I have lasted a week on my phone thankfully they let you roll back to v3. Full Review

Glitch - Moto Z Force Whenever I get any notification while I'm listening to a podcast, it mutes in s way that can only be fixed by pausing and then unpausing. But it still played silently all you also have to rewind each time this happens. Since I am driving when I listen to podcasts this is very inconvenient and dangerous. Moto Z Force. Full Review
Tyler W Published date: February 2, 2017
Good, but sometimes acts a bit odd. Fix the navigation so a swipe and a press do the same thing, and let me add to Playlist with a single press, and it will get more. Almost gave 5 stars, before I realized it only feels easy to use out of Stockholm syndrome Full Review
Squirrelly Fursona Published date: June 25, 2017
Longtime paid version user. Still a great podcast app. I'm fine with the newer interface once used it for a while. Currently my only issue is the "Update on Schedule" for my feeds keeps getting turned off and I end up missing episodes that can't be downloaded later. Full Review
Chuck Stazo Published date: April 26, 2017
I really like the app, probably one of the best podcast apps out there for Android. The one complaint that I have is that the button to delete and mark as read is too close to the scroll so if you tap too far right then you end up scrolling halfway down the list. If it wasn't for that I'd give it 5 stars for sure. Please fix that in a future release. Full Review
eddie wormuth Published date: June 21, 2017
Got my money's worth big time. However this app is always getting killed by lollipop. More so than other apps. Update: it's pretty rock solid these days. 2017 update: works with split screen which is great. Even when not in split screen resume position rarely works correctly. Lost a ð for that Full Review
Cloy Tobola Published date: May 6, 2017
The latest version (4.x) is a disaster. There used to be a start screen listing all podcasts grouped by category. Now only newest episodes are listed. Overall, navigation is poor and difficult to use. No longer going to recommend this as I did in the past. Full Review
Peter Published date: November 26, 2016
Finally was able to purchase Pro through the Black Friday sale. Worth the money. If only it had the ability to trim the silence in each podcast like PocketCast, it would be worth it. I noticed that some podcasts were not available through Play Music, which other podcast app does. Some like BBC News and PBS News Hours are a couple that cannot be searched using Play Music, but BeyondPod has it. Listened to this while at work, makes everything go by quickly. Thanks! Full Review
Dan Muller Published date: November 23, 2016
The functionality gets five stars. It's customizable enough that you can tweak it to do exactly what you want. But it's excruciating to navigate. I don't think it could be less intuitive or less consistent if they tried. Fortunately, once you finally get it set up, it's pretty much just hit "Play". So one star for the UI, for an average of three. Full Review
Steve Jessen Published date: March 14, 2017
The auto playlists are really good. But media button bugs are horrendous, often stealing control from other playing apps even if beyond pod isn't running. And the double press settings have never worked. And now adding local folders doesn't work. App is getting buggier and buggier. Full Review
Sean Parent Published date: December 6, 2016
Attractive UI, but this app suffers from multiple bugs that have gone months without being addressed. The final straw for me was an increasing trend of unexplained 'episode failed to download' messages. Another one that I often came across was the 'Manage Feeds' button failing to work if a podcast drawer is open in 'What To Play'. Finally, the free version is limited to updating only one podcast at a time (a feature that is offered for free by Podcast Addict). Full Review
Jason Harland Published date: March 2, 2017
This app after years of reliability now sucks donkey testicles. For some reason this app thinks it's cute to stop playing the podcast I'm listening to when ever I get out of range of any known Wi-Fi network. Mind you this is for podcasts I've already downloaded, and happens even when I disable Wi-Fi on my phone. I'm fed up with this app arbitrarily closing while I'm listening to podcasts. Time to find a new app that doesn't fail at the ONE JOB a podcast app has, which is playing podcasts! Full Review
Wayne Chatham Published date: August 31, 2017
Owned this app for many years and may have to start shopping around for another one. It's been quite sometime since any updates have been made. There appears to be an incompatibility with Android O. My Pixel was just updated last night and I no longer receive track info over Bluetooth to my 2016 BMW 3 Series. Google play and a number of other apps are working just fine. Hopefully there are still updates planned for Beyondpod. I really want to continue using this app. Full Review
Published date: February 1, 2018
I always come back to this app. The GUI can be a little difficult at first, but once you understand it, it's pretty easy. The nice thing about this app is if you use the smart list, you never need to interact with it other than press play. Best podcast app on Android. Full Review
Denny Ho Published date: February 12, 2017
For some reason downloads are very slow on data. All of my other apps are fine, I can stream the video version of a podcast on YouTube before BeyondPod can finish download 110mb. T-Mobile 4g LTE on Nexus 6p Nougat Full Review

Loved this app so much I bought the unlock key. Latest update has lost connection to the podcast directory and treats me as a new user. So angry. Have to access the files through a file manager and can't reconnect SD card. Shoddy! Full Review
Alex Armstrong Published date: February 26, 2017
Very confusing and poorly laid out. Can be easily set to download podcasts and then immediately delete them. I often wake up with a device full of half downloaded podcasts. When they come up in the queue they cannot be played or streamed. Cannot exclude half downloaded episodes from the playlist. This is just rubbish. Actively looking for an alternative. Does not support 2x on Chromecast Full Review
A Google User Published date: December 5, 2016
Awful navigation Is now really different from the old version and very unintuitive. Very frustrating to re learn how to navigate around. The new views and menus are a step backward, let's hope they make it behave more like it used to in the next updates. On the plus side it has so many tweaks and automatic playlists it is just "set and forget" once you have figured out how it all works. Full Review
Will Herrick Published date: August 7, 2017
This needs volume normalization or I will have no choice but to switch apps! I can no longer deal with having to modify Waze navigation volume while driving because one podcast volume is very different from another. It's just not safe. Full Review
Tiago Alcobia Published date: October 24, 2017
Some podcasts no longer sink due to ssl handshake issue and The APP should integrate with the Android lock screen like castbox. It also is slow when unpausing a video after any pause due to call or application change and sometimes it even restarts the video! Full Review
