Reviews From google play store

Hangs white sceen

Had this app for 5 years. Love that you can schedule downloads. It does pause randomly and constantly is running in the background even after i shut it down.... very frustrating. Could be tweaked and would be 5 stars.

If you have problems with playback stopping, make sure that BeyondPod is not on the list of apps that can be put to sleep when running in the background. Usually found under battery settings.

Is this app supported anymore? It has shutdown issues, Bluetooth is glitchy and it doesn't support new Chromecast standards. It seems what used to be a great app has been abandoned. If the latest released is causing so many problems why not go back to the previous version until you figure it out? Or has this app truly been abandoned?

Nice app but chromecast does not work, blank screen on my chromecast and audio keeps playing on my phone.

I've been a pro user for years (4+), and made sure all my friends were too. Now I just give feedback to other podcasting tools to adopt some of BPs features. The devs have abandoned this app. We've had no updates in the beta program or the main app for effectively a year. The random pausing issue has been there for a long time and the casting issue is just the cherry on top of all the other issues. Had a great run, but can no longer be my podcast app. I hope someday it may return to glory.


So much issue with the app recently. The sound is blurred. Tried to uninstall and reinstall 1 year ago but problem remaining. Very unpleasant.

Once was great. Now it's an error filled mess with no dev going on. Avoid.

worked fine for years until it constantly started pausing, had to uninstall and find another app due to lack of solution

Just an update to an issue of podcast stopped playing while listening. After an uninstalling and reinstalling, the app has been working properly again. No more "stop playing" issues. Galaxy S10+

I also started to get frequent pause issue, so annoying

Been using this app for years. I've tried many others but nothing compares to BeyondPod. The interface can be a bit confusing to new users but the options and smart list are what make this app far superior to anything else I've tried.

Used to be five stars and now it doesn't work! Disconnects on Bluetooth NON-STOP

Do not use . Updated and lost all my feeds. Had back up but app can't find anymore .sucks.

Add in Galaxy Store.

Many podcasts fail to download without trying multiple times. Now it randomly pauses

Good stuff. Excellent staff behind the app itself

Have used the paid version for years. But now chromecast just won't work anymore. Has the developer stopped updating this app?

No good anymore, barely plays more than 10 seconds before pausing. I have spent thousands of hours listening to podcasts through this app so I guess I got my money's worth. Just a shame to loose my podcast history now that I have to switch.

This app was good years ago but has become buggy and doesn't seem to get updated often.most recent problem I updated to Android 10 and now every time I get in the car I have to disable/enable Bluetooth to get it to play through the speakers. There are better options out there. Look for something else.

I paid for this app years ago and it was the best app I've ever bought. Clean, easy to navigate and reliable. UPDATE 10/1/2019. Having a major issue where the audio is pausing every minute or so, requiring pressing play manually

Randomly skips to the end of current playing podcast.

After many years with BP it's time to go. latest update doesn't allow casting to Google devices - a major flaw. clearly this is affecting many people but the developers haven't sorted it out after many months. this was a great app, and i paid to go pro, but this latest issue is too much to bear.

9.14.19: Ugh, it's been a year. And try as I might there is no comparable option for the super handy SmartPlay. Please update your app! 1.18.19: Been a paid user for years, this has been an amazing podcatcher, but the amount of bugs the past 6+ months has been too great for me to recommend this app. Will upgrade my score when the programmers fix the insane amount of issues that make the app almost unusable. Until then I'll be downgrading to version 4.2.18 which seems to be the last stable build.

Bugs bugs bugs this app hasn't been updated in a year. The dev seems to have abandon it, don't buy

update: I'm using a two year old version just so I don't have to switch to another app. The current version and developer are useless. The update was quite ambitious and confusing, it took me quite a bit of effort to get my head around the changes and I still think some things are quirky, with a few UX mistakes, but overall the feature set and customization level are huge and welcome (aside from the rather obscure backup feature) and it does beautifully once setup exactly as needed.

Has been an excellent app. Until the last update I have had no issues with it. Recently though it will only play continuously while the app is the active program, it will stop playback after 30 seconds if running in the background as I'm using a different app. Annoying, hope this gets fixed on the next update. Otherwise have been a happy user for several years, this has been my only issue.

It's been nearly a year since the last update and there are know significant issues with podcasts pausing frequently during payback on Bluetooth speakers and it's been an issue apparently since 2018 with no fixes. It seems apparent that the developers have stopped supporting this app and I'm now going to switch to another app and uninstall this one.

Notification is never there to pause or resume. It just disappeared first day and can never get it back.

Causing problems with Android, it doesn't seem to be maintained anymore. Uninstalling.

Update: after the Android 10 update, this app no longer casts properly. It says it's connected but still plays audio on the phone. It's been almost a year since the last update so I think the devs have stopped supporting it. Since the October 2018 update the app has tons of issues. Mainly it force closes very often and times out when loading. This was a 5 star app and I paided for the unlock years ago. Now it is worthless. I had these bugs on a Samsung Galaxy S8 and now on a Pixel 2 XL.

Was a good podcast player but development got stuck.

Pauses over Bluetooth every couple of seconds. This is unacceptable.

So sad that this app has been abandoned have been living with these bugs for a year now. New users: find another app.

I've had this app for over two years now, paid for the full version too and generally I like the interface a lot. But it pauses every few minutes when playing over bluetooth. I contacted support and all they said was this is a known issue. That was six months ago and it's only getting worse, so I give up on this app. Don't recommend if you use bluetooth.

I've used this for years but today I am uninstalling it. It is just not keeping up to date with new podcasts, and recommends feeds that have not been updated for many years. Sorry beyondpod....need to keep relevant

I used to love this app, paid for the upgrade years ago and now I'm pretty sick of it pausing for no apparent reason. This is the only app that does this. I checked my settings, I'm allowing it too use background and I turned off the sleep setting and it continues to pause randomly. Until this is fixed I'm uninstalling it and downloading another podcast app.

Nice and intuitive interface. However, through different phones I have owned, the app has what seems to be a memory bug. As I open the app from the notification widget, the app goes all white and unresponsive while the notification switches to just display 'loading feed...'

No update in almost a year...

Edit: It looks like the devs have abandoned this app. The bugs are cropping up like others are reporting. Bluetooth randomly stops, sometimes when you pause it over Bluetooth it won't start again unless you open the app again, seems to get stuck "downloading" when it's clearly not downloading anything, I get BeyondPod crash messages from Android everyday. It's a shame 'cause I've used the app daily for the last 7 years or so and it used to be great. It's time to find something else now :(

I used the paid app for years during my commute 2-3 hours a day. It has been the standard bearer for podcast apps, but in late 2018, an android update caused the app to start behaving differently: no lock screen widget, pause via Bluetooth but not unpause, crashes. Today I found the cure for all of the issues: long press the icon, click App Info, click Notifications, enable Allow Notifications. The app once again has a lock screen widget and working via Bluetooth. Is working the way it used to!

This was a 5 star app. The best podcast player that I no longer use. I liked this app so much that it is one of the few apps I have actually paid for the pro version. Then something happened and the updates stopped coming. Then the issues started to add up. When you look on the Forum you can see that they say it is being worked on but can not give a release date. Well I waited but I had to say goodby. I switched over to Podcast Republic.

I love how you can listen to podcasts in different ways, either catch-up or latest and you can put together a playlist so you can build your own custom Radio station from pod casts you want. So you can binge or mix it up. Great controls for skipping ads, or replaying something you missed.

Great app up until a few weeks ago. Now our pauses itself every 2 minutes when the screen isn't on. Giving up on this app

Works great for podcasts. But constantly gets stuck in the background with "Loading feeds..." and won't stay closed out.

Long time, paid up user. Frequently hangs/crashes.

I purchased this app years ago and have been very happy with it until the past year or so. The app now seems to be bug ridden and locks up or doesn't work most of the time, which makes it mostly unusable. I would recommend looking for an alternative app at this time.

Sync server not reachable for over a year and pauses itself constantly at random. Seems to happen more over Bluetooth.

Typically a great podcast app, but it seems now that it just automatically pauses the podcast NUMEROUS times while listening. I've researched the issue and it seems to have been a known issue since 2018, but I've never so much as had an update pop up from the app. Kind of feels like the devs have stopped maintaining the app. I've used the app for so long that i don't really want to remake all my playlists, but I'm so frustrated with having to hit "play" every 10 seconds.

I have the full paid version, and there are some good things about this app, but there are also bad things. It is good at organizing podcasts and setting up playlists of what to play, and play next. That is good. However, no matter how I change the settings, the play buttons on my various headphones/speakers/car stereos, don't work. I can pause it but I cannot restart it. Also randomly it will pause on it's own, and again I have to unlock my phone and hit play to restart it. Also, there is a Chromecast function that simply does not work. I have tried it several times and audio fails to play, regardless of settings.

I used to love this app. Sadly it doesn't look like it's been actively developed for almost a year. The cast function no longer work and it randomly pauses. This has something to do with it's focus/notification status. I really wish they would bring this back. Nobody else does the Smart Playlists which have become an important part of how I listen to podcasts.

Used to be great but now pauses all the time over Bluetooth. Massively frustrating

This app has been abandoned. Recommend finding another podcast manager.

Pauses every few minutes when connected to bluetooth.

What happened to casting? One of the updates stopped the ability to cast to Chromecast/Chromecast audio. App connects, but plays audio through my device rather than my cast device. Also, last update was almost a year ago?! Dead app

It's approaching a year since the app was updated and broke a bunch of functionality and there's been no update since then. On their support forum they just say that it was outsourced to a place overseas and they haven't been given any update on when the next release will be.

Been a year since an update and functionality seems to be getting worse as time goes on. Used to be a great way to listen to podcasts. Shame.

Casting dissent work, import from Feedly is completely broken various errors when trying. Oauth errors make the application I paid for unusable.

Decent Pod catcher. I've only used it on my HTC U12+, but it's never crashed. It does take a seconds longer than expected to launch from time to time. I now listen to five podcasts, but it doesn't have all the podcasts I listen to. Interface is very easy to use, even for the free version.

I have a Galaxy S8+. Recently, BeyondPod has been repeatedly pausing, and sometimes crashing. This is annoying. I used to love this app, but the constant interruptions is driving me nuts. I'm a paid user.

Used to be great. Now it pauses constantly during playback for no reason. This is an issue on the forums going back a couple of years and is still not fixed.

I had been using this app for years, however recently the audio would inexplicably cut out. It's the only app that was doing this so I have switched to another app. I'm hoping this gets fixed because the podcast management of Beyond Pod is the best I've found.

It needs to STOP PLAYBACK when I answer a freaking phone call. Update 9/12/2019, it STILL doesn't stop. Fix this!

Your app keeps deleting my episodes after each update. It's annoying.

Used to be good. Now crashes regularly

While I have had this app for years, it now pauses everytime my screen closes. I cannot use the app now because I can't leave it playing with screen on. As frustrating as this malfunction is, I don't see any developer response to what is now a pile up of complaints in the review section in the PlayStore.

Great interface. Crash notifications every single time I open it, but does not stop functioning and play back is never interrupted. Has never appeared in the recents list which is a huge problem. I can't easily switch between maps and podcasts. Instead I have to go back to the shortcut on the home screen every time I open it. Maybe because it has trouble managing 4.3GB of podcasts which is truthfully not very much. Needs better memory and database management. Pro version Pixel 2 XL.

Used to be great but recently started skipping every few seconds during playback which basically makes it unusable.

It was great in the past. Over the last two years, updates have been sparse. In addition, there are numerous bugs. It seems like it's going downhill.

Runs in the background and chews up battery. Crashes, pauses and unreliable.

Awesome: - variable speed playback - per-podcast, per-group, per-all rule scopes with sensible overrides (delete all episodes older than... except if marked favorite... etc.) - supports all manner of feed/lookup/subscription model. Ugh: -extremely resource hangry. Struggles/chokes on mid tier devices. - Takes forever to start up. Usually setting off Android's "This App Isn't Responding, Wait/killl/send-feedback?" routine. - Due to above, means you cant just set car to "Play Bluetooth Audio".

I've been using this app for years but it's become increasingly unstable and can no longer recommend it. It leaves notifications in place after auto-updating even though it's set not to; stops playing at random; re-opens the media control navigation even after its been dismissed. Can no longer recommend.

Every update made this app worse, so I suppose we should be grateful they stopped

Update: I've used this app since my first smartphone but there are too many annoyances with it now and it may be time for me to move on. Episode titles no longer display properly and it's finicky to get it working on Android Auto among other issues. Still, nothing seems to match the smart playlists that you can create with this app.

I really like the application when using it on my phone. Using it on Android Auto however, is often quite frustrating. When first starting the app, it seems like it never manages to load. I always have to start it on my phone for it to work.

Once a great app, but the lack of support and updates made it extremely bugged, really sad.

I used to love it. After the most recent OS update, it keeps randomly pausing if the screen locks while connected to a bluetooth device or wired headphones. Verizon Galaxy S9

Long time user. On Android Q they player just stops. I have to go back to the player and press play again. Even if i leave the app open is still just stops.

Was a long time user. Support, updates nonexistent. Many bugs. Dead app.

Constantly crashes and the widget appears and disappears.

Great app trashed by new owners

This was my favorite podcast app. The app doesn't allow my phone's screen timeout to work, which in turn drains my battery faster and is a security risk because the screen doesnt lock. I waited and waited for the app developer to fix the problem and played with the settings, but it still exists. I reluctantly uninstalled the app and I'm trying other options like castbox. Too bad, I liked BeyondPod and used it for years.

Just gave up??

Love the variable playback speed, smart playlists and ability to share config backup to other apps (eg Dropbox). Used to be a great app, but neglect is killing it.

Abandoned by developer, buggy and needs fixes it will clearly never get

Functions when it actually launches, but freezes everytime I try to connect with bluetooth.

The best podcast player

Absolutely THE BEST podcast player in the world

I've been using BeyondPod for years and, for me, it is the best podcast player that I've found.

The App is clearly no longer supported. Could anyone recommend an equivalent App, ease of use, rich functionality... I haven't found anything that is as good as Beyond Podcast used to be.

Used to be great. I have been using for 5 or 6 years. Now it always crashes and cast stopped working a while ago. I have no switched to a combo of google podcast and Google play music. Its a shame because this app has some podcasts i love that are not on those apps. So I'm now in a sense using 3 apps instead of this one

Pauses every few seconds when playing over bluetooth. no other apps do that so it's not the device. Too bad, it was great before this. If they fix it I will gladly re-review at 5 stars. update- Podcast Republic is a good alternative, but I like the UI of beyondpod better, I hope they fix it. The pausing problem seems to be widespread reading other reviews

Great podcast manager. Widget is unusable

This app has been abandoned by the developer. Nearly one full earth year has passed since an update rendered the app unusable. As other reviews mentioned, an update back in October 2018 caused major performance issues and has never been corrected. App hangs on update, app hangs at startup, app won't play when widget is pressed. Have to manually force close the app then try again. Go elsewhere for your Podcast needs.

A truly great and easy to use podcast app. I highly recommend it for Podcast shows that are censored or blocked by big tech for "non-mainstream" opinions.

Crashes now. Used to be great, now crashes a lot, if not crashing will only play for a minute then stops. Have to get into phone, then app so i can push play. Now using Google Podcasts.

Not sure why this app always stops playing every several seconds. It just started this months ago. Very annoying. Even while typing this it stopped playing again.

Overall very good, but constantly crashes to almost be unusable

This use to be my favorite podcast app, but now it's buggy. App freezes & needs force stop. Pixel2XL
