    May 2020. Finally giving up. Too buggy unless you downgrade to an old version 2019It's the podcast app I use out of inertia but I wouldn't recommend. On my S8 it often lags to open. The widget only works about half the time and it freezes up to a degree that is unacceptable unless you've been using it for as long as I have and don't want to transport all your RSS feeds out. I love the layout compared to something like pocketcasts and that's the only reason I'm here.

    This app was awesome for several years it just worked. No idea what has happened but now it barely works and what should be a simple task to make my morning commute nice, now its a daily source of frustration first thing in the morning. Recently it had also stopped updating my feeds overnight. Sad when I just find it easier to browse to the website and stream directly from a webpage.

    Goodbye, beyondpod. After using it daily for 6 years, I'm about to uninstall for the last time. I just tried it, to see if it would fix increasing problems. Sadly, NOTHING was preserved (w/out warning me) . Lost all shows, their categorization, episode played status, saved episodes, etc. Was willing to see if a reinstall would fix things, but having to start from scratch I'll be trying other alternatives. Like breaking up with a person who had so much going for them but just too much baggage. :(

    I'm sadly giving up on this app after 10+ years of ardent loyalty, after more than 2 years of frustration. About 6 months ago I downgraded to v4.2.18, which seemed to be the last stable build, as I couldn't give up BeyondPod's unmatched SmartPlay. After I saw the recent major update, v4.3.8, was finally out I hesitantly upgraded. I regret doing so; the app is still virtually unusable. I found a decent replacement to SmartPlay with Pocket Casts and their "Up Next" feature and have been a happy user there for over a week. Don't bother upgrading, the developer has either lost the will or the skill to keep this app regularly bug-free.

    Like everyone else, I'm ditching this app now. I bought it ages ago and got good use of of it for years but each new android version brought new bugs they haven't kept on top of and too many important features don't work as they should any more and new features are rare. Using it to search for new podcasts is a waste of time. Sadly it's just not as good as the other podcast apps anymore and I wouldn't recommend it.

    Excellent app! This has be the best and wonderful podcast app now compared to previous versions of this app, thnx for fixes. I've using this podcast player for all these days without any problm. It has advanced features like auto build the playlist and automatic scheduled downloads that you won't find in other apps. In particular, I appreciate the numerous customizable settings and the updated news feed, story telling for children is awesome I'm enjoying and love the smart playlists of this app.

    So out of loyalty I thought I'd give the new update a go, v4.3.8. First bug is that compact view doesn't work. For me I've not gone any further, UNINSTALLED AGAIN! Come on how can this get through testing after all this time. Back to Podcast Addict now. Same functionality, regular updates, great developer. Worth the price. Note: v4.2.18 which works great, this is a 4 star app, still better than current.

    Hard to judge this app too harshly as I've been using it for years, but like many of the other recent reviews it has become too buggy. I have been dealing with the delayed start issue for over 6 months now with no solution and customer support is slow to respond and with no solutions anyway. Newest issue is that attempting to download a new episode of a podcast causes the app to crash altogether. Streaming function works still, but downloading old podcasts out of timeframe range is impossible

    Why isn't this app more popular! I've been using it for years and recently compared it to a few other podcast apps, and BeyondPod still is one of the most feature packed apps out there. The killer feature for me is the AutoPlaylist and how configurable it is vs other apps with similar functionality. Whenever your queue empties out, it will automatically regenerate based on rules you setup. You tell your auto playlist to add a number of episodes from specific podcasts. You can tell it to play oldest, newest, or random episodes. You can group your podcasts into custom categories and add apply the same rules to them as well. I just subscribe to a new podcast, add it to a category or update my auto playlist rules, and don't have to worry bout manually keeping my queue populated. And it's got all the other stuff you'd expect from a podcast app. Playback speed (global and per podcast), cast support, add any podcast you want, plus tons more. Best of all, the paid app is a one time cost and you don't deal with ads vs subscription models I'm seeing become more common.

    There have been several interface bugs for a while, but they've been tolerable, mostly. Sometimes episodes will mark as played when you try to play it, which is very bad with the episode deletion upon finishing setting. Now the player will disappear if you pause to long. Otherwise it has good features.

    No longer stays in the control panel or responds to controls on headphones, so now stopping and starting the player means unlocking the phone, navigating to the app, and *then* starting or stopping the player. Feh. I've used the paid version for years but I suppose it's time to move on.

    Latest update 13th? May 2020 causes app to crash if you try to download a new ep of a podcast. Download stops about half way through and get "App has stopped close/wait" etc msg while any playing episode keeps playing in background. Also stops some functionality of phone too. (Very long time, paying, user)

    This keeps getting buggier with each version. Almost never restarts of you stop playing for more than 15 min and now this latest version keeps locking up and I actually have to force stop. I've been using this for many years and I think o finally need to migrate to another app.

    Takes a few minutes to start the app now, and has other little broken details - there's a blank notification bar I sometimes can't dismiss, after pausing a long podcast, it doesn't always resume at the right spot (usually a few minutes later).

    I have been using beyondpod for over a decade, but I'm dumping it. 1) it has had the tendency, when in a specific podcasts "all episodes" list, to display all the episodes of one or more other podcasts in addition to the one I am looking at. 2)it does not properly erase podcasts after you delete them. I had over 9 GB of audio and music files, which didn't seem to be attached to a program. Google Files discovered hundreds? thousands? of old podcasts that I listened to on Beyondpod.

    When it's running well, it works fine, but that's getting more and more rare. The app CONSTANTLY pauses podcasts for now discernable reason. The app also occasionally crashes when I switch from wifi to cell data, like when I leave for work in the mornings. When this happens you may as well forget about getting it back for at least 15 or 20 minutes because the whole thing crashes and even a force stop won't have it correct course.

    I love the smart playlists of this app. But the app was pretty broken for more than a year and the most recent update just undid the most recent issue it created. I was expecting all the other little issues to be cleared up too since it took so long to get this version to us. Are the new owners trying to drive people to competing apps?

    I have loved the drive fiction/layout on this app, and have been mostly saturated with almost everything about the paid version. The biggest problems I am dealing with is that it freezes or crashes whenever it connects to both of my cars bluetooth. I have also had a bunch of issues where it uses battery in the background. Then if you put it to "sleep", it will constantly stop while you are trying to listen to something. Then you have to go in and cancel the "put to sleep" function in settings.

    Used to love this app and even recommend it to friends. I paid for the premium version, and it's no longer a premium product. The pausing over Bluetooth kills the positives of the app and even makes it a danger while driving! Support basically just says, "we're working on it." That's been an issue for a YEAR! After I get through my downloaded episodes, I'm headed to Pocketcast.

    This is easily the most frustrating app that I use on a regular basis. I paid for it at some point, so I guess I'm embracing sunk cost by continuing to use it. Episodes stop playing randomly, errors occur with no explanation, the UI is abysmal, the logic that preserves playlists is non-sensical. I wouldn't recommend this app above others until more time is put into usability and reliability.

    To be honest, this is the best power user podcast app I've used. You can create "stations" that play certain genres (news, comedy, etc) for whatever mood you're in -- and link them to buttons on your home screen. Super easy once you set it up with all the rules about what pods to grab. It'll generate playlists for you.

    This isn't the podcast app for everyone. It is powerful and allows control over each podcast, but it is complicated and a bit clunky due to the extensive feature set. If you want to be able to manage how many episodes stay on your device per podcast etc. Then this is the app for you. If you just want to discover and start listening to podcasts look elsewhere.

    I was a faithful user of this app for over 10 years, but I finally gave it up. BeyondPod just hasn't been keeping up. Casting to Chromecast and other devices doesn't work, many of the downloaded episodes don't show time durations, and it's extremely temperamental with Android Auto. I'm sad to be leaving because I got a lot of great service from this app. Thanks to the developers for those years of enjoyment. However, I can't put up with the bugs anymore, so I've switched to AntennaPod.

    I've been using this app for the last 5+ yrs. I used to give it 4 stars, now I've dropped it down to one. For the last few months the functionality has been very buggy. The app has a hard time opening at times, and the audio no longer works correctly when another app needs to use audio. Example: a podcast is playing, and the navigation is giving you instructions. This app is in need of an update. It's been over a year since the last one.

    This app was great at the beginning. I went a year or 2 without any issues. Until recently. It started pausing every single minute. I mainly use it in my car via Bluetooth. Never had this issue before with the same conection also didn't have any similar issues with other apps. Did the usual things to troubleshoot restarting, refreshing, uninstall and reinstall. It continued to do it so I'm going to have to go elsewhere. The app was last updated in mid 2018, doubt I'll see a change soon.

    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. Phone- Samsung s8.

    Used to love this app, but constant pausing is making me want to look elsewhere. I've paid for the unlocked version and essentially it is now useless. I haven't yet tried corded earbuds or speakers with it, so maybe it is only a Bluetooth issue with the frequency of pausing, but really, so many people use wireless and Bluetooth accessories, this is something that needs to be fixed. It's disappointing to find out that this has been going on for a while with no solution in sight.

    I have used BeyondPod for years, however, it has recently become unusable due to the frequent pauses during playback. Looking at other reviews, it appears that others have this problem as well. It's a pity. The app is great in every other way, but if it can't play podcasts without pausing all the time, the other features mean nothing. Hopefully this problem is fixed soon. In the meantime, I'll have to find another podcast app to use.

    This app no longer chromecast anymore. The developers apparently have given up on this one time excellent product. The money I spent years ago on the pro version is now gone to waste. I'm looking for other casting apps to replace this one.

    This used to be a great app. Over the last few months, when listening over Bluetooth in my car, the app pauses every 60 to 90 seconds. It takes two presses off my headunit play/pause button to resume playback. This happens repeatedly, 20 times over my 25 minute commute. This is intolerable, PLEASE FIX ASAP. I submitted a bug report months ago!

    Sad to stop using. I'd been using this podcast app for years and loved it! Unfortunately, it looks like it's no longer being updated and it's having all kinds of problems - sudden crashing, periodically won't connect to Bluetooth, stops playing, won't stop playing even when stop is pressed, etc. Downloaded Podcast Addict. It took a little time to get used to but it does all of the stuff I liked about BeyondPod.

    I've been a premium user for several years. It is my sole podcast app that i use. However, the widget is basically worthless. 99% of the time you try to access the app through the widget, it locks up. Requires a force quit to get working again. Contacted support and they just said it was a known issue. That was over a year ago. I guess they have no plans of fixing that issue. If they got that working, would be 5-stars.

    Overall pretty good. Only complaint is that there is no stop button. So if you have a podcast running it will appear your notifications until you either finish listening or close the all entirely.

    Like the app, interface, and features and even went to the point of paying for it because I was happy with it. However, it stops playing every so often for no reason. Google podcast does the same thing so I'm gonna try to download before I listen and see if that fixes the problem. If so I would give the app 5 stars... If not, 3 it is.

    It's unfortunate, but the day has finally come to uninstall and move on. I purchased the unlock key for BeyondPod 6 years ago and have used it nearly every day since. It used to be great, but is clearly no longer being supported (last update was over 1 year ago). Now BeyondPod suffers from buggy behavior (sometimes crashes or doesn't launch). I have tolerated the buggy behavior for quite a while, but now it's time to find an alternative.

    The app used to be great however I have come to believe that the developer has either stopped updating it, can't keep up, or simply doesn't care. I've paid for the license but it still has become nearly un-usable. It has great features and a good UI but doesn't work half the time and has issues streaming to Nest Devices. Currently looking into a replacement podcast manager.

    This is a nice looking podcast application. Looks like the pausing issue has returned with constant pausing every few seconds. This happened over a year ago too then they fixed it, now pausing again. Chromecast ING not working either. The programmers at beyond pod don't care and given up since it hasn't been updated since October 2018. That is more than one year with no updates. Time to look for new podcast player. It is a shame, Beyond pod used to be very good.

    I've been using this app for several years now (first free, and then paid), and had been having a generally positive experience until the past year. As other recent reviews illustrate, this app has issues with playback. What began as random pauses when attached to a Bluetooth device has evolved into random pauses regardless of scenario: connected to Bluetooth, using wired headphones, or just being played through the phone's speakers. Use a different player until this dev does some work.

    Has been buggy lately. Current issue is that it is stuck on "preparing stream" for any file that is in my queue. (All Of them Have ALREADY FINISHED DOWNLOADING.) Even forcing the app to close, and then opening it again does nothing to fix this. None of them will play. I have the premium (paid) version. Over 16 months and there has been no bug fix release?

    I used to love this app, I've even paid for the unlock and have been using it for years. But in the past few months it has been freezing when opening or trying to play from the widget. When opening it will show a blank white screen and freeze. It will also constantly notify that it's updating feeds when my schedule is set to once per day. Please fix. This is still a constant issue. Still no fix.

    I have had a real love/hate relationship with this app. I have been using it for 7 years, and when it works, it's great. Unfortunately, every few months, it will just stop about every 60 seconds durring a podcast. It is the most annoying and infuriating experience. I keep giving this app a chance, but I think it is time to find something else.

    Was a great app for several years, but last few months it has been a worsening problem of pausing during playback over Bluetooth. Sometimes it will go 2 - 5 minutes, but most of the time it's only a matter of a few seconds until it stops. It's pretty much useless unless you just listen via onboard speaker of your phone.

    I have used this app for years. It's been great and I still love it. Many people have recently complained of a bug that causes excessive pausing while on bluetooth. I too have experienced this. The solution was to change the settings to not automatically pause when Bluetooth is disconnected. Although sometimes you want that behavior it is buggy so it's best to turn it off so you don't experience pausing. Other then that issue (and the occasional crash) this is still the best podcasting app IMO.

    This app used to be good I even paid money for it years ago it was so good. Now it's about the worst thing on my phone. Where to begin. Constantly pausing for no reason, change Bluetooth or from or to Bluetooth it looses it's position on a podcast, if a pause, randomly crashes after resume and have to actually go into settings find the app and force stop it and then go and reopen it and hope it didn't lose its place. Support was a joke telling me to wait for an update and no refund.

    I'm also writing a review to talk about the pausing issue. I've used this app for many years but after the last update, it started pausing every few seconds when playing a podcast. I've gone through all the settings and tried all the fixes. Nothing has helped. I'm finally going to ditch it for a new app. It's too bad that the developers have basically abandoned their customers and haven't fixed this issue but it's become impossible to use.

    not great. using it for years, but it takes forever to buffer while streaming and if you stop a streaming podcast and use another app it has to rebuffer again. it also freezes and crashes more than I'd like. been using pro version and think I'm ready to switch.

Never had any problems with it. Supports hundreds of podcasts simultaneously. There is no similar product even for windows platform.

    Great podcast app. Been using it for years. Has features like automatic scheduled downloads that you won't find almost anywhere else. It has to lose a star for performance though. It can be very sluggish to start up and downloading episodes can take forever. There is also no option to keep the app alive in the background so once you've paused automatic resume on Bluetooth fails.

    I don't understand why folks are giving this app such bad reviews. I've upgraded to Pro back in 2012 and its been a daily companion since then. It has the most logical layout of any of the podcasting apps with advanced features that let me auto build the playlist. The one thing that was frustrating to me was that I recently started using it over Bluetooth in my car, and it kept pausing. It turned out that a setting needed to be turned off (Settings/Player Settings/Automatic Pause or Resume/Pause on Headset Disconnect: set to unchecked). Once I fixed this it worked great. If BeyondPod isn't working quite the way you want, there is a good chance there is a setting set incorrectly.

    Used to be one of the best, now it's riddled with small bugs that get patched once a year, if you're lucky. Developer clearly doesn't care about the user base and is doing the BARE MINIMUM to keep this thing on life support so he can suck up money from the Play Store.
