FavTools: Podcast: BeyondPod for Android

You can Google all the the possible Podcast apps out there, but I suggest you settle down with the paid version of the BeyondPod app. (This is my recommendation for people who subscribe to a lot of Podcasts!!)

Why BeyondPod?

Any podcast app worth downloading must have

  • Change how fast the audio plays
  • Adjust how many episodes to download
  • Find and add podcasts by name and by RSS URL
  • Build playlists automatically

Reason 1: You can map the bluetooth next button to skip over 30 seconds of advertising. When you are driving or using your headset, this is a MUST have.

Reason 2: Map the bluetooth prev button to skip to end and remove the podcast for episodes that you have no interest in. When you are driving or using your headset, this is a MUST have.

Reason 3: Mark episodes as favorites so you can go back and listen, you can interact with description with show notes and links inside the notes.
