Podcasts stop updating
For podcast listeners, this update will make cellular connectivity even more compelling and make leaving your i Phone behind a bit easier.
To get the latest feed content, you have to tell Beyond Pod to update (synchronize) a particular feed or feeds.
We’re aware of an issue that prevented podcasts from appearing in the Google Podcasts app for beta users of the Google Search app.
Like milk, podcasts will spoil if left unused for a period period of time -- at least in the mind of i Tunes.
There are 2 ways to download podcasts for a given feed: Podcast Download Logic Beyond Pod offers 2 different algorithms for downloading podcast episodes.
(You can select the desired algorithm in the "Feed Podcast Episodes" dropdown of the Feed Properties Dialog): As podcasts are downloaded, they are added to the "download history" (marked as "Downloaded") so they are not downloaded again even if they are deleted.
That’s a handy new convenience, but the real fun is in playing podcasts directly from Apple Watch without the i Phone.
