When it comes to podcasting applications on Android, there are certain ones that stand above the rest. Among those, BeyondPod Podcast Manager may be the top dog, and for this weekend only, you can score this awesome app for just $1.99 as opposed to the usual $6.99.
BeyondPod is packed full of features (so many, I just had to use bullet points. I do love bullet points):
- Full Google Reader integration and sync
- both audio and video supported, or just use it as an RSS reader
- Complete podcast control: how many to download, when to download, and how many to store. It can even turn on your Wi-Fi, download your podcasts, then turn off Wi-Fi
- Auto-delete podcasts after they've been played
- Smart playlists: creates playlists based on your listening preference.
- Podcast categories (technology, sports, etc.)
- Compact (1x1) and full (4x1) homescreen widgets (for those out there that use Listen, you'll know that not having a widget is undeniably annoying)
- ...and much, much more.
Yeah, this podcatcher is about as full-featured as they come, and no wonder - it's been in development for over a year now.
It normally costs $6.99 (which is quite steep relative to Market prices, even considering how much it can actually do), so make sure to jump on this deal before the weekend is over!
Bonus: Using a tablet? The same key will work on BeyondPod HD, which is available here during the beta test period.
