Listening to podcasts on the Dell Streak 7 is a delight with BeyondPod

I love podcasts. I'm even a part of one, the CrowdGadgets podcast. Unfortunately, I'm not the biggest fan of how Android (natively) handles all of my podcast subscriptions. 

That's why I went out and found BeyondPod, a free RSS and podcast feed manager. It's much better than the stock Music app that the Dell Streak 7 comes with, and if you'd kindly join me below, you'll find out why.

When you open up the app, you're greeted with the listing of your podcast episodes. To add a new feed, you simply press the Menu button on your Streak and tap the 'Add Feed' button that pops up.

If you know the Feed URL for your podcast of choice, then you can enter it into the 'Add Feed' search field. To the right of the field, there is the search button itself, and after you press that, BeyondPod will instantly search for the episodes and throw them all into a nice little list for you.

From here, you can do either of two things: download the episode to listen to wherever you go, or stream it directly from the website it's hosted on. 

That's exactly what makes it so much better for me than manually finding the episode to listen to through the browser. Having all of the episodes in a list for me to pick and choose from is one of the easiest things in the world to do. It looks great, too.

Finally, streaming the episode will result in this screen showing up. It's a lot nicer than the music app's layout, and you can easily swipe back and forth between this screen and the last one that I showed you. 

Being free, BeyondPad is simply the best way to enjoy the CrowdGadgets podcast whenever you want to . . . and other podcasts, as well. I think you should give it a go on your Streak.
