    I grouped my podcasts in google reader and I'm using "new items in ...", listening in chronological order and hopping between several streams makes much more fun than working on one stream after the other.
    As far as I see this, the conglomeration to "all new ..." is done by Google?! I would like to see that functionality in the "new" beyondpod too.
    Beyondpod is the only app I paid for on my phone - ever. Please keep up the good work!

    What about Feedly?

    Maybe beyondpod could be hooked into their Normandy API http://blog.feedly.com/2013/03/14/google-reader/

    I wonder if BeyondPod would be able to support self-hosted replacements to Google Reader, like http://tt-rss.org/?

    Feedly is planning a drop-in replacement for the google reader infrastructure http://blog.feedly.com/2013/03/14/google-reader/

    Perhaps get in contact with them...

    Or just drop Google read altogether. I just use it as a convenient way to subscribe to feeds from my computer and sync them on my phone.
    As long as I don't have to enter feed urls on my phone and don't have to enter them again when I reinstall on a new device...

    They are interested in keeping the infrastructure alive with 3rd party developers, sounds like a good bet:
    " if you are a third party developer using the Google Reader API and would like to integrate with Normandy, please send an email to remi@feedly.com. We would love to keep the Google Reader ecosystem alive."

    If we do enter podcasts manually, without the aid of google reader, will those be ok at least?

    BeyondPod's own Backup/Restore saves all your configuration info, including your feeds, SmartPlay config, etc. There is no need to re-enter any of your feed information.

    As to using Google Reader to avoid typing a URL on your phone or tablet, there are lots of ways to add feeds to BeyondPod, including clicking on the link on the publishers web site - unless you have set another default app to open RSS links, BeyondPod will be offered as an application to open the feed link with; you can also search for feeds in BeyondPod (a lot of backend work has been done recently to improve the feed DB). If all else fails, you can email the link to yourself from a desktop PC and click on the link in your email to get BP to open it (i.e. add the feed).

    Of course they will. See my earlier post in this thread.

    Amen! No perhaps about it! Google Reader has provided the essential ability to access older episodes that get dropped from short feeds like This American Life.
    Hope that helps,

    I know what ever happens the BeyondPod team will take care of us, you have a great app, the only one I have ever paid for, and your efforts in keeping it great are very much appreciated. Thank you for keeping us up to date.

    Just want to add my concern over this announcement also and truly hope that Beyondpod are able to put an alternative in place before the cut off. I use beyondpod exclusively for all my podcasts with audio being managed by a version on my phone and video going to the tablet version on my Nexus 7
