    Social, Rating component

    Unless I'm missing something, there is no rating component as seen in iTunes. I'm always hearing, "Leave a rating in iTunes." But I use BeyondPod nearly exclusively. I think these podcast creators are missing something by not promoting the Android versions.

    iOS/Apple users have a central directory of podcasts, namely iTunes.

    No such single directory exists for other platforms. Every podcatcher (including BeyondPod) has to maintain its own database of podcasts, which means that ratings would be specific to only users of that app. It also means that podcast publishers have no central place other than iTunes to send their their audience to to rate anything.

    BP does know which podcasts are popular with its users, and uses that information for the Trending and Recommended sections when you add a feed.
