It has been some time in the making but finally we are ready to start a limited BETA tests of BeyondPod's cross device syncing infrastructure (aka BeyondPod EpisodeSync).

You can find a brief overview of how EpisodeSync works and how to set it up in the EpisodeSync Help Page. A bit more extended description is also available in the following post.

IMPORTANT
  • EpisodeSync is supported starting from BeyondPod Phone v3.1.8 and BeyondPod Tablet v3.10.8 or later.
  • BeyondPod needs to be unlocked for EpisodeSync to work. (Sync settings are currently not available on the free or trial versions).
  • We currently have a limit for the number of BETA accounts that can be created on our servers. Spots will be available on first come - first serve basis. We will gradually let more BETA users in over time.
  • If you were part of the ALPHA test - you will need to create a new sync account after installing the new phone/tablet versions as we have changed the server the device uses. When you decide to switch, make sure to sync your devices for the last time, upgrade them to the new betas and create account/login to each one at about the same time so they can continue to talk to each other uninterrupted.

This version has most of the features we are planning to release. What we end up releasing depends on the feedback we get from all of you. Our goal is to start with very simple and predictable synchronization logic and grow it over time as needed. Please post your issues and suggestion only to this forum.

And remember... this is a BETA version - some interruption of service is possible as we tweak the implementation.
