I released a small update which fix­es an out of mem­o­ry error and bad device respon­sive­ness when down­load­ing episodes from a pod­cast wihtout cov­er­art.

Version 1.1

Written by sven. Posted in releases

Version 1.1 has passed the beta phase. Though the ver­sion num­ber indi­cates a small­er update, indeed this is a big one. It’s main pur­pose is to imple­ment the new work­flow as described in the relat­ed blog post.

In short: For each episode a »New«-state is now tracked. New episodes are shown with bold font like in an e-mail client. New episodes appear in the »New«-section and — if you want — also every­where in your library where they nat­u­ral­ly belong to. The old »Inbox«-section has been removed.

Fur­ther on uPod can now add new episodes auto­mat­i­cal­ly to the end of your playlist if you wish it to — this is pos­si­ble either for all new episodes or you can con­fig­ure this on a per-sub­scrip­tion basis.

As a big­ger visu­al change you may notice, that uPod now uses a new font for episode and pod­cast titles on Jel­ly Bean and above. This con­densed font is much small­er and pro­vides bet­ter read­abil­i­ty for the titles and doesn’t occu­py as much space as before.

But the new ver­sion also brings a lot more. Here is the full list of changes:


  • Start­up con­fig­u­ra­tion wiz­ard
  • Replaced inbox with »new episode« mech­a­nism
  • Global/subscription set­ting to auto­mat­i­cal­ly add episodes to the playlist
  • Global/subscription set­ting to auto­mat­i­cal­ly mark episodes as read (not-new)
  • Mark finished/unfinished action
  • Noti­fi­ca­tion for new episodes
  • Con­densed font for episode and pod­cast titles for bet­ter read­abil­i­ty
  • show pod­cast title over­lay in tiny pod­cast grid view for pod­casts whithout cov­er­art
  • load­ing not local­ly avail­able cov­er­art dynam­i­cal­ly from the web
  • Tap and hold an action icon for more info
  • option to select SD card as stor­age on Android KitKat and above
  • con­fir­ma­tion dia­log for chang­ing stor­age

Bug Fixes

  • fix too long file name issue for episode down­loads
  • fol­low even cross pro­to­col (HTTP -> HTTPS) redi­rects on down­load
  • pause down­loads when stor­age isn’t avail­able and resume when it’s back
  • pause down­loads when con­nec­tion is gone instead of mark­ing whole queue as failed
  • fixed white back­ground flash when enter­ing show notes view

Other Changes

  • Reduced free lis­ten­ing con­tin­gent to two hours per month (
