Doesn't handle podcasts in any practical way For my purposes, if falls short in a big way and a small way: 1) It doesn't allow me to stream podcasts using my podcast manager. (Asking me for a podcast URL is just silly, since I don't generally have them memorized, and anyhow, I usually have them downloaded.) 2) Doesn't seem to handle Google Music. (Not that critical, because Google music has too many issues to be my main music source.) I'm sure for other use cases it works fine, but for me, there is no apparent value and it will be uninstalled shortly. --- A year later: Same issues. I don't want to re-download the podcast, I want to stream from my existing podcast player. I assume this is probably an issue with the Android APIs -- that, by design, there is no way to hook audio playback and stream it instead. But that's what I want.

Pretty Good Does what the description says. Hope that it can start playing flv and avi soon. Other than mp4, those are my most frequent video formats. I am a little worried looking at the premium reviews. I am even planning to back up that one app. But since the demo worked well enough, with better quality than playto, I am trying out the paid version. Please add more support so I can remove my MP4 converter app. Its hard to be efficient when you have to add more media utilizes next to already bulking videos.
