On the other hand whenever the uPod server encounters changes relevant for you - for example because one of your devices sent changes or new episodes for your subscriptions are detected - then uPod pushes these changes actively to all your devices. Meaning: In contrast to most other podcast players who are polling the server in a fixed interval for changes the uPod server pushes the changes to your device. This save battery and network traffic.
If you own two android devices you can test this:
- Make a change (for example change the order of the episodes on your playlist or mark some new episodes as read)
- Turn on your second device
- Within one minute you should see the changes on the second device
