podtrapper

Everyone knows what a Podcast is right? It’s basically your own private radio show and it has a social component very much in the same way blogs do. Podcatcher is a download manager and player of Podcasts. A good Podcatcher should be totally transparent, and once you’ve subscribed to your Podcasts it should be automatically downloading new episodes in the background. This is what PodTrapper aims to provide for Blackberry.

Podtrapper will allow you to consolidate your podcast listening down to a single device. RIM is working hard to provide a good media experience on Blackberrys (I hope), but a solution for Podcasts was forcing me to carry around both my phone and my media player. Now, with PodTrapper, I get to leave the media player at home.

Features:

* Automatic downloading of new episodes via Wifi (and soon via desktop app)
* Automatic downloading of new episodes via Cell network (On most carriers)
* Downloads via desktop application for those without Wifi or with difficult carriers
* Keeps track of last played podcast
* Remembers where you left off in every episode
* Reliable pause and resume of downloads when connectivity changes
* Built in keylock to allow for control of audio in your pocket

Download this app OTA here.

Download the prerelease OTA here.

Again, please comment if you’ve tried this out. The community will appreciate your comments!

    It’s great to be able to download podcasts without tethering. Very configurable (for example, you choose whether to download via cellular data or WiFi). Developer is very responsive to bug reports. Very strongly recommended.

    PodTrapper and it’s developer Marcus (commented in this thread) is one of THE best apps I have on my 8820. I use it every day in the car, when walking around, it’s just brilliant to be able to combine that content into the phone. The more of these cool apps that come out, the less lust I have for the iPhone. :)

    If you have a Blackberry and you listen to podcasts you are cheating yourself not giving this app a try. The 30-day free trial is fully functional.

    If you are going to purchase – do it thru his website so Marcus gets more $. :)

    So far so good. I really enjoy this app, and the developer is very fast in responding to questions if a problem arises.

    Great app. I’m about to run out of my 30 day trial and am seriously considering purchasing this program. There have been alot of updates to this in the past couple of weeks and have not had time to mess with some of the changes. Got 2 days left to learn and make a decision. So far it is the best I have used and seen.

    I usually will look for a free app for stuff like this but after using it for 30 days, I just had to buy it. (I know, I know, it’s only $10) Now that I use Podtrapper I have put away my ipod, so now I only carry around 1 device.

    I just downloaded the updated version 2.1.0 and once again Markus read my mind about things he should change to make podtrapper even better.

    Thank you versatile monkey!
