I’ve seen a lot of very interesting apps come out of the App Store lately. It’s always fun to check the Top 25 and see a new app available. However, some of the best apps to date are available only via the jailbreak (I’m thinking of QIK and PDAnet). Today we’re going to check out a program that will appeal to all you podcast listeners out there.
Podcaster: Download and Listen to Podcasts on your iPhone
In the words of the creator, Podcaster will “allow you to subscribe, manage, stream and download podcasts directly to your iPhone and iPod Touch.” The interface allows you to stream the podcasts over 3G/EDGE/WiFi via the Quicktime player.
You can import your own podcasts plus you can view featured, newest, top rated, and popular podcasts. You can also search for podcasts by title. This app as you can see includes lots of options for you to find your favorite podcasts. In my testing of Podcaster I tested out downloading podcasts from the CBC (being a Canadian blog). I was able to view and download from over 30 CBC Radio podcasts, including their CBC News: Hourly Edition podcast, which is great for news on the go.
Podcaster works exactly as advertised and it pretty cool since you can access the most popular podcasts directly on your iPhone. The program comes with a 14 day trial and afterwards you can purchase an activation code for a reasonable $4.99. Or you could get it for free here…you know what’s coming…
