I discovered this iPhone/iPad app PODCASTER
today. It costs 99 cents on the iTunes App Store, and it's pretty cool.
Actually there are two different apps, depending on which iPhone software you are running.
If you are using iOS4 then get the app called Podcaster
If you are using iOS3 then get the app called RSS Player Podcast Client
(for original iPhone only)
If you have an iPhone 3G, 3GS, or 4 you can run iOS4. The original iPhone must run iOS3.
The iPads run iOS4.RSS Player Podcast Client
aren't our apps. We aren't getting the 99 cents. I'm just telling you about them in case they may be useful to you.
You can download any podcast from the iTunes store using them. The nice thing about it is if you have a pair of headphones, you can listen to our podcasts, or any podcast without even having to connect your phone to a computer to download the episodes. Normally, in order to download a large file (all of our shows are large files)...if you tried to just go to the iTunes store and download it...you would get a message that says you must connect to WIFI before you can download the episode. But with this app, it will download large files.
I just bought it to check it out. Works really well. I just went to the search section and typed in Raider Nation.....and up popped Raider Nation Podcast and Raider Nation Videocast. From there you can subscribe to either or both. RSS PLAYER gives you the most recent 10 episodes and a link to download older episodes. PODCAST gives you the most recent 3 episodes and a link to download more.
We're not making any money from this, since it's not our app (I should figure out how to make our own!)....but if you think this would come in handy for you, it is an option. There have been times when Greg was visiting his mother up in northern California....and didn't have a computer to listen to our latest episode on.....and this app would have solved his problem. As long as you have cellphone reception. Plus....if you have this app on one of our podcast episodes, there is an icon you can touch that will show you the show notes (description of the show topics). Another nice feature....our show notes always contain the phone number for the Boneline, and it will appear as a link. If you touch it, it will call the Boneline for you and you can leave a voicemail message and get on the next podcast.
