Poddi podcatcher now free in the AppList 'store'

Published by at

When it comes to podcatchers on Symbian, there are two that work well - the eponymous option(!) and Poddi. Happily, both are now effectively free, as noted by me when I noticed that the latter has now been added to the wonderful AppList store/tool, linked below. Comments welcome, do you still use Symbian for your on-the-go podcast listening and which app is your favourite?

From the earlier story, eighteen months ago on the release of the current version:

Yes, Poddi marches on, rated by many as the most functional podcatching system on Symbian now. Version 1.1.6 introduces larger UI text, which will make the application much easier to use for those of us with less than perfect eye sight. Plus a number of fix-ups, see the changelog below.

Here's the changelog for Poddi 1.1.6 (over 1.1.5, which we reported here):

  • Improved podcast support
  • UI text enlarged where possible, for easier reading
  • "Current episodes" list only shows played items
  • Bug fixes: Partially downloaded files not marked as "downloaded"; detect when a feed changes the URL of an older episode

Here's Poddi 1.1.6 in action:


You can grab Poddi in the AppList store on your Symbian device, it's currently at the top of the home page. Or use this link.

Hopefully the AppList Store is working out for you all. See here just in case you haven't already got this installed or if this is new to you. Also, as you have custom firmware installed, make sure you tick the option in settings to show 'unsigned' applications, you'll see extra applications! If you haven't hacked or added custom firmware to your Symbian smartphone by now then you're 'doing it wrong', by the way...
