Blackberry Gets Podcatcher

Feb 27th, 2009 | By | Category: Audio Podcasting, iPods & Portable Media Players has released PodTrapper for the popular Blackberry phone/portable media device. The PodTrapper is a podcatcher, or download manager and player of podcasts.

The $9.99 application allows users to consolidate podcasts a single device, rather than schlepping a Blackberry for phone and texting, and a separate portable media player for podcasts.

Simon Sage of IntoMobile has been using the PodTrapper podcatcher and says, it “isn’t what you’d call pretty, but it’s extremely practical, includes a large, categorized podcast directory, and above all, gets my podcasts over the air.”

PodTrapper features include:

  • 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
  • “It Just Works, mostly, ” say the application’s creators.

Information about a 30 day free trial of PodTrapper can be found here.

    I downloaded Pod Trapper, and it worked fantastically well! This thing was worth far more than $10. I have a BB 8830 running OS 4.5 (Sprint), and it functions perfectly for me. I don’t dock with my PC very often, so transferring files from a PC-based podcatcher is a pain for me. This software gives me my podcasting fix wirelessly. I just “set it and forget it!” This is perhaps the best BB software I’ve ever downloaded. (Sorry gCalc).

    Ultra Podcast Player is another podcast app for the blackberry that’s also pretty good. I like the fact that i can search for podcasts in their library.

    Pod Trapper is recommendes and may be nice if you allow the applcation full sucess to almost every aspect ob the BB device. I do not like to allow access to gps, folders and kontacts.
    Whis this restrictions PodTrapper will not work correctly.
