  • Podcaster - I Will Fight Now More Forever


    Podcaster has been kicked, punched, and beaten out of the AppStore, causing an uproar among the iPhone developer community in regards to Apple's app approval process.

    But Podcaster just. will. not. die.

    Today Alex got ahold of me asking us to host Podcaster in our Cydia repo, and after half an hour of screensharing to fix up a few minor tweaks, we got it completely ready for you. Try it out now...

    Podcaster allows you to subscribe, manage, stream and download podcasts directly to your iPhone and iPod Touch. Its shareware, a full license running $4.99 from his site.

      It does not work, i tried downloading some podcasts from G4 and it would only download a part of it, and for whatever reason it even states that the video is not compatible for playback.

      Hey, this is a very nice app. Its a shame it got rejected from the app store.

      But I have a few problems and maybe some recommendations.

      I am a big "ESPN: MMA Live" fan but when I search for it, it doesn't show up. I can see it on iTunes but not Podcaster. Can you explain this?

      As for a suggestion, it would be nice to sort out the podcast from audio ones and ones that are just videos.

      Other than that this app is very well done. You definitely have a customer man, keep up the good work!

      Maybe you should just dump your iPhone and quit being so mad at Apple! My Lord! I have never seen anyone with so much vitriol for the company that has actually produced a phone WE all really like. Sure, there are issues, but you are not a developer - as far as I can tell - just an angry young man Which, I, think, the band Kansas has a great song for you from the old days. You have a LOT of growing up, sir, and I hope you come to understand the world does not revolve around your 1,700+ posts....Oh, and what was that about me not being able to use the internet - or something like that? Seems as if you have had a few posts removed - for some reason.....

      ALL apps were NEVER free. Even in the days of Installer on 1.1.x, you were still required to BUY many of the better apps - not that the others were bad - it just indicates that Snapture, Kate, Customize, Paper Calc, iPhoneVideoRecorder (thanks, saurik, for the option) et al, did cost money. I have NEVER seen a time when all apps were free and nor should we. I remember one1 lambasting saurik and ste for daring to introduce ads into the mix to reduce cost - and MAYBE make a bit of money for their efforts! Even with a MS Mobile phone - it is not a free ride, but if you think so, dump your iPhone and go to an MS phone...............................

      All apps were never free. And plenty of developers asked for donations. You probably never donated; so that's why you claim that they were all free. Do you have a job? If not, do your parents have a job? If so, do you and/or your parents get paid for working? Then you should pay others for their work as well. If everybody becomes a freeloader, we will only get crappy and/or ad-filled apps for this platforms. I don't look forward to that scenario. I would rather pay to get plenty of solid, ad-free, and quality apps. Now stop your whining and pay up! I gladly paid $10 for this app; $5 is 50% off - a great bargain! If you don't use podcasts ro you don't mind syncing them with iTunes, then don't buy the app and use iTunes to sync your podcasts. These people make it seem like somebody is forcing them to buy the apps and that they don't have an alternative. You do; so make whichever choice suits you best.

      Maybe the non-iTunes source is flash? Maybe you should write to the maker of the app?

      Anyone having problems with this app? It launched the first time and I was able to search and add podcasts but now every time I try to launch it just crashes and closes. I am running 2.0.2 firmware and have tried uninstalling and re-installing it. Very sad about this because it seemed to be an awesome app.

      yup, same exact issue. I even used diskaid to make sure there weren't any other files anywhere on the iPhone associated with podcaster, and it still doesn't work

      Me too...... chopped up with little peanut butter spread on.

      Anyway, listen I am having this problem with the Podcaster program. Sometimes it crashes also, but this is my main problem:





      EDIT: not my biggest problem apparently.... this app crashes like crazy. Every time I delete a download and go delete a second download it crashes. It crashes while downloading. It crashes while getting podcasts........

      I got it to work by going into the already existing "/var/mobile/Documents" and deleting the files and folders inside it.

      I'm using MobileCast on 3.1.2, but not PodCaster. I'm using my iPhone 3GS to play music via my car dashboard (via a special USB cable).

      problem is the dash takes over the iPhone 3GS and plays only iPod songs (playlists, artists, albums), when I would also like to listen to my MobileCast episodes through it.

      I'm wondering if there's a way to transfer/sync MobileCast podcasts to my iPod music folders so i can play it direct off the dash.

      any help would be great. Thanks.
