Update for PlayPod Listeners

Written by: Adam Christianson

Categories: Feedback

Hey geeks. For those of you using PlayPod I just received this email from the developer

I am the developer of PlayPod. I heard you mention to your listeners that some people using PlayPod weren’t getting your updates. Just wanted to let you know that PlayPod 1.0b6 fixed a nasty bug that prevented some feeds from automatically downloading podcasts.

Kind Regards,

Ian G. Gillespie, Ph.D.

I recommend going over to www.iggsoftware.com and getting this update.

    I purchased PlayPod on 3/29. I have your latest podcast…no problem. I am a relatively new Mac user…last 6 months. I enjoy your work/info and it helps me learn how to use my new PowerBook G4.

    Unfortunately it’s no longer a beta version, so you have to pay 17 dollars.

    Last time I checked, it was still very buggy. It’s definitely showing promise, especially if the ridiculously short 5-minute trial time can be extended or another system implemented.

    I use iPodder and it has worked for me for the past few weeks. I have only started listening to podcasts recently. I’m not sure if paying for these other programs gets me more features than iPodder.

    I personally don’t think PlayPod is good enough quality to warrant 17 bucks. None of the “podcatching” software is.

    Podcast Tuner is probably the best I’ve seen, but I’m staying with PlayPod for now because you can selectively download Podcasts. I don’t subscribe to dozens of feeds, so I like to have a little more control over what’s being downloaded. I find that the automatic downloading is irritating. I emailed Nowhere Man about adding this feature but he didn’t seem interested.

    PlayPod is also good for Leo Laporte’s KFI show feed where he will split up the show into three files, often releasing 6 to 12 MP3s at the same time. PlayPod lets me keep better track of what’s new and make sure I get exactly what I want, not too much or too little.
