phone in its place. The phone (obviously) came with no "built-in" software
podcatcher. I tried myPodder, and wasn't really happy with it. I tried
running it from my Mac Mini as well as my Dell machine. I tried running it
from the desktop and I also tried running it from the phone, over USB. It
never seemed to work right. I specifically recall one occasion where the
software had indicated it had updated all of my subscriptions, and when I
went to listen back to the podcasts it had downloaded, all of the files were
only partially complete. Also, it took myPodder over an hour to aggregate
those partially downloaded files. That's way too long. I don't know if
maybe I'm subscribed to too many 'casts for myPodder to handle, or if it was
a fluke thing. But, I wouldn't use the software again.
