The free BlackBerry Podcasts app was updated to v126.96.36.199 back in April but hasn’t seen much action since. According to RIM’s official forums that is going to change soon with them announcing v188.8.131.52 now available. That seems like a small bump but according to their forums it adds quite a few new features including push delivery of new episodes.
Features of the new version include
- BlackBerry® push delivery
When users subscribe to their favorite podcasts, they’ll receive notifications whenever new episodes become available. Users can get them delivered to their BlackBerry smartphone automatically.
- Wireless access to podcasts
With the BlackBerry Podcasts app 184.108.40.206, users can easily get their favorite podcasts onto their BlackBerry smartphone using Wi-Fi®.
- Podcast Catalog
Users can view their podcast subscriptions along with featured podcasts, top downloads, and specific categories like arts, entertainment, news and many more.
- Free podcast content
Users stay entertained with access to free podcast content using the BlackBerry Podcast app 220.127.116.11.
The new version supposedly will be available on BlackBerry 4.6 to 7 OS devices, however, BlackBerry ID, is only available for BlackBerry 7 OS devices.’
