BlackBerry Podcasts App v1.5.0.45 Rolling Out?


The free BlackBerry Podcasts app was updated to v1.5.0.28 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 v1.5.0.45 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, 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

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.’

Keep an eye out in App World on the Podcasts page for the update

  1. I like this app but it is missing one important feature – playlists.

    Which is somewhat perplexing since Podcasts is basically an extension of the media app which does allow playlist creation.

  2. I don’t get why one would choose this app instead of Podtrapper.
    The catalog is so limited and there doesn’t seem to be a way to import your own podcasts.

  3. also you can add your own podcasts.
