BlackBerry Podcasts v1.6 Released in Beta Zone


The Podcasts app for BlackBerry has been a bit buggy searching for new feeds for awhile now so hopefully this update fixes that. I have always been hoping that RIM expands the Podcasts app along with allowing it in more countries but hopefully that is coming. Here is the change log for the new version 1.6 in App World:

Since this is the last beta program for the application, BlackBerry Podcasts 1.6 will consist of features deemed as essential by tester feedback. Changes in BlackBerry Podcasts 1.6 include:

  • Removal of hosted catalogue
  • Improved performance for user-added RSS feeds
  • Improved content auto-delivery and configuration options for a Podcast subscriptions

You can find the updated Podcasts v1.6 in the Beta Zone

Thanks Tashanna for the tip!

  1. switched to podcaster a few days ago after frustration w/ BB native application. Excited to see this beta so loaded it. Couldn’t find any of my favorite podcasts using the search feature. Podcaster “seems” to emulate an itunes connection. Don’t know if it really does or how it works but it is awesome and does all I want and more. It lacks BBM and some native app features so I wish the Blackberry Beta program had more to offer. It’s deleted and I’m sad for that.

  2. Yay, finally…
    They finally admitted that their own hosting was a DUD.
    They finally saw that updates are not happening fast enough and sometimes (like my own hosted podcast) their own hosting would fail completely to update…ever
    The downside, you have to enter the links manually now or use the web browser to assist in the search which isn’t a big deal…
    Also another downside is you have to redownload all files for the podcasts you like, you will notice that some of them have a different image now.
    It’s a bit messy I admit at first, but for the long run it’s a success in my humbled opinion.
    Is there a good side to this?
    Well, you can just try copy all your favorite podcast to the updated channel and it will be seen (unlike before) and will work too…so you don’t have to download new stuff.

  3. Yeah I did notice that it now skips the RIM catalog and goes to the source. Funny that it took them so long.
