    Default Download podcast direct to iphone

    Does anyone know of an app that will download podcasts directly to the iphone? It would be great to pick up my iphone in the morning and automatically have my subscribed podcasts ready for listening on the way to work.

    If this app is in development i'd gladly donate.

    It's called iTunes

    I think he means via wifi or edge. I also would like to have something like this maybe a 'PoDCast' manager type application that could auto check for new podcasts from various sites?

    Well, it'd be nice if the iTunes wi-fi store allowed you to download podcasts, but I don't think it can. :/

    Yeah itunes will do it but often I dont sync my iphone before I leave for work, it would just be nice if the iphone could connect each night and download the latest podcast automatically without me having to sync thru itunes.

    It would be difficult. You'd need to write the file in the ipod format to the podcast part of the iphone, then probably fake a sync so the ipod would look for new files.

    I was being a bit flippant, but seriously though, don't you leave it connected to iTunes overnight as a matter of course to recharge it ?

    I haven't looked at this yet - it's probably harder than this BUT:
    I'm going to assume that the in-phone itunes DB (the file that keeps track of all the other music files) is probably an SQLite file.

    So - in theory, it shouldn't be TOO hard to:
    1> check a URL or read an RSS feed to look for new Podcasts to download.
    2> pull down the new files into roughly the right area
    3> and update the itunes DB.

    It's on my todo list to figure out if it is that easy or not -- I rather suspect it may not be. But then, sound on my iPhone is the least of my concerns right now.

    Use the Installer.app. There's a new application called "MobileCast" that will allow you to download and listen to your podcasts without synching with ITunes. I think the app was just posted today.

    This app MobileCast did not work for me --- no sound. It appears to be "playing" but no sound... - A good concept, even downloads the graphic / logo of the podcast - but no sound? Anyone had success with this app?
