A podcast catcher is a download manager and player of podcasts. A good podcatcher should be totally transparent, and once you have subscribed to your podcasts it should be automatically downloading new episodes in the background. This is what PodTrapper aims to provide for Blackberry devices.
New: It is now possible to do the downloading through your desktop regardless of carrier or device capabilities.
Simply install the "Podtrapper Desktop Downloader Setup.exe" application on your system.
Once it's installed and running a small icon will sit in your system tray. When you connect your Blackberry via USB (and maybe bluetooth?) the application will detect your it, and PodTrapper will use your computer's network connection for downloading.
Keep in mind that this isn't necessary for anyone with a wifi device or whose provider allows for unlimited file size for over the air downloads.
Here are some key features of "PodTrapper (BlackBerry)":
· Automatic downloading of new episodes via Wifi

· Reliable pause and resume of downloads when connectivity changes
· Built in keylock to allow for control of audio in your pocket
· Pauses for phone calls and resumes when completed

· BlackBerry OS 4.2 or later
