Introducing Podcatcher for Nokia N9

Posted by kypeli

Your intelligent podcast client.

Get it now!

Podcatcher for N9 is available from Nokia Store now! There is a free, lite, version that is limited to three subscriptions only. If you like Podcatcher for N9, I hope you will purchase the full version that has unlimited subscriptions. Links to Nokia Store are below. Source code for Podcatcher for N9 is available online too at http://projects.developer.nokia.com/hpodcatcher.

So what is it...?

Podcatcher for Nokia N9 is a new podcast client that I have been working on for the past couple of weeks. Because I am an active podcast listener, I found the lack of a podcast client somewhat of a loss when I received my Nokia N950 developer device. There are great podcast client out there that will definitely hit the Nokia N9 via Nokia Store sooner or later, but I wanted to create a client that would fit my podcast subscription and listening needs and that would run great on the Nokia N9. I took some inspiration from previous podcast clients that I've used on Android handsets and I now want to present the results. Finally,Ā I wanted to make the performance of my podcast client as good as possible. The backend of Podcatcher for Nokia N9 is written in C++. The UI utilizes native widget thanks to Qt Components and Qt Quick, while the data is cached into a local SQLite database. This all ads up to some great performance. PleaseĀ have a look at the screenshots and the video below. I hope you like them!
