I download a lot of podcasts. I use iTunes to manage them on my “junk PC” (the one I install the rubbish, but necessary software like Real Player and iTunes, for syncing iPods etc).
However on my laptop I don’t want to be installing iTunes, and a quick search on Google left me thinking there weren’t many lightweight solutions out there for just subscribing to podcasts. Sure a general RSS reader would keep me up to date, but it wouldn’t download the files.
I decided to write my own bit of software, which I’ve aptly named “Podcast Tool”. It basically lets you subscribe to, and download podcasts, remembering which podcasts you’ve listened to. I’m putting it up here for anyone to test and give feedback.
If you too download a lot of podcasts, then please give it a test.
