    I like MobileCast but i would like to request that someone in the community make one that is a better i really would like a feature where i could turn on my ipod and hit a button and go take a shower or something while it updates my podcasts for me, without sleeping

    also i would like it to download from sources based on settings, like newest 3 episodes or something

    if the author of MobileCast is around i would love if you could implement these features

    also a plain RSS reader would be neat too i dont have wifi at work and it would be nice to catch up on slashdot and other blogs i read during lunch

    There is an RSS reader called "MobileRSS"

    I agree, we do need a new podcast updater

    Also the new one should download them to the iTunes part of the iPod just like iTunes would

    im not worried about putting them into the itunesDB i just want them downloaded without much input from me
    i use linux as my main desktop and its a pain in the ass to have to switch os's just to sync my new podcasts every morning, its the only thing that keeps me using windows at all

    there is a webapp that has lots of podcasts, you dont download them, they just play them through your browser. Il try and find it. I think that mobilecast is good, it just lacks a few features that is needed really, i know what you mean.
