    • In case any of you don't know, Podcaster is an App Store app that allows you to download Podcasts directly into your device. It was also an App that was denied entry to the App Store because it did the same function as what the Podcast section of iTunes did.



    • It actually works quite well. Even has it's own directory where you can browse and download podcasts. Even allows for importing of OPML files (Files that have links to podcasts) from various places.

    • Its a really efficient app. A shame that they did not let this into the App Store. But he decided to distribute this App anyway though another method, which was really smart. This shows that you do NOT need to Jailbreak in order to have "App Store Apps". I would really like to see more Jailbreak developers distribute Applications like this, though I think it's limited to 100 people, I am very sure there is a way around that.

    • All he asks for is a 10 dollar donation if you can provide it.

    Off topic: You downloaded "The Game"... And kept it?

    Game?

    Also note, you don't HAVE to Donate the 10 dollars. He keeps all the versions people get on his Google Code page.

    The application that says "I Lost" (on the same line as "scramboni", "linerider" and "tris").

    It's cool you don't HAVE to donate, i might try and get it.

    No. He gives registers your device and you download his App + a Provision file that comes with it. Then you drag it into iTunes and sync it to your device. No Jailbreaking required.

    The application costs $10, you can't just choose to donate whatever you want. I am considering getting it, but the fact that it could be blacklisted at any time kind of makes the decision a bit harder. Otherwise I have been waiting for an app like this forever. I wish apple would actually allow good apps into the store instead of useless ones.
