Podcasts, or non-streamed webcasts were introduced in the early 2000 and got a firm grip on the public in late 2004, early 2005. Ever since, podcasts have been regularly utilized to bring popular media closer to the audience.
The main advantage of a podcast is the synchronization with the server. This way, the listener only downloads the latest files in the series, minimizing download size and waiting time before accessing the desired media. If you don't use the podcasts on your favorite news, music, radio, TV sites, then you should probably give it a try!
If you already do, PodBot could be the podcast manger that can help you keep up to date. It has a simple and accessible interface that allows you to create a podcasts list you want the application to keep track of.
You can add as many feeds as you desire by providing the URL addresses and saving them. This way, the entry is added to your podcast list enabling you to easily track it. The interface offers you the possibility to view all podcast and delete the ones no longer of interest for you.
Specify a local folder to save the podcasts to and press the download button to start checking for new files in the selected feeds. A download progress text box indicates the download status, providing you with a completion message after the download has finished.
If you were on a vacation and missed quite a few releases from your favorite podcasts and you don't have the time to listen to all the skipped content, you can always set the application to download only files published in the last few days by entering the exact number of days to go back.
So if you are a fan of podcasting, take PodBot for a spin and make things even simpler!
