HSS on Android Smartphones

Anyone know how to get the Home Server Show podcast on an Android phone? I am now the proud owner of a HTC Incredible and I want to try using it for getting the HSS podcast. I know I can download the MP3 but I was hoping for something that is a little more automatic.

 

In the marketplace I found Google Listen and .Podkast. with the latter getting a lot of praise. It currently does not include HSS in it's list of channels. I have sent a message to the authors so maybe they will add it. Listen doesn't include HSS podcast either but I can't figure out how to request it be added (plus forums are moaning about lack of bug fixes by Google).

 

Anyone have any thoughts, ideas or other things they have tried?

I saw DoubleTwist in an Incredible forum so I did some checking on their forums. Doesn't look like the Android App is ready for primetime. Plus, I want to find something that will allow me to get the podcasts without having to sync with a cable.

I've been using podtrapper for quite a while now. I purchased it originally for my Blackberry, but there is an android beta version out with 30 day trail. Well worth the money and works great on my new Droid X. Auto download episodes, and can even set it to only download when wifi is available.

If you have listen installed, you can navigate to http://homeservershow.com/category/podcast in a browser and click on the HSS Podcast link under Subscribe and you will be prompted if you want to add feed to listen. Otherwise you could just add the url directly in listen as http://feeds2.feedburner.com/HSSPodcast and http://feeds.feedburner.com/byobpodcast.

 

Make sure you add the BYOB Podcast as well ;)

Burix - Thanks for the info. I accidently stumbled on how to use Google Listen this morning. I was simply going to go to the podcast and listen to the MP3 online and my browser prompted me if I wanted to complete the action using Internet or Listen. Was pretty simple to add the feed to Listen and now it is downloading the podcasts.
