Add your podcast to our directory

I added a page so that users and podcast owner can suggest a podcast to add to our directory and hence RSS Player app search. To do this, simply go to and enter a url. We crawl every night so it should be up quickly.

RSS Player Opml Creator

I have been having a lot of requests from users asking me what the easiest way to export all the podcasts from iTunes and import into RSS Player. Until now, you had to export from iTunes as an opml file, upload to a public server, then enter url into RSS Player to import. As you can see, this method was slow, hard to explain and problematic.

This brings me to the program I just created to help automate this process. The app creates an opml file from your iTunes podcast list and then gives you a tinyurl you can enter into RSS Player. This is not the ideal implementation and i'll keep working on it. ultimately, my goal is to import directly the RSS Player from this desktop app. That is coming in the upcoming weeks. I will also put out a mac version. If you have any questions, please email me.

RSS Player Opml Creator is available now at

RSS Player 1.3 update almost ready

I have made several small and several large improvements to RSS Player 1.3. First, the app will now pause if you unplug the headphones so please stop asking me to do this :-). Secondly, we have improved the show notes browser to make it larger and more friendly.

Finally, we made a way to share with friend using twitter or email. You tweet gets posted to your twitter feed along with a url to a more detailed iphone friendly web page that will allow anyone to enjoy the feed you are sharing.

There are still several small issues so I want to fix those before I push the update. I will try my best to finish by tomorrow.

If you want to try RSS Player 1.3 Build 1, then here is a link (Link good for 2 days)

RSS Player as guest on iPhone Alley Podcast

On Sunday, I had a chance to be on the iPhone Alley Podcast and talk about RSS Player among other things. The recording went really well and lasted for about an hour. I had a surprise when I saw the guest list and it included Cali Lewis. iPhone Alley is about current tech news with interesting opinions from Michael Johnston and others.
