New and improved search for 2.0

After some improvements, new features, (oops..did I say new features ;-) and bug fixes, RSSPlayer 2.0 is about to be submitted to Apple for approval. I would like to point out that the search has been improved, there are now seven different ways to subscribe to podcasts.
  • Search by Title
  • Providers
  • Most Popular
  • Top Rated
  • Recently Added
  • Suggested
  • Import by Url
If you are like me and like to listen to a variety of different podcasts, the suggestion search is great for discovering them.

When searching for podcasts, simply tap the title that interests you. The details page will appear, where you will see the number of subscibers, a short description of the cast, as well as the link for the feed. There is also a button titled Web Info, which takes you directly to the site. Simply tap "Subscribe",
which is located in the top right corner and well-la, your podcast is added to the favorites and starts to download immediately.

Using ITunes for your podcasts?
No problem. Just choose "Import URL", and go ahead
and enter the opml url to import your podcasts to RSSPlayer.
You also have the option of using the feed url to import your podcast.

Keep an eye out for the new updated version to be out in

  2. Here's some of my tag lines:
    Free yourself and ‘cast your Net
    Podcasts the way you want them

    RSSplayer – the only way

    where you want them
    when you want them

    RSSplayer – the only way

    RSSplayer – freedom to podcast

    But my main concern is the name - RSS is a very techie term - if I told a Joe Bloggs iphone/ipod user I think they would not be able to guess what the app does by the name. Even a techie might suggest it is an RSS aggregator.

    What was wrong with Podcaster - did apple force you to change it?

    How about:



    Cheers - keep up the great work
