XDA TV Official Podcast (and Windows App) Available Now!
Can’t get enough of XDA TV since its introduction earlier this year, or find yourself missing episodes and wishing there was an easier way to keep track of the latest upload from your favourite presenter? XDA member meltwater has been working hard on a solution, and it just might be what you’re looking for.
For those looking for a more convenient way to find out when a new episode of XDA TV is available, an official podcast has been set up, allowing the newest contribution to be beamed to you through an RSS feed and watched at will.
Going hand-in-hand with this great idea is meltwater’s Podcast Updater app for Windows PCs and Windows Mobile devices, which was created due to the developer’s wish to be able to watch the latest episode on a Windows Mobile phone without having to be connected to the internet. The app will scour the web to find any episodes you might have missed and will then give you the option to download them yourself.
Find out more about the Podcast and its corresponding app by visiting the project thread!
