The team behind DoggCatcher, the popular Android podcast player, have cut the app's price to $2.99 (£1.84 in the UK) this weekend, and are donating all proceeds from app sales during this time to the Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Fund. This is a great way to get hold of one of the best podcast catchers for Android at a reduced price, while helping those in need following the natural disasters in Japan last Friday, so it's definitely worth a look.  But hurry, the weekend is almost over!

Easily my most used app. Well worth that price.

I almost bought it, actually I did buy it. But it wouldn't download, so I canceled the purchase, then was going to rebuy it when I noticed that it had permission to use account permissions or something. I don't want this thing purchasing things without my permission.

Uses Google account credentials to connect to Google Reader and import feeds. Much safer than using and storing your username and password.

Has anyone tried both this and PodTrapper, and have an opinion about how the two compare?

I have not tried podtrapper but doggcatcher is great!

It hung on authorizing my google account purchase or whatever, for about 5-10 mins, but then finally downloaded. It's nice. UI is kind of irritating at times, but so far it seems to be pretty functional. I've got an HD (337MB) Video podcast downloading right now on wifi that I think will seriously take about 2 or 3 hours to fully download...kind of sad about that but may have nothing to do with the app and a lot to do with just my connection and it being an HD video. Who knows. Not I.

Missed it D: How late did AC post this, I've been waiting for this app to go on sale for a while now ):

Jonno says:

I missed the sale window too, but am considering full price. Is this app drastically better than Google Listen? I've used Google Listen and was not pleased how it doesn't find too many updates. If it's that much better then maybe I'll go with DoggCatcher.
