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!

DoggCatcher price cut, all proceeds go to Japan quake fund this weekend


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.

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.

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.
