    Got it in iTunes OK. (Also FYI, PodTrapper didn't pick it up at all.)
    Yea man was doing the same thing, i think it stopped around 12 also, then I closed it out and opened it back up and started downloading again. Got to about 40 or so and did it again. I restarted the app or went back to the main menu and refreshed the podcast feed and went back and started downloading again. Got to around 50 something and did the same thing. After a few more times of doing the refresh or restart the app I finally got it downloaded. I thought I was the only person having this problem.

    When mine stopped I tried refreshing the feed SEVERAL times without any restart at all. I even add the podcast again, had two copies of the same thing, but no help. Stopped and restarted the ap several times too. Only thing I didn't try was clearing cache and/or rebooting but everything else was working OK.

    Will report back later - maybe it'll just take off and finish the load.

    Deleted that specific (partial) podcast and restarted - it hung this time at 7.8mb. Funny, it loaded on my 8230 (wi-fi only) without a hitch. I'll try again later when I can delete it. I don't get the delete option on that file, I guess, until it quits trying. This has certainly taken a toll on my battery today though.

    Had to give up. My battery was at 20% - gotta go a little longer before recharge. Running on minimum aps right now. :d

    Got it on the 4th try!

    I'd be interested to have Chris, the author of this ap, try episode #15 to see if he has any problem DL-ing it if he has time. There's no way to know if the ap has an issue.

    FYI to Chris, I haven't had any problems with my other "regular" podcast aps.

    I guess it could be an error handling situation or something like that. Error handling failures used to cause problems in when I was developing data transmission software. Just a thought.....

    This weeks show was a bit longer than the last few (we added a few new features) and I believe Cherri used a different method to lower the bit rates to try and fix some QC issues...don't know if that was part of the issue or not.

    I don't know either, Gary, but my 8320 DL'd it without a problem via wi-fi. Once the 8330 was successful so did it. I just had to try 4 times to get it.

    I don't know how many besides Josh and me had a problem - I don't know how many users are still using this ap and/or how many of those use it to listen to the PS podcast. It may be a small issue or, if we're the only two to use it for PS podcast, it could be a big one.

    I downloaded and tried it out with most of my regular podcasts, and they all play well:

    Bill Moyers Journal
    NOW on PBS
    The Brian Lehrer Show
    The Leonard Lopate Show
    APM: Marketplace
    APM: The Writer's Almanac
    NPR: Fresh Air
    60 Minutes
    CBS Sunday Morning

    I didn't have any problems playing any of these podcasts, but I did notice something odd: with the exception of perhaps two of them, while the files played to completion, the file sizes indicate that they weren't completely downloaded. For example, if a file was 2.5MB, it would only download 2.3MB, and this happened to nearly all of them.

    On a features front, I would like to see the addition of the ability to edit the podcast titles, and perhaps an option to download all the casts in a particular feed. I was able to download the podcasts on both the standalone 3G network and on WiFi, both with no problems at all.

    On the whole, however, very nice work!

    I wonder if the whole cast was DL'd and it just didn't indicate it. I didn't try to play to see if it was all there. I guess it COULD be a DL indicator problem.

    I suspect that's exactly what the problem is.

    As I said, the program(s) played to completion in spite of seemingly incomplete downloads. The feeds that did complete stated as much, and showed a green checkmark next to the file size.

    Thanks, Doc. I should have tried that to see if it would play to the end. It was just confusing - we all like to have the number be correct, I guess.

    No problem. I hope I wasn't coming off as being picky or ungrateful for the efforts.

    Not at all, Doc! I appreciate the info. I was the one being picky IMO.

    BTW, it appears based on you podcast list that you and I have some common interests in podcasts, etc.
