Download podcast directly on your iPhone.... WAIT A MINUTE!
Remember Episode 95 when we talked about the downloading podcast directly on your iPhone feature which is expected to be released with firmware 2.2? Apple released the much awaited iPhone firmware 2.2 update on 20th Nov. I installed it on my iPhone the moment I book out from my reservist.
The first feature I tried is the podcast downloading feature. That is one of my biggest wishlist for iPhone. So I went to the iPod applications, click to 65 bit podcast (Shameless plug) and at the bottom of the page is feature to “Get More Epsiodes…”
I click on it and the iPhone switches over to iTunes and…… *BANG*.
“Cannot Connect to the iTunes Store. The iTunes Store is not supported in this country”
Brilliant. Simply brilliant. Which means those who are living in countries without iTunes Store (like Singapore) still will not be able to download podcast directly from their iPhone. Let’s hope its just a minor oversight.
