    "Doesn't Work on Blackjack"

    August 29, 2007   |   By ClintonFoster

    Version: BlueCast 1

    Pros

    I bought my $120 bluetooth in hopes that I could use it to listen to all of my music and movies I have on my Samsung Blackjack. Nope. So I had to still use my corded headset to shackle myself to the phone for that. Then I was looking and found bluecast! I was in high hopes. Nope. Doesn't work. You can hear static in the headset but that's it. Back to the shackles for me.

    Cons

    Won't work with my Blackjack.

    "The most practical application I have ever bought"

    February 03, 2007   |   By tothemax1974

    Version: BlueCast 1

    Pros

    This product is awesome and by far and away the most practical application I have ever bought. Simply put this is a godsend for all salesmans who like listening to podcasts but also get many phone calls throughout the day. Just keep your bluetooth headset on all the time and Bluecast will take care of the rest. Listen to your podcast => you hear the beep for a call => bluecast places podcast on hold => take call => end call => bluecast continues podcast where you left off. Or listen on weekends doing chores around the house and take calls seamlessly when they come in.

    Cons

    None, awesome product!!! This probably allows me to listen to 33% more content in a single week.

    "Fantastic"

    July 17, 2006   |   By wkroberta

    Version: BlueCast 1

    Pros

    I can finally receive my calendar alerts via my bluetooth headset instead of alerting/annoying the world at large.

    Great Job!

    Cons

    If you forget to turn on your headset first the program just doesn't respond. Took me a few minutes to figure out why. A message that your headset is not available would be great.

    "A must have for road warriors, A++"

    February 25, 2006   |   By ConstructiveFeedback

    Version: BlueCast 1

    Pros

    This is my first review and I only signed up on download.com because I wanted to express how much this product has changed my life this week.

    First let me tell you how things usually are in my life.

    One word, choatic. I am addicted to podcasting and I am a road warrior who is always on a plane heading to some less than familiar city. My

    problems first started when I had a pair of stereo headphones with mic that came with my phone. The problem was, they kept getting tangled in a

    knot and I had to spend 5 minutes untangling them everytime I wanted to use them. It was also difficult pulling them off and putting them on as I

    conversed with people during the day. I guess I could have cut one ear or just bought a mono pair but that is besides the point.

    About 4 months ago I bought a couple pairs of retractable headphones after searching Amazon and the Net for over 2 hours. When they arrived one

    pair was immediately discarded because they were too bulky, the other pair was slim but only stretched 24 inches so I couldn't have them in and

    attached to my belt clip, I had to carry the phone. That blew!! In addition it didn't have a mic so I had to pull out the headphones when a call

    came in. This task was only complicated more while I was driving. In additon, as I was walking throughout the day I often inadvertantly got my

    hand stuck in the cord and practically ripped off my ears.

    Cons

    This week I happen to come across BlueCast and let me tell you, WOW!!! I didn't really have high hopes but then again I really had too many close

    calls with car and ear accidents not to try it. Well installing .NET Compact Framework 2.0 is about the only problem I had, and that is only

    Microsoft's fault. .NET Compact Framework is huge and my first install failed, then I couldn't uninstall it either and it wouldn't let me try to

    install again because it was complaining files were locked. I restarted my phone and got the install to work. Then I installed BlueCast without

    a problem, paired my bluetooth headset with my phone, turned on a podcast, turned on BlueCast, and low and behold, sound was coming out my

    Bluetooth headset. It was very audible too. FYI, I have a Cingular 2125 with a Motorola Headset. I then tried my MP3 ringtone and it actually

    sounded great. After I calmed down from thinking how cool this was I decided to call someone. Bluecast and Windows Media player paused

    themselves and then came right back as soon as my call ended. Well it seems like I have solved my problem, the only problem now is that I need a

    second Bluetooth headset because I use the headset for 5 hours a day including calls and it needs to be recharged every night. I already don't

    know how I lived with those headphones for song long. It is about time someone great an app with some value.

    Cons

    - Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 2.0 Install

    - You have to remember to turn off BlueCast when not using audio, otherwise it just wastes the headset battery. Maybe a timer could be added
