"Useful if you're a programmer"
Version: gPodder 3.5.1
I was able to download version 3.5.1 and get it to work once.
I can't figure out how to complete the upgrade to 3.5.2
I can't figure out which podcasts downloaded this week vs last week
I can't find the files to move them to my mp3 player (which is where I listen to them)
I can't figure out this application. The user manual and help are written for programmers who want to modify the source code. I could get my subscriptions urls loaded, and it would download the latest podcasts. So it's fine if you just want to click on the results and play them on your PC.
The second time I logged into it I started getting a c:\... runtime error. So I attempted to upgrade to 3.5.2, which I was prompted to do when I dismissed the runtime error and the app started up. I downloaded the .gz file, but there are no instructions about what to do with it, and double-clicking it in Windows 8 just asks me what program I want to open the file with. I have no idea what a .gz file is! Where are the INSTRUCTIONS?
I had to hunt around to find the files it downloaded, and then couldn't figure out which were the latest downloads except by right-clicking on each and every file, looking at the properties, and looking for the date created. With 40-50 files, that's way too tedious. I gave up. It's way too complicated and non-intuitive for me. I'm over 50, but I've spent 30 years of my work life in front of computers. It shouldn't be this difficult to use.
