gPodder on Maemo 4 gets a facelift

I finally got around to redesign parts of the dialogs in gPodder for Maemo 4, because some dialogs were still not really finger-friendly and usable. It's still a work-in-progress, but it looks really slick already and the whole UI is completely finger-friendly.

Let me show you some highlights (gPodder 0.17.0 is the current version available in Maemo Extras and "some old version" is from April 2008):

Pretty icons and slicker UI for the main window (compared to the same window in gPodder 0.17.0 and some old version).

The updated podcast directory dialog allows easy discovery of new content (compared to the same dialog in gPodder 0.17.0 and some old version).

The new episodes dialog shows more text and has finger-friendly rows (compared to the same dialog in gPodder 0.17.0 and some old version).

You will be able to filter the episode view and only show downloaded or unplayed episodes (a new feature!).

The complete set of screenshots can be found on Flickr.

Thanks a lot for staying on top of developing GPodder. Podcast downloading and listening is what I use my N800 for 90% of the time, and Gpodder is great at keeping me stocked up.

Have you thought about implementing this on any other platforms other than Maemo (or linux) including desktop OSes?

Best of luck and keep up the good work.

Hi! I've been a GNOME enthusiast for a couple of years and now I'm also very excited about the new Nokia N900 and Maemo 5. I'd like to buy it in the near future, when it hits the stores. So here's my question: is it going to be a gPodder version available for Maemo 5? Thanks in advance!

txangor: Sure thing. gPodder is already available for Maemo 5, although it still needs some UI love. See this thread on for screenshots and feedback of users who actually used gPodder on a N900.
