    I LOVE Dr. Podder but my Pre- has died and I've been "forced" to enter the Android ecosystem with the Motorola Photon. Oh, how I miss so many things about my Pre especially Dr. Podder! Is there an equivalent Android app that would allow me to stream podcasts from my own server AND remember where I left off between listening sessions? Streaming from my PC is not an option for me. Thanks for your help!

    You could look into using the built-in Google Listen, it's not as nice DrPodder, but nothing is.

    Pick up a Pixi+ or a Veer just for that!

    ~ $37 no contract Verizon one

    ~ $76 no contract unlocked GSM one

    and Veer's on eBay will set you back about $150 ATT no contract locked

    I went through the same Dr. Podder withdrawal as you are now.

    The short answer is no, there is nothing as good as Dr. Podder available on android. Some of that is due to the developer being great at what he does, and some is due to the different layout that android offers for apps.

    But, Beyond Pod is a good alternative. I have gone ahead and upgraded to the paid version, but the free version is also very good.

    BeyondPod offers a lot of the same functionality of Dr. Podder. It isnt quite as easy to use, but it is the best I've found on Android. Make sure you check out the Settings for Beyond Pod because it offers a lot of functionality that is not apparent at first glance.

    Thanks for the recommendation but I don't see how I can use Google Listen to stream my own podcasts from my server. Maybe I missed something.

    Pardon my ignorance, but why must the podcasts be streamed from your server? Why not let your device steam them directly from their respective sources?

    Or, let your device download them ahead of time...
