Version 1.1: What's new

  • The Mobiedge Newspaper is now not only an RSS reader, but also a podcatcher, i.e. it supports audio podcasting;
  • You can download audio files via either your mobile phone or a PC Internet connection;
  • You can use Mobiedge Newspaper Bridge to convert the audio files into AMR format to save lots of downloading time and memory space;
  • The file loading speed has been improved for more than 50%;

Scenario 1: Be tired of reading news/blog feeds on a teeny tiny screen? Well close your eyes, relax, and listen...
Because of the large size of audio files, a traditional podcatcher will be a high capacity MP3 players (e.g. an iPod) or a desktop media player. To solve the audio file size problem, Mobiedge Newspaper v1.1 comes with a desktop helper application called "Mobiedge Newspaper Bridge". You can use Mobiedge Newspaper Bridge to download huge audio files via your PC Internet connection and convert them into AMR format. AMR (Adaptive Multi-Rate) is an industrial standard of audio encoding which is broadly used in today's telephone products. An audio file can be encoded into AMR format with much smaller size while keeping fairly good audio quality. For example, a 5.9Mb CBC Radio podcasting file "www_cbc_ca_quirks_media_2005-2006_mp3_qq-2005-11-05a_mp3.mp3" (64kbps mono MP3, 12 minutes and 53 seconds) can be converted into a 491Kb file in AMR, i.e. the size is reduced by more than 10 times. By using AMR converter we can make it viable for a mobile phone to support podcasting which used to require more than 100Mb of memory space.
