Downloading enabled

This is the master control for all download activity in PodTrapper. If this is set to 'No' PodTrapper will not attempt to download anything over any mechanism.

Allow downloads over wifi

This settings allows you to specify whether PodTrapper should attempt to download over wifi if it's available.

Allow downloads through desktop

This setting controls whether PodTrapper will attempt to download via the Desktop Downloader or via your BES via serial passthrough.

Allow downloads over cellular

This setting controls whether PodTrapper will attempt to download over the cellular network via your data plan. Note: This is only recommended for those with truly unlimited data plans. Downloading podcasts over the cell network can easily consume 10's of gigs of data.

Only download when charging

This setting tells PodTrapper to only download when its charging, that way you don't have to worry about it consuming your battery while on the go.

Download more episodes after deleting

If enabled this setting will make PodTrapper attempt to keep as many episodes as your "Unfinished number to keep" after you've deleted an episode. After deleting one, PodTrapper will mark the newest undownloaded and undeleted episode for download.

A note about downloading

PodTrapper prioritizes its connections in this order:

  1. Desktop
  2. Wifi
  3. Cellular

So, if you're connected to more than one enabled mechanism it will try them in that order. Note, though, that if one mechanism reports failure the next will be attempted. For example, if you are connected to a wifi access point, but that access point rejects connections to a particular server, it will then attempt to download over the cell network if that mechanism is enabled, even though you are connected to a wifi network at the time.
