Chapter 2. Jumping In > Podcast aggregators (the software)

Podcast aggregators (the software)

The software that goes out and grabs podcasts for you is known as an aggregator. An aggregator scours the Web for the exact kind of content (podcasts) you have told it to look for. Many of these programs will goout and get the material at night (or whenever you tell it to), delivering the content to your desktop, iPod, or other MP3 player while you sleep. Because many broadband Internet connections are in an always-on state, aggregator software takes advantage of this situation, grabbing content around the clock.

Aggregators are available for Macintosh computers, Windows PCs, Unix/Linux systems, and handheld devices such as PDAs and SmartPhones.
