I too am a Blackberry user, I use 'Podcaster' to subscribe to the audio content of the Office. It will download them ready for listening, It probably isn't as good as the iphone app, but it is quite satisfactory. Hope this is some help to you.

Unfortunately, I live in an area where Edge or less is all I can get so podcasts don't work so well. If I drive to the nearest town (about 30 miles away, then I have 3G.

Thanks Brynwinkle. Excellent idea. I will give it a try on my "podtrapper" app.

We have no immediate plans to place Divine Office on the blackberry, but lately we have seen greater demand so we are keeping an eye on it. The problem for us is the high cost of developing these applications and if they don't pay for themselves then they can hurt our ministry by depleting our limited funds.

I am a catechist and software developer from Lagos, Nigeria. If I could get an application specification, i could well go ahead and build a framework.

I realize there is a cost factor but I think if it were available more people would be interested. I have the storm because where I am Verizon is a much better carrier and I truly like my storm. Really would like to see this app Blackberry available.

I can't even access the prayers yet alone a podcast. The tabs show up but they don't seem active like they are on a computer. Any suggestions? Storm2

Any update on having the Liturgy of the hours on BlackBerry? I have a Playbook and would be convenient if I have it anytime on my tablet.

I am now able to get it easily by going to the browser to divinveoffice.org and downloading . Click on the hour you want and let it download. You have to use the little red "Download" under "Listen to Podcast of Article" I can now connect to Wi Fi in the house to down load. I can save it and use it when and where I want. Let me know how you make out.

Thanks Michael,
I also do that but we need to download everyday. I was just hoping that there's no need to do it everyday. Although I don't use the podcast. Thanks for your advise.

BlackBerry has made it very easy for developers to"port" their android apps to the PlayBook. I don't know all the costs involved but you would not have to start from scratch with app development.

Hello, we will surely look into getting our Android app to work with the PlayBook, however we are a little stretched at the moment so I cannot give any timeline on this one.
