    Hi - Having had my phone for all of three days I suspect this is a stupid question but here I go...

    I regularly download Podcasts which I then play as MP3's on my current HTC TYTN2. Rather than download to the laptop then transfer to the new Desire I would rather download directly to the Desire BUT when I go to the Podcast I want - on the BBC site, the instructions of 'Right Click and Save as Target' don;t apply. If I click that instead it simply plays the Podcast - which I dont want.
    What I really want is to be able to download the Podcast/Mp3 directly to my phone SD card - is there an app which would help or am I forced to download via the laptop?

    Have you looked into podcatchers yet?

    Listen - Free
    Beyondpod - $7
    Doggcatcher - $7

    Although you now have a solution, to answer your original question, a long press on the link should provide you with a right click like menu where you can save among other things.

    I am even greener than RoyC - I have yet to purchase my Android :).

    I am a podcast addict, and currently listen to them on an iPod. It looks like there are podcatchers that will work for the android, but one question that I have is whether or not you can configure the podcatcher to only download the podcasts when there is a WiFi link available, rather than using the broadband connection.

    So I'm all for having a podcatcher on my actual devise, but sometimes I've already downloaded them on my computer, and I'd like to transfer them onto my android. I have an HTC Incredible. Where would I put podcast files so that they're viewable in Google Listen?

    Listen will only play podcasts it has downloaded, it's not a general purpose media player.

    Just transfer them to a folder, music for example, and use the built in music player.

    Man! I wish Listen had a widget like HTC's stock media player!
