RRHello AAA,
There was a user who wrote in on episode
107 who used Doggcatcher that wanted to play videos files as audio.
Doggcatcher already has a feature to do this. If you press and hold on
an episode of a video podcast an option to "play as audio" will come up.
It will continue to play after the phone screen locks. I've had no
problems doing this on my Galaxy S3.

Thanks for the shows.

What is Ting?

Ting is no BS mobile service.

Ting is an MVNO (reseller) of the nationwide Sprint network.
http://allaboutandroid.ting.com0:05:00

.

How is Ting different?

No contracts or ETFs: Truly and completely contract-free; no early termination fees or other BS.

No bundling or ride-along services: Choose from XS through XXL service levels for voice minutes, text messages and megabytes of data, all billed separately.

No overage charges or penalties: If you use more than you thought you would, just pay for what you used.

Credits on unused service: If you use less than you thought you would, Ting drops you down to the level you hit and credits the difference to you on your next bill.

.

No add-on charges: Voicemail, caller ID, tethering, hotspot, three-way calling, call forwarding and other features are all part of service; no add-on charges.

No mysterious line items on your bill: Ting charges for what you used plus whatever taxes we're legally required to collect. No hidden charges, recovery fees or other BS.

Unlimited devices on one plan: Have as many devices as you want on one plan sharing pooled minutes, messages and megabytes. Each device on a plan costs a flat $6 per month.

A powerful online account control panel: Take control of your account, your usage and bills in the powerful online control panel.

No-hold customer support: Call us at 1-855-TING-FTW anytime between 8am and 8pm EST and a real person will pick up the phone.

Excellent online support: http://help.ting.com has active customer forums, a simple and powerful help ticketing system, video tutorials, video Start Up Guides and much more.

.

How Ting works:

First you purchase your mobile device from Ting which you will receive in 2-5 business days. Then you activate your device with Ting and have the option to select a new phone number or port an existing one. Finally you select the monthly minutes, messages and megabytes plans that you think represent your usage and Ting will bill you at the beginning of your payment period but you will be charged or credited in the following pay period based on what you actually used.

[4] The Korea Times reports that LG is working with Google on a Nexus sequel looking to repeat the Nexus 4 magic and is already Presumably another phone beyond that Optimus G sequel we've been promised, there's no word yet on whether we'll see any new Google-branded hardware at this year's I/O event. We reached out to an LG spokesperson, who told us that it doesn't comment on rumor and speculation, although the meeting wasn't all about the Nexus series. LG is also apparently looking for more cooperation with Google on TVs and other future hardware -- Glass was apparently mentioned in passing.
[5] Nook HD and HD+ are closed no more! Barnes & Noble is giving consumers access to Play through a software update in the near future. No details on the date of that update as of yet.
[6] Today through May 12 (yes, that's Mother's Day), the 7-inch Nook HD is available starting at $149 for the entry-level 8GB model (normally $199) and the 9-inch NOOK HD+ starts at a mere $179 for the 16GB model (normally $269). Both products offer expandable memory via a microSD expansion slot.

[8] Folks using Viber's iOS and Android apps will see many changes to the overall user experience in version 3.0: * added support for video messages * a novel voice engine to help improve call quality * the ability to check contacts' online status * a completely redesigned interface. Meanwhile, the newly minted Viber Desktop features video calling and seamlessly integrates / syncs with the mobile offerings -- which makes things like being able to transfer ongoing voice calls between devices possible.
[9] Viber allows you to text, call, and send photos and video messages worldwide for free to over 200 million users using 3G or Wifi. Viber is available for Android, iPhone, Blackberry, Windows Phone and many more devices and platforms. On Viber, your phone number is your ID. The app syncs with your mobile contact list, automatically detecting which of your contacts have Viber.
