Migrate BB -> Android

New postby Chris M on Sat Jan 29, 2011 8:36 pm

Used podtrapper for over a year on my Storm 2, until it (thankfully) died, giving me the excuse I needed to go android.

Bought it for the android, but I'm wondering if someone could give me some advice on how I can get my 30+ podcast feeds migrated.

I took the time to add them to Google Reader, as part of testing Google's (crap) podcast app. I want to avoid more copy paste.

Can I:

1. Point it to my "Listen Subscriptions" Folder in Google Reader? That would be a killer feature.
2. Copy the configuration files from my Blackberry (still powers on, can connect as disk) onto Android?
3. Export my podcasts as XML/OPML and import them into podtrapper?
4. C/P my feed URLS into a text file and import them into podtrapper?
5. Anything other than c/p URL's on my Android into the software?

I never did this but I think the best way to do it would be to open PT on your bb then click menu, exit, that will create a backup of all your settings, now take the whole podtrapper file from your bb sd card and put it on your android phone, next open PT on your android phone go to menu, settings, general setting, restore from back up, and point it to the podtrapper folder and select the highest version.

Yep, MrFun has the easiest way. You copy your entire PodTrapper folder over, then switch your android storage folder to that folder. From there you can restore from backup. You may want to back up any PT_B files on your sd card, just to make sure that if anything goes wrong you can properly restore.

It would be great if there could be some sort of feed importer built in. It's easy to export from the BB, but there doesn't seem to be a way to import on Android. clicking on the xml file in Gmail loads PT, but that's about it...
