Default Get Seedpod Mobile Free, Offer Ends Today

"SeeqPod Mobile brings Playable SearchTM to Windows Mobile powered phones and devices (and the upcoming Windows App Marketplace). Now you can use SeeqPod's award-winning* Biomimetic Search & Discovery technology to find playable search results, and Wikipedia articles all from your phone! Get instant playable access to SeeqPod's ever-growing and daily updated archive of Featured PodLists! Experience it all with a wide variety of color themes and one of the most amazing and gorgeous media players ever, with changeable skins in a range of styles."

I'll be honest, I'm not entirely sure I've wrapped my brain around exactly what this program does - biomimetic search and discovery? It seems like a search engine that focuses on music, podcasts, video, and other forms of media content. Well, for this weekend only (so the offer ends today), the program is free rather than $9.95 USD. What the heck - grab it now and figure it out later. ;-) The software will work on any device running Windows Mobile 6 or higher, whether that's Windows Mobile Professional or Windows Mobile Standard (I suspect Classic is supported as well).

I don't really quite get the program either, I think because of how they named it combined with minimal explanation of the "biomimetic" functionality. I looked up the term and the definition of it doesn't seem to apply to any of the program's features

Being as it's free, I want to like it... but... Navigation is rather quirky, definitely requires a stylus -- some attempts at fingerability were given here and there, but have the stylus handy for all those tiny little buttons. The keyboard doesn't auto-appear when a text window comes up -- you have to manually bring it up.

I've found while the search box asks for 'song or artist', you can search by pretty much anything: genre, radio station name, etc. You can't advance to a different position in a track, it can only be played from start to finish. Some of the playlists I started were over an hour long -- you're stuck listening to all of it.

As the documentation states, you must use a highspeed connection. Streams worked fine via WiFi, but when I tried them with my T-Mobile EDGE connection, it didn't play well at all -- stuttering, rebuffering, unusable on EDGE.
