Podcasting to mobile phones is possible with new software, Pod2Mob.

The beta software for Mac and Windows lets users stream audio files directly to their mobile phones using a computer.

The Pod2Mob application downloads updated podcasts on the go and streams them to an applet on the user's mobile phone. Content can be refreshed as often as desired, while transmissions are rated by listeners for quality and popularity.

The company says streaming the data requires far less memory than downloading the full audio file.

Co-founder Brad Zutaut said: "We built Pod2Mob so that people with the most basic handsets could start listening to the podcast shows they are hearing so much about."
