A) Add feeds from local file
This allows you to add feed from files on your sd card, the next screen will load a list of supported files (in the SDCRD/MyPOD directory)

select the file, and a list of feeds in the file will be presented, pressing a feed will take you to the edit feed screen.

There are two types:
1. Text files (.txt) : you can put RSS URLs in a text file one URL per line, optionally you can put the title on the line after the feed URL (title is overwritten when the feed id checked).

2. OPML files (.opml) : OPML is the standard way of distributing lists of feeds.

B) Search for a podcast
You can browse for a feed, enter a search term and hit

Browse for the RSS feed and load it. depending on the filename you will be prompted to add the feed.

If the feed loads in the browser it will look like just a bunch of unformatted text, you can use the to add the URL.

Doesn't work that well unless you know what you are doing. It's a work in progress...

You can also search for feed in the standard android browser so this functionality is a bit redundant.

C) Enter URL manually
This allows you to enter the RSS URL manually (or cut-paste it into Feed URL checkbox) - takes you directly to the edit feed screen.

D) Import from google reader
This is handy is you use Google reader (or Listen) enter you Google username and password in the popup and you will be shown a list of you reader feeds.

You password is only stored on the device in an encrypted form. It uses standard google web client login functionality.

E) Browse for RSS or OPML files
This is similar to the "Search for a podcast" functionality above. The button has some good web-based podcast directories for finding RSS feeds.

F) Enter OPML URL
You can enter an OPML URL directly here. (Maybe you have one on the clipboard)

G) Import from MyPOD on another device
This uses the MyPOD remote service to import feed from one device to another. MyPOD must be installed on both devices.

1. Start the remote service on the source device, (The one with the feeds on it)
2. Email yourself the remote URLs.
3. On the target device (the device to want to import to) open the email and click on the import link.
4. You can then add all the feeds at once or be taken to a list so you can just import the ones you want.

H) Export OPML
This exports you feed list to an OPML file. (SDCARD/MyPod/MyPOD_OPML_Export.opml) the process is not backgrounded, meaning you might get Force Close/Wait Messages (Just wait).

Known issues
1. Browsing for feeds does work but doesn’t work very well.

2. Export locks up while export is in progress. It's all good when the export finishes.
