Over on All About Symbian Steve Litchfield wrote an excellent post how to subscribe to specific podcast without typing in their URLs. I think most of you know the problem when you try typing letter for letter and in the end you made a mistake anyway. So, Steve wrote a tutorial, which is rather for newbies, that shows how to use the copy and paste function to handle this task. This is a really simple and fast way but I know another way to do this in a cooler manner.

First ensure you have a barcode reader installed on your phone, for example on your Nokia 5800. If you cannot find the barcode-reader you can download the barcode-reader here ( use this version for the 5800). Now go to your computer, copy the URL you want to subscribe and open Nokia’s mobile codes site.

There you can create a 2-dimensional code in an instance. Just paste the URL into the web address field.

Now open the barcodereader and point your phone on the barcode.

Your barcode-reader should read the barcode and show you the link.

Once you done that open the Podcasting application, select podcasts, options, new podcast and paste the URL.

That’s all! You’ve successfully subscribed to a podcast in just some clicks or touches.
