    I'm trying to use google listen on my droid 2 with no success.


    I get a message that states

    "Listen requires a gmail account to sync with reader.google.com. Please add a new account in system preferences."

    I'm not even sure exactly what this message means. But when I press the back button it simply exits the google listen program.

    Any tips? Anyone get it working on the droid 2 or X?

    I want to listen to podcasts at work.

    That's what the error message seems like its saying... If you got a gmail account then i have no idea why its doug that. I have never had a problem with google listen. Just in case check within the app if you need to sign in there... i think you do.

    Bumping this thread up.....

    I am having the same problem. I have a gmail acct all set up. Running 2.2 on the Droid Incredible, and just downloaded Listen.

    I can hit the magnafying glass and search and then when I try to go back to Listen "Home", it pops up the message again.....

    I went back to the android market and looked at some comments. Seems like a lot of people are having the same problem with 2.2.

    I uninstalled it for now.

    Have you gone online and actually set up a Google Voice Account? That is a separate account from Gmail.

    You need to do that, as well as download the app to your phone.

    I have a google voice account. Makes no difference.

    Listen doesn't have anything to do with voice.

    Same issue for me since I upgraded to Froyo FRG01B. I'm on a Droid 1. I just gave up and uninstalled it finally. hoestly I havent spent much time troubleshooting it, but it worked fine on 2.1.

    Yeah, realized my confusion of the two later that day. Sorry for the pointless response.

    Anyone found a fix? I have the Droid Incredible and I upgraded to Android 2.2 last week. It broke all kinds of apps. This is one of them.

    there is a fix.

    uninstall listen. Reboot your phone.

    goto Redirecting

    download listen 1.1.1.apk

    then install.

    this worked for me and a number of other people.
