I suggest you ...

Exclude some podcasts from sync to reduce traffic => Some podcasts are refreshed only once a week/month

It would be awesome if one could modify the time for manual refreshing for every podcast separately. There are some podcasts with >500 episodes which upload new casts only once a month. So it is useless to refresh them once or twice a day (not by automatic refresh [I don't like that] but my manual refreshing) when I want to refresh my daily casts (like news or daily documentaries). So it would be perfect, to modify the duration for refreshing like "everytime when refresh manually [standard]", "once a week [with starting date or weekday]", "once a month [with starting date]" and "every `x` days [with starting date; 999 equals 'never refresh']".

I so far don't know any competing app that supports this feature :).

        BTW the app checks if the RSS file content has been modified since last update before retrieving it (using http header). So monthly podcasts with 500 episodes are only refreshed once the RSS feed has been modified

        Podtrapper has the ultimate ability to do this and much more although it doesn't play streams and the podcast database has recently gone away. It is an old app that hasn't been updated for years but it's the ultimate in configurability. I am hoping that Addict will eventually become as usable as Podtrapper.

        salut, juste une petite proposition pour cette super app': à quand un icône full HD?!
