    • Download By Sort Order

      Could you add an option under Automatic Download to download episodes by the sort order of that particular podcast, instead of just the newest episode (default), or the oldest (if that option is selected).
      This would help me a lot because I tend to sort different podcasts differently,for example news podcasts I sort by the newest publication date whereas chronological podcasts(such as history podcasts) I sort by oldest publication, and it would be helpful if they were downloaded that way automatically.
      Both of those options are already covered by the app, however, every now and then I sort a podcast…

      • Mark individual episodes as read/deleted with right/left swipe.

        Right now it takes too much taping, menu walking to delete individual eposodes. Imagine you have 50 episodes and you need to keep 4? With swipe it is fast and easy.

        • Display "lyrics" or transcript

          For people who listen to audiobooks, it would be fantastic to show either the embedded mp3 "lyrics" or from the associated text file. They usually contain the audio transcription of the podcast, which is very useful.

          Also, some podcasts like http://drruscio.com/allison-siebecker-interview-sibo-episode-30/ or http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/allinthemind/the-mysterious-corpus-callosum/7377346, they have the transcript in their episode page. If PA can either fetch it or let us add the lyrics manually to be played automatically, it would make life much nicer :-)

          • MORE volume boost!

            I work in a very noisy environment and have to always use volume boost with my bluetooth headset. I know it could be even louder because when an alarm goes off the podcast gets even louder until I snooze or dismiss it. I would love an adjustable volume booster up to maybe 200% instead of the 20-30% it boost now.
            Thanks!
            Keep up the great work!

            • Voice notes

              Sometimes when I hear something interesting in podcast I'm writing it down to check it later. It is not possible while running or other activities. You might add something like recorder enabled through headphones remote controll which will stop playing podcast and enable recording to leave short note. After that places where user left note might be also marked on podcast timeline.

                Is like to see Podcast Addict added to the Google App Store as a Google Chrome add on. I want to be able to listen to my favorite podcasts while at work or home over the computer.

                • Snip out sections of audio to share with friends and family.

                  I often here parts of a podcast that I'd like to share, is it possible to add start and end bars to snip out sections? Sure it must be a lot more complicated. I'd like the option to send those snips along with the episode notes via the usual conduits.

                  • mark a episode as read if you start playing something els in the last five minutes of the podcast

                    Hi it would be good if an episode will be marked as read if you stop the episode within the last five minutes or start listening to something els. I don't care about something to removes outros because I don't want that. I want the app to understand that I am done with an episode if I start listening to something els or stooping the episode within the last five minutes. Long pressing to mark it as read doesn't solve this problem eather!

                    • Temporary/probation podcasts

                      is there a way to put newly added podcasts into temporary/probation status? The app would check back in after 30 days to ask the user if they want to keep subscribing to podcast or unsubscribe. This is because sometimes the podcast ended up not so great and I forgot to remove it, it gets cluttered up and then I have to re-listen to remember why it's there and it takes too much time.
                      Alternate idea would be me marking category as Temporary but that seems involved

                      • Shuffle That Maintains Episode Order

                        PA currently provides a shuffle function to play episodes from the playlist in random order. It would be nice to have an option to ensure that two episodes from a single podcast are shuffled "in order"

                        Example - I add episodes 1 and 2 of podcast A and episodes 4 and 5 of podcast B to my playlist. When I shuffle the episodes with this option enabled, episode 1 of podcast A will always be shuffled to an earlier position than episode 2 of podcast A, and episode 4 of podcast B will always be shuffled to an earlier position…

                          • Add a button to manually trigger the cleanup process

                            The cleanup process triggers only when a new download of the specified podcast is started. It would be nice to have a button or a menu option to trigger the cleanup for all / one podcast/s manually.

                                There are a number of intents available for Tasker and Llama (and similar apps) to control Podcast Addict: https://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/217903-how-to-control-podcast-addict-from-3rd-parties-app

                                With a couple of more intents it would be possible to implement an alarm clock trivially in Tasker or Llama.

                                  • Rearrange the episode options menu more logically (so it's not so easy to delete on accident)

                                    Currently, the "delete episode" option is right under "Add to playlist". I often listen to podcasts as I am walking, and it's easy to do a false move while I'm trying to add new episodes to my playlist and delete them instead, so I have to wait 'til I get home to redownload it.

                                    Perhaps the "delete" option should be placed more thematically (close to "unsubscribe", say) or close to less frequently used options (like copy url to clipboard or refresh content from RSS).

                                    Alternatively, you could make it possible to set manually deleted episoded to go to the trash.

                                    • add player shuffle button to playlist too

                                      this is not the same as: https://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/forums/211997-general/suggestions/6843916-offer-an-option-to-sort-playlist-by-shuffle

                                      I pushed Shuffle in my player a few months ago and forgot about it. I just spent a lot of time going through each podcast addict setting to find out why my playlist items are played in a random order. I did not think of checking the Player screen and did not see the Shuffle button there.

                                      It would be great if the same button would be on the Playlist screen, as thats the first place someone would look for a button randomizing the order of episodes played.

                                      • Podcast virtuel depuis réseau local

                                        Bonjour, si c'est possible je pense qu'il pourai êtres intéressant de pouvoir ajouter un dossier de Podcast virtuel depuis un réseau local (NAS, clée usb wifi,...). Pour pourvoir streamer celui ci en local.

                                        • Cap playback history.

                                          Cap playback history or allow us to delete episodes. No need to keep everything. Plus it uses storage space.
