  1. Category Playlist

    It would be amazing if we could set up a playlist of categories. So, for example, if I had 4 categories of podcasts, news, sports, tech, and entertainment, it would play the first podcast episode from each category, then rotate back up to the top of the list. This way, you never get two of the same show, or even two of the same type of show, in a row, with zero playlist management.

    • List and search bookmarks

      Currently you can only access the bookmarks inside its chapter. So I have to remember what chapter was bookmarked.
      It would be great if there's a list of bookmarks (and/or search box) feature.

      • Be able to organize the podcasts home by number of episodes unread

        So, I would like to enter the main screen and organize podcasts by number of unread episodes, instead of just newest or alphabetically. This would help me a great deal, with the podcast with the most episodes unread appearing first at the main screen

        • Add a playlist order that will alternate between all the podcasts regardless of how old they are

          This is hard to explain in a title. I want to listen to all my podcasts in chronological order. However, because podcast 1 started in 2011, and podcast 2 starts in 2013, I'm stuck listing to podcast 1 in bulk for a long time.

          What would be great to have is a sort feature that would play the oldest (or newest, if you prefer that) episode of podcast 1, then the oldest of episode of podcast 2 (then oldest of podcast 3 or 4,etc). Once it's cycled through all the podcasts, it would then start on the second oldest of…

            allow "shake to reset timer after player has stopped". for those of us who like to use podcasts to fall asleep and if wake up in night, we want to be able to restart the audio for approx 20 minutes without opening eyes. Replaying portions of same episode is ok since we aren't really listening, were zoning out sleeping.

              Just like the Google now integration. Where you can say play podcast car talk. It will instead be done via Google assistant/ Google home

              • Create Custom Lists

                I often use podcasts for research into specific topics so being able to create custom lists and manually add podcasts to it would be great. The podcast search feature is great but to have additional manual control would be great too.

                • Show downloaded podcasts first, then the feed in podcast listing

                  I want to listen to the old downloaded podcasts first. I set sort "from old to new". But I also want to see the new podcast in the feed first, and with this order set I have to scroll to the bottom to do it.

                  Please add an option show downloaded podcasts first with it's own order, then the podcasts in the feed with it's own order too.

                  Thanks

                  • Evenly space downloaded episodes throughout playlist

                    I'm one that regularly keeps 100+ (okay, 300+) episodes in my playlist. When I come across a new podcast I want to add to my routine, and I don't want to wait weeks or have them all grouped together, I currently have to drag the 10-20 episodes I've downloaded individually to evenly space them throughout my playlist, counting every 20 or 50 or whatever. This can be very time consuming, and annoying when my finger slips and I have to start over.

                    I'd love the ability to select multiple episodes in the playlist, then have a "distribute throughout playlist" option…

                      • Priority queueing based on queue score

                        Priority queueing based on queue score

                        I suggest an interesting variant of priority queuing,
                        based on both the priority and age simulataneously,
                        similar to one used in some P2P software with request queue management.

                        Podcast channels would be assigned priorities as until now.

                        But the queue position would NOT be like
                        sorted by priority, than by release_age.

                        It would be sorted by queue_score = priority_multiplier * release_age
                        where priority_multiplier = 2^(priority -1)

                        So 8(exactly) days old episode with priority 1 would have the same queue score and as
                        4(exactly) days old episode with priority 2, or
                        2 days old episode…

                          Currently (v3.25.2), when downloading an episode, only the Android download indicator (downward moving arrow) is shown in the status bar. This indicates that a download is in progress or waiting for an appropriate connection but gives no indication of download progress, if any.

                          Those of us on slow connections and/or downloading large episodes need to pull down the notification shade multiple times over the course of a download to check the progress, which is more inconvenient with large phones. For some podcasts, an episode can take half an hour or more to download over a slow connection. This adds to…

                          • share podcast list via www

                            Today I was asked for podcast recommendations and I thought it would be great if one could share the entire podcast list with the world.

                            Please consider implementing a feature where podcast addict would create a website with a list of epidodes in the app. It could look like the app to give users without the app the feel for it. Podcasts would be clickable and the link would send the user to podcast's website. An extra would be to also have a subpage for episodes with link to specific episodes.

                            The link could have shelf life and disappear after…

                            • Provide an option to automatically start timer upon playback

                              It would be great to have a "sticky" option for the timer i.e. have it automatically start upon playback. Used in conjunction with the Shake option, this would save having to set it each time. On another (audiobook) app I use, this feature comes in very useful as it ensures play continues as long as there's any movement; if not, then it stops and I don't miss great swathes of the book because I've fallen asleep or gone off to do something else.

                              • Have episodes marked as read be counted in the listening statistics

                                I recently moved to Podcast Addict from another app and I'm absolutely loving it.
                                However, there are podcasts that I fully listened to in the previous app which aren't counted in the listening statistics. Marking them as read doesn't add them to the total listening time. I could manually go through each episode and skip through it but obviously it would save a lot of time if marking a series of podcasts as read adds the total listening time of that podcast to the stats.

                                • Include a setting to automatically have the bookmark start x seconds before I pressed "add bookmark"

                                  Allow a global and per-podcast setting to automatically set a number of seconds which the bookmark would be set BEFORE I pressed the bookmark button. For instance, if I just heard something at 36:00 that I want to bookmark, by the time I know I want to bookmark it, 3-5 seconds will have gone by, so I have to press rewind, and THEN bookmark. It would be nice to allow a bookmark that included the small rewind automatically. :) Thanks again!!

                                    When adding a large number of audio books it would be useful to be able to specify the top level directory and have the program treat each subflolder as a separate book. A checkbox could be added to the options to enable it.

                                    • Option to skip arbitrary intervals

                                      Hi, I'd like an option to skip arbitrary intervals in an episode (configurable per podcast).
                                      I.e., if there's a fixed block (advertisement or whatever) from 20 to 40 sec in each episode, I'd like to skip it without missing the first 20 seconds.

                                      • Audio offset feature (bluetooth sync fix)

                                        Can you please implement a manual audio sync option whem using bluetooth to watch/listen to video podcasts? It would be great to have plus/minus buttons to fix the audio/video sync and have the app save that adjustment when connecting to the same bluetooth headphones in the future so you don't have to re-adjust the sync number every time you re-connect.

                                        • Rating a podcast subscription vs testing indivisible episodes

                                          So we're able to rate individual episodes on a start system based 1 - 5. How about rating the podcast om itself. Also, there are comments to be read, but nowhere to be found, is this intentional?
