  1. Add a Podcast Network to the Browse Podcast Networks Section

    I am a member of the Fatecrafter Studio Network and I was requesting for us to be added to the Podcast Network Section. Xavier suggested posting here to let people vote on it.

    Fatecrafters is an audiodrama network that features some of the top audiodrama podcasts: Atheist Apocalypse, Audioblivious Productions, Diary of a Madman, The Drift and Ramble Podcast, Lake Clarity, Subject: Found, Pulp-Pourri Theatre, Rex Rivetter: Private Eye, Spines, and The Tunnels, as well as a couple more that are in the preliminary joining processes. All of us are on different hosts, as we are all independent podcasts, and…

    • Allow for full automatic backups to cloud storage at regular intervals

      Thanks to Google's backup systems, if my phone someday decides to go for a swim or the like, I know I will be able to recover almost all my data up to the crash. This app is the one major exception. In order to fix this, the backup system needs three improvements:

      1.) The option to automatically back up my full data, rather than just the OPML file.
      2.) The option to use cloud storage as a backup location, rather than just the device.
      3.) The option to set an automatic backup at a regular interval, rather than only when…

      • Add episode flag 'ignored'

        I suggest you add an episode flag 'ignored', which you can use to mark episodes you aren't interested in. These don't show up in the unheard episodes count, but you distinguish them from the ones you have heard. This is especially useful for factual podcasts with one theme per episode or interview podcasts, where you are only interested in certain episodes.

        • Only keep X most recent episodes downloaded / Delete least recent, downloaded episode

          The app should have the option to automatically delete the least recent episode currently downloaded to make room for new episodes as they become available when the user has defined a maximum number of episodes to keep downloaded.

          Current behaviour when using automatic downloads of episodes in Archive mode, used in conjunction with the "Keep at most" setting in Automatic cleanup, results in new episodes to not be downloaded if the user defined limit of episodes to keep is already reached. If the user then manually downloads the latest episode a seemingly random downloaded episode from the podcast is deleted…

          • Longer episode titles

            The titles of episodes need a second line because one line is not enough

            • Skip segments based on unique sounds

              Some of the podcasts I listen to put their intro music partway into the episode, after they've set the "hook" for the listener. I'd like to be able to define the theme music itself as something to be skipped, so as soon as the player recognizes the theme, it skips ahead to the end of the theme music. Or, since a lot of podcasts delineate their segments with predetermined sounds, it would be cool to be able to define each segment by its intro, and then decide which segments to listen to, or skip.

              • Add "2" as an option for "number of downloaded episodes to keep"

                When listening with archive mode and automatic downloads, this is the ideal number: That'd be ideal for me: One I'm currently listening to, one ready in case the same podcast is next in the sort order. I sometimes have a few different old podcasts going at once, and I'd prefer to use 33% less space.

                • Allow a high priority podcast to take over what is "Now Playing".

                  I listen to a short daily news podcast each morning. I'd like to see a feature where when a new episode of that podcast is published, not only will it move to the top of the playlist, but when i press "Play" in the widget or on a Bluetooth device or whatever, that podcast brings playing, and any in progress podcast is paused and will be resumed after the high priority podcast finishes.

                    You can already do this, by sorting your playlist by priority and then enabling Settings/Playlist/Play from the top.
                    That way the app will always play the episode with the highest priority when the current one ends.

                  • Pre-Populate the Name String in "Override Podcast Name"

                    I typically just want to eliminate leading "The" + "A" + "An" words in order to have a sane alphabetical sort. But I'm currently forced to re-enter the rest of the (sometimes •long•) title string.

                    ALTERNATIVELY:

                    Podcast Addict could (a la iTunes) ignore leading articles like these.

                    Thank you!

                      Is it possible to add a sorting option by played time (total time - remaining time). So I can sort first the episodes already started. Thanks!

                      • Add a "Catch Up" feature for downloading podcasts

                        When you listen to one episode, automatically flag the next episode to be downloaded.

                        If I'm listening to multiple podcasts that are well esrablished, but I'd like to listen to all episodes 1, then episodes 2, then episodes 3, etc. I currently have to manually sort.

                        I'd like to the the ability to flag a podcast for "catching up". When I listen to Episode 1, it automatically flags Episode 2 for download. This is convenient for auto-queueing downloaded episodes to the playlist and getting each podcast in proper order. It also allows for listening to multiple podcasts that were published…

                        • Settings presets instead of overriding settings for each podcast individually

                          I have two main types of podcasts I am listening too.

                          1. Story based podcasts
                          This type of Podcast tells a story over multiple episodes. The content often isn't related to the current events but can be listened years after publication. The episodes build on one another. An example would be 'Serial'. The listening order should be the order of publication. For this kind I override the settings like this:

                          Automatic download: yes
                          Archive mode: yes
                          Download older first: yes
                          Automatic playlist: yes
                          Delete: no

                          I sort the podcast by date, old->new

                          2. News based podcasts
                          This podcasts often are…

                          • Remap the physical buttons on the side of device when the screen is off.

                            When driving, I would like to skip commercials, or rewind to hear something I missed. I would be great if the physical volume buttons could be remapped to another function when the screen is off, so I can keep my eyes on the road. Also useful when player is in my pocket.

                            • 'Always On' Sleep setting per podcast

                              There are some podcasts I listen to only while sleeping. It would be useful to be able to enable a setting that would automatically trigger Sleep mode if you manually start playing an episode from that podcast. (I say manual to avoid perhaps issues with playlists)

                              • Option to make long topics of podcasts in the recent section be broken into two lines instead of cut off.

                                So a long topic that now looks like "Hurricane Irma: The Aftermath and..." would be able to look like this instead:

                                "Hurricane Irma: The Aftermath-
                                and Caribbean Disaster Response"

                                Thank you for creating an amazing app, keep up the good work!.

                                  Many times when I star an episode, it's because of something at a specific time in the episode. Being able to write even a few words about what's special about the episode I just starred would help me when going through them at a later time.

                                    Before I switched to the new phone, s8+ Android, I could tell if the podcast was playing, updating, stopped, etc without having to listen to the audio. Now, I cannot tell if the podcast is playing, updating, or anything. Where did the icons that used to show up on the notification bar go or how can I add them back?

                                        • Change jump backward/forward sliders to be more user friendly

                                          The sliders for changing the duration of a jump are currently rather difficult to use, and would benefit greatly from being changed to work like the slider that modifies the playback speed so that it's easier to input an exact value. Alternatively, these sliders could also be changed to allow the user to directly enter a number, which is the best option IMO.
