  1. 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.

    • 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…

      • Ignore listening progress for the first couple of seconds

        This would be useful if you accidentally started the wrong podcast or you lined up the wrong episode in your playlist and ended up skipping it right away.

        After years of using your app I just recently discovered automatic playlists and continuous playback. As a result I have a lot of started episodes with the progress set to ~5 seconds in.

        This might not be an issue for a lot of users, but I really appreciate how customizable the app is. Maybe even let the user decide the starting point for the listening progress.

        Thanks

        • 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.

          • 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…

              • Save playlists

                I would like to make save able custom sorted playlists. I have podcasts that I like to go back and relisen to but in customisable mixed orders. Example: HISTORY PODCASTS. i subscribe to several history podcasts and would like to mix them together but order them by time of the events being discussed in the podcasts rather than by the release date. What I would like to do is make a playlist much like you do with music and then I can just save it and refer to it whenever rather than having to re-add them to the audio playlist…

                • Play first so many seconds and last so many seconds of a Podcast at a certain speed before switching back to Podcast's default speed

                  Certain series often have a set number of sconds of fluff intheir intro and outro. Id like a setting that played those amount of tiimes at fastest speed to blow through them.

                  • Allow speed controls to be always visible

                    Please create a setting for users to always have the + and - speed controls on the screen. Having to open the speed control window is cumbersome, plus it blocks videos that I may be playing. I often like to adjust speed up and down while listening to a podcast. This helps me blow past topics that I don't t care about and slow down for subjects during a podcast that I want to pay more attention to. In other words, for me, I LOVE your plus and minus speed throttling buttons. I just want them to always visible next…

                      I think it should be possible to login so that if we lose our phone the next time we get the app we don't have to sit and remember which podcasts we have subscribed to and figure out which ones we've already listened to

                      • 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…

                          • 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.

                              Podcast Addict is amazingly stable and usable for such a feature-filled product and I would love to use it, but I mostly want to listen to podcasts in my (noisy) car and there are enough annoyances that add up to make it unpleasant. I'd like a few audio adjustments to improve things:

                              1) compress dynamic range - my biggest problem is that the noisy environment in my car means that for some podcasts I either get blasted when someone suddenly talks loudly or else I strain to hear the quiet parts (the outros can be especially bad for suddenly being…

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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!

                                      • allow the "Mark Played" action to remove podcast from current list of unplayed episodes

                                        Currently, if a podcast is partially played and you stop playback and mark it as "Played", the partially played episode remains in the un-played state and will return again when playing through the list.

                                        Request is to basically set the state of any podcast that is manually marked as "Played" to the same state as if the podcast had played all the way through.

                                        Selecting "Mark all played" should have this same behavior if it doesn't already.

                                          I’m not sure to understand what you mean by the partially played episode remains in the un-played state and will return again when playing through the list.
                                          If you mark an episode as played you won’t see it anymore if played episodes are hidden.
                                          However this doesn’t remove the episode from the playlist.

                                          There’s a single ‘played’ status, so the flag behave the same way when added manually or automatically by the app. However when an episode has been fully listened to the app can do other action based on your settings such as deleting the file and removing the episode from the playlist

                                        • Sort playlist by total cumulative listening time

                                          Is it possible to add a sorting criteria based on total listening time to each podcast?

                                          E.g. I have a subscription that has 6 hour episodes, and most of the others are 20 minutes. I would like to prioritise the shorter ones in my playlist until they all have 6 hours total listening time, equalising the time I spend on each.
