  1. Create automatic playlist based on duration

    The app creates an automatic playlist based on a duration of choice. F.a. if your daily trip to work takes 30 minutes, it creates an automatic playlist that comes as close as possible to the duration.

    • Working on a Google home integration

      I'm a huge fan of your application and I'm considering buying a Google Home assistant to browse my favorite podcasts while doing the dishes. Are you planning on working on something tlike this ? Thanks !

      • 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.

        • 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

            Next version will only show episodes played for at least 10s in that screen.
            When you want to skip the end credits of a podcast you can set the app to skip this podcast ‘outro’ (skip the last XX seconds) or you can long press on the player next track button to mark this episode as played while skipping to the next episode

            Feel free to send me an email if you have any question (Settings/Feedback)

          • 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…

            • Support Jump Forward/Back on Android Auto

              Hello,

              I see that you have had a number of requests for android auto jump forward/back functionality that were closed saying that the functionality was supported, or that it was not possible to implement.

              I'm looking to move to this application from BeyondPod, which does support in android auto mode both episode skip/restart, as well as jump forward/back, and I believe that supporting both is not only quite possible, but valuable functionality.

              Currently, you have the "..." menu in android auto that brings up the secondary menu, and has limited functionality. BeyondPod places the jump forward/back buttons on this secondary…

              • 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…

                • Pin podcasts / exclude from "mark all played"

                  I have a lot of podcasts subscribed to, some of which I don't need to listen to every episode, so I use your "mark all played" function a lot.

                  Every now and then though, there are some podcasts I discover with many episodes that I'd like to catch up on and listen to all previous episodes. So I have to shuffle through the played section to find it, and end up forgetting about the podcast entirely. Is it possible to "pin" a podcast? Or have it be exempt from "mark all played"? Thanks, I love your app.

                  • 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…

                    • Improve the themes/UI

                      Please consider cleaning up the UI. Or at least give the option to hide UI elements. Your app might just be the very best regarding functionality but it doesn't look all that great in my opinion. It is very busy to look at.

                      For example the refresh button could be replaced with pull-to-refresh as an option.

                      Let me remove it the indicator for video or audio episodes. I don't do video podcasts (Does anyone??). The same is true for the playlist. Let's please hide the video feed.

                      • 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…

                                  Hi Guillemaine,
                                  There are many useful functions in podcast addict which makes the menus somewhat complex.
                                  Maybe it is time to add a simple/advanced menu choice in order to make the application more easy to start for new users.
                                  BR and Good Christmas,
                                  Owe.

                                    I would like to have a setting that allowed me to automatically download the current and at most X number of items in the Playlist.

                                    That way I could add episodes to the Playlist and always now I have at least the next X items offline. And as soon as a episode is finished and marked as played it will be deleted and a new one in the list will be downloaded.

                                    I don't listen to all episodes of all podcasts so automatically download them is of no interest and I would like to limit the storage used so I…

                                      • Add an option to specific podcast settings to skip that podcast when calculating the icon badge number on the desktop

                                        My scenario that I can't achieve right now is:

                                        - Add an audiobook with 150 files as a virtual podcast
                                        - Assign a specific category to this virtual podcast to make it appear in a custom playlist with a filename sorting
                                        - Edit custom settings of this virtual podcast as to not add it's files to the main playlist
                                        - Mark all files inside the podcast as played so it's huge number isn't reflected in nova launcher icon badge

                                        Now because the files are marked as played, I can select the custom playlist for this podcast.

                                        My proposed solution is:…

                                          I love the Plus and Minus buttons in the Speed Adjustment fly out, and I use them dozens of times a day. Here are some problems with the fly out window:
                                          1) When I'm watching a video podcast it covers up the video content.
                                          2) It's an extra, unnecessary step to first open the speed adjustment window to then adjust the speed. This is fine for people who set it and forget it, but it would be great to have a less cumbersome option for users like me that adjust the speed and up and down all day long.

                                          Many…
