  2. Avoid starvation

    I use priority sorting because I'm more interested in some podcasts. But some podcasts with lower priority are never played.

    It would be useful to have a system to increase an episode priority after n days from the download date.

    Something like this https://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/forums/211997-general/suggestions/17962558-priority-queueing-based-on-queue-score or also a sorting boolean variable. Thanks! Merry Christmas!

    Hey, I implemented a similar feature in the latest Beta of the app as a test.
    Can you please join the Beta on the app Play Store page and then download the latest update
    Then please go into Settings/Playlist and enable ‘Smart priority sorting’
    Please let me know how this works for you so I can know if this makes sense to have this in the next version of the app

    FYI this takes into account priority and episode release date

    Thanks

  3. AB repeat feature

    If the user selects the Repeat A-B option, that would define the current playback position as the 'in' point, and the option wording would change to Repeat A-B (set endpoint). When the endpoint has similarly been selected, the track would repeat continuously between A and B until the user selects a different option.

    thanks

  4. Add a way to search settings

    I love that podcast addict has so many customization options, but because of this it can be difficult to find some settings. Adding a way to search the settings by keyword would be helpful

    This will be implemented in v2020.10
    This won’t be in the new version that just started rolling out.

    Please join the Beta from the app Play Store app page to test this feature. A new beta will be available by tomorrow to test this

  5. Clips

    How about function for creating "clips" from the podcasts/episodes. Cutting Just seconds or minutes

  6. Audio normalization

    It a feature that allowed us to normalize audio volume so the volume of sounds were the same it would be awesome and extremely useful because some podcasts have wild volume variations.

    Thanks.

  7. Filter by day of the week

    Some pods like bbc woman's hour, and farming today have omnibus editions on a Saturday which pulls from the previous Monday to Friday episodes. I'd like to filter out the Saturday episode.

  8. Setting for a short silent pause between episodes in the playlist

    Sometimes it seems like two episodes in the playlist can blend together when one plays immediately after the previous one especially when the two episodes are from the same podcast. A setting to allow a silent pause between episodes of around 5ish seconds (or customisable amount) could help the listener to better distinguish between episodes.

  9. Alternative to Youtube

    It's been observed that Youtube has lately started to clamp down on certain political speech. Many of my favorite content creators were forced to migrate to the alternative resource - Bitchute.com

    My request is to implement RSS subscription to Bitchute channels the same way the YT channels' RSS subscription was implemented.

    Unlike Youtube, the Bitchute does not prohibit downloading their content (AFAIK). The second part of the request is to be able to save the Bitchute videos (or the extracted audio) for later offline playback like podcasts.

  10. Enable rating without Google Drive.

    Enable rating (i.e., 1 to 5 stars) podcast episodes, without being required to sign into Google Drive. I will not use Google Drive. I hope to continue rating Podcast Addict with 5 stars.

  11. Clip sharing

    I would love to share small Clips, similar to the function how it's implemented in Overcast.

    https://marco.org/2019/04/27/overcast-clip-sharing

    When I listen to long podcasts I often have parts of it, which are relevant for another person.
    So I want to share a small part, cut in Podcast Addict and send as MP3.
    The workflow would be easy and it would bring so much added value.

  12. Make the audio mute more gradual for the sleep timer rather than the abrupt high to low, as it is now

    The automatic sleep timer, whilst going through the phase of allowing you to shake to extend the timer appears to go from normal high volume to low volume in one go, I'd like a more gradual reduction in volume maybe even the option for a low short(ding)tone to announce the shake grace period has started, cheers John

  13. Alternative (simpler) cross-device/platform functionality

    While it would be great to have true cross-device/platform syncing, I am sensitive to the potential complexity of such functionality.

    Assuming that Xavier isn't close to bringing us a proper bi-directional cross-platform solution, I would like to suggest an alternative which may be acceptable to many of the people who have asked for cross-device syncing at https://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/forums/211997/suggestions/4115735 and a desktop version at https://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/forums/211997/suggestions/6531942.

    Namely:
    That a primary-secondary model be created.
    One Android device would be configured as the primary device. All other Android devices and desktop or web applications would be secondary.
    The primary device would be responsible for…

  14. Add "Downloaded" as sort criteria

    Add a "Downloaded" (without the date) as one of the available sort criterias so we can actually put the downloaded episodes first and then sort them by priority or by publication date. Right now the only way to sort downloaded episodes first is to use the download date criteria, which doesn't allow for a secondary sort criteria.

  15. Add MP3 compression option

    My biggest pain point is that I keep running out of storage space on my phone (I have a Pixel 3a 64GB but still with Spotify, Photos and Podcasts it runs out quickly). It would be amazing if I could press a button to have Podcast Addict go through all my downloaded episodes and convert them to a lower audio quality to save space (or just do this automatically after downloading). I would pay for this feature – my best alternative is to buy a much more expensive phone with more storage...

  16. if a podcast supports seasons, show that on the podcast page

    Some podcasts (especially audio dramas) have seasons to their content. Many of them use the iTunes markup in their rss feed to designate which season and episode from that season it is.

    Example: https://rss.art19.com/proof

    It would be awesome to have "folders" that could be expanded or collapsed accordion style for each season of that podcast.

  18. Add AGC (automatic gain control) to level out the audio

    Not only do levels vary from podcast to podcast, but within podcasts if they don't pre-process the audio.

    I suggest active gain leveling, not just simple replay gain or normalization. As though the listener was constantly moving the volume up and down to make it consistent.

    Technical: Calculate the RMS level for the upcoming 1/4 second or so, then adjust an internal gain block to either boost or cut to compensate. Response time to loud passages should be pretty quick, then release times to higher gains during quiet passages would take a second or two.

  19. Add Pause / Resume / Rewind 5 Seconds option to Upon short audio notification setting

    This setting would work just like the existing Pause / Resume option but it would also rewind 5 seconds on resume. This would be useful when doing something like navigating Google Maps. The notifications are often long enough that a quick refresher on what was just said in a podcast would be helpful.

  20. Allow for "refresh regardless of podcast settings"

    Hi !

    I'm a big fan of the feature implemented from [this suggestion](https://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/forums/211997-general/suggestions/5309027-exclude-some-podcasts-from-sync-to-reduce-traffic) which allowed me to pare down the podcasts I refresh daily from 91 to 45 (50% improvement woohoo!).
    But the thing is, those podcasts I excluded might still occasionally put up something new on their feeds: bonus content, live show announcements, trailers for new projects from the creators, ...
    To make sure I don't miss that, I'd have to go podcast by podcast through the 46 excluded ones to refresh them.
    Could there be an option I could use maybe every month or every other…
