  1. Add gesture controls to pause/play/forward/skip seconds etc when screen is off. (Such as in Google play)

    I listen to it while sleeping or driving. If I want to skip the promo in the episode, I will have to switch on the screen and then do it. Do you think you'd face this issue? Please upvote. Thanks in advance!

      • Assume podcast is finished if played xx% (95? 97?) or y minutes-or-less left

        Most podcasts end with "housekeeping" and probably advertisements. When the core content is done, I don't wait for 100% finish.

        But if I jump out, the old podcast lingers, keeps using space, and might even be continued after I finish another podcast.

        And deleting by holding "jump to next podcast" button doesn't work for me - since I want to actually select the next thing to listen to, not some arbitrary 'next unlistened' one..

        • Pause on Volume=0

          Some music player apps will pause when volume is reduced to 0, and resume playback when the volume is increased. This is the best feature ever.

          • Strongly consider syncing across devices. I use several different devices and most other apps already provide this feature. Im very disappoi

            Complete the syncing across devices feature. Very disappointed to see how long ago this was requested with no apparent interest in providing this function.

            • Add screen edge gestures to the playback screen to control playback speed, volume, fast forward, rewind, and more

              Create the ability for users to slide their finger up and down the edge of their screen to control things. You can let users define the options as to what is controlled. For example, sliding up the left edge could fast forward, and sliding down the left edge could rewind. Sliding up the right edge could increase the playback speed and sliding down the right edge could decrease the playback speed. Check out Moon Reader app for great examples of how those developers have implemented something like this. Podcast Addict is the best player on the market. Please keep up…

              • Back button from Player opens Podcasts instead of closing app

                Right now, the back button (on Android) from the Player closes the app. Would like for it to open the Podcasts/Home instead!

                  The back button always returns to the previous scren until you reach the app opening screen. From there pressing on the back button will close the UI. If you open the app from the widget/notification then the opening scren is the player screen, so pressing back from that screen will exit the UI

                • Customize update frequency per podcast.

                  There are certain podcasts that I don't want to check for updates every time the auto-update runs.

                  Either because the podcast is finished, and I only want to stay subscribed in case the podcast will use their feed to deliver me news of a new, similar podcast they're doing.

                  Or it's that I know that the podcast will not update more than a few times a year.

                  Would be cool if I could customize the frequency for each podcast. The same way I can disable updates altogether for certain podcasts.

                  Addendum:

                  • Include an option to display the full episode title.

                    It is the only annoying element for myself, that the titles get cut off and I don't know what the episode is about. Every time I want to scan the episodes list I must turn on the auto rotation mode (which I keep off by default), come back to the app and turn the phone 90 degrees to see the full titles in the landscape mode. And once finished, go back and turn the auto rotation mode off. That's a hurdle. And I must repeat it often.

                    An option to display the full episodes titles in the list view would…

                    • Add settings for Chromecast

                      Right now playback for Chromecast forces app to go full screen and only allows increments of 30 seconds for rewind/fast forward. It would be nice to have the same settings for the normal player ported over. I understand Google may be responsible for some playback settings, but can we at least toss the full screen.

                        • Have a "mark episode skipped" button

                          I have several podcasts that i listen to on a semi regular basis. So there are episodes that i don't wanna listen to.
                          I want to be able to mark them as skipped so the tag (number of episodes left) on the podcast will read the actual amount i have left to listen to and also know the episodes i skipped if i ever wanna go back to them

                          • Custom value for "Keep at most"

                            Currently user can choose between preset values (1, 3, 5, etc.) in the Automatic Cleanup "Keep at most" setting. Why not allow any value to be entered? I personally would like an option for 2 and 4.

                              • Stop after * episodes

                                I love using the sleep timer, especially the ability to stop at the end of an episode.

                                Sometimes I listen to shorter podcasts. I'd love to have the option to stop after a certain number of episodes, instead of trying to add up the number of minutes/seconds to figure out how long to set the timer. "Stop after 5 episodes" for example.

                                Thanks so much for your app. It's the best thing out there!

                                • Mark old episodes as played and remove from playlist

                                  Use case: I set Podcast Addict to add new episodes to the playlist, but not necessarily download them in advance. I want to mark old episodes as played (like old news that I didn't get around to listen to; I don't need them anymore after 1 week). Unfortunately, the settings "Delete older episodes" and "Mark Played on deletion" do not seem to apply for these. I would like to see these enhancements:

                                  1. A global and per-podcast option "Mark older episodes as played"
                                  2. An option (global? Per-podcast?) to remove episodes which have been marked as played (by whatever means)…

                                    I know you have a Chromecast button on the app but it would be brilliant to be able to have an option on the widget setting for enable a cast button on the widget itself, I am always casting and have to go into the app to cast it which is not a problem but I normally play my current podcast from the player controls on the widget, is this something you could do? Love the app , it's the only podcast app I will ever use :)

                                      • Multiple playlists

                                        I would like to be able to create multiple regular playlists, where I select which episodes are added to each playlist and not add all episodes of a podcast like in the "custom" category. Also, it should be possible to remove the "video" playlist as I don't have a need for this, and I assume most people who listen to podcasts (while driving etc) also don't.

                                        However, most importantly, I would like to be able to create multiple playlists (like one for listen to now, listen to when I have time, etc) where I am individually adding episodes, not complete…

                                        • Textual filter amongst our subscribed podcast (home view)

                                          In the view "Podcasts" implements a textual filter in order to get to the serached podcast. I have almost 100 subscribed podcast and it's a bit difficult to look for one juste by scrolling or sort by category. I'd like to sort it by a word in its title.
