  1. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. NewPipe

    Youtube's ToS do not allow to download their content directly under the threat of a ban. However there could be a workaround. There's an excellent app out there called the NewPipe. It allows to download the YT videos (and even the extracted audio) through the "Share" button on YT itself. My request is to integrate the option to "Share" the YT videos in RSS subscriptions of PA to NewPipe if such app is present on one's device.

  5. 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…

    EDIT: a 1st beta will be available by the end of the day.

    FYI the Custom playlists will soon be improved.
    Filters will be available so the selected category can only show episodes based on their download status, played status, stared status, publication date, …
    I get it that some of you want multiple playlists were episodes can be manually added, but there’s no plan to implement this for now.
    However, according to the feedback I got by email, it looks like those filters will solve limitations of the current solution for most users.
    Feel free to send me some feedback by email if you have ideas for other filters that can be implemented (Settings/Feedback/Email)
    Thanks

  6. 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.

  7. Move to Top When Played

    An option to automatically move an episode to the top of the Playlist when played. I sporadically move through a long playlist and have multiple partially listened episodes at any given time. It would be nice for the "in progress" episodes to float to the top.

  10. Download before playing

    Even Sticher has this. There should be a download before play option. I never want to actually stream anything, just take 5 seconds and download the podcast first. Automatic download settings do not cover my use case and I want specific individual podcast episodes to be downloaded directly before playing

  11. Integrate with Waze

    Waze has this new feature - an audio kit that allows 3rd party apps to play audio in the Waze app (see https://www.waze.com/audioplayer). Several large players (Spotify, Deezer) have already done this integration.

    As most of my listening is done on the road it would be a great improvement. I also saw that other users had issues with the current situation.

  12. 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.

  13. Create a "Keep at most" override notification

    Please add an override or change limit message when attempting to manually download a number of episodes that when combined with what has already been downloaded will exceed the "keep at most" limit if it's not already set to unlimited. I think this is why I keept experiencing stage behavior when trying to download a lot of episodes and forgot to charge that limit. It seems like it's downloading all of them then marking all but the most recent (insert limit) episodes as played add deleting the downloads.

    Thanks for providing the best podcast player and scraper for Android!

  14. Back button

    Once the player starts, using the back button usually goes out of the App to the phone "desktop". I don't need that because my phone has a button for that - I get a sinking "oh bother" feeling almost every time.
    Most times I would like it to return me to the same place in the list of podcasts I've just come from (either form the same subscription or a search result) – then I can select another one from the sequence or category.
    Or perhaps this is a setting I have not noticed - please help me find it.

  15. Download certain amount of episodes from custom playlists

    I have multiple custom playlists, and I want to download a couple of episodes from every playlist.

    A menu where you could specify the amount of episodes to automatically download from every custom playlist would do the trick

  16. "New Episodes" screen > swipe episode to download (right) or "mark as read" (left)

    As an Android user of Podcast Addict, I refresh my podcast feed (over 30 subscriptions) once or twice a week. In my configuration, this presents a list of 15-20 entries on the "new episodes" page.

    I manually download the episodes I'm interested in, and mark the ones I'm not interested in as "read".

    Problem: a user must select an episode on the New Episodes screen, launch the episode's screen, then select either "download" or "mark read" on the screen.

    It would be really useful to have a shortcut feature on the main New Episode screen which allows me to quickly…

  17. Add a toggle update on/off in the manage subscriptions menu

    In the manage subscriptions menu where all podcasts are listed, it would be handy to have the ability to toggle updates instead of having to go to each podcast separately.

    I've looked for this option in the app but can't find it if it does exist.

  19. Separate back/forward control settings

    When listening to a podcast or audiobook, I use the back button on my headset or in the car to rewind back a few seconds to hear something I missed. But when I use the forward button, it's to skip to the end of the chapter/episode to get to the next file. But the settings won't let me set up back to rewind a few seconds and forward to skip to next. They are either both rw/ff or skip to previous/skip to next. Could you split them so they can be set individually?

  20. Change behavior based on Car Mode

    I'd suggest changing behavior based on whether a phone is in car mode or not.
    Maybe add a separate 'settings' section for 'when in car mode', allowing the user to specify things like
    - panel to start up in (playlist/player/podcasts
    - font size
    - display mode

    Many of us listen to podcasts while driving. The UI needs are different in an 'eyes busy/hands busy' situation
