  1. Virtual podcast instructions

    As I understand it, you can play external files in the app by using the Virtual podcast feature which allows you to select a folder so its content can be used as episodes in the app. I have a folder with multiple mp3s, all individual episodes from the same show. When I click on +, then select Virtual, the folder with the mp3s shows up, but there are no files/episodes listed. How do I play one of the mp3s directly from the app using the Virtual feature?

    This is normal. You’re selecting a folder, not a standalone file.
    Once the folder is selected the app will create a new podcast and every media file available in the selected folder will be available as an episode.
    Feel free to contact me if you have any question (Settings/Feedback)
    Thanks

  2. Revert to offering multiple virtual podcasts for subfolders

    Until recently, when creating a virtual podcast, if the folder selected contained no files but only subfolders, the option would be offered to create a separate virtual podcast for each folder. Now that option seems to be gone, and it just dumps everything in all the subfolders into one virtual podcast. Could this option be reinstated, please?

  4. Skip and delete through Android auto

    I use the long press fwd to delete and skip to the next Podcast a lot. Would love to have the same option via Android Auto as I spend most of my listening time while driving.

    Thanks!

  5. List of last played episodes

    I like to have a list of last episodes played. Reason is that I often listen to a longer podcast, eg in bed, that I do not finish. During the day í listen to several other podcasts and like to return to the one I did not finish in the evening. Rather than searching through all my subscription, I would prefer a quick glance at the last run audios. I think a simple, self over writing (roll-over) list of say last 10 pieces would suffice (maybe this could even be configured by the user). Thanks!

  6. Allow access to episode's information window from the playlist screen

    Within the playlist screen, it seems to be impossible to view an episode's description and other relevant information.

    Generally, when I build my playlist, I'm viewing episode descriptions to decide which episodes I should download and which ones I should skip. By the time I get to these episodes in my playlist, I can often forget what a particular episode is about.

    Currently, I have to navigate away from the playlist screen to the podcasts screen, clock the relevant podcast and also remember and select the appropriate episode. This seems like something that should be easily added to the contextual…

  7. Filter episode list by Not Played

    The episode list of a podcast can easily be filtered by some criteria (downloaded, playback in progress, already played, etc), but I miss the most a filter by "Not Played" option. That is probably the most useful option when looking for what to listen now, or what new episodes have been published.

  8. Back button while on player page should go to episode list, not home screen

    When you're listening to a podcast, and you pull up the player by tapping the icon or the widget, it seems natural to want to go back to the episode list by pressing the back button. Instead, the back button returns you to the home screen. Would be good if it brought you back to the episode list, and a further back brought you to the podcast home

    Pressing on the back button always returns to the previous screen, even when the current screen is the player.
    However, once you reach the app opening screen, then pressing one more will leave the app.
    If you open the app from the player notification/widget, the player screen IS the opening screen, so pressing on the back button from that screenwill leave the app.
    Instead open the app using the app launcher icon or navigate through the device recent apps

  9. Detect duplicates(rebroadcast) and marked them played

    I would Really appreciate a function that searches for duplicate episodes within a podcast. Several of the podcast I'm subscribed too rebroadcast episodes without indicating it, using exactly the same title. I waste time listening to it a few minutes until realizing it is a duplicate from a month or year ago. If there is already a solution for this please let me know.

    I’m sorry but unless the podcast author uses some specific keywords there’s no way to know if an episode is a rebroadcast or not
    If they do use a keyword like ‘rebroadcast’ then you can use the podcast custom settings screen to set a filter and exclude episodes with this keyword

  10. Sleep timer and end of episode

    I suggest that once the episode ends while sleep timer is on, the episode wouldnt show as if you need to hear it from the beginning again. It should keep the info of the minute and second you started the sleep timer.

  12. Add offline mode to android auto

    When using the app in Auto, it would be really helpful to have the option to operate "offline" - so that only downloaded episodes are shown.
    I have a long commute so I can't stream bc it uses too much data and coverage is unreliable. So, I automatically download several episodes of each podcast. Unfortunately when I try to search by category,podcast, or other categories in the app, it shows EVERY episode which really clutters things and makes it hard to find the ones that don't require streaming. I am aware that there is a "Downloaded" tab, but I have…

    You can set the app to only show downloaded episodes before using Android auto if you want to, otherwise you can open the Downloaded episodes list and play from there. This list only contains downloaded episodes
    Feel free to contact me if you have any question (Settings/Feedback)
    Thanks

  13. Output through a sound stretching algorithm

    I love the ability to play at various speeds, but 150% even makes Barry White sound like a chipmonk.

    There are ways to process sound that alter the pitch at the same time as the speed to compensate and make the voices and music sound right.

    I see there are several android apps on google play that can do similar as a standalone processor (search: "sound stretch").

  14. Move app to SDcard

    I'd like to suggest that the Podcast addict App could also be moved to the SDcard. I have always troubles with my internal storage, which is too full. But I have lots of space on my SD card, which is formated as internal storage. Podcast addict has gotten very big (more than five gb) over time, so it would be great if the app would support this feature.

    Sorry but the app cannot be moved on the SD card. This would break most of its feature because of Android restrictions. The app itself doesn’t use much space. Downloaded files can be moved on the SD card to free some space (Settings/Download/Storage space)

  15. Notes field for podcasts to add thoughts while listening (not bookmarks)

    Could we have a Notes field for the podcasts? I saw that in another comment the user wanted the notes field for bookmarks and that's what you pointed out.

    But I don't want it for bookmarks but sometimes while listening there's a key thought or website or persons name which is mentioned and I'd like to note these down so I can look them up later.

    Of course, I can still do that in something like google keep but then the relation with which podcast this was related to is lost.

    Thoughts? Can we do this? Just a plain test…

  16. Add support for chromecast hardware buttons to skip forward/backward

    Podcast Addict does a great job when connected with bluetooth audio to be able to skip forwards/backwards some seconds via the bluetooth device, e.g. my car. Super useful when I was distracted and missed some seconds.
    My chromecast devices (Pioneer MRX-3) have hardware buttons for back/play&pause/forward. The play&pause-button works with PA, but back/forward don't.
    It would be great to support these buttons, too, if technically possible! :-) Would be useful when I'm e.g. in the kitchen and could just flick back with the press of a button.
    Thanks for all the great work you're doing!!!

    Once you connect to a Chromecast device, then this device is in charge of the playback.
    If it has extra buttons to control the playback then the manufacturer should make sure they work fine.
    Podcast Addict just shows the playback progress and forward the app commands to your chromecast. Sorry I cannot be more helpful with this

  18. Remove from playlist

    I would love to have the option of removing an episode from my playlist when there is a certain amount of time left. Some podcasts end every episode with 2-3 minutes of music. It would be nice to skip to the next (before actually listening to the entire episode), and remove it automatically from my playlist.

    Great app keep up the good work!

  20. Document Default Sorting

    I came to UserVoice here specifically for this topic : I couldn't find a Global Sort option in Settings. Now that I understand how it works, though many requests and comments here, I'm happy to use it as-designed. Given the high profile of Sorting in Q&A for this app, I highly suggest that the Getting Started Guide or FAQ include a paragraph to specifically describe how this mechanism works:

    There is no "Global Default Sort Order" setting. To set the default sort for all episodes of all podcasts, Uncheck the App Setting > Display Configuration > Podcasts > Custom Sorting.…
