Add a podcast discovery service, listing popular & top rated podcasts in categories/types - Science, News, Sport, Comedy etc.
As a big fan of the app, I would really like to see a podcast discovery service. I don't just mean in the way of recommendations (though that may help some), but the classification of Podcasts into different categories and listing popular, 'Top rated' podcasts in different categories/types - Comedy, News, Science, Arts, Music, Sports, Entertainment etc.4 votes

Imagine that you have your playlist sorted by date, and you want to always play the most recent playlist. In this case, then when the current podcast has finished, it should not play the next in the playlist, but instead play the one at the top of the playlist.
There should be an option to specify this.44 votes
This is available in the latest v2.19 version. Enable this setting in Settings/Playlist
Some times I want to listen to the last item on the playlist without re-sorting it. Currently the playback will stop once the last item is finished, even if there are elements left on the playlist.
When finishing the last item, it would be useful if playback could resume from the first element, thus wrapping around.18 votes
This is available in the latest v2.19 version (you have to enable the repeat mode in the player screen)
If I have something my playlist and want to download it I have to dig through my podcasts to find it. This option would save a lot of hassle.1 vote
I'd like to group my podcasts and refresh them based on that particular group alone. e.g. I listed to comedy, news, and coffee podcasts. when I hit refresh it takes several minutes since it refreshes all of them. if I only want to update my comedy podcasts I still end up waiting quite a while.4 votes

add the ability to hide non-audio items, like blog posts. all i want is audio, and most of what i get is blog posts.
It would be nice if the feeds were separated but many podcasters (even professional ones) seems to mix everything up in one feed.19 votes

You can enable shuffle mode in Settings/Player/Controls
It renders the counter with it's white numbers on it barely readable.
Instead you could even save a whole line by combining the counter
for all available episodes of a podcast with that "unread counter".
e.g. if there are 20 episodes available and 10 of them are unread it
could display as 10(20) at the positon where it shows the counter
with that blue background right now. You would save the line above
where it now says "20 episodes". Thank you, I like PA!6 votes
Available in v2.13
***note - this is different than existing favorite episodes feature***
I want to list to my podcasts in this order:
1-MobileTechRoundup (~60 minutes, updates roughly weekly)
2-NPR News (~5 minutes, updates hourly)
3-WSJ Tech Briefing (~5min, updates twice a day)
4-bunch of other short podcasts
5-bunch of other long podcasts
Using the available sort options doesn't allow me to listen in this order (I have been using stitcher which does let you do this). I think having a favorites flag will allow me to use the sort by duration with the exception of playing my selected favorites first.35 votes
I will add a priority setting for every podcast. It will be available by long pressing the podcast and selecting ‘Custom settings’.
Once the priorities are set, you will be able to sort the podcast list (main screen) and/or the playlist by priorities.
Edit: delivered in v2.1.0

It won’t be the default behaviour but you’re will be able to change it in Settings/Player/Screen Off
