  1. Integration with news aggregator and article text-to-speech

    I have much more time to listen to content than to read content. My suggestion is to partner with news aggregators such as Feedly or newspaper apps to add written articles to the Podcast Addict playlist to be played as audio via text-to-speech.

    The way I envision this working is that in the news aggregator app when I'm looking at the preview of an article, next to the button to open the article to read it in a browser there would be a button to "Send to Podcast Addict" and a text-to-speech version of the article would be added to…

  3. Button at bottom of search results to search all podcasts

    At the bottom or end of the search results when you search "All" (all of your subscribed podcasts) have a button or a swipe that will search in Podcasts for what you already typed. That way you don't have to basically search twice, widening your results the second time could be a little faster.

    A "see more results" button essentially.

  4. Grid set-up change

    I love the app, but recently upgraded to a new phone which must have different dimensions, because the main screen looks different. I love the grid layout, but the small grid is 5 across, and the grid layout is 3, whereas 4 would be perfect. Would it be possible to have a choice of the number of titles across, instead of 3 "fixed" grid sizes?

  5. Drag and Drop Divider Bars

    I would love to have newly added podcasts not create their own categories and to be able to display and sort all of my custom categories on the main screen at the same time. However, if overhauling the category system is too drastic, then maybe you could just add in custom divider bars that could be used to sort podcasts on the main screen through drag and drop when "custom order" is selected for sort. It could be a totally manual thing without having to complicate the sort or category features. Just dragable bars with custom text to allow for…

    Unfortunately this feature is against Google policies for now, so it will not be implemented in the app. Podcast Addict already had a similar features 5+ years ago and I had to remove it after Google contacted me...

  7. Please move the download button further from the scroll bar.

    It is nearly impossible to consistently press the download/quick play button in list view. No matter how careful I am, it is difficult not to either press the episode box or the scroll bar. This has been an issue for years across multiple devices, and the fast scroll setting does nothing. Moving these buttons a few pixels to the left would help immensely.

  8. Affichage mosaïque radios

    Bonjour. Je suggère d'améliorer la lecture des icônes des radios affichés en mosaïque : retirer les boutons d'action lecture ou les rendre transparents afin de mieux voir les logos.
    Fonctionnement suggéré : il n'y a pas de bouton Play visible. Je clique, je lance l'ecoute, apparaît alors le bouton pause sur la seule station en écoute.
    Je clique sur Pause, l'écoute s'arrête et le bouton pause disparaît.
    Le but est d'avoir une bien meilleure lecture des logos.
    Merci.
    Christophe

  9. Add an option to remove the progress bar from the lock screen player notification.

    When running or walking I often nudge forward or backwards the progress and it's difficult to find my place again.

  10. use PodcastAddict as a music player

    I use PA to play my MP3 musics by creating a virtual podcast to a folder on my SD card that contains all my favorite musics.
    It just lacks the possibility of resetting the playback of the songs if you leave the song and the possibility of downloading the image of the original CD cover.
    It would be great to give up any other player to play my music

  11. Off-Device-Archiving: 'one-click-system'

    Memory is extremely limited on phones; so good episodes must be stored/archived off-device. This should not be too complicated: while I'm listening, I should be able to 'mark episode for off-device archiving'. Maybe the episode could then be moved to one central 'outbox' folder; from where it would be easy to move the media files to the Computer.

    As things are now, it's too fussy to remember and then find the episodes on the device that one wanted to move off-device for archiving.

  12. Create a folder to sort and move tracks

    I would like to create a folder to move and sort the downloaded files. Especialliy if you want to listen again to some tracks, maybe meditations it is easier to open a folder called "meditations" which includes all the meditation files.

  14. Remove played / starred episode from playlist.

    When I clear the playlist and afterwards enque downloaded episodes (to restore the default) my favourite (starred) podcast episodes get added to the playlist as well, since I've got "Keep favorite episodes" on.

    So similarly to "Remove non downloaded episodes" I'd like to have a "Remove played episodes" or an "Remove favourite episodes" button in the playlist menu.

  15. Be able to archive podcasts that are finished

    Being able to mark a podcast as "finished" or "archived" so that it doesn't show up in the main podcast list but isn't necessarily deleted from the overall collection. I want to keep some for recommendation or occasional re-listening but I want to keep my primary list uncluttered.

  16. Allow "inverse" category selection

    In the same way you can select "News" and see only podcasts with that category, it would be convenient to see all the podcasts /without/ that category, i.e., the complement of the set. This would allow users to avoid (say) news for a while if they wanted to, and it would also help users assign categories to podcasts which should have them but don't. I imagine it showing up in the category list as something like "-News", or "^News", or "!News", but any way this could be implemented would be appreciated.

  18. Scale podcast artwork with other aspect ratios

    Currently artwork expects a square aspect ratio. Other aspect ratios, e.g. landscape, display the centre of the artwork (with a square aspect ratio).

    It'd be great to have the artwork 'padded' with transparency to make it fit (aka zoomed out).

    Alternatively a zoom/crop style feature as found on phone cameras would work, although the first option above would suit fine for me.

  19. Move the date in News Episodes & Last Published Episodes tiles

    In "New Episodes" and "Last Published Episodes" list, the date of publication is on the same line than the title of the episode. So this date often hides significant part of the title if it is too long.

    Could it be possible to move the date on the same line than the duration of the episode, at the bottom of the episode tile ?
