    • Add Favicon images for rss news feeds

      Rather than display the standard orange rss icon it would be good if the favicon of the site could be used instead?

        • Open links in an episode description in an external browser

          The behaviour changed recently and now links open inside the app, which is horrible for navigation. Or is my system fucked up?

          • provide a manual

            with a "quick start" section

            and a section outlining various patterns of use

            there are so many screens/features that a hand-hold guide that gets the user going with basic functionality would be great, including

            subscribe to a few popular feeds
            establish download/refresh schedule

            • Replace "Filter" menu by a customizable navigation bar

              Currently, it exists the Filter menu, with several options (Lastest episodes, downloaded episode, ...).
              The problem is we must select this menu and after the desired option, and option lines are quite small and its not easy to access them during driving for exemple.
              So, my idea is to add a navigation bar instead of the "filter" menu, with direct access to all or some options represented by icons (if its not possible to add all options, it would be great that the user could choose options he wants in this navigation bar).
              I thinks the navigation will be more…

              • a feature to let the user choose to activate the timer by default

                It would be useful for people who listen to their podcasts at night and always fall asleep during the listening (excuse my english...)

                  Delivered in v3.39

                  ==========

                  I will add a new setting in Settings/Player/Timer called ‘Allways ON’
                  When enabled it will automatically start the sleep timer using the lastest timer settings when you start playing an episode

                • allow users to choose what sorting they want in the playlist

                  I always listen to my podcast episodes by duration so every time open my playlist, Ihave to go to setting and sort it by duration. It would be nice if you could set the playlist they way you always or usually listen to it. It seems the default sorting is by date.

                  • add feature to shut off screen when video podcasts are playing.

                    I want to be able to carry my android device in my pocket and listen to any video podcast with the screen locked. This is suitable when I can't keep my eyes on the screen (when driving for example) this way I save battery and I avoid having the cellphone active (video might be stopped accidentally)

                      v2.3 will be available in the next hours

                      They is a new setting to allow video playback to go on when the screen is turned off.
                      It won’t be the default behaviour but you’re will be able to change it in Settings/Player/Screen Off

                    • Add search button inside subscribed podcast

                      For example if I'm subscribed to the Radiolab podcast and i would like to find a specific podcast within the Radiolab directory but there is no search button, u have to find it by scrolling down alot

                        • A feature to only keep a specified number of most recent episodes per podcasts

                          I use too much memory now. If I could manually keep important but delete everything else older than say, the most recent 3 episodes. That would be awesome!

                              The hide read/unread botton is practically the same. There's no way of telling which one it is. I want to make sure which one I have ( I keep pressing it to be sure my hide read episodes is active)

                                    I stream all podcasts instead of downloading to save space. I'd like to be able to have the option for each podcast title to automatically enque new episodes to the playlist as they are released.

                                    • Backup episodes read to preserved this info in the application needs to be reinstalled

                                      Episodes read are lost if application needs to be re-installed. This information should be backed up with other application user preferences. Backing up only subscriptions is inadequate for recovery.

                                        This feature has been delivered in v2.0.×. It allows you to backup everything (settings, subscriptions, episode flags, episode progress, playlist, …) except downloaded media files like episodes and thumbnails. The restore feature will allow you to trigger a full re-download of the episodes that were already downloaded on your previous device unless you copied them manually.

                                        For me addiction to podcast is not related to syringe. Syringe together with word "addiction" is totally negative symbol for me and is related with huge problems for some people. I really appreciate if you just consider about possibility to change the logo.

                                        Nobody wants to sit on the needle. It's not fun.
                                        Podcast addiction is fun.
