  1. 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.

  2. create a profile that you can save previously read podcasts since its pretty cumbersome when transferring to a new phone or device, GreatAPP

    Maybe you can save the sync or profile in the Google Drive is easily accessible across all devices a user owns.

    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.

  3. Set a custom image for rss feeds?

    The ability to set a custom image as the rss feed to be used for the feed itself and also individual items where image is missing.

  5. Ban that light blue background showing a counter of the unread episodes.

    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. Add favorite podcasts feature to force selected podcasts to the top of the playlist

    ***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.

    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

  7. Allow device to be locked (screen off) for video podcasts.

    Sometimes, we can´t be staring at the screen for video podcasts- when we´re driving for instance. So having your smartphone locked saves battery and avoids unwanted actions (stop, delete, etc)

    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

  8. Show podcast size, length, and download progress

    There is no way to tell how long the podcast is until it is download and there is no way to tell the size or status of a download.

  9. allow podcasts to be automatically marked read after a certain percentage has been listened to

    There are a few podcasts I cut short as I don't listen to the ending portions of them.

    It would be nice to have a setting where they can be automatically marked read after you've listened to 90% or more, with the percentage required being variable.

    Or possibly if there's under a certain amount of time left in them. Thanks!

    Duplicated entry: please vote for this feature instead

    http://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/forums/211997-general/suggestions/4230275-mark-podcast-as-listened-when-is-95-done

    ========

    I will add a new setting to allow skipping episodes outro.
    This will be a podcast custom setting.
    You will have to select the number of seconds to skip at the end of the podcast. Once this threshold is reached the app will consider that the episode has been fully listened to so depending on your settings it will be marked as read, deleted, removes from the playlist and the resume position will be reset.

    This will be release in v3.4

    Edit: Available in the latest beta.
    Feel free to test it and to give me some feedback

    Thanks

  10. Add support for chapter marks

    For long audio files support for chapter marks would be great. See here: http://auphonic.com/blog/2013/07/03/chapter-marks-and-enhanced-podcasts/

  11. Communicate title via Bluetooth

    If an app provides title metadata via intent, then a car radio or any other display connected via bluetooth could display track title or even display a cover image (if both devices support this, this is since AVRCP 1.3)

  12. correct spelling...

    "Latests podcasts" should read "Latest podcasts" - as this is the page that I look at the most often, it would be best if the English was correct (I know that in French you add an "s" to adjectives that describe plural nouns, but that isn't done in English.)

    Google added some new native features in Android 6.0 which allows changing video playback speed.
    I’ll try adding this, but it will only work on Android 6.0 and above

    Edit: this feature should be available in v3.18 for Android 6.0 devices only

    Edit2: This feature is available in the latest beta. Please give it a try and let me know if it works fine. The speed is limited to 2.2x because Android API seems to have some issues above

    Edit3: Delivered in v3.18

  14. Skip tracks that cannot be played

    If you have a track in the playlist that cannot be played (for example, it's not been downloaded and you don't have a wifi connection currently) then rather than entirely stopping playback, the track should skipped until one that can be played is found.

  15. Preserve file name

    Preserve the original file name of the podcast. I understand that each download must have a unique file name -- if the original file name is already unique to everything on the phone storage directory, please leave the original file name intact. The podcasts I download are uniquely named, starting with the date as yyyymmdd so it's easy to watch the files in the correct order and be sure you've received every podcast.

    After every update the widget disappears. Is this normal?

    Your frequent updates make this irritating.

  18. filtrage des épisodes par nom

    Certains podcasts mélangent des épisodes de type différents, par exemple le best of, les titres, etc.
    Il serait intéressant de pouvoir filtrer ceux qu'on veut éviter ou au contraire selectionner.
    Une simple liste de mots clé s

  19. No automatic rewind after a notification

    after an audio notification (SMS Mail...), the podcast is rewinded with the amount of time configured in the Automatic Rewind parameter.
    No need to rewind in this case. Only rewind after a manual pause or after the end of a timer.

  20. Mark podcast as listened when is 95% done

    When a podcast is done, I skip to the next in queue. I dont want to listen to the entire outro.

    As it is now, this leaves a bunch of 99% listened podcasts in my playlist, which is annoying.
