  1. 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)

    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

  2. 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

  4. 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!

    You can define the number of episodes to keep in Settings/Automatic Cleanup.
    You can also override this global settings for each Podcast. Long press on the podcast (main screen) and select ‘Custom Settings’ from the menu

  5. Add support for Google Chromecast

    It would be awesome if Podcast Addict had support for playing content through Google's new Chromecast device. Google Cast API can be found at the link below:
    https://developers.google.com/cast/

    Please see about adding support for this feature.

  6. customize read/unread episodes

    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)

  7. Add Play/Pause/Skip ahead/back/Next to the notifications area

    Right now I can only pause playback from the Notifications field. I would love to be able to also resume playback from it. And during playback, be quickly able to skip ahead without having to open the app.

    The player notification can be expanded to display more controls as well as a button to close the player

    Make sure you didn’t enabled ‘Settings/Player/Hide notification on Pause’ to be able to use this notification even when the player is paused

  8. Setting to modify font size

    Currently you can not modify the font size. My screen is small and the default font is quite small

  9. A feature to automatically enque new episodes to the playlist, even if not downloaded (stream only)

    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.

  10. 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.

  11. Logo refresh

    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.

  12. Recherche par catégorie

    Proposer une liste de catégories: humour, insolite, zap, politique, sport. En cliquant sur l'une des catégories, cela afficherait des podcast correspondants. Un grand merci à l'auteur de nous permettre de faire évoluer son application.

    This feature is available in the latest version of the App on the Play Store.
    On Android 2.x you can add a shortcut to your homescreen that can open the app on the Playlist or the Player.
    On Android 3.x and 4.x you will be able to do the same using the new Shortcut Widgets

  14. save the default playlist order - so it doesn't have to be selected each time

    Currently you can select the playlist order, but each time you download more podcasts you have reselect "sort by XXXXXXXXXXX" (or resort manually).

    It'd be better if a chosen "sort by XXXXXXXXXXX" could be a default that is automatically applied each time new podcasts are downloaded.

    Thank you.

  16. Remove extra icons

    First of all, congrats for a very good app. I am trying the free app and considering to buy it. I think adding extra icons to the drawer should be an option on the settings. 3 icons is too much in my case.

    Thanks.

    Podcast Addict v2.3 est en cours de publication.

    Une nouvelle option est dispo afin de ne pas stopper la lecture d’une video lorsque l’écran est éteint.
    Ca n’est pas le comportement par défaut, mais il est possible de le modifier dans “Paramètres/Player/Ecran éteint”

    the download progress is available in the download notification (progress bar + %), and if you press on the download notification it opens the list of every episodes in the download Queue. You can also open this list using the filter called ‘Download in progress’.
    I suggest that you vote for the following suggestion, that will add a real download manager into the app:

  19. Support for paged-feeds

    Support for paged-feeds (RFC 5005) would help me a lot !

  20. Keep the title at full width while playing a playlist

    This is just a cosmetic change. Currently a pause button on the right decreases the available width for the title.

    Placing that button next to the progress bar, that is: only a little bit lower, would solve this. And it would both look better and show more of the most relevant title: the one now playing.
