  1. Show all episodes (played, unplayed) of a specific podcast category

    I want to gain an overview (get context) of played and unplayed episodes of a group of podcasts of a specific category (e.g. all NASA podcasts grouped under my label NASA).

    • remove the connecting to ... dialog

      Hi everyone, plase cosider removing the connecting to dialog which appears after tapping the play button, in some cases it takes upto 10 seconds to connect and play the episode depending on connection speed. so this dialog blocks any activity on the app until it starts or fails to play, which is very annoying, I can add other episodes to the playlist or browse other podcasts in this 10 seconds.

      • Allow for full automatic backups to cloud storage at regular intervals

        Thanks to Google's backup systems, if my phone someday decides to go for a swim or the like, I know I will be able to recover almost all my data up to the crash. This app is the one major exception. In order to fix this, the backup system needs three improvements:

        1.) The option to automatically back up my full data, rather than just the OPML file.
        2.) The option to use cloud storage as a backup location, rather than just the device.
        3.) The option to set an automatic backup at a regular interval, rather than only when…

        • lock on app screen

          Not on the widget, but on the app screen itself.

          I'm not sure if my fingers are just too fat or I'm being too impatient, but I press the forward button on accident all the time. I know I could remove the forward button altogether, but I still use it. I'm wishing for something similar to the lock on Smart Audiobook Player (link below), where enabling the lock disables the other buttons on the app screen (or something to that effect). I hope that makes sense, and I apologize in advance if someone else has asked this question and I…

          • Vibrate earlier when sleep timer is about to expire

            When the phone vibrates because the sleep timer is about to expire, the volume immediately goes down, making me miss several seconds of the episode. After vibration there should be maybe 15 seconds or so before the volume starts to fade. That would give the user time to reach for the phone and shake it.

            • Add a "stop" button for radio podcast

              Since the only way to avoid ads is to stop streaming (long press on pause button) instead of pausing it, maybe would be nice to have a "stop" button near the "pause" button, for radio podcasts in particuliar. Long press behaviour is not very intuitive and there's room for such a button on the UI.

              • Second layer sorting

                Would it be possible to add a kind of second layer sorting so that it would be possible to sort by priority first and then sort them inside the priority in a specific manner (e.g. ascending by date instead of the current descending by date)

                • Sort playlist based on number of episodes available minus unlistened.

                  This idea is to attempt to never miss anything by old episodes never being downloaded due to no longer being on the podcast list. Prioritize by how close the oldest is to being made unavailable.

                    • Link from Player to info about current podcast

                      When I'm listening to a podcast and am on the Player screen, I'd like a simple way to get to the full entry for the podcast, with the podcast description, ability to favorite the podcast, etc.

                      • Low volume setting

                        The minimum volume isn't low enough ( with some podcasts) for listening at night, it would be great to have the option to reduce the volume even more.

                          • Group selected feeds at to of list in the "Manage the categories" screen

                            When editing an existing category, it would be great to have all the feeds already checked to be grouped at the top of the add podcast screen to quickly identify mis-categorized feeds. Or it could be an option to hide selected/unselected.

                            Thanks

                              • Create an auto save.

                                This would be very helpful for parents who have children that accidentally uninstall the app and all your podcasts and settings get lost.

                                  I love the "force download" warning when you're trying to download an episode with data downloads turned off. However, it would be cool if the file size was included in the warning, for concerned data users like myself.

                                    That’s a good idea. If the information is available then tit will be displayed in the next version of the app. Sometimes the information requires a connection to the podcast server to know about the file size and sometimes the server if not properly set up might not return it
                                    Next beta will have this implemented

                                  • LIFO last in, first out

                                    As part of the max episodes to keep and automatic cleanup, I'd like to option to have newer episodes bump it older ones... Then, if room opens up within the max downloaded count, for it to re download older episodes starting with the most recently published. In this way, I'm always listening to the most recent episodes (Moody newsworthy based on their recency), but not be without content if I've listened to the most recent x number of episodes... So this would need to ignore or be an option to the "cleanup episodes older than" setting.

                                    • Sort by saved criteria but stay in drag and drop mode

                                      I really like sorting my podcasts in the playlist by priority and then by publish date, but occasionally I want to do some custom drag and drop after that. It's too cumbersome to switch between the 2 modes at the moment because in order to switch to drag and drop you have to clear the current sort. Ideally I would like to always keep the playlist in custom sort but have a button to reapply my saved sort.

                                      • Favorites Exempted when you Override Automatic Cleanup?

                                        I want to "override Automatic Cleanup" settings on many of my podcasts, but the option to "Keep favorite episodes" only exists on the global Automatic Cleanup settings. Can you add this feature to the individual podcast cleanup settings or just clarify if it already respects the global setting?

                                        Thanks for your work, Podcast Addict makes my life better! :)
