  1. Skip to timestamp through episode description text

    Hi,
    Quite a few podcasts do not have chapter marks :( but instead put timestamps (hh:mm - topic) into the episode description (the text that shows when tapping the episode cover in the player).
    Would it be possible to make these timestamps clickable to skip to the corresponding section of the podcast, possibly taking playback speed into account?
    This would be wonderful.
    Afaik AntennaPod already does this, maybe worth a look.
    Thank you.

                  • Show date last played in podcast history view

                    When an episode is added to the podcast history view, show the date it was last played. This would make the podcast history useful as a listening log.

                    Some podcasts count as continuing education credit for maintaining professional certifications. This information would be useful as evidence when claiming those credits. Currently, I have to manually track dates listened of certain episodes outside of the app.

                    • Highlight the podcast currently played

                      Hi it would be nice to display the podcast currently played in a different colour .
                      I know it can be spotted with the pause symbol but it is not obvious at all.
                      Thanks a lot

                      • Add "mark done" to the Android Auto player.

                        In Android Auto, after swiping on the episode's player, there should be an option to mark the episode as played/done. Currently, this is not possible in Android Auto, and switching to the next episode requires navigating the playlist.

                        Pocket Casts has this feature, and one of few things that I miss.

                          This has been delivered in the latest version of the app

                          ==========

                          An extra bouton will be added in the upcoming version to delete the current file, mark it as played and then skip to the next episode.
                          It should be available in the next beta in a couple of hours

                          There are several sorting possibilities but I like sort my podcasts by the number of unlisten items

                          • Turn up volume message if at 0%

                            When you hit the Play button, check if the volume is at 0% and show a toast saying 'Please turn up the volume'. Similar to what WhatsApp does when playing an audio note.

                            • Use the native notification style

                              As you all probably know, in Android 5 the default notification style uses white background and black/grey text, as opposed to older versions that used a dark gray background.

                              Almost 3 years have passed since then... and the only app I have installed that still uses a dark notification is Podcast Addict. Even worse: it's not even the old style KK/JB notification style, it's black rather than dark grey, seems to be a completely custom color scheme.

                              So... is there a reason PA keeps using this custom color scheme? It's really ugly on most current devices...

                              Thanks for the awesome…

                                Delivered in v3.43.3

                                ========

                                Next version will have a new setting allowing you to choose between Podcast Addict custom layout and the device default layout for the player notification. If you disable the Custom layout then you the player notification should use the proper background color.
                                A 1st beta should be available later this weekend

                              • Category Playlist

                                It would be amazing if we could set up a playlist of categories. So, for example, if I had 4 categories of podcasts, news, sports, tech, and entertainment, it would play the first podcast episode from each category, then rotate back up to the top of the list. This way, you never get two of the same show, or even two of the same type of show, in a row, with zero playlist management.

                                  Podcast Addict v3.42 has just been released.
                                  This new version finally adds support to multiple playlists.

                                  In order to use this new feature, you can go into the Playlists screen and select the new ‘Custom’ tab.
                                  Then you can select the category of your choice and listen to it.
                                  Those default categories are provided by the podcast owner in their RSS feeds, but you can press on the toolbar ‘Category’ button and add/delete/customize them.
                                  That way you can create playlists like News, Commute, Workout, Audiobooks, SFW, …
                                  Each playlist can have its own sorting mode.

                                  Please let me know what you think about this new feature

                                  Thanks

                                  =========

                                  The new beta allows you to play podcasts by category. The UI is still a work in progress but the feature works.
                                  On the app main screen you can filter by the category of your choice and then press on the…

                                • Previous in Shuffle mode goes to the last listened podcast

                                  Current behavior:
                                  When shuffled mode is turned on, previous goes to a random podcast.

                                  Example of current behavior:
                                  Hit shuffle, plays ep X
                                  Hit next by accident, plays ep Y
                                  Hit previous, plays podcast Z

                                  Expected behavior:
                                  Previous button should play the last listen item. This is useful because I might accidentally hit next but then I have no way of going back. Spotify uses this behavior for Previous.

                                  Example of Spotify behavior:

                                    This has been delivered in the latest version of the app

                                    ==========

                                    Next version of the app will allow you to return to the previous episode if you press next ONCE. If the current episode finishes, and the app skips to a random new episode, then pressing previous will skip to a random episode as well

                                  • List and search bookmarks

                                    Currently you can only access the bookmarks inside its chapter. So I have to remember what chapter was bookmarked.
                                    It would be great if there's a list of bookmarks (and/or search box) feature.

                                    • Create Custom Lists

                                      I often use podcasts for research into specific topics so being able to create custom lists and manually add podcasts to it would be great. The podcast search feature is great but to have additional manual control would be great too.

                                        This feature has been delivered a couple of weeks ago. The app now allows you to listen to podcasts by category. You cna add/remove/edit those categories.

                                      • intent pause download +manager

                                        Due to varying tariffs and bandwidth usage on my usual network connection, I'd like to use an intent from Tasker to automatically pause/ unpause the download manager at certain times of day or when other schedules or sitations happen (of course I can still manually pause/unpause it).

                                        Its a pain to change it so frequently in order to queue up downloads later that I don't need now. [I hunted hard to see if anyone else wrote this one, please comment with title/link to other if its a duplicate]

                                        • Add a playlist order that will alternate between all the podcasts regardless of how old they are

                                          This is hard to explain in a title. I want to listen to all my podcasts in chronological order. However, because podcast 1 started in 2011, and podcast 2 starts in 2013, I'm stuck listing to podcast 1 in bulk for a long time.

                                          What would be great to have is a sort feature that would play the oldest (or newest, if you prefer that) episode of podcast 1, then the oldest of episode of podcast 2 (then oldest of podcast 3 or 4,etc). Once it's cycled through all the podcasts, it would then start on the second oldest of…
