  1. Check volume boost function, please.

    When using the volume boost function, it consumes battery a lot and the heat of the cell phone becomes severe. Make sure that the volume boost function is working properly.

    • Open any links in the episode description as a WebView popup

      I recently started using Podcast Addict. A few times, when I click on a link in the episode description, it opens as a popup on the screen so that I can view the webpage without leaving the app.
      However, this only triggers sometimes and the popup doesn't have a close button. The popup doesn't close with the back button either, which closes the player itself.
      I have not been able to come across a setting to enable/disable the popup, and if one does exist, kindly point me towards it.
      If this does not exist natively, it does occur within the…

        • Modify Sleep timer setting Keep Episode

          Allow the advanced setting "Keep Episode" to work without requiring the setting "Stop at the end of the current episode".
          Currently I am accomplishing this functionality by disabling the automatic cleanup but only when using the sleep timer.

          • Give us the option to disable caching artwork for podcasts we're not subscribed to

            I'm only subscribed to a handful of podcasts, but the thumbnails folder for this app is nearly 2 gigabytes in size. Looking inside, I find that this app keeps a cache of every thumbnail it downloads while searching for new podcasts, even if I don't subscribe to them. Could you please add some way to disable this automatic caching?

            • Have an option to automatically mark episodes as read when there's only a few minutes or seconds left

              It's frustrating to finish one episode, only to have the tail end of another episode start playing. I'd like to be able to not have to manually mark episodes as read when I turn them off during the outro. Not all outros are the same length, so the option to skip outro wouldn't necessarily fulfill this request.

              Anyways, love the app. Thank you for your work!

                You can either set the app to skip the last XX secnds of the podcast (Skip outro setting) or you can long press on the player next episode button to delete the curent episode s if it was fully listened to before switching to the following episode

                  You can customize the sorting of any screen either from the toolbar sort button or the option menu sort entry.
                  If you want each screen to have its own sorting you can go into Settings/Display/Podcasts and enable Custom sorting
                  Feel free to contact me if you have any question

                  • Add app shortcut to update podcasts

                    I often end up having to open the app just to update the podcasts. It would be very helpful if you could add the option of updating podcasts to the app shortcut menu.

                      • Change the effect of hitting back on the playlist screen.

                        I use the widget in 1x4 mode and usually just tap on the picture to open the player. I often instinctively push back to attempt to return to the main podcast screen. This just causes the app to close through. I find this mildly frustrating since I feel most apps don't work like that. I can see reasons for the current situation but the way I use the widget it's not helpful.

                          Pressing on the back button returns to the previous screen until you ’re back on the app main screen. From that screen, pressing back will leave the UI. When you open the app from the player notification or a widget then the opening screen is the player screen, so this behavior is normal

                          Very frequently during streaming a podcast there will be an "internal player error" that will stop the the podcast in the middle of playing. It happens at least a couple of times per a couple hours of streaming something.

                          • When adding an episode to playlist, the confirmation message should have a link to open

                            When I add new episodes to the playlist, I often want to reorder the playlist consequently. The blue confirmation message "Added to playlist" have an icon for full screen (why?), it should have also one to go to the playlist.

                              It doesn’t have any icon.
                              My guess is that you’re on the episode description screen. If so you can see a full screen button at the bottom right corner of the screen.
                              This button remains displayed over the ble banner that’s why you’re seing it..
                              You can access the playlist fron the navigation sidebar screen

                                    • add a feature to skip download/playlist if the description matches a given keyword.

                                      I hav PA set to download and enqueue podcasts automatically, but there are a couple that have guest hosts or specific topics that I'd rather not download at all. I'd like to add those names or keywords to list that, if it matches the podcast title/description, PA doesn't download the episode and instead just marks it as played.

                                      • When using Podcast Addict in Android Auto mode, add forward 30 second button - allows skipping forward.

                                        • Put the "Virtual Podcast" button back on the Add Podcast screen

                                          A very recent update has removed the "Virtual Podcast" button from the Add Podcast screen. I see that I can dig into the menu to find it, but this is much more tedious. Instead there are buttons for specific podcasts that 99.999% of the time are not going to be what anyone wants, whereas a substantial portion of users are going to be adding a virtual podcast (the vast majority of the time for me).

                                          I've been using this app for years and there has always been a button for virtual podcasts.

                                            The toolbar only provides access to the search engine.
                                            Every other kind of content is available through the sdcreen option menu (RSS feed url, virtual podcast, search based podcast, suggested podcasts, …)
