  1. A few remarks...

    Hi, first of all I want to tell you that I love the app! I use it everyday and I've got a playlist for days to come!
    I just wanted to tell you about a few things I saw. For example the playback statistics don't seem to line up. I have more listened hours in the month of November 2018 than in the while 2018...
    Also, when I force close the app, the podcast is still playing, I have to pause it from the notification bar and sometimes that gets a little buggy and it doesn't let me swipe the…

    • See all favorited episodes from all podcasts in one place

      I like to save episodes for my partner to listen to later from numerous podcasts. It would be a HUGE help to have a tab on the left hand menu under "all episodes" for all favorites.

        • Automatic download on wi-fi only

          I want to be able to tell the app that I want to download episodes on my cellular network only when I manually choose to do so. I'd like automatic downloads to update my podcasts to only happen when I'm on wi-fi. At the moment, it seems that I can have one or the other -- I can disallow downloading over 4G entirely, so that automatic downloads only happen over wi-fi, but if I want to download a single episode over 4G, I have to allow all downloads over 4G, which may then try to download half a dozen episodes.…

            In order to do so, please enable automatic download and restrict the downloads to WiFi only.
            Then when you try to download an episode manually the app will ask you if you want to force that specific episode to download over mobile data. You can also go into the download manager screen and force episodes to download over mobile data

              • Improve Android auto interface by having buttons that allow podcasts to be displayed in reverse order on the various lists sections

                Basically Android auto locks the user out before she is able to scroll thru even 15 podcasts... There need to be shortcut keys that reset the Android auto timer such that a user can scroll to select episodes, or skip to the end of the list.

                  Sorry but there’s no way to workaround those Android Auto security feature.
                  The app displays episodes list following the app sort mode. If you change the sort mode in the app then it will apply also to Android Auto

                • Add a playback button on shortcut control

                  When the phone is locked, the shortcut controls allow the user to play, pause and skip forward but they do not allow to play or skip back some seconds. This would be extremely useful since lots of people listen to podcast while working and it is easy to miss some important information said. The buttom would allow to go back a few seconds without the need of unlocking the phone.

                  • Keep Podcast addict always On

                    Hi,
                    Is-it possible to keep Podcast addict always Open ?
                    My problem is when I shut down my phone (Galaxy S7) or hard-close the app. Podcast addict and my podcast start not automatically again when I plug my Bluetooth headphone.

                      • Returning to the old shortcut icon

                        I think the old round icon for the app on my home screen looked better. It really stood out. Just sayin :)

                              There should be possibility to skip ads when someone is annoyed by them. Some not even make sense in region of listening. This could be done in way similar to https://github.com/abertschi/ad-free for spotify.

                              • Only keep X most recent episodes downloaded / Delete least recent, downloaded episode

                                The app should have the option to automatically delete the least recent episode currently downloaded to make room for new episodes as they become available when the user has defined a maximum number of episodes to keep downloaded.

                                Current behaviour when using automatic downloads of episodes in Archive mode, used in conjunction with the "Keep at most" setting in Automatic cleanup, results in new episodes to not be downloaded if the user defined limit of episodes to keep is already reached. If the user then manually downloads the latest episode a seemingly random downloaded episode from the podcast is deleted…

                                  Please disable the archive mode. Then the app will download new episodes as they are published up to X episodes. After that every time a new episode is published the app will delete the oldest downloaded one before downloading the new episode

                                  Even if I am doing anything with the app, it keeps running in the background consuming over than 60 MB of my 256 MB smartphone's RAM. Please add an option to disable the background run

                                    The app requires the background service in order to work properly. If the app is still using 60MB of RAM it just means that your device hasn’t needed more resources for now, otherwise Android would have notify the app about resources being low and the app would have cleared its cache freeing all that RAM. Apps not complying are killed.
                                    Android is doing a relaly good job in handling the resources/RAM

                                  • The app seems to have problems with mp3 locating

                                    Some episodes do not locate correctly near the end of the episode. They will play through if I let the episode run from the beginning, but if I stop then restart, playback will resume from an earlier point. I also can not locate to the correct point as the play point will always be interpreted as an earlier point in the episode. Downloading the episode does not help. However, other apps do not have the problem. Here's an example:

                                      This website is dedicated to new feature request. In case of an issue please send me an email.
                                      Playback is handled by the device built-in player, not by the app. This issue means that the device doesn’t fully support the file encoding. In that case every app relying on the device player will have the same issue.
                                      Please let me kno if you’re using any audio effect such as playback speed, volume boost or skip silence so I can check if there’s a workaround to try

                                      Thanks

                                      I wanted to give this tip to anyone who loves Podcast Addict but it is taking up too much space on their phone.
                                      I was regularly getting notifications "storage space running out" on my 15 GB Android Moto X phone.
                                      4GB of that data was from Podcast Addict, which was far more than any other app. So I deleted a lot of podcast subscriptions. This space used did not include downloading any episodes. But I still had 2 GB of data or space used by Podcast Addict.
                                      I finally got tired of it. I decided all I really needed was…

                                        The app doesn’t use much space. Only downloaded files episodes and artwork will use space. You can go into the app ‘downloaded episodes’ screen and delete episodes to free some space, but you can also automate deletion in Settings/Automatic cleanup so you don’t have to manage this manually.
                                        Clearing the app data to save space isn’t a good solution because it means losing all your settings, playback progress, playlist, …

                                        Unless it's a setting I haven't found, the app needs the option to stream episodes in order oldest to newest without having to deal with playlists.

                                          The app will play content depending on the sorting of the queue.
                                          You need to open the player screen, then swipe right to show the queue content and from there you can use the toolbar sorting button to customize the order

                                          I'm having a hard time choosing which shows to download. In any view, there's no way to show [Unread+Non-downloaded ] list to choose from. I'd really appreciate if you can add it to any view. Thanks!

                                            You can open any podcast screen and use the filter called ‘NOT downloaded’ to see those episodes.
                                            BTW you can hide played episodes by pressing on the toolbar ‘eye’ button
