General

  1. let the app open the Episode List/Podcasts page after pressing [Back <] after cold-opening from a widget

    Normally, the app 'remembers' what the last view was, so the flow of a regular app drawer open goes something like:

    open via app icon -> opens Podcasts overview page -> opens selected Podcast Episode List -> opens Player view

    Pressing the [Back <] button on Android normally returns it to its last remembered view. However, when opening from a widget, it jumps directly into Player view:

    open via widget -> Player View

    and pressing [Back <] just causes the app to minimize instead, because apart from Player View it has no more remembered views.

    This normally isn't an issue…

  3. Allow to subscribe to the same podcast twice, each with different episodes filter

    There is a podcast with two types of episodes. I want to have two subscription with the same rss address. I will set a different episode filter in each.
    Currently I can't subscribe to podcast that I already have.

  4. Remove new episode alert when downloaded

    On Android, when I update and see a new episode I want I download it within the alert/notification. I then see 2 alerts, one for the download and still the new episode that I just downloaded. Can the downloading/ new download alert replace the new episode alert?

  5. Allow Continuous Playback feature to be modified by "custom Settings"

    I love the continuous playback feature and almost always have it enabled. However, in most contexts I want it to play only new episodes, whereas in other contexts, like the KEXP song of the day podcast, I want it to play everything.

    Currently you would have to adjust global preferences to toggle played/all and downloaded/all, each time. It would be nice if you could override the default continuous playback behavior on a per-podcast basis, with the "custom Settings" if at all possible.

    Thanks!

  6. Make the new player buttons hideable

    2021.13 introduced new buttons in the player, for audio mixing and bookmarks above the player. They take up a lot of space on all 3 views of the player. There should be an option to hide/move these, if I don't want to use them, and gain back valuable screen space on the description and queue, as well as make the UI look less cluttered.

  7. Filter thumbs-up/thumbs-down episodes

    Allow display of episodes that have been given thumbs-up/down.
    Also, allow episodes to be given thumbs-up/down after having been listened to; I've listened while driving, and wanted to give thumbs-up to an episode, but wasn't able to because the episode ended before I got to a safe position.

  8. Sort by full filepath

    When there are many virtual podcasts (i.e. audiobooks consisting of many mp3 files) it is becoming important to be able to sort those by Podcast Name (book) and then by filename or Name (because publish date is the same for all them). Doing so with existing Advanced sorting options (i.e. select sort by Podcast Name and then by filename) does not work for whatever reason - the podcasts remain mixed up. One simple and straightforward solution would by to add an option to sort by Full Path. This would rely on and respect user's preference is for podcast arrangement. Having…

  9. Enlarge the tap area for an episode's 3 dot menu

    The tap area for the 3 dot menu on episodes is way too small. My fingers are tiny but I still am constantly ending up on the episode page instead of opening the 3 dot menu. I don't know how to explain this better, but I'm referring to the 3 dots on episodes right above the button to download them when you're looking at the list of episodes in a podcast.

  10. Delay deletion and removal from playlist until play stops

    I find I not infrequently ‘lose control’ of the player: I fall asleep, have to deal with something urgent, have a driving situation, or whatever. When I get back I find that one or more podcasts have played through and been autodeleted, making it very hard to figure out what has and has not been listened to. If cleanup were delayed until after the next explicit interaction, I could just go to the playlist and search around for the point at which I stopped being able to listen.

  11. Add sort option consistent with 'Download older first'

    I like to listen to some of my subscribed podcasts newest episodes first, and some other podcasts oldest episode first. The 'download older first' setting is great for helping with this, but there is not a corresponding podcast sort option. Therefore, I have to choose to sort all my podcasts either new>old or old>new in the auto playlist and episode lists. Ideally, it would be great if there was a podcast sorting option which sorts podcasts by date depending on if they have 'download older first' checked, so that:
    - Podcasts with 'download older first' checked sort old > new…

  12. Add "Mark Newer Episodes as Played" above the choice "Mark Older Episodes as Played"

    Along with the existing choice of "Mark Older Episodes as Played" when clearing out a list of podcasts, could you add the choice "Mark Newer Episodes as Played". Upon adding a new podcast, there are some newer eps on the subject I may not be interested in, and it would be nice to clear them out with such an option. Another option would be a "Hold/Unhold" toggle on a single episode, so when a choice to Mark a newer/older ep as played, it would skip over anything marked by the user as "hold". There could also be an option to…

  13. Link to the transcript (rel=transcript)

    In addition to Podcast Addict reading the transcript from the RSS feed (https://podcastaddict.com/changelog/2020_14#section1).

    Unfortunately my podcast host doesn't support this feature. It would be great if links to the transcript (for instance with rel=transcript tag, just like rel=payment) in the episode description would be picked up by the player and the link displayed in the transcript button (https://podcastaddict.com/assets/web/changelog_2020_14_section1_1.jpg).

    Hope this makes sense, I would be happy to explain further if necessary. Thank you!

  14. Allow customisation of list view

    For example, I'm not a big fan of having either the update date or the time since update. I'd also much rather it didn't show total number of episodes but either unplaced or downloaded episodes. I'm sure other options for folks too!!

    Keep up the incredible work!!

  16. Show the percentage played of each podcast episode in the list of episodes

    In the list of episodes (played or not played), show the percentage played of each episode that's been played. Often, I pause an episode and go to a different episode or podcast, or listen to the radio. I'd like to come back to the podcast and see the percentage played of the episodes that I've started listening to, in the list of the episodes, without having to click on each episode for more details. Just to show more useful information on the lists screens. Castbox does this very well. Thanks.

  18. Podcast Specific "Add to Playlist Position"

    Currently, it's set up to be universal. All downloaded episodes go in the front, or the end, or after the current episodes. But I have some podcasts that I want added to the end of the playlist, and some I want added at the beginning, and some I want to be added after my current episode. Being able to make those decisions per podcast as opposed to a universal rule.

  19. Add an option to order by Remaining percentage

    Sorting by Remaining percentage would be very useful, I think, to keep half-played episodes at the top of the playlist.

    My current situation as example:

    I currently have my playlist set to order by priority and publication date. This is great, except when I've already started an episode and an episode with higher priority is released, it will be added above the current item in the playlist (which is logical, of course, because of the order I set.)

    If there were an option to sort by Remaining percentage, I could use that and it would keep the current playing episode…
