  1. Recent issue with Android Auto and episode deletion

    --Recent issue with Android Auto and episode deletion--

    This SEEMS to have started happening with the recent upgrade to android auto. Basically anytime the episode being listened to is deleted, android auto can no longer see ANY podcasts in the app. (and sometimes indicates that podcast addict is no longer functioning)

    This happens if I use the UI to manually delete an episode OR when an episode automatically deletes when completed. The work-around seems to be to disconnect and reconnect the phone.

  2. Notification area rewind

    Restore the rewind button in the notification area drop-down and lockscreen. This went away with a recent update, and I miss the feature. Alternatively, the option to add the rewind button there via a Settings dialogue would be fine.

    I'm currently running PA 4.3 on a OnePlus 3T (OxygenOS 5.0.7, which seems pretty close to stock Android) with Android 8.0.0.

  3. Improve bulk delete of podcasts

    Allow us bulk-delete downloaded podcasts, either by a) single-swipe to delete, or b) allowing to select a string of podcasts for bulk-delete

    You can select multiple episodes in any screen showing episodes and then apply the action of your choice (which can be deletion)
    The select mode can be enabled from the screen toolbar/option menu.
    You can also long press on an episode artwork to enable the quick select mode

  4. Add Chromecast commands for next episode, previous episode when casting

    Additional functionality on Chromecast when casting to tv. Ie next episode, previous episode, skip, rewind etc

  5. I would suggest to add a play next button

    Right now one has to create a playlist in order to do this, but I'd just like to be able to mark a specific episode to play after the current episode has ended.

    What you’re asking already exists.
    The playlist feature allows you to select the next playing episode by pressing on ‘add to playlist’ while listening to the current episode
    Feel free to send me an email if you have any question (Settings/Feedback)
    Thanks

  6. Ad killer

    I would recommend (not sure if it's even possible) the ability of having the app fast forward the section of a podcast that includes advertisement from a sponsor.

  7. The restore option doesn't work. can't restore either full backup or OPML.

    ok so you can't restore OPML cause the backup option filters out anything that's not ".backup", and you can't restore ".backup" cause it just doesnt' work.

    scenario. old samsung phone -> new samsung phone. transfer apps using samsung smart transfer. restore from backup doesn't work. try it some time. it's hideous

  9. Fix your product.

    Playback on various downloaded podcasts results in spinning icon. Never gets past the specific time. Terrible app. The fixes suggested are not related to this issue or one specific podcast.

    Please send me an email in case you have questions so I can help (Settings/Feedback/Email)
    Once you plug your phone to Android Auto you will be able to select Podcast Addict in the player screen.
    After that you can press play and browse for content

  12. Alphabetizing and omitting, the word "The" when it is the first word in the name of a podcast subscription

    There are a TON of podcasts with the word, "The" as the first word in the name of the podcast (i.e. 'The Joe Rogan Experience,' 'The Partially Examined Life,' etc.) It would be cool if when sorted alphabetically, I could find 'The Joe Rogan Experience" by scrolling to the "J" podcasts and "The Partially Examined Life" by scrolling to the "P" podcasts.

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  16. 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

  19. 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

  20. 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.
