  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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!

  5. 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!!

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. Add option to ignore podcast in last episode playlist

    I would like to be able to ignore some podcast in the last episode playlist. For example I would like to ignore podcast that I will listen in their parution order with a lot of episode not listen.

  11. Podcasts should be sorted by a weighted average by default

    When searching for a podcast to subscribe to, showing the closest match is good, but it's almost always counterproductive to show podcasts that have only 3 subscribers at the top, even if the name closely matches what I searched for--because on average, almost nobody is looking to find such a podcast. (Only three people chose it so far.)

    Instead of having to choose to sort by "Relevance" or "Number of subscribers", the default sort should be called something like "Best result".

    This default sort would use the weighted average between these two factors: I suggest the total weight (needs testing/tuning)…

  12. Podcast searches should match partial words, for example "freak" should find "freakonomics"

    When searching for a podcast to subscribe to, "freak" should find "freakonomics". The first use case is so save time, the second use case is that a title like this (with a made up word) might be hard for some people to spell.

  13. Feed Splitting

    Allow me to split out, for example, a single Patreon feed into individual shows. These feeds typically have strongly named episodes allowing filtering.
    Ideally I could toggle on and off a list of a list of any episodes that don't fit a filter.

  14. Improve error toast messages

    Give option to hide ALL (including error toast messages) toast messages

    Error toasts messages appear over other apps (negative user experience)
    Error toast messages don't link me to the problematic episode or podcast
    Error toasts aren't actionable for a user

    Make it so error toast messages don't appear over other applications

    Maybe put error toasts into the notification bar so they can be compressed or silenced

    Change UI of error toast messages to be actionable, maybe give option to change automatic update settings for podcast, flag specific episode as ignored, ask if they want to send app and mobile phone…

  16. Sort overview of all podcasts according to the last played podcasts

    It would be nice if you could add the sorting option "Sort by last played" for the start screen.
    So that at the top the podcast is displayed from which an episode is currently running or was last run, the 2nd in the row is then the podcast which was played before and so on. Hope you understand.

  17. Notification for download error

    Sometimes a podcast errors when downloading a new episode and I am waiting rest of day thinking it hasn't been posted. When all I really needed to do is retry the download. But the app marks it as downloaded because it was attempted and doesn't retry the download when I refresh.

    So a notification saying error happened downloading so I know I have to manually do it; or ideally when you refresh the app it will reattempt to download failed podcasts.

  18. sort publisher newest episode

    When you click on the "other podcast by x" option and get a full display of all a channels podcasts it would be nice to be able to sort from most recently updated instead of only an alphabetical list. A lot of publishers have hundreds of podcasts, so trying to find new podcasts this way is very difficult.

  20. sort the podcast list according to addition date

    a function that I miss is sorting the podcasts according to the adding date, so that I know which is the podcast subscription that I recently added. That would help when I add a podcast by its RSS URI.
