  1. A bug with episode thumbnails in list of episodes

    Looks like a bug with episode thumbnails in list of episodes: for downloaded and enqueued the thumbnail is replaced from episode-specific with the podcast-top-level-thumbnail making it difficult to distinguish episodes between each other. I can provide a screnshot.

      Please open a ticket using the ‘Contact support’ button to report a bug.
      I’m not sure there’s a bug in what you describe. When there’re no thumbnail available for episodes, the podcast thumbnail is used. Also make sure you didn’t enable Settings/Data usage/Thumbnail download/Wifi only, otherwise the thumbnails will only download over wifi

    • Auto start playback when connecting headphones

      It would be great if there was an option to start playback automatically when connecting headphones/headset. The idea is that I unplug them upon arriving at work and it stops, and about 8 hours later I plug them in and continue where I left off - awesomeness. It's also a good way to pause playback without handling your phone if you don't have headset buttons.

        You can already do this by enabling the following:

        Settings/Player/Headset/Keep listening to controls

        Settings/Player /Headset/Resume on connection

        That way the app will be able to start playback when plugging the headset even if the player isn’t started.
        But be carreful, because Podcast Addict will then react to every controls even if another app is opened

      • add ability to filter by downloaded episodes per subscription

        in the podcast subscription view, I would like to filter out all non-downloaded episodes, so I can just focus on the episodes available to me immediately on my phone storage.

          What you should do is enable automatic playlist (Settings/Playlist). That way downloaded episodes are automatically added to the playlist. Then you just need to open the playlist to have access to every content available on your device.

        • playlist

          Hello
          Since the last improvement i cannot classify my regitered podcast insside the playlist.
          I used to choose the order of listening and create a sort of personal playlist .the older version was easier ton configure (to sort but also to automatical download ).
          which is now impossible.)

            If you speak french, you can answer in french ;)

            Please open a ticket using the Contact support button in case of a bug.
            Don’t forget to specify which version of the app you are using.
            Playlist work the same as well as Automatic download, so please describe exaclty your settings and the step by step process you are following to reproduce this issue.

            • Choose a different icon for Podcast Addict

              The app's syringe icon, with its reference to injection and drug addiction is off putting and unprofessional. A mainstream app needs to have a more professional and attractive icon.

              I have been put off installing podcast addict for some time solely because of its icon, despite a friend having recommended the app to me. This is a shame, because it seems to be a decent podcast app.

              • Don't rewind on resume

                When you resume playing a podcast after disconnecting and later reconnecting a bluetooth headset, the playback position rewinds a considerable time; sometimes about 30 minutes, sometimes to around the 15 minute mark. Annoying in a 4 hour episode!

                  Please open a ticket using the ‘Contact Support’ button in case of a bug.
                  Can you please tell me which hardware you are using ? Looks like it might be a device with a MTK65xx CPU which has a severe bug. Those devices cannot resume from Playback using default Android APIs. You will have the same problem with every player app unless they developed a workaround for this specific hardware.

                    To delete all podcast, open the ‘Downloaded episodes’ Filter and select the delete all option in the menu. To delete a selection, use the menu ‘Action Mode’, then select the episodes you want to delete and press the delete button

                  • Automatic delete holds playlist progress

                    I have a problem (Samsung Galaxy S4), if automatic delete option is enabled, and I'm listening to several items. When the screen is off, and the podcast comes to an end, and should delete it and move on to the next in the playlist - it just sits there. The moment I unlock the phone, file is deleted (I see the notification) and the next item starts normally. If I remember correctly, it worked fine in some of the earlier versions.

                      Please open a Ticket using the ‘Contact support’ button to report a bug. FYI nothing has been modified regarding playlist and episode deletion in the latest updates. Did you change devices or upgraded the Android version recently ?

                    • syncroniser podcasts lu et non lu entre plusieurs appareils

                      Quand on utilise l'application sur plusieurs appareils on ne sait pas quels épisodes ont été lu sur l'autre appareil. Il faudrait que lorsque un épisode est lu sur un appareil, il sois marque comme lu sur l'autre appareil également.

                      • Sync across multiple android devices

                        Like pocket casts, maybe an option to sync feeds across multiple android device, eg. Smartphone and tablet.

                        • Bugfix de fluidité pour podcastscience

                          Le seul flux RSS pour lequel je comptais utiliser l'App fait terriblement ramer sa listview, au point de devenir inutilisable lorsqu'on veut un ancien épisode :
                          podcastscience.fm/feed

                          Je pensais que c'était un problème général, mais il semble que les autres flux ne soient pas aussi lents.

                          Problème constaté sur mes deux appareils : HTC Desire Z (Android 2.3.3, Snapdragon S2 800Mhz) et tablette Acer A210 (Android 4.1.1, Tegra 3)

                          Un autre flux testé (Radio01.net) laggue un peu sur Snapdragon S2, mais ça reste bien plus utilisable.
                          C'est nickel sur un Tegra3, par contre.

                            NRP Tiny Desk Concert Videos seem only ones that will not show video so suggest format support. Other podcast players support it but they are not as nice as Podcast Addict

                              Please open a ticket using the ‘Contact Support’ button if there’s an issue with the app.
                              Also I’m not sure what the problem is.
                              The Tiny Desk Concert feed provided within the app is an audio feed, so i’s OK to not have video.
                              You can add the video feed using it’s URL and it should work. Unless you already did that and there’s an issue when trying to play the video.

                              Please give me more information and the URL of the feeds you’re talking about.

                              Thanks

Attention ça peut lancer BEAUCOUP de téléchargements. Tu as aussi cette option dans le Filtre ‘Derniers épisodes publiés’ qui affiche les épisodes publiés les 7 derniers jours

                                      You can already do this.
                                      From the playlist screen you can long press on an episode and select Dequeue. Or from a scren with a list of episodes (Downloadede episodes filter from example) enable the Action Mode in the menu. Then select episodes you want to dequeue and select the Dequeue action in the menu.

                                      I have many RSS feed podcast which gives only 100 items per page and link to the next 100 items. However in podcast Addict when I scroll down I can only see top 100 episodes not more than that. There is currently no way to see the items of subsequent pages.

                                        Podcast Addict displays the full content of the RSS feed, not less, not more.
                                        In your case it means the RSS feed as been limited to the 1000 last episodes. Other app may server based, that’s why you might be able to retrieve older episodes. By server based I mean that they are not parsing the RSS feed in the app but on server side, while storing past episodes. The problem with this solution is that when the server is killed (like Google reader) apps based on this solution won’t work anymore.

                                        Playlist reordering is messed up. It always grabs the one above where I click. It is impossible to drag the last item in the playlist. Seems like an off by one error.

                                          Try clearing the playlist using its menu button, then repopulate it using its ‘Enqueue downloaded episodes’ menu. Are you still having an issue ?
