  1. Offer Ad Free Version for Patrons on Patreon

    I'm trying to move off of Google products as much as possible, and would love it if Podcast Addict was available ad-free for Patrons on Patreon.

  2. create folder for episodes marked as played to unclutter Recent Episodes folder

    If I have a couple of dozens of new episodes I may not necessarily want to play all of thenm. As I mark them "played", they still remain in Recent Episodes creating clutter over time. If you move the "Marked as Played" episodes to a dedicated folder, e.g., " Episodes Marked as Played" that'll make Recent Episodes folder more neat focused and friendly.

  3. Shuffle button for selected podcasts and episodes

    Not all podcasts are sequential. I would like the ability to shuffle episodes in selected podcasts so I can listen to a random episode among those that are not sequential.

    You can enable the Shuffle button in Settings/Player/Controls, then you can toggle it at any time in the player screen to shuffle the current playlist. Feel free to contact me if you have any question (Settings/Feedback)

  4. Notes for podcasts

    Would be a nice feature to be able to keep a note as to how the story left off if time between episodes is too long and you don't need to re listen to episodes again.

  5. Bookmark "Direct Play"

    Add the possibility to play a episode when a bookmark is selected (actually it does nothing, podcast must be "played" to active bookmark selection.
    Eventually add a time option to play the bookmark with delayed time before.

  6. Add rules to download or not episodes

    In the feed podcast of the RMC radio for exemple there is the full emission during 3 hours more 1 episode for the first hour and this for the second hour and this for the third and the chronique of X etc..
    It would be great to have rules like (do not)/download episode only if longer/shorter Than X minutes
    Download only if bigger than X Mo.

  7. SD Card. Automatic cleanup and episode deletion

    Add the ability to manually delete episodes and automatic cleanup when storing files, particularly virtual podcasts, on a memory card outside of the app's folder. Apparently, this requires asking for permission to write to the memory card, like third-party file managers or other apps that allow you to create/delete files do, using Android Storage Access Framework.

  8. While downloading, the episode appears (in grey) in the playlist so we can place it where we want

    I usually download manually episode I want to listen first while I already have many episode in my playlist.
    I set the new downloads to be added automatically in the playlist and they appear at the end.

    But it would be very nice if a "downloading" or a "to be downloaded" episode could appears in the playlist in grey, so we can already place it where we want in the playlist (when I manually download an episode it is because I want to listen it immediately of after an ending one).

    Besides, those "ghost" episodes order in the playlist can…

    You can enable Settings/Download/Play downloading episodes to do this. So if you set the app to automatically add downloaded episodes to the playlist you will see the episode in the playlist as soon as the download starts. Feel free to contact me if I misunderstood what you were asking (Settings/Feedback)
    Thanks

  9. Make it possible to remove the recent episode from every screen

    Good god, man. How do I remove the super-annoying, attention stealing, animated, scrolling most recent episode that I am completely done with, from the bottom of every screen in the whole app?!

    Sorry but this is not possible for now. There’s a standard in the RSS feeds that allows podcasters to set a flag for trailers. There’s, unfortunately, nothing for rerun. So, first a standard needs to be created then it needs to be adopted.
    But most podcasters won’t want to adopt this because they want listeners to listen to the reruns, not to skip them ;)

  11. Have a short "rewind/ back" option

    Have a 10 sec back button to replay just a short segment. The fast back button or slider is too haphazard.

    You can use the skip automatic rewind for this. However I don’t understand what the problem is with the rewind button. It just skips -15s. Please send me an email with more details so I can understand what the issue is (Setting/Feedback)

  12. Delete episode but leave unplayed or unread

    I have autodownload (on wifi) enabled, but often I want to delete a download, but leave the episode unplayed to go back to later. Right now, when I delete the episode, it then marks it as played, which is what I would want the default to be on the playlist. An option in the long press to leave unread at the same time would be useful. This would be when I am on the individual podcast's episode list page

  13. Keep episode image when podcast has been watched

    Maybe I missed a flag, but...

    Whenever a podcast episode is finished/watched, the podcast image gets replaced by the generic podcast image, with the "check". Would like to keep the individual episode's image, but with the "check".

  14. Allow "refresh metadata" for virtual podcasts

    When you have a podcast (in this case a virtual podcast), add option to refresh the metadata. This is not just "looking for new episodes", but "update title", etc. When I click "refresh", it simply looks for new episodes, but does not display any changed/corrected "titles".

    NOTE: Would like to KEEP the watched status.

    You can select multiple episodes (or all of them) and use the Refresh from RSS feed option for this. The app will refresh the information based on the current file metadata. Feel free to send me an email if you have any questions (Settings/Feedback)

  15. Continuous playback - avoiding playing episodes of one podcast one after another

    I love the Continuous playback function. I use it with priorities - if a new eposide of podcast that I like appears, it goes higher on a virtual list.

    But sometimes, if I start listening after longer break and I have many episodes to listen, it makes me listen all episodes of podcast with higer priority before episodes of other podcasts. I don't like to listen many episodes of one podcast one after another.

    I'll give you an example:

    podcast A - priority 40 - 2 episodes to listen
    podcast B - priority 30 - 2 episodes to listen

  16. Episode order should follow download order

    Some podcasts must be listened to in publication order (E.g. "History of the English Language). Most others, you can hear the latest first. While PA has a feature to download in either order, the sort order for episodes is always the same across podcasts.

    This is exacerbated on Android Auto when, using the default sort order, I'm scrolling scrolling scrolling in the freeway trying to get to episode 15 of 150 in the History podcast. (but I don't want to switch the default sort order, which is great for most of my other podcasts).

    Simply having display order and download…

    Playback order is controlled in the playlist screen. You can either order episodes manually or select the order of your choice. This will apply when you listen with your phone or through Android Auto. Feel free to send me an email if you have a question (Settings/Feedback)

  17. Auto-play in android auto

    Android auto has a setting that allows the application to auto-start playing music/sound, at the moment PA actively ignores it.

    It would be ideal if it followed the setting and auto-started playing if it's configured to do so.

    Thanks!

  18. Changed the Sort option "reverse" to only reverse the podcast you are in, not all podcasts.

    As title states. When you reverse the Sort of a podcast by publish date etc it reverses every podcast.

  19. sort two levels

    sometimes I want to enjoy podcasts in order for autoplay and would like to sort by 2 levels such as

    'by podcast; date'

    for the playlist so that i am not intercollating episodes of totally different podcasts in my downloaded episodes

  20. Manage podcasts that are loaded directly from a PC.

    I have many podcasts that I have downloaded to my PC. They are not listed on iTunes, RSS, etc. I can download them to my phone and they end up in the Downloads file. I can use Podcast Addict to play them individually. But it would be nice to be able to use PA to organize them into a playlist. Thanks.

    You can create virtual podcast in the app to handle the content of a folder as a podcast. Then you can play all those files in the playlist of your choice. Feel free to send me an email if you have a question (Settings/Feedback)
