  1. Introduce folders so that you can group podcasts

    Really simple idea; just enable drag and drop folders like those for apps but for podcasts on the home screen.

  3. Sort by played time

    Is it possible to add a sorting option by played time (total time - remaining time). So I can sort first the episodes already started. Thanks!

  4. I'd like a downloadable/exportable history of all podcasts listened to/downloaded

    My phone is running out of storage space so I need to delete all my downloaded podcasts. However- I want a way to remind myself which podcasts I downloaded in the past (and not just ones that count as fully listed too; sometimes I only listen to 3/4 of one but they still count!).

    It would be great if you could download a txt/html file that was exportable to your email or something so you had a digital record of what you listened to in the past.

  7. Global variable speed option

    I would absolutely love it if there was an option to have the variable speed currently set in the player have effect globally, rather than just on a per podcast basis. In this case, the current and subsequent episodes would all be played at whatever the current player speed setting was, ignoring whatever speed each podcast was last played at

    I find that I have to change the speed based on the environment I am listening in. For example, when using earphones I can usually get up to around 2.5x and still understand everthing, however when using the phone or…

    FYI there’s a setting in Settings/Player called Playback “speed factor” which allows to select how much of the current playback speed is applied when you listen through a loud speaker. For example, I set this at 33%.
    This means that the podcast set to 2.5x is played at 2.5x only when listening with a headset (wired or BT). Otherwise the app will play at 1.5×. Once you enable this, you won’t have to change the playback speed based on the environment. The app will do it for you

  8. Voice notes

    Sometimes when I hear something interesting in podcast I'm writing it down to check it later. It is not possible while running or other activities. You might add something like recorder enabled through headphones remote controll which will stop playing podcast and enable recording to leave short note. After that places where user left note might be also marked on podcast timeline.

    allow "shake to reset timer after player has stopped". for those of us who like to use podcasts to fall asleep and if wake up in night, we want to be able to restart the audio for approx 20 minutes without opening eyes. Replaying portions of same episode is ok since we aren't really listening, were zoning out sleeping.

  10. Settings presets instead of overriding settings for each podcast individually

    I have two main types of podcasts I am listening too.

    1. Story based podcasts This type of Podcast tells a story over multiple episodes. The content often isn't related to the current events but can be listened years after publication. The episodes build on one another. An example would be 'Serial'. The listening order should be the order of publication. For this kind I override the settings like this:

    Automatic download: yes
    Archive mode: yes
    Download older first: yes
    Automatic playlist: yes
    Delete: no

    I sort the podcast by date, old->new

    1. News based podcasts This podcasts often are related more…

  14. add a volume function within the app that controls the volume that the podcast plays independent of the volume of the rest of the device.

    I like to listen to music while learning a new language using another application called duolingo. The language learning app has a teacher that speaks random sentences so it would be nice to turn down the volume of the podcast while maintaining the volume of my other app

  15. Enable the always on player banner on the playlist screen

    The player banner is a great addition to podcast addict and allows quick access to the current/last played episode yet it is missing from the bottom of the playlist screen.
    Enabling the player banner on the playlist screen would improve the user experiene by keeping the interface consistent.

  16. Add in the playlist quickbutton

    Hello,

    In one of the last updates, there's a new quickbutton to play and download episodes.
    Since I'm actively using the playlist, could you add an option to replace the "Play" button by "Add in the playlist" instead?

    Thank you :)

  17. Create a reset to default settings option without having to reinstall

    I apologize if this has been stated before but I have look all throughout the app and cannot for the life of me see an option to reset everything to default. I would be very convenience to have since some like to change things around but may not remember the changes later on if there is a change in heart for the person.

  19. Silence Skipping – Adjustable Silence Duration

    tl;dr:
    I think it would be wonderful to have an adjustable min…max time consideration setting for silence skipping.

    Detail:
    Although very useful, most podcasts sound odd and rushed with the current silence skipping setting. I think having an adjustable meter that allows a user to define the minimum amount of acceptable silence before skipping occurs would be wonderful.

    It would allow for podcasts with this setting to sound more natural while also removing those unnecessary silences that often occur between commercials, chapters, etc.

    It may also satisfy these posts:
