  1. Pre-Populate the Name String in "Override Podcast Name"

    I typically just want to eliminate leading "The" + "A" + "An" words in order to have a sane alphabetical sort. But I'm currently forced to re-enter the rest of the (sometimes •long•) title string.

    ALTERNATIVELY:

    Podcast Addict could (a la iTunes) ignore leading articles like these.

    Thank you!

  2. Ability to select specific podcasts from search to add to playlist

    When doing a search for a particular person you get a list of multiple different podcasts that included the interview with this person. There should be some way to select the podcast episodes you want and have them be added to the playlist.

  3. ignore remaing time if option "End after current episode" is enabled

    When I enable the option "End after current episode" and the remaining time is shorter then the episode length the playback stops before the episode ends. If this option is enabled the remaining time should be ignored.

    When you enable the Sleep timer and select ‘End after current episode’, playback will stop if the time is up OR if the end of the episode is reached.
    If you want the playback to stop at the end of the episode, make sure to increase the timer value

  4. Podcasts Radio-France

    Dans la listes des émissions, plus de la moitié des icones ne s'affiche pas. Un reload de la liste ou une relance de l'aplli en WiFi, en 3G ou H+ ne résout pas le problème, si bien qu'on ne sait pas à quelle radio correspond telle émission ou réciproquement. Cela suppose de connaître avec précision ce que l'on cherche.
    Je trouve que la liste est trop longue: un filtre ou un classement par radios serait plus pratique.

  6. Be able to mark read or unread based on date

    It would be great to only read or unread based on date release.

    Example: Makrk all episodes before 1/1/13 as read

    You can long press on an episode and select ‘Mark older episodes as read’.
    By default episodes are sorted by date, so it should do the trick.
    Please let me know if it’s OK or if I need to reopen this feature request.
    Thanks

  7. Separate sort-by options

    I want podcast view sorted by publication date but downloads by downloaded date
    This was allowed before, but not anymore

  8. 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

  9. Ajouter un filtre sur le téléchargement des épisodes

    Il y a des podcasts pour lesquels il y a des teasers, extrait ou bande-annonce. Du coup lors du téléchargement on récupère les extraits qui vont être en doublons avec l'épisode en entier.
    Du coup on se retrouve à marquer lu tous les épisodes de type (extrait, ba ou teaser) et cet manip manuelle est fatiguante ! :(

  10. please add a new option to hide podcast files from other music player apps.

    I'm annoyed by finding podcasts playing when I shuffle my music in my regular music app. It'd be great to have an option to hide these files from other players. This can be done by putting .nomedia files in each directory where the podcast files reside.

    The app doesn’t share anything by default.
    You need to make sure the other app doesn’t browse Podcats Addict download folder.
    Also make sure you didn’t enable Settings/Share with other app, but if your music app doesn’t handle this standard Android flag there’s nothing I can do

  11. Request for Notification area Player

    Thank you for the great player!

    Simply add an option to show remaining/elapsed time in notification player.

    Would it be possible to add to App Drawer Notification Area line following info:
    Episode Playback Progress %
    Bar line,
    h:mm Left to episode playback end

    Some audiobook players have it - like Listen Audiobook Player and Smart Audiobook Player - they also use taller notification line for more space, and it's 1st priority, so used to have this info in Notification list pulldown.

    I already have it in "Expandable Notification" - but info above is still not present.

    Feedback needed and Thank…

  18. Orderly download limited number of unread episodes per podcast

    Sorry if this has been posted, couldn't find exactly this idea.

    My use case is that I want to steadily listen to all my subscriptions, in publication order. Downloading and queuing on automatic refresh does this nicely.

    The problem is the necessary free space needed. If I fall somewhat behind for a few days, my storage gets filled up pretty quickly.

    I see two possible ways of going about this (and I can't add storage ;-).

    1) Globally download and store up to X GB of unread podcasts (and from all unread, in publication order)
    2) Download at most X…

    It looks like this can be managed by the new Archive mode.
    Set app Settings/Automatic cleanup/Keep at most for 5 episodes for example (globally or per podcast), then enable the archive mode (globally or per podcast). The app will download up to 5 episodes and keep this number until you finally managed to liste to all your episodes.
    Please let me know if this doesn’t answer your use case.

    Thanks

  19. 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.

  20. Add ID account

    please add ID account at your app to not miss anything when we format our phone and reinstall it. thanks.
