    Just a heads up regarding the latest version of the app. It doesn’t provide cross device syncing yet, but it allows you to sign in to your Google Drive account and have all your data automatically backed up to make sure they are safe at all time. It also makes restoring the data on a new device really easy.
    You can go into Settings/Backup to enable this and sign-in
    Thanks

  2. Add a Rating & Review System for Podcast Shows

    Add a way for users to rate/review their favorite podcast shows instead of having to use a competitor app.

    Please join the Beta on the Google Play Store app page to test the new Rating & review feature.

    Once you get the new version you can long-press on a podcast to review it or go to its description page to see other reviews and post one.
    Of course, in the beginning, there won’t be any review but it’s up to you to support the podcasts you listen to!

    Please send me an email with your feedback so I can keep improving this

    Thanks

    The next version will allow to reorder downloads and to pause/resume them.
    A first beta will be soon available

    Concurrent downloads will be added in a future release

    Since v3.27 the download manager as been improved and now displays an ‘error’ tab that will allow you to see a list of the past download failures, allowing you to retry the downloads without having to remember the episodes that failed to download in the first place

  4. Review/rate option

    ... add a review/rate option. It is necessary to show support and help iniciatives grow. Your app is really good. Make it the best

  5. Add sleep timer to Chromecast mode

    It would be really nice if I could use the sleep timer when I'm casting to my Chromecast.

    This feature will be available in the next version.
    A first beta should be available later today on the Play Store. Feel free to test it and send me some feedback via email (Settings/Feedback)

    However, this feature will only work properly if Podcast Addict keeps running. If you kill the app, the Chromecast will keep casting its content, but the timer will not be running anymore

    Thanks

  6. Create a method for listeners to review podcasts.

  8. MANUAL Podcast Sort - Not using "Priority"

    I know that one can click Custom Settings, Podcast Priority, and set a number, but this is WAY too cumbersome and not efficient, especially when you want to add newly discovered podcasts and fit them in somewhere. It would be infinitely easier and preferable to simply be able to DRAG and DROP each podcast in the order you wish (if you are using Manual sort). You wouldn't lose the ability to sort by date or alpha etc. but if you select manual sort, you can drag and drop. Please add this it would be so awesome!

    This will be added in the next Beta.
    You will need to select the Sorting mode ‘custom’ on the main screen and then you can select “Reorder” in the option menu to customize the podcasts order by drag and drop
    Please join the Beta from the Play Store app page to get this new version as soon as Google validates it.
    Please let me know how this works for you

  10. 'Always On' Sleep setting per podcast

    There are some podcasts I listen to only while sleeping. It would be useful to be able to enable a setting that would automatically trigger Sleep mode if you manually start playing an episode from that podcast. (I say manual to avoid perhaps issues with playlists)

    The next version of the app allows you to enable the sleep timer automatically based on a time frame.
    That might be a workaround for what you’re asking for.
    For example, the sleep timer will enable itself when listening between 10pm and 5am.
    Let me know if that works for you so I can close this feature request (or not)
    Thanks

  11. Search settings

    I love so much all the settings, but sometimes I struggle to find what I need and I loose a lot of time.
    If there is a search inside the app itself, it would help me so much

    This will be implemented in v2020.10
    This won’t be in the new version that just started rolling out.

    Please join the Beta from the app Play Store app page to test this feature. A new beta will be available by tomorrow to test this

  12. Automatic sleep timer

    Add an option to automatically start the sleep timer in a specified time range. For example the sleep timer always runs between 10pm and 6am. This would allow users to not have to start it every night

  13. Add a way to search settings

    I love that podcast addict has so many customization options, but because of this it can be difficult to find some settings. Adding a way to search the settings by keyword would be helpful

  14. Include a hashtag in Twitter sharing

    Next version will allow you to add customized hashtags and twitter handles when sharing podcasts (either manually or automatically).
    This will replace the default hashtag generated by the app based on the podcast name.
    This will soon be available in Beta

    BTW this is a podcast custom setting, not an app setting

    New beta now works differently. When you select a folder containing sub folders, the app asks you if you want to create a single podcast or as many podcasts as there are subfolders.
    If you select the later, adding a new subfolder in your device memory later will not automatically create a new virtual podcast in the app

  16. Add option to mark chapters as 'to skip'

    Some podcasts include chapters the listener is not interested in hearing. Therefore, an option to mark chapters as 'to skip' in one go would spare the user to skip each chapter individually when it comes up.

  17. Select Chapters to play

    Before playing an episode (or multiple episodes within a playlist), I'd like to be able to select which chapters within an episode to play (and which to skip). When wanting to skip selected chapters, I have to jump to the next chapter mark during playback in the moment, when a new chapter (I'd like to skip) begins. But in that moment I might have no hand free to do so. So I'd like a feature, that allows me to select the chapters to play (or the ones to skip) in beforehand. This could be implemented with checkboxes in the chapter…

  18. Sleep timer only going when playing

    It would be convenient to have the timer go only when playing. It would limit playtime for people that listen to too many podcasts.

  19. Favorite episodes from the playlist episode long press menu

    Often I want to mark an episode favorite after I listen and don't want to have to find it in that podcast's episode list.

    Often I'll then delete the episode afterwards, so it would also be great to have a bin icon for the delete menu item too.

  20. hashtag instead of brackets...

    I love the artwork tweet, have you also considered a # or a @ instead of [ blah blah blah ] when you autotweet which episode my phone just played?

    Then instead of just my followers, the podcast would be promoted properly, and the podcaster would know too. Thanks.
