  1. Add file size to download warning

    I love the "force download" warning when you're trying to download an episode with data downloads turned off. However, it would be cool if the file size was included in the warning, for concerned data users like myself.

      That’s a good idea. If the information is available then tit will be displayed in the next version of the app. Sometimes the information requires a connection to the podcast server to know about the file size and sometimes the server if not properly set up might not return it
      Next beta will have this implemented

    • Allow jumping to position of playback by specifying exact time

      For longer episodes it is really hard to jump to the correct position by using the slider when you e.g. want to go back by 5 minutes or 30 seconds. It would be much better to have a possibility to enter the exact time where the playback should jump to.

      • Sort podcasts alphabetically ignoring articles (a, an, the)

        Good morning,

        When I think of my podcasts I think of them without the preceding article.

        EG when I'm looking for The Comedy Button, I'm looking at the top of the list (C), not the bottom (T).

        Can the sorting algorithm be updated to ignore common English articles so that all my podcasts that start with A, The, etc, aren't misplaced?

        Thank you!

        • Support Jump Forward/Back on Android Auto

          Hello,

          I see that you have had a number of requests for android auto jump forward/back functionality that were closed saying that the functionality was supported, or that it was not possible to implement.

          I'm looking to move to this application from BeyondPod, which does support in android auto mode both episode skip/restart, as well as jump forward/back, and I believe that supporting both is not only quite possible, but valuable functionality.

          Currently, you have the "..." menu in android auto that brings up the secondary menu, and has limited functionality. BeyondPod places the jump forward/back buttons on this secondary…

            • sort the

              When displaying all podcasts can there be an option to sort without having podcasts starting with "The" be considered a T? Ex. "The Dead Author's Podcast" would be listed as a D ("Dead Author's Podcast")

                  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

                • One touch variable speed on/off

                  I'd like to be able to turn variable speed on and off with one touch. The high-speed selection would be whatever high speed was last used. This would be really handy for getting through commercials quickly, especially in the car.

                    • 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

                        I will add a new setting in Settings/Player/Timer called ‘Allways ON’
                        When enabled it will automatically start the sleep timer using the lastest timer settings when you start playing an episode

                        Edit: there will be no time range for now

                          The next couple of versions will focus in getting reed of any existing issue, then I will resume working on this feature.
                          I may have found a solution to handle the charge necessary and which might not cost too much.

                          Once a first beta with basic subscription syncing is available I will study the impact on the servers (and the cost), then I will add more syncing step by step, in order to sync the read status, favorite flag, playback progress, …
                          Hopefully I’ll be able to add this feature in the free version

                            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
