      This will be added in the new version. You will have to go into Settings/Sliding menu and enable the playback history entry.

    • Add Repeat Mode

      Provide an option play podcasts in a “repeat” mode where the podcast just loops so that when it ends the same podcast starts over again.

          Edit: delivered in v3.9

          ==========

          Next version of the app will include a new playlist mode called ‘Automatic podcast playlist’ (at least for now).
          This mode will disable the current playlist and all the ‘add to playlist’ / ‘remove from playlist’ menus and buttons.
          When selected, this mode will work like this:

          Start playing an episode. The app will automatically build a playlist with all the unread episodes of the current podcast. If you press the play button on an episode from another podcast, the app will clear the current playlist and build a new one for the new podcast.

          Please join the beta group to test this new feature as soon as it’s available (http://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/253911-how-to-join-the-beta-program). Feel free to let me know what you think about it. Every feedback is welcome.

          Thanks

          Edit: a new beta has just been published with this new feature. It should soon be…

        • Communicate title via Bluetooth

          If an app provides title metadata via intent, then a car radio or any other display connected via bluetooth could display track title or even display a cover image (if both devices support this, this is since AVRCP 1.3)

          • allow multiple playlists

            I listen to different types of podcasts depending on what I am doing. I'd like to be able to separate them so I don't have to keep messing with the order of the list.

              Podcast Addict v3.42 has just been released.
              This new version finally adds support to multiple playlists.

              In order to use this new feature, you can go into the Playlists screen and select the new ‘Custom’ tab.
              Then you can select the category of your choice and listen to it.
              Those default categories are provided by the podcast owner in their RSS feeds, but you can press on the toolbar ‘Category’ button and add/delete/customize them.
              That way you can create playlists like News, Commute, Workout, Audiobooks, SFW, …
              Each playlist can have its own sorting mode.

              Please let me know what you think about this new feature

              Thanks

              =========

              New version will add multiple playlist support.
              In order to do so you will need to enable Continuous playback mode in the app Settings/Playlist screen

              Then the playlist screen will have a 3rd tab which displays the podcasts categories.
              You can…

            • Please consider adding a "Merge Categories" feature.

              For example, there are two existing categories named "News & Politics" and "News and Politics." Because each has many items, and re-categorizing them individually would be tedious, a way to merge them would be helpful.

              One option might be to simply rename one to the other, whereby the user would get a dialog saying something like, "Category Exists. Do you want to merge them?" Or the user could multi-select, via checkbox or long press, then select "Merge" from a menu.

              Thank-you.

                  • Use the native notification style

                    As you all probably know, in Android 5 the default notification style uses white background and black/grey text, as opposed to older versions that used a dark gray background.

                    Almost 3 years have passed since then... and the only app I have installed that still uses a dark notification is Podcast Addict. Even worse: it's not even the old style KK/JB notification style, it's black rather than dark grey, seems to be a completely custom color scheme.

                    So... is there a reason PA keeps using this custom color scheme? It's really ugly on most current devices...

                    Thanks for the awesome…

                      • Sonos support

                        The setting that allows us to configured where podcasts are stored does not work as expected, and as such is incompatible with Sonos. If I designate /Podcasts (what Sonos expects) it should really put them in there, not in /Podcasts/podcast. I've logged this as an issue on the Sonos website as well. One or both of you should be able to handle this - hopefully both because it's not great customer service to punt when it's in your power to do so.

                            Edit: delivered in v3.10

                            Edit: Please update to the latest BETA: v3.10 build 569 and let me know what you think of the new Priority setting screen.
                            You will also find this screen in Settings/Display/Podcasts

                            I will improve the way to set the podcast priority in the next version, but because it makes sense to have multiple podcasts using the same priority I’m not sure a drag and drop list might be doable.
                            I’ll let you know once the beta is available to get your feedback

                            • Auto Backup the subscriptions list (OPML) to Dropbox or Google Drive

                              I accidently format my phone and I lost all my subscriptions, because the (OPML) was on the phone also, so it would be grate to have auto backup feature integrated with google drive or dropbox to automate this task every month or every time I added new channel.

                                The future version will allow you to enable an automatic backup of the subscriptions (OPML file) every time the subscriptions are updated.
                                If you select a backup folder synced with Drive or Dropbox, you should get your files in the cloud automatically.

                                I often use podcasts for research into specific topics so being able to create custom lists and manually add podcasts to it would be great. The podcast search feature is great but to have additional manual control would be great too.

                                • Even-spaced playlist sort

                                  I'd like to suggest an even-spaced playlist sort so that episodes aren't played back to back and spread out as evenly as possible so if fo example I have a playlist of podcasts AABBCADB, I could then sort it to ABCABDAB, giving me two episodes between each A and B

                                  • implement an alternate feature in the playlist

                                    I hate when episodes of the same podcast play back to back. I want a check box which will keep that from happening, following the sort order, generally.

                                    • Add a playlist order that will alternate between all the podcasts regardless of how old they are

                                      This is hard to explain in a title. I want to listen to all my podcasts in chronological order. However, because podcast 1 started in 2011, and podcast 2 starts in 2013, I'm stuck listing to podcast 1 in bulk for a long time.

                                      What would be great to have is a sort feature that would play the oldest (or newest, if you prefer that) episode of podcast 1, then the oldest of episode of podcast 2 (then oldest of podcast 3 or 4,etc). Once it's cycled through all the podcasts, it would then start on the second oldest of…

                                      • intent pause download +manager

                                        Due to varying tariffs and bandwidth usage on my usual network connection, I'd like to use an intent from Tasker to automatically pause/ unpause the download manager at certain times of day or when other schedules or sitations happen (of course I can still manually pause/unpause it).

                                        Its a pain to change it so frequently in order to queue up downloads later that I don't need now. [I hunted hard to see if anyone else wrote this one, please comment with title/link to other if its a duplicate]

                                        • incremental rewinding

                                          I am using an audiobook app that rewinds the book incrementally upon resumption based on how long it was paused. So if the play was paused for a brief moment it rewinds a second or two if for a few seconds than it rewindes 5 seconds it does so up to 30 seconds.
