  1. Highlight the podcast currently played

    Hi it would be nice to display the podcast currently played in a different colour .
    I know it can be spotted with the pause symbol but it is not obvious at all.
    Thanks a lot

    • 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…

        Delivered in v3.43.3

        ========

        Next version will have a new setting allowing you to choose between Podcast Addict custom layout and the device default layout for the player notification. If you disable the Custom layout then you the player notification should use the proper background color.
        A 1st beta should be available later this weekend

      • Category Playlist

        It would be amazing if we could set up a playlist of categories. So, for example, if I had 4 categories of podcasts, news, sports, tech, and entertainment, it would play the first podcast episode from each category, then rotate back up to the top of the list. This way, you never get two of the same show, or even two of the same type of show, in a row, with zero playlist management.

          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

          =========

          The new beta allows you to play podcasts by category. The UI is still a work in progress but the feature works.
          On the app main screen you can filter by the category of your choice and then press on the…

        • Previous in Shuffle mode goes to the last listened podcast

          Current behavior:
          When shuffled mode is turned on, previous goes to a random podcast.

          Example of current behavior:
          Hit shuffle, plays ep X
          Hit next by accident, plays ep Y
          Hit previous, plays podcast Z

          Expected behavior:
          Previous button should play the last listen item. This is useful because I might accidentally hit next but then I have no way of going back. Spotify uses this behavior for Previous.

          Example of Spotify behavior:
          Hit shuffle, plays ep X
          Hit next by accident, plays ep Y
          Hit previous, plays podcast X

            This has been delivered in the latest version of the app

            ==========

            Next version of the app will allow you to return to the previous episode if you press next ONCE. If the current episode finishes, and the app skips to a random new episode, then pressing previous will skip to a random episode as well

          • 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…

            • When adding local audiobooks, treat each subfolder as a different book (podcast)

              Allow adding a top level folder and treat each subfolder as a different AudioBook. Perhaps treat spillover files not in a subfolder as a 'misc' podcast

                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.

                • 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]

                      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

                          • Need option flag to switch duration display when using variable speed playback.

                            A new feature (https://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/forums/211997-general/status/1016798) is that the playback display is recalculated based on the playback speed.

                            This is great to determine the actual amount of playing time at that higher rate of speed, but makes it difficult to fast forward to a specific time. ("Hey, listen to This American Life Episode 65 at 12:35")

                            Could there be an option to switch this display from accelerated duration to 1.0X duration and back?

                              • Display chapters when playing via car bluetooth

                                A few podcasts I subscribe to and download have chapters within them, but when playing podcasts in my car via Bluetooth the individual chapter details don't appear on the car player like they do within the built in player.

                                Could it be possible to enable this somehow as it's most useful seeing the track details and being to skip within the file whilst driving? 

                                Example podcast episodes that include chapters:

                                - http://media.rawvoice.com/ericprydz/media2-ep.podtree.com/media/podcast/Eric_Prydz_-_Epic_Radio_20012017_019.m4a

                                Podcast Addict handles and displays these absolutely wonderfully within its internal player and I'm able to navigate throughout the episode using the next track buttons, however…

                                • Add option to ignore audio notification

                                  It appears that in the newest version (338 build 1110) that the way the Pause Upon Audio Notification Setting works has been changed. Previously, I used to be able to completely ignore audio notifications and play the podcast at full volume. Now, it appears that my only two options are to pause and resume or to lower the volume temporarily. Is it possible to add a new option to completely ignore and play at normal volume option?

                                    • Improve import of audio books via virtual podcasts

                                      When adding a large number of audio books it would be useful to be able to specify the top level directory and have the program treat each subflolder as a separate book. A checkbox could be added to the options to enable it.

                                        • (Android) Add continuous playback for downloaded podcasts

                                          This should be without the need to add to a playlist.
                                          This is my suggestion:
                                          Users preset how 'Continuous' works, on all downloaded podcasts:
                                          It would be options like this:
                                          Play all podcast episodes old to new (or new to old, or date order, or alphabetically ordowmload date, irwhatever....)
                                          Or same options for all podcasts already downloaded,
                                          Or yet to be downloaded.

                                          I want to download a ton of podcast episodes from different podcasts. Then I want to be able to play a podcast episode. At the end of the episode, the next episode starts playing, according to whatever 'Continuous…

                                            Delivered in Podcast Addict v3.35.1

                                            ==========

                                            The Continuous playback mode will be improved in the upcoming v3.35 version.
                                            It will allow you to start playing any list of episodes displayed on the screen by pressing on an episode play button no matter which screen you’re in or which filter is applied.

                                            You can test this in the latest beta available.
                                            Please let me know how it works for you.

                                            Thanks
