  1. Add "back 15 seconds" button in mini-menu

    Add "back 15 seconds" button in mini-menu when phone is blocked.
    I see a "forward 15 seconds" button (who uses this?), but no "back 15 button", which is a lot more important.
    All media players have this button...
    Thanks

      90% of the users who skip during playback use skip ahead ;)
      This is mostly used to skip ads, intros or uninterresting part.
      Skip backward is not used a lot.
      But you can customize the player notifications in Settings/Notifications/Player if you want to add this button

      • Don't open playlists with no content

        The only playlist I use is "Audio", yet every time I go to the playlists page, the focused one is "Custom", which is empty.

        There should be a priority in choosing which tab to focus on. Ideally the unused playlists wouldn't even be shown.

          The focus is on the last used playlist.
          This means that you rjust listened to an episode using the continuous playback feature instead of using the playlist. If you don’t want to use this feature please disbale Settings/Playlist/Continuous playback mode

        • Playlist Stop after this ep

          To have a option in the dropdown menu in the playlists to stop playing at the end of current episode. Be good when listening in bed at night. If you fall asleep it wont continue all night and empty out your playlist.

          • Color coding for episodes

            It's hard to differentiate downloaded vs listened and new episodes. They should have a slightly dfferent background to help differentiate between them.

              Played episodes are displayed with a green checkmoark. You can then press on the toolbar ’
              eye’ button to hide played content.
              Downloaded episodes are displayed with an icon that shows this status but you can use the navigation side entries to either access ‘recent episodes’ or ‘downloaded episodes’
              Also you can open any podcast screen and use the header filter to only show recent episodes or downloaded episodes

            • have ability to delete mostly finished episodes

              Sometimes I don't completely finish an episode or only 60% finished an episode and decided it wasn't good enough to finish and don't have time to go through and mark them finished. Maybe an option to delete episodes that are a certain percentage finished? Thanks! Love your app.

              • Stop on audio focus loss for phone only

                Add an option to handling audio focus loss to pause only for phone calls, and not for other apps (eg misbehaving games that request audio focus several times)

                • there should be a 10 seconds rewind button

                  Hello, awesome app! Thanks for this great app which I use on a daily basis. One function I really miss is a 10 seconds rewind button. When someone talked to me, I didn't understand something in a foreign language or there was just noise like traffic noise around me, a button that jumps 10 seconds back would come in handy!

                    • Settings to stop podcasts showing up in other music app

                      Right now some episodes I downloaded appears also in Play Music app. There should be some toggle setting to NOT ALLOW podcast to show up in other music apps.

                        The app doesn’t allow other apps to index the storage folder unless you enabled Share with other apps in Settings/Download.
                        If you see your podcasts in your music library it means that your device or the music player you’re using doesn’t respect Android ‘No index’ basic behavior.

                        • automatically choose Player depending on audio format

                          Especially when listening to radio streams, I occasionally stumble across formats that the internal player cannot play.
                          While I prefer to use the integral internal player, for those stations I have to change the setting to external player and later back to internal.

                          It would help if PA automatically opens an external player if it cannot play the format on its own.

                          Or if you could at least change the setting for internal/ external player per Podcast/Stream instead of globally

                          • Volume

                            I check my volume before I play a podcast and I have it below half or something so I don't destroy my ears. When I press play it plays at full volume every time, regardless of what my current volume setting is. I wonder if this is my phone or your app, if it's my phone I guess I'll chalk another failure up to the Razr M.

                              The app doesn’t handle the volume.
                              Are you sure you check the MEDIA volume channel vefore starting playback?
                              The device player will play using the current media channel volume.
                              If you presson the volume buttons before starting playback chances are you’re only changng the ringing channel volume.
                              Please send me an email with mode detail (Settings/Feedback)
                              Thanks

                              Hi,

                              i have had a problem with Podcast Addict on my Honor 8.
                              Every time i locked my Screen the App was shutting down and no Audio was playing.

                              So i searched a litte time and found out, that this issue came from using the Option "close after the screen locks" on Google Chrome!

                              I dont know why Podcast Addict uses Google Chrome to play Audio but after disabling "close after the screen locks" on Google Chrome Podcast Addict worked fine in locked mode.

                              Detailled Information on XDA:

                              • add podsync support

                                On default when you add a youtube Channel the Episodes of this Channel can be viewed but not downloaded.
                                Podsync is a free Service which transfers Youtube-Channels to Podcast-Feeds.
                                You can easily download Youtube Videos via this Podcast-Feed from Podsync.

                                It would be awesome if you could add a default option for adding Youtube-Channels with download option (via podsync)

                                More details about Podsync:

                                    The app requires the background service in order to work properly. If the app is still using 60MB of RAM it just means that your device hasn’t needed more resources for now, otherwise Android would have notify the app about resources being low and the app would have cleared its cache freeing all that RAM. Apps not complying are killed.
                                    Android is doing a relaly good job in handling the resources/RAM

                                  • Clearing custom playlist

                                    A custom playlist was made automatically and I don't want it. When I connect to my audio player in my car, it goes to the custom playlist and not my audio playlist. How can I clear that playlist ? or delete it.

                                      This means that you’re currently playing from the custom playlist. Please start playing from the Audio playlist to stop this behavior.
                                      The custom playlist cannot be cleared. You can just select another category to update its content, but unless you start playing from that screen it won’t be used

                                    • The app seems to have problems with mp3 locating

                                      Some episodes do not locate correctly near the end of the episode. They will play through if I let the episode run from the beginning, but if I stop then restart, playback will resume from an earlier point. I also can not locate to the correct point as the play point will always be interpreted as an earlier point in the episode. Downloading the episode does not help. However, other apps do not have the problem. Here's an example:

                                        This website is dedicated to new feature request. In case of an issue please send me an email.
                                        Playback is handled by the device built-in player, not by the app. This issue means that the device doesn’t fully support the file encoding. In that case every app relying on the device player will have the same issue.
                                        Please let me kno if you’re using any audio effect such as playback speed, volume boost or skip silence so I can check if there’s a workaround to try

                                        Thanks

                                          You have a play intent and a pause intent but it would be dead useful to have a single intent that will play then pause the playlist.
