  1. Ongoing Notification Panel Functions (move "X" button location & add rewind)

    I have some notification panel suggestions:

    1- move the location of the "X" all the way to the left (being so close to play/FF on the right causes accidental closing sometimes)

    2- OR make the notification panel expandable where the "X" is hidden until you expand it (example

    3- also, adding rewind to notification panel would be great. If you go with creating an expanded notification panel, maybe tuck it under there? Or make it customizable for what buttons show when expanded and what buttons show when expanded (between play/pause, fast forward, rewind, close)?

    As always, thank you for the…

    • Reset podcast without resetting watched status

      Recently I had to reset my podcast feed so that previous episodes titles and descriptions were updated and I wished it wouldn't have reset my watched episodes. I still have the backup if anyone knows a way to refresh the older episodes without resetting the whole podcast.

      • Categories: useful and not heavy improvements

        I think it would be useful to add a menu option: "Assign a category" to the menu items that pops up when pressing the 3 dots on the subscribed podcast. This should be a faster and more intuitive way to go to: "Override Categories". When pressing the suggested new menu item "Assign a category" the actual podcast category should be displayed and the user should be able to enter a new category or an existing category. Also useful in the podcast list to have a button "Manage Categories" on the toolbar of the Podcast list.
        In my opinion is a…

              The message is only displayed when the device tells the app that it’s in the ‘Optimized apps’ list.
              Either the app is still on that list or the device ROM has a bug because it keeps telling the app Feel free to send me a screenshot of the Non optimized apps list so I can check if this is the correct screen.

              Thanks

            • Paused download notification isn't great

              The paused download notification is annoying. 1) it's animated, 2) it reappears after you dismiss it, 3) I don't really need to see any notification for paused notifications, but I can see where iteration might

              Great app otherwise, thanks

                • Add episodes from an external harddrive into an existing podcast feed.

                  Because of space restrictions on my phone, I often will copy and paste the podcast addict episodes I've downloaded for various podcasts and put them on an external harddrive. This frees up space on my phone to download new episodes.

                  Eventually, I do the same thing again to free up more space as episodes accumulate. But sometimes, I want to be able to put episodes back from the harddrive onto the phone into the podcast they belong to.

                  I could just redownload them, but sometimes the podcast is no longer hosted at the same location and redownloading those episodes is…

                    Sorry but this isn’t possible.
                    The only way to do this would be to limit the number of downlaoded episodes you keep per podcast on your device. Once an episode has been removed from the app folder, the app will consider it as non downloaded

                  • Improve handling of download podcasts

                    When I update my podcasts daily, I scan for top items and download those manually, partially to create a prioritized playlist, but mainly to avoid using cell data.

                    This caused a problem when my playlist looks like this:

                    episode #1 (downloaded)
                    episode #2 (not downloaded, won't stream when no wifi)
                    episode #3 (downloaded)

                    Ideally, I want to press play, and if #2 is skipped, #3 starts playing. Instead, I have to manually manage this.

                    Likewise, since I'm manually managing, that means I usually stop a downloaded podcast with a bit left to go and picking the next one. That means…

                      You can enable Settings/Playlist/Skip on error in order to do this.
                      If you’re done listening to an episode you can long press on the next episode button so the app can first delete the current one and then switch to the next episode

                    • Merge option for podcasts with updated RSS feeds

                      I have several "duplicate" podcast shows because the producer switched from soundcloud to Libsyn to host their show. But the creators neglected to include their back-catalogues when they changed hosting services, so I keep the old feed around to hear back episodes.

                      The result is that I have duplicate entries for some of my favorite podcasts, with only one of the two successfully updating.

                      I'd like to merge the old episodes into the new feed, if that would be possible. I'd buy the app all over again to do clean up my library!

                        You can try unsubscribing from the NEW feed, then long press on the OLD feed and select Custom settings. From there you can edit the feed url and enter the NEW rss feed url.
                        This might create some duplicated entries if they changed some episodes unique ids but then you will have every episodes of the podcast under a unique podcast entry

                      • Automated Chronological playlist

                        Hi it would be great to have a playlist with episodes sorted in chronological order from oldest to newest automatically after each refresh.
                        I would like the playlist to reflect the actual list of episodes available each time the podcast is refreshed.
                        For example, on Tuesday I am listening to the 10pm episode from Monday but on Wednesday the 10pm & 11pm episodes from Tuesday are downloaded, I would like the playlist to be automatically updated so that the Wednesday episodes are played after I finish the current one (in the chronological order i.e 10pm then 11pm).
                        I hope you…

                          You can sort your podcasts any way you want to which already includes old to new.
                          Then you can press on play and the app will play episodes following that order.

                            You can already trigger the updates from the extra commands (press on the 3 dots menu on the right side of the player controls)
                            Then depending on your settings the app will download new published episodes

                          • To be able play downloaded podcasts in order continuously from the list.

                            If I'm connected to wifi, at the end of a downloaded episode it jumps back in the list to a random older, already played, non downloaded episode and starts streaming it. If not connected to wifi it just stops at the end of each episode and I have to manually move it and start the new episode.

                              The app relies on your playlist content for the playback. By default played episodes are automatically dequeue. Please check the playlist settings to restore this setting.

                              If you’re using the continuous mode instead then make sure to exclude ‘played content’ and to disable ‘allow streaming’ if you only want unplayed downloaded episodes in that list.

                                  Player FM has this ability. I was all set to switch to buy Podcast Addict until I found out about the lack of controls in Android Auto.

                                      Marking episodes as played has no impact on the downlaoded status on an episode.
                                      Delete the episode and it will be marked as played as well.
                                      feel free to send me an email if you have any question
                                      Thanks

                                    • Add a button to access playlist from the player screen

                                      The bookmark button is something I never use intentionally. I do, however, touch it accidentally when I'm looking to get to the playlist.

                                      Having no link between player and playlist is frustrating!

                                      • Audio volume should soften, not pause when interrupted

                                        A setting that lets you choose whether you want the audio volume to soften, or pause when interrupted

                                        • Scroll the track title in Android Auto

                                          I cannot see the track title in full in Android Auto - is it possible to scroll this across continuously?
                                          Thanks, Dave
