      • load podcast "cover images" into ram, or do what you can to stop images from continuously having to load while scrolling subscribed podcasts

        This app is darn near perfect, and comparing it to Google's podcast app is hilarious. Theirs is a joke compared to this one. This suggestion is a simple quality of life improvement which I think would make the app feel smoother and more polished. Thanks for the hard work!

          Images are cached when used by the app.
          Depending on your device specs the size of the cache can vary. The size of the bitmaps is also a parameter in order to know how many episodes can be stored in to the cache

        • Fix Website Links

          App will randomly open website links in the app rather than a browser. The first time I try to open a link it will open in the app then I have to exit the podcast notes and reopen to hit the link again to open in chrome. Fix this. Also, with your most recent update, when I open the links in the browser, they don't work rather they send you to the podcasts patreon page.

            It looks like Podcast Addict has been made the default app for thos urls. Please go into the device Settings/Applications/Podcast Addict screen and press on clear default action to fix this.

            Regarding the episodes shownotes links, this has been fixed in the latest Beta and will soon be released for eveyone

          • Add an option to auto play on launch if connected to Bluetooth

            I use tasker to launch PA when connected to my car's Bluetooth. It would be great if u could get it to start playing too. Maybe the option could be Auto Play with options such as Always, If Connected To Bluetooth, If Connected To Specific Bluetooth.

            • Allow switching storage folder even when old one disappeared

              I suggest allowing switching storage folder even when old one disappeared, basically by changing the logic of the set-storage-folder mechanism.

              I set the storage folder to /sdcard/... but then my SD card went away. Now I cannot switch it back; the option bombs too early with "folder not found", before it gets to the point of allowing a new one to be set.

                • Don't play YouTube ads for YT Premium customers

                  I have YouTube Premium (formerly YouTube Red), so YouTube doesn't show me ads, like the ones they play before the real video starts. I just discovered Podcast Addict's great YouTube play feature. I added my favorite playlists and channels, excited that I could watch and navigate my favorites the Podcast Addict way, instead of having to wade through YouTube's boneheaded suggestions of what to watch next. But when I watch via Podcast Addict, the ads play. Can you do anything about this? Thanks!

                    I’m sorry but the app just send the video url to the device default player which is usually the YouTube app.
                    I have no idea why it would plays ads on your device. Please check that the YouTube app is using the correct Google account if you have many installed on your device.
                    I don’t experience any issue on my devices. I don’t see any ads when playing with my YouTube premium account

                      I have every setting set to 'on wifi only' and this app has used almost a GB of data in the last month. Might just uninstall because that is my entire data limit.

                            • The restore option doesn't work. can't restore either full backup or OPML.

                              ok so you can't restore OPML cause the backup option filters out anything that's not ".backup", and you can't restore ".backup" cause it just doesnt' work.

                              scenario. old samsung phone -> new samsung phone. transfer apps using samsung smart transfer. restore from backup doesn't work. try it some time. it's hideous

                                    Right now you have to remember by heart which podcasts you enabled auto download on. If you forget you have to go through each and every podcast and open the custom settings for each one and check which can take hours to do. A quick summary table that shows which podcasts have auto update and download enabled would be very helpful.

                                    • Check volume boost function, please.

                                      When using the volume boost function, it consumes battery a lot and the heat of the cell phone becomes severe. Make sure that the volume boost function is working properly.
