  1. Disable the warning when Google Play is not installed

    I don't use Google Play on my device because it eats my RAM, sends my location to everywhere and blocks up space.

    Podcastaddict works fine without it, but it remembers me EVERY TIME I get on the homescreen that I don't have Google Play. Please give me an option to disable this, it is annoying! :(

      Google ads are now delivered through the google play services. You must install them because everything now go through them. This is the way google is making sure every device out there is updated. Sorry but the only option to disable this is to install the google play service (ram is no issue at all and it sends the location only to authorized applications) or to stop using the app. You can also buy the ad free version but I definitely don’t want this to be forced on user.
      Google play services are supposed to be install everywhere and google is forcing every developer to use them for ad, GPS, cloud access, google authentication… By august every app using admob will be required to switch to google play service

          No it doesn’t drain the battery. The mandatory background service doesn’t use any CPU/battery. Android can kill it any time it needs to free some resource for an app running in the foreground, then the service will restart automatically. It handles all the app automatic behavior, remote control…

        • radio text

          Missing the radio text and recording, while streaming Livestreams. Our local radio supports radio text, but the app doesn't displays it, only my stationary internet radioset.

            The app shows the current track name provided by live stream.
            If you don’t see it it means that this information is missing or they are not using the same standard as other radio. Feel free to provide more detail like the live stream url so I can do some tests.
            Thanks

          • Automatically retry failed downloads

            When a podcast download fails for an 'external' reason (e.g. server issue, limited disk space) the app will stop automatic download attempts, marking the download as failed to be launched manually when the issues are resolved later. Given the nature of automatic updates, downloads and playlist population I generally do not notice failed downloads for several weeks after the event.

            I suggest adding a check for failed downloads when another download starts successfully. A single download attempt could be launched if any failed downloads are identified.

            With this check in place, there will be the possibility of automatically downloading episodes…

              The app already retries failed download a few times in case the eror code returned is non fatal.
              In case of a fatal error, downlaods will not be retried automatically. You have to open the download manager ‘error’ tab and retry them manually in that case.
              As those ‘external issues’ might be fixed weeks or months later I’m not sure retrying the download automatically is such a good idea,
              Sorry but I prefer to decline this request

              Thanks for your understanding

            • 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.
                Please csend me an email in case you have any question (Settings/Feedback)

                    • Why can't I see deleted episodes?

                      Why can't I see deleted or completed episodes? I occasionally like to go back and relisten to things, but lately, every time I delete an episode or let it play all the way to the end, it gets completely removed to the point that I can't even find it anymore.

                              There are some podcasts I listen to while at home or driving that may not be appropriate for when I am in my office at work, and others I only listen to while sleeping. There are some I listen to with my daughter. Being able to make multiple playlists would allow those to be organized and avoid inadvertently skipping episodes I want to hear eventually.

                                    • in the android auto interface, provide both next/previous track AND skip forward/backward in the current track.

                                      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.

                                        • Playlist length

                                          Not a vital feature, but it would be cool to be able to see the length of my current playlist. For example, if I have ten episodes lined up, what's the total length of those podcasts.
                                          Like I said, nerdy feature, and nothing too important. Just an idea
