Support Jump Forward/Back on Android Auto


I see that you have had a number of requests for android auto jump forward/back functionality that were closed saying that the functionality was supported, or that it was not possible to implement.

I'm looking to move to this application from BeyondPod, which does support in android auto mode both episode skip/restart, as well as jump forward/back, and I believe that supporting both is not only quite possible, but valuable functionality.

Currently, you have the "..." menu in android auto that brings up the secondary menu, and has limited functionality. BeyondPod places the jump forward/back buttons on this secondary menu, and the episode skip/restart buttons on the primary menu.

Skipping tracks completely, as well as jumping forward/back are critical features for an audio playback application, and the current implemention is severely limted in allowing only one feature or the other to be active via the "Skip foward/rewind controls" flag.

Please take this functionality request under consideration,

    Hi Xavier,

    I am also a new paid convert to Podcast Addict from BeyondPod. I would like the same functionality as described by Jobi above. How to I join the beta program to test this feature? Thanks!

    I'm coming back from pocketcasts and they have a checkbox in the secondary menu to mark as played. This is typically perfect when in the car instead of having to mash skip ahead to skip something I'm not interested in.
