Improve the themes/UI
Please consider cleaning up the UI. Or at least give the option to hide UI elements. Your app might just be the very best regarding functionality but it doesn't look all that great in my opinion. It is very busy to look at.
For example the refresh button could be replaced with pull-to-refresh as an option.
Let me remove it the indicator for video or audio episodes. I don't do video podcasts (Does anyone??). The same is true for the playlist. Let's please hide the video feed.
I don't need the date of the last released episode on the main feed page. I have feeds that are dead since 2 years. This info is not important. Let me hide that too.
The themes are too busy with the two colors per feed. The black amoled theme is the best looking because it is just one color, black. I'd like dark, grey and bright versions of that.
All icons seem a tad too big. I'm nitpicking now but it looks a bit off.
(Some of the stuff I said is only true for the "list view")
This is meant as honest feedback and I hope you take it as such. I know it's a lot and pretty harsh but I didn't want to make 10 posts or beat around the bush.
Thanks for your work, it's a great app.

The only thing letting down this app is the interface.
Keep up the good work!
I agree as well. While the application is great especially for password protected podcast, it is really no enjoyable interface wise and looks dated. Application like pocketcast are much better in that but they are really weak when comes to podcast settings.
I agree, adding a lighter colored theme (material design) would be great
I totally agree. The most amazing podcast app available, but the main screen is so busy that it detracts from its greatness. Making items optional, or hiding them all together (refresh, hide listened, add, categories) would improve the look greatly.
I agree with most of the ideas. Less busy interface would be so much more attractive and easy to look at.
An option to remove the bookmarks and star button also would be great. I don't use that feature and would like to hide it from the players main screen.
A choice of less busy and smaller list view of podcasts would also be great.
Also I'm not sure how useful is having the word "Player" on the player screen. It's pretty obvious.
Thank you for your hard work.
