Strongly consider syncing across devices. I use several different devices and most other apps already provide this feature. Im very disappoi
Complete the syncing across devices feature. Very disappointed to see how long ago this was requested with no apparent interest in providing this function.

I left spotify because I couldn't use the RSS from my patreon subscriptions. However to not be able to sync across devices makes me feel as if I need to continue my search for different players. I'm not always listening on the same device and don't want to have to keep a log of what episode and what time i'm at in each episode.
This feature is sorely needed as I switch from Android phone to tablet.

I'm also missing the sync feature. The Podcast Addict is really the best podcast app out there, but it's missing this single feature. Please put it on super high priority, it would really make this app twice as awesome!
I would sugest an intent to backup and another to restore, that would allow us to use any automation app to sync between devices. For now it would do the trick.
Syncing across devices is the only glaringly missing feature from the app.
I usually discover episodes I want to listen on my PC. Searching for them in the app is SUCH A PAIN IN THE ASS, especially if I've found a lot of episodes I want to add to playlist.
Some sort of syncing feature is a must. People use multiple devices. Please add it.

I'm just pushing all my rss (text) feed in a IMAP mailbox (with tool like feed2imap or rss2imap)...
So I can read all my rss on a lot of device (and through webmail :D), and on all of them I can know wich article are read or not...
It can be lovely that podcastaddict use this kind of idea (and so you can store _everywhere_ your feeds).

Syncing is a must! I have three different devices that I listen and watch podcasts on. Also a web app would be great for my laptop and two desktop PCs.
seconding this! I love Podcast Addict and would love to have a cloud based approach
@PodInhaler - You can already sync across devices using Google Drive like that using backup/restore. Backup gives you the option to share so you can upload to GDrive, but you'd have to download manually to the other device to restore it.
However, a cloud-based service that auto-updated the database would be great, then you could run the app on multiple devices syncing to the same cloud database, and leave the local devices to download and store the necessary files. That would be great. Of course it would a chargeable subscription-based service, but that's OK with me.
It would also be good if there was a web app, so that when you're at your desk you can run it on your laptop/PC.
storing/restoring on Google Drive would do for now.
Either automatically (on WiFi) or per easy-to-reach button.
Is it possible to make an account that you can sign in to different phones and get all subscriptions, playlist, and more?
That's the only thing I miss with this app.
I agree that this is the one feature that I very much miss having! I don't know how long this has been requested as implied by the anonymous requester, but that would totally make my day and move this very good app to the simply outstanding category. I constantly switch btw. multiple devices...
Keep up the great work, and in particular the Android Automotive integration!
