The next couple of versions will focus in getting reed of any existing issue, then I will resume working on this feature.
I may have found a solution to handle the charge necessary and which might not cost too much.

Once a first beta with basic subscription syncing is available I will study the impact on the servers (and the cost), then I will add more syncing step by step, in order to sync the read status, favorite flag, playback progress, …
Hopefully I’ll be able to add this feature in the free version

    Yeah, please give us an update on this! The most popular feature request is about a desktop application with synchronization (https://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/forums/211997-general/suggestions/6531942-having-a-computer-based-version-of-podcast-addict) and there are some services (like gpodder: https://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/forums/211997-general/suggestions/4351924-add-support-for-https-gpodder-net) that can deliver this feature. So I think there can be some sort of discussion about the best way to achieve synchronization.

    Wow! The started comment is almost 4 years old. Can we get a status on this "Started" suggestion? I have 3 devices that I listen and watch podcasts on. I left PA for Pocketcast because PA didn't have this feature. I always liked the GUI on PA better than Pocketcast. Now with the release of the, even more, dorked-up Pocketcast v7, I'm back, but still would like the ability to sync across devices.

    Jumping ship from Pocket Casts due to the V7 issues but I need sync. Plenty of people here asking for it. I will totally pay for this, take my money!

    Would pay subscription for this functionality. Abandoned the app solely as a result of its absence.

    I would really like this feature to maintain my place in my playlist across both my phone and my in-dash Android head unit.

    Any update on adding this feature ? I don't want to switch to PocketCasts :( I love this app!!!!

  • Tomas commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Just commenting, I've switched to Pocket Casts due to this. But I'm not totally happy, if you implement it, I'm coming back and donating.

    Xavier ...please please please can you give your devotees a response some time soon to let us know if and when this feature is likely to be become a reality?
    Awesome app but lacking this one very critical feature

  • Alex B commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    PLEASE add this; please! The copying of backup files is a PIA to do it manually and frankly is not worth the time by the time one has to find a file manager that will do it on each device; then add a podcast to one device and here we go again...

    Hey, is this happening? I love this app but am looking to change just for the feature alone

  • Murrayzz1 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    How's this coming along, Xavier, 3 years after it was started? I'm assuming there would have to be a paid subscription for this, but I for one would be happy to pay it.

    Aaaand another one repeating the same words.

    What the hell? It is the most wanted feature for the best podcasting app available.

    It shouldn't be a problem to sync via file on dropbox/google/nextcloud/iCloud or anything similar?! I mean simple games are doing this. There are shopping list apps that do this stuff...

    Don't loose any more users and implement this. Please.

    Quel dommage... Impossible de synchroniser ma tablette et mon nouveau smartphone malgré vos conseils et plusieurs tentatives : fichier partagé par mail.. Puis par cloud... Rien nothing!.. What else?

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Pleaaaaaaaase. I'm trying Podcast Republic because it has this feature, but besides this it's such a pain in the ass. Having cross devices sync would be SO GREAT. If there is a cost, maybe give it only for the paid users? I've already paid, but I know I would have been glad to continue to use PA with sync rather than another software.
