    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

        Hello, wondering if this syncing ability will be live anytime soon or if I need to find a different app.

        Love PA but this feature is becoming more and more important to me... Please advise.

        Thank you.

        I am no developer but why build a dedicated new sync platform for podcast addict when two mighty platforms already exist: Feedly and Inoreader. Both have APIs. Both stream audio and video content. Using Feedly or Inoreader web platform for cross-device sync, feed/podcast organization, read status, favorite tagging should be possible. Syncing playback progress could be a problem but 80% users would be happy.

        Feature has been asked for already: Search Uservoice for 'Feedly' or 'Inoreader'.

        I'm really interested in this feature as well. Xavier, do you have any updates about it?

      • MarleneMarlene commented  · 

        Oh wow! I am so excited that you are willing to get this syncing going for your loyal customers. Totally willing to pay extra as have PA on 3 or 4 devices and would simplify my life immensely if the sync feature was available!!!!! Any update as to how soon we can expect it?

        Yo can we sync or not? People who paid would like to know.

        Are there any updates on this question as of 1/19/17

        I find myself REALLY wanting this feature.

        Have tried to build some workarounds but failed.

        Really need to figure out how to do this - would be great.

        Maybe it is possible to use the Google account for Android users. If data are stored in Drive, there is no server cost for you for this feature.

        I really hope you get this feature to work. It would make your app even better !

        So, the top suggestion has been in development for over 2 years? I prefer podcast addict but I've installed others that have sync, I guess I'll switch. You mentioned finding something cheap, please explain why you don't just use the customer's cloud storage, let me choose the cloud folder for the sync. I would even pay for a subscription to have it sync to accross Android & iOS, this could be another source of revenue for you.

        Necessary feature. Until added and stable, cannot use app in my daily life.

        I really would like to come back, but I have three devices and therefore I need the sync. That's why I'm on PocketCast at the moment.

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        can I install PA on my ps vita?

      • hoipolloimikehoipolloimike commented  · 

        I love podcast addict, but I have had to switch to PocketCasts for syncing and a web interface. I miss PodcastAddict, though. Please let us in the fanbase know if there is anything we can do to help with this.

        I was thinking this could be achieved using Google Drive synchronization or Dropbox which are the two most popular ones. I know Dropbox dropped third party sync support, but that would not touch servers per se, right?

      • PetePete commented  · 

        Curious why this feature is not just adding support for one of the following options:
        1.) Expose the file to a public location on Android so that the user can sync the file manually using tools like Tasker to automate the process.
        2.) Incorporate file sharing options like Dropbox, Box, SugarSync, etc. to be centric of the syncing.
