    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

        Like other posters here, this app is for me the best for podcasts, but I too would love the ability to sync across devices and would be willing to pay a reasonable amount for that ability. I hope it comes out soon!

        Just ran into the same issue people having here. Maintaining the same library across phone and tablet. Or just having an account, so when time comes to change device, you could just login and not lose all your subscriptions and history data. Other than that, can't not congratulate you on a great piece of software, times and times much better than anything I've tried before. Thanks.

        If you just allowed us the export the "listened to" list, then we could sync it ourselves with btsync.

        Cloud sync (with login and https) could even mean that someone could write a Windows program to play podcasts on the desktop and keep sync with the phone :D
        I'd just *love* to have some sort of mini Itunes for podcast management, downloading and possibly pushing to the phone.

        Sorry I had to switch to a much urgent issue the past weeks.
        With the increasing number of users I'm having some server issues so I need to rewrite all the server code. This will take like a couple more weeks, then I will switch back to the cross device syncing

        Any update on the progress here with this feature? I too would be willing to pay for this feature!

        This is the feature that will get me to donate for the app. I've tried 6 different podcast apps in a year and this is the front-runner. Now that I have a tablet along with my Galaxy S4 phone, syncing will be the money maker. Gladly sign up for beta. Have you considered using Dropbox or Google Drive to store the data and progress so the contents stay in sync by user choice/control and you don't have to manage storage/files/accounts?

        I was about to start looking for another app to replace podcast addict because of this, but I'll hold off for a little while now that I see this is in the pipeline!

        Would love this capability! Not having it is one of the main reasons I hesitate to upgrade my phone.
