Cross device synchronization
Would be great to be able to synchronize subscriptions, playlist, read status, ... between devices
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

Any news on this beta ?

Bon courage pour cette amélioration.
Good luck with this improvement.
I'm having performance issue, so I had to switch to another solution.
Still doing some testing to see if I can finalize this

How is it going with the cross device syncronization feature? Could you add a webplayer to the feature request?
Usually I publish the beta so everyone can retrieve it on the play store (you need to be part of the beta tester group on G+), but in this case it will be limited to a few users first.
I will need users willing to do some testing and to send me some feedback in case they see some speed impact, battery usage issue, bugs, ...
I don't know exactly how I will proceed yet but once the beta is ready I will post a comment with all the information
Will you post the link to the beta here?
Awesome news, good call...!

I hear that Google allows App Data sync with their servers. I would look into this as a possibility for data sync.
Elliot Huffman commented
I will be glad to test it!
Maybe use the user's Google Drive to save the ompl/playlist/read and unread/etc.? Just have the program check the Drive for an updated/newer version of the file. Don't save audio to it though, just the config and metadata. That way, there's no more server work for you, as Google Drive takes the brunt of the bandwidth. Plus, the user will have complete control over their data, and they have it backed up somewhere safe.
This way, no matter what device you're using, if it's online (should be for a podcast app), it'll be able to keep the sync file up to date. If it's not online, then it'll just default to the local copy.
That way, if I have Podcast Addict on my phone, my tablet, and installed in Chrome (it works), then I, as a user, don't have anything to worry about, and there's no central device to worry about.

https://gpodder.net/ will allow you to keep track of your podcasts shows and playbacks, there are several android, iphone, mac, windows and linux applications that do support this service.
There is already a suggestion for this feature
An excellent aplication, with sync feature would be 5* app. Please Xavier do it
I still have a couple releases to deliver will small improvements / new features and bugfix, then I will spend a couple of weeks developing this. Then it will take at least another couple of weeks for intensive beta testing...
I hope to deliver this feature before the end of the year
It has beem several months.. any more progress on this?
