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

    This is going to be a requirement soon, and I fear you're running out of time. I'm already looking for a way to seemlessly listen to podcasts between devices - Phone, Tablet, Alexa, PC. You've made a great app for Android, but it's 2018, and you really risk missing your window of opportunity here. I will switch apps over this ability, and I'm certain many others feel the same.

    I'd love it if across device sync came available. Too be honest, it's a bit of a deal breaker of not. I now find myself looking for good alternatives that support that function. Hope to see it soon on podcast addict.

    Any updates on this? I totally agree that a sync would be greatly appreciated!

    Agree with the rest: This is a must have feature. One which I would pay for. Great App. It has changed my life for the better!

    Maybe make it to where we can create an account and log in from multiple devices and have the app synced between multiple devices through a log in account.

    Hey there, your announcement of the beta is now 3.5 years ago.

    Did I missed this functionality?

    Thanks :)

    My Nexus 5X just crashed (boot loop ...) and I don't have a recent backup of my subscription ... Is this idea always open ? If at least we had an automatic backup on Google Drive (like WhatsApp does) it would save me ...

    Please!!!! This would be awsome. I love this app. This would be an awsome way to really make this app the best of the best.

    Camon guys! The sync feature is a must. A long time has past since 2015. Would you please write an update on this? Thanx!

    I really like this application and have been using it exclusively on my cell phone for podcasts every day for several years. My newest job issued me a separate work phone, but they are okay with having personal apps on it. So, I installed the app, jumped into the settings to find out how to turn on some sort of Cloud Sync only to realize - there is none. That is how I arrived at this forum. I really don't want to move to another podcast app, but without some sync feature I will have to continue doing the two-phone shuffle more often that I like. We appreciate the hard work you have put into this and hope this is a feature you can provide in the near future.

    Any updates on progress of this item? This send to be the one major missing feature with this app. With 200+ Comments and 3.5k it seems to be highly desired. Also the latest update is over 2 years old.

    Any updates on this? I feel this feature is the most important.. especially being able to backup and restore from Google drive

    Just tried to use on my tablet. I have the app on my phone and it's great. And like most it's a shame I couldn't sync my phone subscription onto my tablet.

    Syncing would rock - would gladly pay for the product with this feature

  • Nelson A. Filho commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I would love to be able to sync my listening stats, feeds, listened episodes, bookmarks, favorites and so on. I so need this feature

  • Benoist Guillard commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I had to swap device and couldn't backup, now I have to rebuild from scratch.
    I see 3597 people voted for this idea and a dozen of them at least have the same issue as myself, I hope you can make it.
