    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

        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

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

        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.

        Please please Google Drive on Android devices, I've just lost all my podcast subscriptions, downloaded and read episodes, as my phone died before I could backup :-(

        Is this still being worked on? I think Google drive would work. It works for moonreader.

        This truly would make the app first in class and, these days, is kind of an expected benchmark

        I already purchased the property version, but would gladly purchase a newer pro version for this option, as it would be so helpful to me!

        I'm very sad to say that I couldn't wait for this feature any longer, and I also have moved on to Pocket Casts. I will miss some features from your app, but the sync ability is one of the most critical feature for me, and so I must go. Please note that if this feature arrives in PodcastAddict, I will be back. Thank you.

        I got tired of waiting for this. I understand that Xavier has to prioritize some features over the others, considering that he does not have much support, but this doesn't even seem like its in his radar anymore. I switched over to another app which offers sync support. I really enjoyed this app, and its so many useful features, but with no updates for so long, I don't think suggestions are taken seriously anymore.
