    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

        A sincronização poderia ser feita pelo Google Drive do próprio usuário, reduzindo os custos de implementação

        This is taking so long, is embedded on so many other apps, and is a stated $ 3000 goal on Patreon, that I don't think it's gonna happen soon. A real shame, as I even donate to the Patreon. But I see no reason to still hope for syncing to happen to this otherwise great app.

        This is a must. All my other apps sync podcasts. I spend last night downloading and choosing podcasts on my tablet. I downloaded it on my phone and have to start over? No thanks.

        gpodder.net support would surely knock this one on the head with zero server costs and allow synchronisation with a PC client.

        I like the user friendly app compared to others that I've paid for and always come back to Podcast Addict and would really love to be able to sync my android phone and kindle fire with my close to 300 subscriptions. I would be willing to pay a one time fee for this feature.

        I really like podcast addict, but this idea was suggested over four years ago and it still hasn't been implemented. I listen to podcasts on multiple devices and this feature is always something I wanted, but now that I have a new phone and have to re-subscribe to each and every podcast, and mark hundreds of episodes as played, I might as well start fresh with an app that syncs between devices. There's at least one other podcast app that supports this (won't name any here), and I'm going to switch to it.

        Have you considered using gpodder.net for this? Some other app use it.

        I've just upgraded my phone and can't find out how to log in to retrieve all my podcasts. Looks like there is no login option. Very strange. I will use a different app from now on.

        This feature is sorely missing in an app that I otherwise love every aspect of and couldn't live without. Any progress?

        It's been a while since you've posted about this but it would be a great feature.

        Please allow us to Sync across devices (or to have a file we can upload to google which holds all our info. Just something that makese it easier to go from one device or share with otherss!

        Game over for this app, sorry. As a paying member who has been patiently waiting for the promised sync very disappointing.

        I would pay a good yearly fee for this feature. I want be able to listen on my car with android app and continue listen on my desktop in a sync way
