    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

        Is this happening? It's been 2 years sense you replied, and looking at the comments, a very wanted feature.

        I'm very interested in this feature. I'm considering getting a device for exercising & listening to podcasts, because I don't want to use my bulky phone. I'd like to sync podcasts between the two. Really don't want to have to look for another app/solution, b/c I love Podcast Addict so much!

        I'll add my voice to those who desperately want this. All I really want is for each device to list the same podcasts as being subscribed to and for the previously read ones to be marked on each device. I would gladly pay another $1 on top of the no ads fee just for that.

        Hello, wondering if this syncing ability will be live anytime soon or if I need to find a different app.

        Love PA but this feature is becoming more and more important to me... Please advise.

        Thank you.

        I am no developer but why build a dedicated new sync platform for podcast addict when two mighty platforms already exist: Feedly and Inoreader. Both have APIs. Both stream audio and video content. Using Feedly or Inoreader web platform for cross-device sync, feed/podcast organization, read status, favorite tagging should be possible. Syncing playback progress could be a problem but 80% users would be happy.

        Feature has been asked for already: Search Uservoice for 'Feedly' or 'Inoreader'.

        Oh wow! I am so excited that you are willing to get this syncing going for your loyal customers. Totally willing to pay extra as have PA on 3 or 4 devices and would simplify my life immensely if the sync feature was available!!!!! Any update as to how soon we can expect it?

        I find myself REALLY wanting this feature.

        Have tried to build some workarounds but failed.

        Really need to figure out how to do this - would be great.

        Maybe it is possible to use the Google account for Android users. If data are stored in Drive, there is no server cost for you for this feature.
