Backup episodes read to preserved this info in the application needs to be reinstalled
Episodes read are lost if application needs to be re-installed. This information should be backed up with other application user preferences. Backing up only subscriptions is inadequate for recovery.
This feature has been delivered in v2.0.×. It allows you to backup everything (settings, subscriptions, episode flags, episode progress, playlist, …) except downloaded media files like episodes and thumbnails. The restore feature will allow you to trigger a full re-download of the episodes that were already downloaded on your previous device unless you copied them manually.

Is there a way to make this backup process automatic?
Yes you can use the backup to restore the app data on any device.
If you have any issue, please send me the backup file via email so I can check it (Settings/Feedback)
Is this working also to move from one device to another? I tried that and it did not work for me.
It looks like you don't have any more free space to backup or your download folder isn't available. Please check settings/download/storage location

Thank you so much for all your hard work! But I seem to be having a problem with the back up.
When I try to "Backup" or "Full backup" there is an error pop-up:
"Failed to back: Uknwown" [sic]
I don't believe it's backing up.
I'm running Android 4.2.2 with PA version 2.15.1 (build 264)
I love this app and have been using it for ages! I want to restore my phone, but don't want to lose all my podcast listening history. Thank you so much for reading my comment :)

woo, very nice!
I used titanium backup root when I migrated from old to new device, which is not an option for many people.

I'm now interested in rooting my device, which will require a full wipe. This app is the only one that will be painful to restore to its current state since I can't backup/restore which episodes have been marked as read.
