Audio Bookmarks in the player
I suggest you add audio bookmark feature in the player.
I like to re-listen 2 or 3 times the same part of a radio podcast and at the moment I have to use another android player do audio-bookmarking.
It would be great if I could have all integrating in one app.
Thanks for considering this idea.
Delivered in v3.33
EDIT: I just published a first beta which adds basic support for bookmarks.
You can access bookmark from the player and episode screen.
Long press on the bookmark button to quickly create a new bookmark
Pls send me some feedback regarding this new feature
The new version will add support for notes/bookmarks.
A first beta should be available later this week.
Please join the beta tester group in order to test early build and provide feedback/suggestions.

It would also be great if you had a image and URL markup tag in the bookmark to point to external sources.
I often use bookmarks when a book, picture, site or video are mentioned to create a link and description so that I can see what is being spoken of.

HI, Any possibility to search bookmarks from main menu without going to specific podcast.
Bought the paid version because its the only player with bookmarks. Bookmarks feature seems to only be useful to me if i can view them and search them. Thanks much!

I just updated and saw the bookmark option. This is wonderful!
Is there a way to access bookmarks besides the bookmarked episode itself? Like a bookmark central or something? Also, do I need to keep the audio file in order to save the bookmark?
Nice job man!
The fact that you have bookmarks is the reason I downloaded your podcast player. Thanks for this!
Please take a look at Audible's app - particularly their app's notification panel that appears when users swipe down or on the lock screen.
Being able to bookmark something with a single touch (and rewind/fast forward with single touches as well) is absolutely invaluable for those of us using the app in the car.
Thanks for reading this; I really hope you'll implement it (or at least an option to do it this way!)
It would be nice if there was a setting to toggle bookmarks between a 1 touch and and the name them.
I don't really need to name my bookmarks and when I'm driving I'd like to be able to just touch the bookmark icon and set the bookmark.
Please send me an email in case of an issue so I can help (Settings/Feedback)
Pressing the delete button just exits the edit screen while deleting the current bookmark.
It doesn't create any empty bookmarks on my devices.
Can you please make sure you're using the latest release from the Play Store?

Just tried adding a bookmark and in the edit-screen immediately deleting it.
Expected result: Closed edit-screen and no bookmark created.
Actual result: Empty bookmark was created. Need to edit the created bookmark and delete it.
but you should do it from the Google Play Store it should be easier
Hi xavier, how can i join beta tester group to try this feature and provide feedback
1. Music title/Time is good and maybe even by
2. Title given to the bookmark.
No 2 becomes relevant if you are listening to a series of podcasts and there are various topics interspersed and you want to add titles to different topics throughout the series. If you name the titles correctly yourself sequentially , you can see which track and time you can find each topic you've named it in.
I've noticed that sometimes if you open up podcast addict for the first time to play the first selected track you want to listen to .... The bookmark function is disabled. If you start and stop the track only then you can access the bookmark option. It seems to happen randomly though. the bookmark option is not consistently enabled.
Bookmark/Notes can be added to episodes.
I will add later an optional entry in the navigation sidebar to see the bookmark list and filter it by podcast, but I didn't find any proper way to display those bookmarks.
Maybe sorting them by creation/update date might be the solution
The bookmarks works but it only displays bookmarks which you add to the current music track. If you change to anotherr track, the bookmarks you added to the previous item do not show.
When you leave that track and go to another track, the bookmark is gone. If you then go back to the track that you initially added a bookmark to, all the bookmarks are there. If you add bookmarks to another track, it does remember it to but you have to be in the track to see which bookmarks were added.
In principle it works. Hope you can amend it so that you have a feature that no matter which track you listen to, it shows all the bookmarks you added to onto all other tracks you had on podcast addict.
There are some stuff that I would like to add a bookmark to so that I can reference it in future without having to go through all the tracks individually and figure out where I placed what bookmark.
Sorry about the delay.
I don't know when the official version will be released, but half the work is done for the beta.
I will try to publish the beta in a couple of days.
When will the podcast addict version with bookmarks be released?
I'm afraid the feature will be way more basic than that.
You will be able to add notes associated to playback position and that's almost it.
I might add a search feature & export feature in the future, but for now it will be quite basic
Use Google Bookmarks as a reference:
Ability to do a Keyword search from the bookmark name AND from the keywords/labels added. Also, ability to search podcast by date/ within a period of time would be nice too.
Lastly, and perhaps most important, ability to group bookmarks by folders. Folders make organizing bookmarks very easy.
If it is implemented right, definitely will be a Game Changer for podcast apps.
I would be happy to be able to leave a notation on the entire episode even if it couldn't Be at a particular spot
I Xavier. Thank you for your great work.
I would like to add custom chapters or/and bookmarks.
Thank you again!
