Package and release Podcast Addict for BlackBerry 10
I haven't yet found a podcast app in BlackBerry World that I'm happy with. I just side-loaded Podcast Addict and so far it's working quite well for me.
There are a lot of limitation that makes it impossible to port without code modification.
Because of that I won’t port it to BB10
Yes if I want to port it I need to remove variable Playback speed which is really build into the app. So it will take a lot of time, non regression test and maintenance to make it work.
This app is just a personal project I work on when I have free time, so I don't want to spend this time handling different version. They're still so many things to do with the android version ;)

Limitations with the runtime or something else? I've explored many options and the only two issues I've had are:
1. The variable speed playback doesn't work (trying to use it causes the app to exit).
2. Mic button doesn't work for play/pause.
Ok - I searched a bit more and found the runtime release notes, which note:
"When using Android Video on the BlackBerry 10 Device Simulator, sound will play but the video will not."
Significant for anyone who subscribes to a video podcast.
