add automatic backups
It would be great if it were possible to backup the database on a regular basis automatically.
Even better would be the ability to automatically upload that backup to a cloud storage service.
This feature has now been released on the Play Store
This feature would be great!
Automatic backups with automatic upload to GDrive is the perfect combo in my opinion. You can set it up and forgot.
The option to restore directly from Drive on reinstall is also great.
Many thanks for all the work developing the best app.
I see here two things:
- Allow and choose when to do local full autobackups. Not just subscriptions. For instance, every night locally, while charging. It saves (usually) to the SDCARD.
- Google API backup. I have just restored my phone. I previously had the automatic restore from Google Backup, but now it is not present. I guess the dev removed in porpuse. Good be great to have it back.
This would be fantastic either to Google Drive or to the internal storage as my phone backs up to my server nightly. A couple of weeks ago my phone completely stopped working and the most recent full backup I had was about 3 weeks old. If I could trigger a full backup using an intent that would be even better as I could trigger it before backing up to my server.

It would be extremely positive automatic full backup, at least in some specific folder. I've installed Autosync Google Drive and manually back up the application.

just lost 1 years worth of episode read statuses/stars and podcast categories of over 300 podcasts because I forgot to manually back up the database and my old phone died :(
so I give this 1 000 000 votes!!

Yes, automatic backup to cloud would be awesome

For android it looks like this backup could be handled via a google API: https://developer.android.com/training/backup/index.html
Would be great help in case the phone breaks or gets stolen!
It would already help if I could choose a custom path to a folder that is synched by my device. Periodic schedules would be great, too
