Having a computer based version of Podcast Addict to be able to listen to podcast on a computer & keep the podcast sync with android device
Absolutely a premium worthy feature! I honestly moved away from PA for this ONE feature for the last couple months, but other apps just can't compete for the majority of other features. Please make this and take my money!!!

This would be awesome!
This would be fantastic. After moving to work from home, having the ability to play podcasts through the speakers would be amazing. This is the best podcast app out there and this is the only thing it's missing.
Must, MUST, must have this!!! I also think being able to organize, download, etc. in sync would be great while you're at it. But THANK you for the great app so far!
I game a lot on my pc and would love a windows compatible app. The site is decent, but it doesn't always work right. Alternatively I use an android emulator but every single one I've tried keeps shutting podcast addict down after 30 minutes or so. Having a pc app would be perfect.
This would be an absolute dream for hardcore podcast listeners. A PWA would do, even.

I would pay for a subscription if they make this.
Only thing keeping me from committing to the paid version of this as I keep looking for an android podcast app linked to a chrome extension or other browser based player
For this i would get premium

Totally on board
I see this as an excursion on a road of making Podcast addict the best mobile phone podcast player. Remember Winamp? I remeber it becoming bloated and then extinct. On the otherhand, it still works today, or so I've heard.
Any idea if this is being worked on? It would be so helpful given we work from home now
If financing is an issue, I would consider this a payable feature, beyond the removal of ads.
I've subscribed to a lot of podcasts and as I'm in Australia, I cannot get their own apps (and I prefer them all in the one place) Podcast Addict has been the best by far in terms of usability. Though particularly as we're all working from home, I currently cannot listen to my paid for podcasts on my computer with it's sweet sound system, I can only go through my nasty phone.
Which, as I'm working with sound as my job, having to jump between devices to pause audio is an mild inconvenience that over a day does build up to google forums for a fix, deciding it's too faffy, voting for this feature to be added, then going back to spotify with it's embedded addage.
Web or desktop would be delightful, just something that syncs progress and works on PC
Possibly a progressive web app. If that could be done, then the app could run on any OS.
For sharing between devices and computers, we could use a file on a cloud drive. The file could be incrementally updated, in the same manner as Google Office and MS 365.
Yes an Browser or Standalone Software (OS = Win, Mac, Linux) Version would be Nice. Of Course it should be able to be in Sync with the Mobile Phone Version.
Yall are saying it "needs subscription" or "money to cover server costs", but honestly what's wrong with hosting a local server on the Android device itself, so that you can access a web interface through http://<android-ip-here>:1234/web? Much easier. The web interface could even be a simple JSON endpoint, and third party devs can make the apps/websites.

A web app would be nice instead a desktop app.

This sounds like a nice idea but it is going to have to be a subscription service in order to work....

you can apply gpodder.net syncing, that way you won't have to make a complete new application for PC, and still be able to cover all the major OS for PC (Linux, MacOS, Windows).
