Have podcasts automatically play the next episodes in a series
Edit: delivered in v3.9
Next version of the app will include a new playlist mode called ‘Automatic podcast playlist’ (at least for now).
This mode will disable the current playlist and all the ‘add to playlist’ / ‘remove from playlist’ menus and buttons.
When selected, this mode will work like this:
Start playing an episode. The app will automatically build a playlist with all the unread episodes of the current podcast. If you press the play button on an episode from another podcast, the app will clear the current playlist and build a new one for the new podcast.
Please join the beta group to test this new feature as soon as it’s available (http://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/253911-how-to-join-the-beta-program). Feel free to let me know what you think about it. Every feedback is welcome.
Edit: a new beta has just been published with this new feature. It should soon be live. Please test it and let me know if you have any issue or some feedback.

If I am listening to "Starting from Nothing" podcast episode 24 I would love the app to move onto the next episode automatically, 25, 26 etc. It would be nice for this feature to be the default when listening to podcasts. I know you can reorder a play list I think that brings some value to some people. If I went out of the way to download 15 podcast episodes I would the ability to listen to them in order. I am really annoyed when the podcast stops playing, for example I go on long drives and do not want to mess with my phone while driving.
I like this. This could be done by playing the next episode if you start playing in the single podcast view.
