  1. Change behavior based on Car Mode

    I'd suggest changing behavior based on whether a phone is in car mode or not.
    Maybe add a separate 'settings' section for 'when in car mode', allowing the user to specify things like
    - panel to start up in (playlist/player/podcasts
    - font size
    - display mode

    Many of us listen to podcasts while driving. The UI needs are different in an 'eyes busy/hands busy' situation

  2. Set number of unplayed episoded

    I'm a new Android user coming from iPhone. 1 feature I used a lot on my old player on IOS was to set a number of unplayed episodes.

    I follow 1 podcast publishing 5 new episodes/day, and normally I only listen to the morning episode. This creates a lot of cleanup per day.

  3. Have "delete read episodes" show how many there are

    I only delete episodes using this option and I usually do it when there's not enough storage space to download new episodes.

    After the deletion is done, the number of deleted episodes is shown, which is great. Though, I would prefer to see the number before hitting that delete button, so that I can decide whether it's worth it.

    (This piece of information could also be useful to guess how long the deletion would take:


    • "Delete all read episodes(20 049)"

    -- Ok, I now can expect this to take more than just a few seconds.)

  4. Display MP3 ID3 metadata for Audiobooks

    So maybe this is already a feature and I just can't figure out how to enable it, but it would be great if the ID3 "Comments" field were displayed in the player when listening to an Audiobook.

    Thanks

  5. Création d'un mode clair

    Bonjour,

    Tout d'abord félicitations pour l'application elle est superbe !
    Je me permets de venir vers vous afin de vous suggérer une idée pour l'améliorer : la création d'un mode clair (avec du blanc ou des couleurs) au choix de l'utilisateurs afin de mettre un peu de gaieté lorsque l'on utilise. Le noir partout c'est déprimant surtout lorsqu'il ne fait pas beau dehors 😅.
    Je vous souhaite une bonne fin de journée.
    Cordialement.

  6. Changing the triple dot menu from a drop down menu to a left drawer

    When you're using the player (and to a lesser extent, other screens), there are so many options on the triple for menu (store with check marks and sub menus) that it feels cluddered.
    If it was changed to a left drawer, then you could separate it into sections like: Audio (volume boost, mono, skip silence), Share, Podcast (episodes, description, rate, website)

  7. Permit several virtual podcasts point the same folder

    Permit more than one virtual podcast point to the same directory. So files can be discriminated by tag/name after that. Within the ivoox folder it will be useful to keep listening ivoox originals titles in your app.

  8. Save a dynamic search (parameters and results)

    Let's say I'm interested in podcasts related to someone in particular (e.g. the french writer Sylvain Tesson).
    I can run a one-shot search on "Sylvain Tesson". Fair enough. But I'll always be interested in fresh podcasts about him.
    Three possible improvements.
    First improvement: being able to save the search parameters, in a "search library", where I can easily run again a search.
    Second improvement: having the search results stored, in order to be able to see which podcasts are really new compared with the latest search.
    Third improvement: refreshing the search results when I refresh Podcast Addict main screen. Therefore,…

  9. Set the alarm to play from the playlist

    At 6 am, it would be nice to waken to meditation or heavy metal podcast, what have you. Clock radios suck.

    Version v2020.3 will include an automatic FULL backup feature, with options like time and frequency as well as folder selection for the backup
    You can then use 3rd party applications like folderSync to have the automatic backup folder synced to the cloud solution of your choice.

    An option to Automatically save the backup file to Google Drive might soon follow

  11. Add podcast customization on subscription

    When I search and then subscribe to a podcast I want to be able to e.g. immediately add it to a category of my own. This is currently not possibleb(?). I need to switch back to the main screenn(home screen, podcasts), search the newly added one and then apply the customisation.

  12. Inverse wifi-filter

    The existing wifi-filter requires to add each new WiFi network that is added. I would like to download on any WiFi network EXCEPT one specific one (metered). Could you add functionality to avoid downloading on selected WiFi networks? Thanks, amazing progress so far, long time apostle!

  14. Allow podcast-specific network setting override

    I typically want to download only over WiFi. But sometimes, like when I'm traveling and might not have reliable WiFi, I still want to keep high-priority podcasts up to date. It would be nice if I could override my default network setting for specific podcasts only to allow syncing via mobile data, especially if it were coupled with a qualifier like "if not synced within X hours," so that it would automatically go into effect of I haven't been able to sync via WiFi recently.

  15. Change rewind and forward buttons design

    I would love if you could change the design of rewind and forward buttons to make them look like in all podcast apps because the current buttons look like they are going to skip or return to a different episode.
    Thanks.

  16. Audio normalization

    It a feature that allowed us to normalize audio volume so the volume of sounds were the same it would be awesome and extremely useful because some podcasts have wild volume variations.

    Thanks.

  19. When using the the sleep timer, give the user the option to NOT remove the completed episode from the play list. Just mark it completed.

    I usually listen to an audio book with the sleep timer when trying to fall asleep. Sometimes my 20 minute timer gets me through 3 files and sometimes I don't complete any files. Either way, I have to go back and see what I remember hearing. It would be easier to do this if the completed files were kept on the play list.

  20. Blur podcast art before downsizing it to various sizes

    Podcast episode art containing high frequency information is subject to aliasing, which causes splotchy patterns in the thumbnails displayed in the episode lists and next to the progress bar at the bottom of the screen. (E.g. the crosshatch pattern on "The Weeds" by Vox)

    I suggest you blur the images with a rect or gaussian filter before downsampling to reduce aliasing.
