  1. Exoplayer integration

    Using Exoplayer as the internal play for Podcast Addict would fix some issues I have with HLS streams (that I use for Radio Stations).

    One example is that Podcast Addict does not honour the EXT-X-START:TIME-OFFSET tag in HLS level event playlist. I'm sure there may be others.

    Exoplayer is open source and could be integrated into Podcast Addict as another optional media player

    • add the ability to save episode searches

      I often go to the "All" section of the sliding menu and do a search for a keyword so I can add all related episodes across all my subscriptions to the playlist. It would be great if I could save the search to easily run it repeatedly.

      • Show current song on radio station when using chromecast

        When I play a radio station, it'll show the current song on my phone, but once I use chromecast, the screen changes and current song is replaced by (translated) "Casting to Living room".

        FYI TuneIn Radio is able to show the current song whilst casting.

        • Allow specifying the number of episodes of a podcast to be downloaded.

          Automatic cleanup allows one to specify a maximum number of episodes of a podcast to be downloaded at any one time. I would like to be able also to specify the minimum number of episodes of a podcast to be downloaded at any one time.

          • Filter/search by podcast name in the Podcasts overview to jump right to it

            If many podcasts are present, it is a bit difficult to navigate or scroll to a specific podcast (to rely on the podcast icon is not of great help, if in grid mode, at least). To filter or search by name would help...

            • Add Instagram feed

              It would be very nice to be able to add Instagram pages to the podcast list since there are tons of accounts that share short videocasts on Instagram.

              • Number of loop

                I wish the possibility to choose the number of loop when the playlist is set to auto and the podcast is in alternate. I want to randomize my playlist but listen the last episode of each podcast and not in random of all my podcast

                • A search function to quickly find podcasts in your grid

                  A search function to quickly find podcasts in your grid. I have ~100 podcast subscriptions and it isn't always easy to pick out the podcast I'm looking for when scrolling through my grid layout. Would be cool to click on a magnifying glass button at the top of the screen and start typing the name of the podcast I'm looking for in my subscriptions. It would then return the podcast I'm looking for and I could click that to enter the list of the podcast's episodes.

                  • Add scroll position indicator to playlist while dragging an episode

                    When I simply scroll the playlist I can see by the indicator on the right the relative position of what's visible. I do this to locate where I wish to insert a new episode. However, when I drag the episode say from the bottom there is no indicator on the right making it difficult to estimate where I am in the playlist as it auto scrolls.

                    I'd like to have the scroll position indicator available during the auto scroll.

                    • View full size cover art

                      Sometimes episodes have cover art that's a reference to something in the show, or maybe I just want to get a better look. There's currently no way to zoom in or even see it full size on the screen. It's the only thing I've thought was lacking in the app for four years.

                      • better usage of limited space for podcast list display

                        hello and thanks for reading this.
                        for the list of podcasts in a podcast list,
                        there need to be more options.
                        there should be a choice of 5 different 'looks'
                        for example, one option would be to display more text.

                        1. option to disable the display of icons. if all the icons are the same, then was is the point of displaying it over and over for each individual podcast.
                        2. in the upper right hand corner, there is a number displaying how old the podcast is, move that to the bottom row of text, so there is more room…

                        • create a Shortcut or Activity for toggling on/off speed control

                          would be great to have an Android Activity or a shortcut (or even a widget) to instantly toggle between fast and regular speed from home screen or elsewhere.

                          this would be helpful for speeding up the talking portions of a music podcast without skipping them altogether.

                            • Make a widget without album art

                              I know it's minor, but the album art picture makes my fancy customized screen look uglier, and makes the widget bigger than it has to be. Removing the picture from a version of the widget would be nice. Giving the existing art a configurable transparency would be okay too. Otherwise, I really like your widget!

                              • Skip Outro While Casting

                                When I use Chromecast, the intros are skipped just as if I am on bluetooth in the car. However, when using Chromecast, the outros are not skipped. Could we get skipping of last 'X' seconds feature to work while casting?

                                Thank you in advance.

                                  Hi,
                                  Is-it possible to keep Podcast addict always Open ?
                                  My problem is when I shut down my phone (Galaxy S7) or hard-close the app. Podcast addict and my podcast start not automatically again when I plug my Bluetooth headphone.

                                      First, most music players seem to organize music like for old style records. I mean

                                      Album
                                      Artist
                                      Track
                                      That type of music detail

                                      But I keep my music in file folders. Probably that's what most people do.

                                      So when I want to play music I go to the file folder and make selections. Of course the product is for podcasts. But if it can do double duty it's one less app sucking space and attention.

                                      How can I simply navigate, within PP, to file folders? Then select multiple tracks (not necessarily in order)?

                                      The PLAYER function does not solve the…

                                      • Vibrate earlier when sleep timer is about to expire

                                        When the phone vibrates because the sleep timer is about to expire, the volume immediately goes down, making me miss several seconds of the episode. After vibration there should be maybe 15 seconds or so before the volume starts to fade. That would give the user time to reach for the phone and shake it.

                                        • Allow the user to close the player notification with the close all notifications button.

                                          Ever since the recent update that changed the notification behaviour in such a way that closing it is not done by swiping but by hitting the X in the notification the close all notifications button doesn't close the player notification. This has broken my automate script that closes all my notifications, including the player, when I turn off my car and the Bluetooth disconnects.
                                          Please add the option to swipe the notification away back in along with the X button, maybe as a setting if some users don't want it.
