  1. Remove the custom playlist

    Isn't every playlist a custom playlist? Why can't I disable "custom playlist"?

    It randomly populates a list and then plays off of that list even if I'm playing an episode I intentionally put in the playlist I actually want.
    Honestly the custom playlist seems like a result of over thinking and its incredibly annoying.

    Please take a look at the FAQ to see how the custom playlist works (Settings/FAQs)
    You will then see that there’s nothing random with this tab content
    If you don’t want to use it you can disable the continuous playback mode from the app Settings/Playlist screen

    Thanks

  2. Skip and delete through Android auto

    I use the long press fwd to delete and skip to the next Podcast a lot. Would love to have the same option via Android Auto as I spend most of my listening time while driving.

    Thanks!

  3. Add "clear unregistered and unavailable networks" from network settings

    In network settings my list of unregistered networks goes on forever (Networks I saw months ago for example are included). So when I need to add a new network I have to scroll through 100 irrelevant ones. Frankly as an alternative "visible" or "new" networks could be in their own or a separate list. Or "currently connected network" could just be right at the top. Cheers. Love the app

  4. List of last played episodes

    I like to have a list of last episodes played. Reason is that I often listen to a longer podcast, eg in bed, that I do not finish. During the day í listen to several other podcasts and like to return to the one I did not finish in the evening. Rather than searching through all my subscription, I would prefer a quick glance at the last run audios. I think a simple, self over writing (roll-over) list of say last 10 pieces would suffice (maybe this could even be configured by the user). Thanks!

  5. Allow access to episode's information window from the playlist screen

    Within the playlist screen, it seems to be impossible to view an episode's description and other relevant information.

    Generally, when I build my playlist, I'm viewing episode descriptions to decide which episodes I should download and which ones I should skip. By the time I get to these episodes in my playlist, I can often forget what a particular episode is about.

    Currently, I have to navigate away from the playlist screen to the podcasts screen, clock the relevant podcast and also remember and select the appropriate episode. This seems like something that should be easily added to the contextual…

  6. Make the settings menu less confusing

  7. Move a button - play buttons further from ads

    I switched to the samsung10e (so this might be phone specific) and the play button on the latest version is so close to the ads that I accidentally hit them all the time. Please move them back up the page (at least for the full art for the podcast player page). They used to be in the center of the screen which - yes is uglier - but is functionally so much better for avoiding ads.

    Thanks!

  8. Create a setting where each user can change the date format displayed next to the episodes

    Different countries have different date format conventions. I'd like to suggest a setting where the user can change the date format displayed next to each episode to match the date format that user is most comfortable seeing. For example, some countries use MM/DD/YYYY while others use DD/MM/YYYY or YYYY/MM/DD.

  10. Add notification tray support for Android 10

    Since upgrading to Android 10, I have lost access in the notification tray, so I need to go into the app itself to pause/fast forward.

    If you’re referring to the app notifications, it looks like they have been disabled. Please go into the device Settings/Notifications/Applications/Podcast Addict screen to restore them
    Feel free to contact me if you have any question (Settings/Feedback)

  11. Smart downloads like Netflix

    Currently there are so many settings for download/cleanup. For cases where you are starting listening to a podcast with lots of episodes, Netflix Android app smart download behaviour would be perfect, a single setting, perhaps an extra one for how many episodes to keep downloaded would be useful too.

  12. 'delete' = 'mark as played', simple and uniform way to remove podcasts

    It would be nice if there was a simple and uniform way to remove podcasts that I don't want to hear.

    Currently I have to use 'mark as played' for streamed podcasts and 'delete' for downloaded podcasts. From the user's point of view, something very similar happens in both cases (the podcast disappears). In the user interface, however, both actions can be found in different places. It should be the same location. Even better, the same action (swipe).

    And if you use the checkmark icon to remove many podcasts at once, you think you can use the trash can icon.…

    Deleting a downloaded file and marking an episode as played are 2 separate actions that produce different results.

    Deleting an episode means that you delete its downloaded file.

    However, if you want to hide an episode from the app you need to mark it as played and then use the toolbar ‘eye’ button to hide played episodes

  13. Filter episode list by Not Played

    The episode list of a podcast can easily be filtered by some criteria (downloaded, playback in progress, already played, etc), but I miss the most a filter by "Not Played" option. That is probably the most useful option when looking for what to listen now, or what new episodes have been published.

  14. Back button while on player page should go to episode list, not home screen

    When you're listening to a podcast, and you pull up the player by tapping the icon or the widget, it seems natural to want to go back to the episode list by pressing the back button. Instead, the back button returns you to the home screen. Would be good if it brought you back to the episode list, and a further back brought you to the podcast home

    Pressing on the back button always returns to the previous screen, even when the current screen is the player.
    However, once you reach the app opening screen, then pressing one more will leave the app.
    If you open the app from the player notification/widget, the player screen IS the opening screen, so pressing on the back button from that screenwill leave the app.
    Instead open the app using the app launcher icon or navigate through the device recent apps

  15. Detect duplicates(rebroadcast) and marked them played

    I would Really appreciate a function that searches for duplicate episodes within a podcast. Several of the podcast I'm subscribed too rebroadcast episodes without indicating it, using exactly the same title. I waste time listening to it a few minutes until realizing it is a duplicate from a month or year ago. If there is already a solution for this please let me know.

    I’m sorry but unless the podcast author uses some specific keywords there’s no way to know if an episode is a rebroadcast or not
    If they do use a keyword like ‘rebroadcast’ then you can use the podcast custom settings screen to set a filter and exclude episodes with this keyword

  16. Sleep timer and end of episode

    I suggest that once the episode ends while sleep timer is on, the episode wouldnt show as if you need to hear it from the beginning again. It should keep the info of the minute and second you started the sleep timer.

  18. Add offline mode to android auto

    When using the app in Auto, it would be really helpful to have the option to operate "offline" - so that only downloaded episodes are shown.
    I have a long commute so I can't stream bc it uses too much data and coverage is unreliable. So, I automatically download several episodes of each podcast. Unfortunately when I try to search by category,podcast, or other categories in the app, it shows EVERY episode which really clutters things and makes it hard to find the ones that don't require streaming. I am aware that there is a "Downloaded" tab, but I have…

    You can set the app to only show downloaded episodes before using Android auto if you want to, otherwise you can open the Downloaded episodes list and play from there. This list only contains downloaded episodes

  19. Output through a sound stretching algorithm

    I love the ability to play at various speeds, but 150% even makes Barry White sound like a chipmonk.

    There are ways to process sound that alter the pitch at the same time as the speed to compensate and make the voices and music sound right.

    I see there are several android apps on google play that can do similar as a standalone processor (search: "sound stretch").

  20. Move app to SDcard

    I'd like to suggest that the Podcast addict App could also be moved to the SDcard. I have always troubles with my internal storage, which is too full. But I have lots of space on my SD card, which is formated as internal storage. Podcast addict has gotten very big (more than five gb) over time, so it would be great if the app would support this feature.

    Sorry but the app cannot be moved on the SD card. This would break most of its feature because of Android restrictions. The app itself doesn’t use much space. Downloaded files can be moved on the SD card to free some space (Settings/Download/Storage space)
