  1. Allow in-app donations to podcast producers

    Allow users to donate to podcasts from the mobile app. This can probably only happen on Android as Apple is strict about in-app payments. Maybe use Google Wallet, Paypal, or Flattr. If you build the functionality, podcast producers could provide you the payment information.

  2. Add a podcast discovery service, listing popular & top rated podcasts in categories/types - Science, News, Sport, Comedy etc.

    As a big fan of the app, I would really like to see a podcast discovery service. I don't just mean in the way of recommendations (though that may help some), but the classification of Podcasts into different categories and listing popular, 'Top rated' podcasts in different categories/types - Comedy, News, Science, Arts, Music, Sports, Entertainment etc.

  6. Play 'First in playlist', not 'Next in playlist'

    Imagine that you have your playlist sorted by date, and you want to always play the most recent playlist. In this case, then when the current podcast has finished, it should not play the next in the playlist, but instead play the one at the top of the playlist.

    There should be an option to specify this.

  7. Add option to wrap playlist when last item finishes playing

    Some times I want to listen to the last item on the playlist without re-sorting it. Currently the playback will stop once the last item is finished, even if there are elements left on the playlist.

    When finishing the last item, it would be useful if playback could resume from the first element, thus wrapping around.

  8. add a long press download option on the playlist screen

    If I have something my playlist and want to download it I have to dig through my podcasts to find it. This option would save a lot of hassle.

  9. group podcasts so when you refresh you don't wait several minutes

    I'd like to group my podcasts and refresh them based on that particular group alone. e.g. I listed to comedy, news, and coffee podcasts. when I hit refresh it takes several minutes since it refreshes all of them. if I only want to update my comedy podcasts I still end up waiting quite a while.

  10. Add the "Podcasts update circle" to the widget controls.

    This would allow an easier update of podcasts, without leaving the widget screen

  13. add the ability to hide non-audio items, like blog posts. all i want is audio, and most of what i get is blog posts.

    It would be nice if the feeds were separated but many podcasters (even professional ones) seems to mix everything up in one feed.

  14. create a profile that you can save previously read podcasts since its pretty cumbersome when transferring to a new phone or device, GreatAPP

    Maybe you can save the sync or profile in the Google Drive is easily accessible across all devices a user owns.

    This feature has been delivered in v2.0.×. It allows you to backup everything (settings, subscriptions, episode flags, episode progress, playlist, …) except downloaded media files like episodes and thumbnails. The restore feature will allow you to trigger a full re-download of the episodes that were already downloaded on your previous device unless you copied them manually.

  15. Set a custom image for rss feeds?

    The ability to set a custom image as the rss feed to be used for the feed itself and also individual items where image is missing.

  17. Ban that light blue background showing a counter of the unread episodes.

    It renders the counter with it's white numbers on it barely readable.
    Instead you could even save a whole line by combining the counter
    for all available episodes of a podcast with that "unread counter".
    e.g. if there are 20 episodes available and 10 of them are unread it
    could display as 10(20) at the positon where it shows the counter
    with that blue background right now. You would save the line above
    where it now says "20 episodes". Thank you, I like PA!

  18. Add favorite podcasts feature to force selected podcasts to the top of the playlist

    note - this is different than existing favorite episodes feature

    I want to list to my podcasts in this order:
    1-MobileTechRoundup (~60 minutes, updates roughly weekly)
    2-NPR News (~5 minutes, updates hourly)
    3-WSJ Tech Briefing (~5min, updates twice a day)
    4-bunch of other short podcasts
    5-bunch of other long podcasts

    Using the available sort options doesn't allow me to listen in this order (I have been using stitcher which does let you do this). I think having a favorites flag will allow me to use the sort by duration with the exception of playing my selected favorites first.

    I will add a priority setting for every podcast. It will be available by long pressing the podcast and selecting ‘Custom settings’.
    Once the priorities are set, you will be able to sort the podcast list (main screen) and/or the playlist by priorities.

    Edit: delivered in v2.1.0

  19. Allow device to be locked (screen off) for video podcasts.

    Sometimes, we can´t be staring at the screen for video podcasts- when we´re driving for instance. So having your smartphone locked saves battery and avoids unwanted actions (stop, delete, etc)

    v2.3 will be available in the next hours

    They is a new setting to allow video playback to go on when the screen is turned off.
    It won’t be the default behaviour but you’re will be able to change it in Settings/Player/Screen Off

  20. Show podcast size, length, and download progress

    There is no way to tell how long the podcast is until it is download and there is no way to tell the size or status of a download.
