  1. Audiobooks/folder content-set sort by name on import

    For podcasts the usual sort is by Publication Date
    For audiobooks the usual sort is Name Asc

    It would be good if when importing audiobooks/folder content if the sort for them was AUTOMATICALLY switched to Name Asc on import.

    That would save a lot of time consulting help and messing around: enabling custom sort and then going to each audiobook/folder to set it up separately.

    • 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.

        • Fade-out ramp for sleep timer

          There should be a gentle (maybe customizable) fade-out ramp to silence when the sleep timer reaches the end.

                • Alternate podcasts considering channel queue lengths

                  I often use Alternate podcasts option with sorting by decreasing priority and increasing release date.

                  It works well with channels with similar length of their queued episodes. But with big difference of lengths, it has a side effect of prioritizing the short queues. Much newer episodes from shirt queues are played before older ones from longer queues. By other words, shorter the channel queue is, higher us the average item position in the playlist.

                  As a work around, I periodically "reshake" the playlist by turning "Alternate podcasts" OFF/ON and moving current episode to the top again.

                  The playlist ends by…

                  • Center/Focus the selected episode

                    In a list of 300 episodes in can be hard to find where I am at, and I think I need to be in the list view to add to playlist.

                    Double tap hide unhide or something to bring you to your current episode?

                      • 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!

                        • Auto playback progress reset

                          Add a setting, which would automatically reset the playback progress and/or delete downloaded episodes, if they haven't been listened to in more than 30 days and are not marked as a favorite.

                          • Add an option to hide episode covers and/or episode description

                            Add an option to choose whether to show or not the episode covers (if I've shown podcast banner it doesn't make much sense to show the same cover all over again if it doesn't change) and to show or not only the episode title, hiding their description so we can see more episodes per page.

                            • Automatic volume level control of episodes in playlist

                              Episodes from different podcasts are mastered at different volume settings. It would be good to have an automatic volume level control, so that all episodes in playlist play back at the same volume level.

                              • Put an icon on podcasts that aren't part of grouped updates

                                There is a custom setting that allows you to allow a podcast to not be part of the grouped updates. I'd like some kind of denotation on the podcast icon that shows it isn't updated with the others, so I know to manually update it when I want to (maybe the circular arrows with a line through them). This would be for podcasts that aren't made anymore but you'd want to check every once in a while, instead of with the rest of the active podcasts.

                                • Shake to reset sleep timer at any time.

                                  As a podcast addict it took no time at all to decide to purchase your donate version. But one feature I use daily, the sleep timer, could use a small improvement, something I first encountered with Smart AudioBook Player.

                                  Please add a setting to enable the sleep timer to be reset at any point during the countdown rather than having to wait until the timer runs out. I have often found this ability to be extremely useful in the previously mentioned app and would love to see it implemented in PA.

                                  Yours is by far the most used app on…

                                      Google Podcast app has a +30 second and a -10 second button. These are super helpful. Please include in your app which is otherwise much better. Thank you!

                                      • Player keep open after closing the app after the last update

                                        This causes android to accuses Podcast Addict of high battery usage

                                        • Show remaining time for podcasts

                                          Just like each podcast icon has a counter for unheard podcasts, It could be nice to also have the remaining time. The orange triangle with the number in the top right corner could have an additional box in one of the other corners with the remaining playing time (days,hours,minutes)
