  1. Search includes keywords in the description

    Hello,
    I really like this app but wish the search function was a little better. For example, if I search for a specific speaker (in this example "Simon Conway Morris") or specific producer ("BBC 4") the search doesn't seem to recognize these terms and won't display results for them, despite both words/ phrases being in the description. I only know they are in the description because in a different podcast app when I search those words many more episode/ podcast options come up. I really like everything else about the app!

    Podcast Addict search engine already uses description to field for the search engine. If you’re using iTunes search engine (BTW the episodes search engine tab is handled by iTunes search engine)
    then I don’t know exactly how their algorithm work. Sorry I cannot be of more help

  2. Add download size to downloaded podcasts

    In the episode list, similar to how it says length of episode, display how big the file is of the downloaded podcast.

  3. Opening on screen of choice - when coming from e.g. Bar Launcher (not shortcut)

    Currently it's impossible to open on a screen of choice when starting via a notification bar launcher (e.g. "Bar Launcher", but there are many such apps out there).

    For those of us who run, this method of opening the app is preferred, and the simple task of sifting through the menu to open the playlist while moving is extremely difficult :(

    The 1x1 launcher shortcut isn't available since it's not a launcher mechanism, so I'm wondering if anyone has a solution, or is this feature worthy?

    Thanks!

  4. TOUT est déjà dans PodcastAddict

    Je m'apprêtais à poster une suggestion d'utilisation des boutons de mon casque, quand j'ai constaté qu'en fait elle existait déjà, si l'on positionnait les bons paramètres dans le lecteur.
    Je vous aurai, Xavier, je vous aurai ! :))

  5. Enhance granularity for filter

    The episode filter as is is a nice thing to have for Podcasts having keywords in their title. But many podcasters are way more elaborate, so it would be great to have the filter also access more metadata of a stream. I see some use <category> of course <description> would be obvious. I would appreciate to have more options in that filter. I have no problem with a low level regex to parse the whole stream, which should allow for quick developement.

  7. Go to podcast episode list when clicking podcast cover art

    When I'm trying to binge a podcast series I want to easily find the next episode without having to put them all in the playlist. When I click the podcast description art it goes to the podcast's external web page. I would love for it to go the podcast list of episodes in the app.

  8. Add GeoRSS support for geolocalized podcast episodes, for touristic/museums guides, events news, etc

    Would be nice to have a map visualization for searching podcast episodes or watching the subscribed ones.
    There is the standard GeoRSS for tagging them.

    I noticed a couple of interesting concept app:
    https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/bmyjg8/new-app-lets-you-record-geo-located-sounds-and-stories-for-others-to-discover

    https://youtu.be/sHKA8VzumOQ
    This last one is more similar to what I think could be more appropriate for your great app. Their problem is that is very immature and lack of the ton of feature PA has.

    The first link is an interesting source of ideas on how to use geotargeting in podcasts.

  9. Add an ption to limit the number of downloaded episodes that show in playlist

    I'd like to have 3-5 episodes downloaded but have a smaller number (say 1 or 2) automatically show up in the playlist. In this way, if don't have wifi access to download for a while I have plenty to listen to but my playlist isn't overly cluttered and I can navigate to different podcasts quickly.

  10. Dismiss podcast suggestions

    A feature to dismiss podcast suggestions that I'm not interested in so they don't show in suggestions anymore. No point in seeing the same suggestions all the time.

    Great app.

    Thanks

    Liam

  11. I think pod cast addict should develop intelligent speaker. Which start broadcasting at specific time And parents had have the full contro

    Some content providers have developed intelligent speakers. But there are tons of continent which is not suitable for the children child.. And parents have no control over the continent.. Pod cast can develop a speaker version of the application.. Which can be controlled where the cell phone.. Then we can determine what coordinates our children can listen to. And it can function a alarm clock.

  13. Mark als played or proceed when download error appears

    I have some podcast where the content ist only available for e recent period of time. After this time a download ist no longer available.

    In the app the episode still appears as unplayed and the automatic download does not proceed with the next episode because the download is marked as an error.

    If the app could check the possibility of downloading and showing only these episodes or dismisses episodes which are no longer available and mark them as played so you don't have to search for an downloadable episode by hand.
    And u don't have to clean ur unread…

  14. Filter podcast search by publication date

    I'm not sure if this is already posted, but I miss the option to filter your search results by release date. For example, if you search for "house music" of no specific podcast, you will find thousands of results, of which only 200 results are shown.
    Yes, you can sort by Publication date, but it will only show the 200 newest or the 200 oldest episodes. And if you search for a specific year, not all episodes will mention that number either. So therefore, I think a Publication Date filter would be useful.

  15. Add a social media section so we can follow others

    This way, we can find new podcasts through people with similar taste; we can easily suggest an episode or podcast to our friends and be updated about trends.

  16. Optionally expand full screen playback when starting a podcast

    Add an option to automatically bring playback window full screen when a podcast is started. The small window down at the bottom of the screen is too difficult to use, especially while driving or at a stop light.

  17. Turn off custom layout on EMUI by default

    EMUI, xiaomi's version of Android, doesn't like it when you have a custom layout. Without rooting your phone there is no lock screen widget. If possible detect this and adjust settings.

  18. Add a different looking Open. screen widget

    I would like to at least change the color of the Open. Screen widget from the orange color to something less clashing.

  19. have a Setting to control volume completely

    At present, there are only 2 settings for volume - one is the default volume, and one is somewhat louder. Make a full control of volume, so the sound would go from very soft to very loud
