  1. Category Playlist

    It would be amazing if we could set up a playlist of categories. So, for example, if I had 4 categories of podcasts, news, sports, tech, and entertainment, it would play the first podcast episode from each category, then rotate back up to the top of the list. This way, you never get two of the same show, or even two of the same type of show, in a row, with zero playlist management.

    Podcast Addict v3.42 has just been released.
    This new version finally adds support to multiple playlists.

    In order to use this new feature, you can go into the Playlists screen and select the new ‘Custom’ tab.
    Then you can select the category of your choice and listen to it.
    Those default categories are provided by the podcast owner in their RSS feeds, but you can press on the toolbar ‘Category’ button and add/delete/customize them.
    That way you can create playlists like News, Commute, Workout, Audiobooks, SFW, …
    Each playlist can have its own sorting mode.

    Please let me know what you think about this new feature

    Thanks

    =========

    The new beta allows you to play podcasts by category. The UI is still a work in progress but the feature works.
    On the app main screen you can filter by the category of your choice and then press on the…

  2. List and search bookmarks

    Currently you can only access the bookmarks inside its chapter. So I have to remember what chapter was bookmarked.
    It would be great if there's a list of bookmarks (and/or search box) feature.

  3. Add ability to discover podcasts by sub-categories

    It would be great to be able to see sub-categories on the Discover page.

    For example, I would like to see trending, new, and top for 'Places & Travel' rather than just 'Society & Culture'. I don't think iTunes even has this feature so it would be great to have in Podcast Addict.

  4. Allocate more space for episode titles in List View

    In List View, episode titles are often truncated- probably more than half of them on the podcasts I listen to. Moving the publishing date and overflow button down to the next line could make the (otherwise gorgeous) List View a lot cleaner looking. Another way to handle this would be to provide a settings option to not display episode descriptions, making more room for the titles.

    Keep up the good work! I tried everything on Android and Podcast Addict is the perfect podcast app.

  5. One touch variable speed on/off

    I'd like to be able to turn variable speed on and off with one touch. The high-speed selection would be whatever high speed was last used. This would be really handy for getting through commercials quickly, especially in the car.

  6. Make list mode available for radio stations.

    Right now, grid mode is the only option and the station names get cut off. It's also harder to find stations in grid mode if you have a long list like I do.

  7. Automatic priority learning.

    I would like to see some automatic learning with the priority settings.

    Idea for to set up...

    All podcasts get set to 0 score.

    If I choose to push a podcast episode to the top of the queue or choose to start playing a podcast out of order it gets +1. If I listen to an episode in full then it gets +0.5
    If I delete a podcast episode without listening or skip a large amount to the end, then -1.

    Then separate them into bins to set their priority.

    Thanks for suggesting this.
    This is a relyy good idea.
    I will add a setting in the Priority screen that allows this automatic learning behavior.

    It will not work exactly how you described it but will have different actions impacting the scrore.

    A first beta should be available in the next couple of days top.

    Thanks

    ========

    Edit: the first beta will be available in a couple of hours top.
    You can enable this feature in the app Settings/Manage lists/Priorities screen

  8. stop playing at the end of chapter

    You can currently use the sleep timer to stop playback at the end of the current episode, but for an audio book that is 10+ hours this is not very useful. Would it be possible to add an option to end at the start of the next chapter?

  9. Allow to organize live streams and radio stations

    Having all radio stations in a single grid without a way to sort them other than by name can become cumbersome. It would be nice to have an optional list view, sorting (recent, custom) and categories, just like the podcasts.

  11. Always keep a certain amount of episodes downloaded

    If I have say three episodes of a podcast downloaded/queued and I listen to one, I'll have two once it's finished.
    What I'd like to see is a feature where once a certain threshold was reached, it would download the next <amount> of episodes so that I'd always have a certain number ready to go.

    This feature is handled by the new ‘Archive mode which is available in Settings/Download’. Make sure to set Settings/Automatic cleanup/Keep at most setting to a value different than unlimited to select how many episodes the app is supposed to keep downloaded

  12. show size of episodes and total used storage space

    Before downloading episodes, it would be nice to see how much storage space they'll use. It would also be nice to see how much space is used by each downloaded episode, as well as the total, so you can make decisions about deleting things if your device is getting full.

    Edit: delivered in v3.9

    ==========

    Next version of the app will include a new playlist mode called ‘Automatic podcast playlist’ (at least for now).
    This mode will disable the current playlist and all the ‘add to playlist’ / ‘remove from playlist’ menus and buttons.
    When selected, this mode will work like this:

    Start playing an episode. The app will automatically build a playlist with all the unread episodes of the current podcast. If you press the play button on an episode from another podcast, the app will clear the current playlist and build a new one for the new podcast.

    Please join the beta group to test this new feature as soon as it’s available (http://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/253911-how-to-join-the-beta-program). Feel free to let me know what you think about it. Every feedback is welcome.

    Thanks

    Edit: a new beta has just been published with this new feature. It should soon be…

  14. add Mono Audio Support

    I always listen to Podcasts at work and I'm only allowed to have one ear plugged in
    So Mono sound would be awesome

  17. Make PA Donate app installable on Android TV

    First of all, I love your app. I paid for the donate app, but apparently, it cannot be installed on Android TV. So, I am not able to turn off the ads.

    BTW, the PA UI is extremely unfriendly to Android TV (or, I suspect, any non-touch interface). I don't fault you for that (PA is one of the few podcast apps worth its salt that works on Android TV platform), but any improvement you can do would be worth another purchase of the donate app :)

  18. Add sorting option under custom settings for podcasts

    Right now when you choose how you want to sort your podcasts it sorts all of them the same.

    I would like for an option to be added under the custom settings for a podcast that we could sort the individual podcast differently than the global settings.

    Reason being that some podcast I like to sort and hear oldest first but others I want the newest one to be at the top.

    In the next version I will add a setting in Settings/Display/Custom sort per podcast
    By default every podcast will display its episodes using the same order as the app last episodes/downloaded episodes/all episodes/…
    If you enable this new setting, you will be able to customize the sorting for each podcasts

    Edit: This feature is available in the new v2.23.2 version which is currently rolling out.
    The full rollout should be complete in a day or 2

  19. List of recently played podcasts

    A history that lists the (at least 5) recently played podcasts, like you know it from other media player like foobar.

    Once a podcast finished to be played and i wanted to go backwards, just some latest minutes. But I couldn't find it... I happend to have put it some days ago to my player and I have so many similar podcasts I really couldn't the last played one.

  20. Delete episodes

    Have the ability to delete individual episodes off the app so you don't have 200+ just sitting there rather than just hiding them.

    ==========

    Next version will have a new setting in ‘Automatic cleanup’ called ‘Keep synced with RSS feed’. It can be enabled globally or per podcast.
    This feature will automatically delete episode articles which aren’t available in the RSS feed anymore.
    Downloaded / favorite / unread episodes won’t be affected

    Thanks to Daniel for this suggestion

    Edit: I just published a new version with this feature. It should be live in the next hour. Please let me know if you have any issue/feedback
    Thanks
