  2. Support Jump Forward/Back on Android Auto

    Hello,

    I see that you have had a number of requests for android auto jump forward/back functionality that were closed saying that the functionality was supported, or that it was not possible to implement.

    I'm looking to move to this application from BeyondPod, which does support in android auto mode both episode skip/restart, as well as jump forward/back, and I believe that supporting both is not only quite possible, but valuable functionality.

    Currently, you have the "..." menu in android auto that brings up the secondary menu, and has limited functionality. BeyondPod places the jump forward/back buttons on this secondary…

  3. Sort podcasts alphabetically ignoring articles (a, an, the)

    Good morning,

    When I think of my podcasts I think of them without the preceding article.

    EG when I'm looking for The Comedy Button, I'm looking at the top of the list (C), not the bottom (T).

    Can the sorting algorithm be updated to ignore common English articles so that all my podcasts that start with A, The, etc, aren't misplaced?

    Thank you!

  4. Ignore listening progress for the first couple of seconds

    This would be useful if you accidentally started the wrong podcast or you lined up the wrong episode in your playlist and ended up skipping it right away.

    After years of using your app I just recently discovered automatic playlists and continuous playback. As a result I have a lot of started episodes with the progress set to ~5 seconds in.

    This might not be an issue for a lot of users, but I really appreciate how customizable the app is. Maybe even let the user decide the starting point for the listening progress.

    Thanks

    This as been delivered a few months ago

    ===========

    Next version will only show episodes played for at least 10s in that screen.
    When you want to skip the end credits of a podcast you can set the app to skip this podcast ‘outro’ (skip the last XX seconds) or you can long press on the player next track button to mark this episode as played while skipping to the next episode

    Feel free to send me an email if you have any question (Settings/Feedback)
    Thanks

  5. Longer episode titles

    The titles of episodes need a second line because one line is not enough

  6. Add playback speed in custom settings

    It would be nice if the playback speed for each podcast could be found in the custom settings of the podcast. This would not only let me know what speed I have that podcast set at but would save a couple of clicks in adjusting the speed (depending on the screen I am starting at).

  7. Change jump backward/forward sliders to be more user friendly

    The sliders for changing the duration of a jump are currently rather difficult to use, and would benefit greatly from being changed to work like the slider that modifies the playback speed so that it's easier to input an exact value. Alternatively, these sliders could also be changed to allow the user to directly enter a number, which is the best option IMO.

  8. Show date last played in podcast history view

    When an episode is added to the podcast history view, show the date it was last played. This would make the podcast history useful as a listening log.

    Some podcasts count as continuing education credit for maintaining professional certifications. This information would be useful as evidence when claiming those credits. Currently, I have to manually track dates listened of certain episodes outside of the app.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. Create Custom Lists

    I often use podcasts for research into specific topics so being able to create custom lists and manually add podcasts to it would be great. The podcast search feature is great but to have additional manual control would be great too.

  12. 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.

  13. When adding local audiobooks, treat each subfolder as a different book (podcast)

    Allow adding a top level folder and treat each subfolder as a different AudioBook. Perhaps treat spillover files not in a subfolder as a 'misc' podcast

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. 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?

  19. Auto Backup the subscriptions list (OPML) to Dropbox or Google Drive

    I accidently format my phone and I lost all my subscriptions, because the (OPML) was on the phone also, so it would be grate to have auto backup feature integrated with google drive or dropbox to automate this task every month or every time I added new channel.

    Edit: Delivered in v3.22.

    The future version will allow you to enable an automatic backup of the subscriptions (OPML file) every time the subscriptions are updated.
    If you select a backup folder synced with Drive or Dropbox, you should get your files in the cloud automatically.

  20. 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.
