  1. 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.

  2. 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

    This will be added in the new version. You will have to go into Settings/Sliding menu and enable the playback history entry.

  4. Episode publication dates

    On the screen that lists all the episodes in a podcast I'd like to see the date of publication for each episode.

  5. 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 :)

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

    Edit: delivered in v3.9

    ==========

    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

  9. How do I find a specific episode of a podcast?

    For example, I can find the "Stuff You Should Know" podcast series by searching for it when the app opens. However, if I wanted to find a specific episode of this series, like "How do Flamethrowers Work?" I have no way to search for one specific episode in the series.

    This makes looking for episodes in larger podcast series, with hundreds of episodes, very difficult. Can we have a search function that lets us find a specific episode within a podcast series?

  10. Global Drag And Drop Priority List

    Instead of setting priorities with numbers in the individual podcast settings, have a priority list in the global settings where we can drag and drop podcasts higher or lower on the list.

    In order to use the current system, we have to remember the arbitrary number we've assigned to each podcast and then go into individual settings and change them all. A drag and drop list is easier and faster.

    Thanks Xavier! You're awesome!

    Edit: delivered in v3.10

    Edit: Please update to the latest BETA: v3.10 build 569 and let me know what you think of the new Priority setting screen.
    You will also find this screen in Settings/Display/Podcasts

    I will improve the way to set the podcast priority in the next version, but because it makes sense to have multiple podcasts using the same priority I’m not sure a drag and drop list might be doable.
    I’ll let you know once the beta is available to get your feedback

  12. listen to podcasts and a music app at the same time, if possible?

    Most of my podcasts don't have music in them so I would like the option to play Google music (instrumentals) AND my podcast.

  15. Allow temporarily 3G download

    If you want to temporarily download a podcast on 3G connection (short podcast/no Wifi connection...), you need to deactivate Wifi download, download the podcast then reactivate WiFi download.
    Adding a "Force download" in podcast menu will be great :)

    Until I implement a ‘real’ download manager, the next version will allow you to long press on an episode in the ‘Download manager screen’ and select ‘Force download’. This will allow to download THIS episode while bypassing the app network settings. This flag will reset when the app gets killed or the if the device is rebooted. If you don’t enable this in for the first episode in the download queue, then it won’t do anything until the 1st episode is downloaded.

    This will be implemented in the next version (v3.3)

    Edit: Delivered in v3.3

  17. Make it possible to cancel downloads even if the subscription was discontinued after download started.

    After I unsubscribed while some episodes was in download queue, I have no way of cancelling the downloads. The files to be downloaded does not any longer exist in the download manager list. But download is still progressing in the status bar of Android when I pull down the status bar to see the messages from various apps.

  20. priorities queuing..

    I listen to 2 types of podcasts. Longer term things which I get around to listening to in time and more time sensitive cast like news which I like to hear as soon as possible. Is there a way to give certain podcast priority in the auto queuing. So once they are downloadedbthey are automatically taken to the top of the list while other podcast run in their regular sequence. BTW thanks for the rapid response to a query in my review. I stand correct and will rw-review.

    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
