  1. allow multiple playlists

    I listen to different types of podcasts depending on what I am doing. I'd like to be able to separate them so I don't have to keep messing with the order of the list.

    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

    =========

    New version will add multiple playlist support.
    In order to do so you will need to enable Continuous playback mode in the app Settings/Playlist screen

    Then the playlist screen will have a 3rd tab which displays the podcasts categories.
    You can…

  2. 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?

  3. Episode thumbnails

    REQUEST: If a podcast has a customized thumbnail, please use that same thumbnail for displaying that podcast's episodes.

    RATIONALE. Currently (v 2.12)--according to the dev--there is no way to predict what thumbnail will be used. E.g., if an episode has its own thumbnail, that thumbnail may, or may not be used. Likewise, if an episode does not have its own thumbnail and its podcast has a customized thumbnail, that thumbnail may or may not be used. Given that the thumbnails users see 99% of the time are episode thumbnails--not podcast thumbnails--it should be possible for users to have max control…

  4. 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

  5. patreon integration!

    Detect what of my subscribed podcasts have patreon set up, and let me give then money.

  6. 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.

    Edit: Delivered in v3.6.1

    This will be added in the new version. You will have to go into Settings/Sliding menu and enable the playback history entry.
    Please join the beta channel group in order to get early access to the feature and to give me some feedback.

    Thanks

  8. Sort inside a podcast list

    In the list of a podcast it could be nice to be able to sort e.g. from the oldest to the newest

  9. 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

  11. allow podcasts to be automatically marked read after a certain percentage has been listened to

    There are a few podcasts I cut short as I don't listen to the ending portions of them.

    It would be nice to have a setting where they can be automatically marked read after you've listened to 90% or more, with the percentage required being variable.

    Or possibly if there's under a certain amount of time left in them. Thanks!

    Duplicated entry: please vote for this feature instead

    http://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/forums/211997-general/suggestions/4230275-mark-podcast-as-listened-when-is-95-done

    ========

    I will add a new setting to allow skipping episodes outro.
    This will be a podcast custom setting.
    You will have to select the number of seconds to skip at the end of the podcast. Once this threshold is reached the app will consider that the episode has been fully listened to so depending on your settings it will be marked as read, deleted, removes from the playlist and the resume position will be reset.

    This will be release in v3.4

    Edit: Available in the latest beta.
    Feel free to test it and to give me some feedback

    Thanks

  12. add headset button control

    It would be really useful to configure headset buttons, for example to skip forward by double clicking and skip back by triple clicking the headset button.

  13. Set default view to "Downloaded Episodes".

    I would like an option to set the "default view" or homescreen when I launch the app to show only downloaded episodes. Since I have automatic downloads set up, usually this is the screen that I want to see most often, since the majority of what I want to listen to has already been loaded for me.

  14. 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.

  17. 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

  18. Widget transparency

    Allow to select the widget background transparency level

  20. I wish to submit my Podcast

    Hi there,

    Just released my first Episode of my Podcast.

    Could you add it to your database ?
