  1. Add feature to download a file from a URL

    Some radio stations require to manually download the podcast file. As Downcast allows, this option grabs the URL from clipboard to download a file from a URL to place it in a podcast folder selected by user.

  2. allow long press deletion to also work when the current episode being played is the last one

    Long press deletion works fine provided there´are other episodes to skipped to. However, having the last episode enqueued, long press doesn´t work. It would be nice to also be able to long press delete that very last episode if you want to.

  3. auto cleanup should not remove episodes from playlist

    I was behind on listening, and some episodes got auto-cleanup'd -- which is fine.. but that should not remove those episodes from playlist!

  4. add a second rewind button

    In the player and widget add a second fast forward and rewind for longer jumps so when I realise I lost track of what is going on for the last five minutes I'd be able to get there faster.

  5. Change Podcast Main Picture and WiFi Queue

    First of all thanks! You've been doing a great job.
    I don't know if this is the right place but I'd like to leave two small suggestions:
    1. It would be nice if I could change the podcast's main image. Sometimes the image isn't good enough and I would like to change it for a better one.
    2. Is is possible to create a episode download queue for WiFi? So I could be able to select episodes during the day, using a mobile connection, and automatically download when a WiFi connection become available.
    That's all and keep doing this great…

  6. ID3 tag fixer

    This isn't usually a problem, but some podcasts (eg "Dr Karl on tripple j") don't have any ID3 tags. Somehow they appear fine in Podcast Addict itself, but when I transfer them to my mp3 player it doesn't show them at all. I can fix this using a 3rd party app but it would be really nice if Podcast Addict could fix the tags automatically (title, artist, album and genre).

  7. Implement a video tutorial

    Forgive me if this is already been mentioned before, but I think a VIDEO TUTORIAL would be an excellent addition. Coming from someone who was/is a complete newbie and didn't know a thing about OPML, RSS feeds, etc. - a video tutorial could have alleviated a lot of trial and error setting up the app and getting it customized to my own specifications. Not to mention filling up all of my memory with useless podcasts and the excessive data usage incurred. Simply because I tinkered with a couple of settings thinking that I knew what I was doing at the…

  8. Add an option

    To set the maximum number of unread episodes globally. For example, I'd like tell the app to mark all episodes older than say 1 month as read for all subscribed to podcasts.This would eliminate a lot of clutter and be handy when subscribing to new podcasts. Or, like me, when first starting to use your app. Then, if I want to see older shows, I would just need to click the eye icon to show all episodes. Make sense?

  9. please tweak the car mode button spacing for 1080p devices

    the car mode is great, but on my 1080p screen (Xperia Z Ultra - my Note2 was too small :-) the buttons are a bit bunched up:

  10. Adicionar opção para atualizar endereço da assinatura do podcast

    Se o endereço da assinatura do podcast muda não recebemos mais atualizações do podcast, ter uma opção para atualizar o endereço do podcast seria util!

  12. Mark as read when skipping to the next episode part deux

    It's similar to an idea already posted https://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/forums/211997-general/suggestions/4175412-mark-as-read-when-skipping-to-next-episode-, but I usually use the bluetooth controls in my car, or headset controls, and don't have access to the phone to do the actual long-press to perform this behavior.

    Or, perhaps it could be an option between leaving it as a long press, or simply any time you fast-forward.

  14. Dont slide the sidemenu in, when trying to hit the progressionbar in player

    In the Player-View, I often want to move the "progression point" from left to the end of the currently played podcast (to skip & auto-deleted the podcast).
    Podcast Addict often recognises this slide as a "open sidemenu". Could you make the point/button bigger? Or enlarge the area to hit it?

  15. Touching album art should always take users to playing screen.

    Currently when you touch the album art on the widget you open the Player screen. When you touch the album art on the playlist screen you get the details screen. When you touch the album art in the details screen you get taken to the website of the podcast.

    Touch album art should always take the user to the Player screen, instead of changing the actions depending on the screen context.

  16. Add sort option: ratio of file size to duration

    This option (or options) allows you to sort by the ratio of file size to duration, ascending or descending.
    When I'm trying to free up space on my phone, I usually want to listen to the episode that will free up the most space per second, ie, the episode with the highest file size:duration ratio.

  17. Delete oldest episodes in order to keep 2GB of space free on the device

    I don't want to have to specify a number of days or episodes to keep. Instead, I want to keep as many episodes as possible while keeping a specific amount of storage space free on the device.

    So I want Podcast Addict to continuously download new episodes and not delete old episodes until less than 2 GB of space is left on the device. If less than 2GB of space is remaining, then delete as many old episodes as necessary to make at least 2GB of space free.

  19. option to show new, not downloaded episodes

    When preparing to go offline, I browse unread and un-downloaded to download the ones I need. I can't find a way to view only those.

  20. Add 3 View Toggles, All/NON-downloaded Unread/Downloaded Unread

    (I was told to post here for vote, by Xavier the helpful developper :-)

    In Podcasts window, View Toggle needs 3 options. [All/NON-DOWNLOADED Unread/DOWNLOADED Unread].

    Since unreads are all mixed, it's hard to find [updated episodes for manual download], also hard to find [downloaded unread to listen]. Both are all mixed in Unread View.

    Blue unread numbers are mixed as well so I have to OPEN each subscription to check if there are new episodes I want to download or not.

    Otherwise this is fantastic. Thank you!
