  1. Multiple custom playlists

    I would love to create multiple playlists in which podcast subscriptions could be added or removed.

    By weary of example, my BBC, NPR, and ABC news casts would go into one called say news, and the longer science podcasts under day science docs.

    It is similar to this post but that is on 2013 and is incorrectly marked solved.

    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. Allow better programmatic control of playlist and queue

    There are a number of intents available for Tasker and Llama (and similar apps) to control Podcast Addict: https://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/217903-how-to-control-podcast-addict-from-3rd-parties-app

    There is a request for an alarm clock feature: https://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/forums/211997-general/suggestions/4448071-alarm-clock

    There is a playlist feature.

    With a couple of more intents it would be possible to implement an alarm clock trivially in Tasker or Llama.

    Suggested intents:

    • Clear playlist. This could be invoked before a podcasts update, and the existing "add to playlist" feature against a podcast and "start playing the playlist" intent then used to play a particular podcast in response to an external event (such as time of day)

    Completed

    =========

    A first beta has been published with the Alarm feature.
    Please join the Beta on the Play Store app page, then update the app to get it.
    I will need your help to test this on many different devices and situations to make sure this works fine.
    For now everything except the Snooze feature has been implemented.
    You can find more details in the Changelog (https://podcastaddict.com/changelog/2021_11)

    Thanks!

  3. 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.

  4. allow to delete episode but keep it in playlist

    sometimes we need to free space and need to remove downloaded episodes that we haven't listened to yet so we d like to keep them in the playlist. this is a pain in the ass to operate right now

  5. 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.

  7. Keep favorites/playback history regardless of subscription

    There have been a few podcasts that I've really liked episodes of add have favorited (maybe bc of a guest or topic), but haven't wanted to continue listening for whatever reason and have unsubscribed. I've noticed when I do this that all episodes of that show are removed from my playback history and favorited episodes. One thing I love about Podcast Addict is it's organization and the ability to serve as a record of what I listened to, so I feel this would only enhance that. I'd love for this to be resolved in a future update. Additionally, if there…

    The latest version has an option to keep all the podcast data when unsubscribing. Only the subscription status will be changed which means that the podcast will stop receiving new episodes. The podcast will still be visible on the app main screen

    That might not be exactly what you were asking but this means that the episodes will remain in the playback history

    Please provide some feedback if this is not what you were asking for

    Thanks

  8. option to disable/enable widget thumbnail

    this would make the widget use less space or give more room for the title

  9. set a specific time for the app to turn on so people can be woken up by a podcast in the morning

    You can set some sort of timer/"alarm" so the app will turn itself on in the morning to wake you up, and it could also turn itself off if you listen to it while you fall sleep so it doesn't drain your battery life

  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. Add widget option to hide artwork/PA logo

    I LOVE the 4x1 widget and use it as much as the player to control playback. The colors of the PA logo and of some podcast's artwork can clash visually with many wallpaper colors and themes. Can you please add an option in the Widget Settings to hide the logo/artwork and replace it with the widget background color set in the options instead?

  14. 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.

  15. Organize Front Page

    I love this app, but the only thing I would wish for is an easier way to sort my podcasts.

    Right now, I have to sort each individual podcast by assigning it a 'priority' number, which gets the job done but takes a long time to accomplish, especially if you have a lot of subscriptions. Would it be possible to have an update so I can simply touch and hold the podcast image, and then have the icon respond by letting me drag it around to whatever spot on the list or grid that I want? Or maybe just have…

    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…

  18. Add a secondary (and possibly 3rd) sorting priority to playlist

    I have my playlist set to sort by priority, and right now that's all I can do. I'd like to be able to sort by priority THEN by date published. I'd imagine maybe a number (1) (2) (3) identifier in the sorting options could be added for this.

    ==========

    Sorry for the delay…
    This feature will be available in v3.38 but only for the playlist

    Edit: A beta with this feature will be available within the hour.
    Please test it and let me know how it works for you so I can customize it before releasing the final version.
    Thanks

  20. Sort Podcasts by Current Number of Downloaded Episodes

    I like to download a supply of podcasts for when I am out of cellular / wifi range.

    If you are like me, would it not be handy to have a sort ordered by the current number of downloaded episodes by podcast?
