  1. Don't download episodes over metered wifi

    In Android 10 it is possible to add a wifi network as "metered". If the App can access this setting, it would be great to have an Option that causes PA to refrain from automatic downloads when on a metered network. This is a vital feature for users from Germany.

    This will be included in the next version
    In order to fully test this please join the Beta on the Play Store app page and then wait for the next beta (Build 20435). It has just been published so depending on the time it will take Google to process it it might be available in the next couple hours or days

    In this version, you can go into Settings/Network and enable the setting that will handle the Metered WiFi connections as mobile connections.
    Feel free to send me some feedback via email

    Thanks

  2. Add Pause / Resume / Rewind 5 Seconds option to Upon short audio notification setting

    This setting would work just like the existing Pause / Resume option but it would also rewind 5 seconds on resume. This would be useful when doing something like navigating Google Maps. The notifications are often long enough that a quick refresher on what was just said in a podcast would be helpful.

  3. Support for WebSub ?

    WebSub (formerly PubSubHubbub) is a relatively new open protocol for publising and subscribing to content adopted by the W3C. It looks very promising. Can we expect WebSub support in PA in the near future or a distant future ?

  4. Integrate with Waze

    Waze has this new feature - an audio kit that allows 3rd party apps to play audio in the Waze app (see https://www.waze.com/audioplayer). Several large players (Spotify, Deezer) have already done this integration.

    As most of my listening is done on the road it would be a great improvement. I also saw that other users had issues with the current situation.

  5. Assume podcast is finished if played xx% (95? 97?) or y minutes-or-less left

    Most podcasts end with "housekeeping" and probably advertisements. When the core content is done, I don't wait for 100% finish.

    But if I jump out, the old podcast lingers, keeps using space, and might even be continued after I finish another podcast.

    And deleting by holding "jump to next podcast" button doesn't work for me - since I want to actually select the next thing to listen to, not some arbitrary 'next unlistened' one..

    For now you can either Long press on the player Next episode button to skip to the next episode while handling the current one as if it was fully listened to OR you can use the skip outro setting.

    This setting allows you to set the number of seconds that will automatically be skipped at the end of the episode.

    However sometimes the end credits can be shorter than usual or even missing and using skip outro would still skip the last XX seconds of the app.
    To avoid this I plan to add an extra setting that if enabled would only trigger the skip outro if the Skip forward button is pressed at least once with the last XX seconds of the file (where XX seconds is the selected value for skip outro)

    For example with this enabled and skip outro set to 5 minutes, the app will only…

  6. Set a priority level only above which you get new episode notifications.

    I only want to have new episode notifications for a select few of the many podcasts I have added. At the moment, it looks like I'd have to specifically disable "Keep updated" on each of the many podcasts I don't want them for, which would take forever and isn't quite what I want anyway.

    I'd like to instead be able to set it to, for example, only give new episode notifications for podcasts with a priority of greater than 10.

  8. Auto add virtual Podcast

    Have an option to select a directory where every folder in it would automatically be set up as a virtual podcast.

    New beta now works differently. When you select a folder containing sub folders, the app asks you if you want to create a single podcast or as many podcasts as there are subfolders.
    If you select the later, adding a new subfolder in your device memory later will not automatically create a new virtual podcast in the app

  9. 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?

    Just a heads up regarding the latest version of the app. It doesn’t provide cross device syncing yet, but it allows you to sign in to your Google Drive account and have all your data automatically backed up to make sure they are safe at all time. It also makes restoring the data on a new device really easy.
    You can go into Settings/Backup to enable this and sign-in
    Thanks
