  1. Add a way to search settings

    I love that podcast addict has so many customization options, but because of this it can be difficult to find some settings. Adding a way to search the settings by keyword would be helpful

    This will be implemented in v2020.10
    This won’t be in the new version that just started rolling out.

  2. Make the audio mute more gradual for the sleep timer rather than the abrupt high to low, as it is now

    The automatic sleep timer, whilst going through the phase of allowing you to shake to extend the timer appears to go from normal high volume to low volume in one go, I'd like a more gradual reduction in volume maybe even the option for a low short(ding)tone to announce the shake grace period has started, cheers John

  3. Allow for "refresh regardless of podcast settings"

    Hi !

    I'm a big fan of the feature implemented from [this suggestion](https://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/forums/211997-general/suggestions/5309027-exclude-some-podcasts-from-sync-to-reduce-traffic) which allowed me to pare down the podcasts I refresh daily from 91 to 45 (50% improvement woohoo!).
    But the thing is, those podcasts I excluded might still occasionally put up something new on their feeds: bonus content, live show announcements, trailers for new projects from the creators, ...
    To make sure I don't miss that, I'd have to go podcast by podcast through the 46 excluded ones to refresh them.
    Could there be an option I could use maybe every month or every other…

  4. Select Chapters to play

    Before playing an episode (or multiple episodes within a playlist), I'd like to be able to select which chapters within an episode to play (and which to skip). When wanting to skip selected chapters, I have to jump to the next chapter mark during playback in the moment, when a new chapter (I'd like to skip) begins. But in that moment I might have no hand free to do so. So I'd like a feature, that allows me to select the chapters to play (or the ones to skip) in beforehand. This could be implemented with checkboxes in the chapter…

  5. 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.

  6. Fade-out ramp for sleep timer

    There should be a gentle (maybe customizable) fade-out ramp to silence when the sleep timer reaches the end.

  7. Search settings

    I love so much all the settings, but sometimes I struggle to find what I need and I loose a lot of time.
    If there is a search inside the app itself, it would help me so much

  8. Add sleep timer to Chromecast mode

    It would be really nice if I could use the sleep timer when I'm casting to my Chromecast.

  9. 'Always On' Sleep setting per podcast

    There are some podcasts I listen to only while sleeping. It would be useful to be able to enable a setting that would automatically trigger Sleep mode if you manually start playing an episode from that podcast. (I say manual to avoid perhaps issues with playlists)

    The next version of the app allows you to enable the sleep timer automatically based on a time frame.
    That might be a workaround for what you’re asking for.
    For example, the sleep timer will enable itself when listening between 10pm and 5am.
    Let me know if that works for you so I can close this feature request (or not)
    Thanks

    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

  12. Make settings searchable

    Sometimes, one forgets where a certain option is. So index the settings.

  13. Cross device synchronization

    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

    The next version will allow to reorder downloads and to pause/resume them.
    A first beta will be soon available

    Concurrent downloads will be added in a future release

    Since v3.27 the download manager as been improved and now displays an ‘error’ tab that will allow you to see a list of the past download failures, allowing you to retry the downloads without having to remember the episodes that failed to download in the first place
