How can I backup my subscription & data ?

If you want to backup your subscriptions as an OPML file you can do it from Settings/Backup & Restore then select the Backup entry. The backup file is stored in a subfolder called backup within your storage location. You can press the share button to send this file to your Drive, Dropbox, email account.

If you want to backup the full app data (subscriptions, episode data, playlist, playback progress, settings, ...) go into Settings/Backup & Restore and press the Full Backup entry menu. Just like before the resulting backup file will be  in a subfolder called backup within your storage location. You can press the share button to send this file to your Drive, Dropbox, email account.
In order to retrieve your podcast/episode thumbnails and downloaded episode you will have to copy/restore the content of your storage location into the new device.

Then finally, in order to restore after a factory reset or a device switch you just have to download the backup file to the device, then go into the app Settings/Backup & Restore, press the Restore menu entry and select the file to be restored.
