    Podcast Addict absolutely needs this to make it the no-brainer option for synced podcasting compatiblle with Android. The web app can even be simple to start with, offering just the users library and ability to control playspeed. As a web app it would be useable on a massive range of platforms.

    I am sure that given the product you already have, you could easily get crowdfunded or even just get help from members of this community who have the passion and knowledge to do so.

    I came on here to suggest that I a web-based app be built and saw this thread. I certainly agree that being able to use the subscriptions data and what we've subscribed to etc via podcast addict on a laptop / desktop machine would be fantastic and to be able to play through the computer speakers for example (currently I plug my phone in to the speakers but it means I can't get the same fullness of sound).

    I don't think a Windows App would be the best choice though. Whilst many of us (me included) do use Windows, it would still be very limiting to invest all that time in developing just for Windows. The same, or perhaps even less time could be put into developing a basic web interface which could be used on many, many platforms including macs, chromebooks and so on. Obviously you wouldn't download episodes but you wouldn't need to because you would necessarily be connected, which isn't a difficult way to be these days.

    I would suggest that this be prioritised as part of podcast addict's development as it would really give it a fantastic edge and coupled with the very high quality and customizability of the app, it would really extend the potential. Just remember to keep options like default play speed! I always use 1.4x speed as standard which is fine for me to understand and means I can listen to a lot more! Great work so far!
