    Unfortunately, it looks like in order to be able to connect and stream to a Sonos device, the content would need to be hosted on Podcast Addict Servers. Because of this restriction, this feature won't be available in Podcast Addict...

    The app doesn't handle the BT connection. Once you set the connection in your device settings, then the app will play podcasts using whatever BT receiver is connected. For Sonos, this is different, because they don't use any open standard. They require the use of their own SDK which is only available to their partner for now.
    So for now only 'big companies' have access to it...

    Unfortunately after checking this, Android doesn't allow to customize progressbar color in widget at runtime. This can only be hardcoded into the app...

    The cleanup feature only deletes unused artwork files. It won't clear the one used by your podcasts/episodes.
    Most devices today have a FULL HD device and many even have a 2K/3K or even 4K screen. This means that artwork files cannot be resized to 200x200 or even 600x600 on every device.
    Also in order to resize the file the app would still need to download the original file first which means that this won't save any data.
    BTW you can enable artwork file download over WiFi only in the app Settings/Network

    @pd

    Unfortunately it looks like they are only listing partners app from big brands.Podcast Addict will keep playing until another app asks for audio focus. Depending on the audio focus request type it will then automatically resume or not when retrieving focus.
    Please send me an email at (podcastaddict@gmail.com) so we can discuss this more easily.
    Thanks

    You can use the 'Duration' menu in the playlist screen to get this information

    You can already do this. Open the player screen then select the Share menu and press on 'Position in episode'

    @Mike Hull when you enable the loop mode, the app doesn't do the post processing anymore (mark as read, deletion, remove from playlist, ...)

    @Anonymous

    You can disable the playlist to do so, or start playing an episode with the Sleep timer enabled with 'stop at the end of the episode'

    You can long press on the player 'next episode' button to have the current episode deleted while skipping to the next one

    The toggle intent will resume playing the last played episode. If it was a radio station then it will start its live stream playback

    @Jose Marques
    This feature request has no status. It has never been 'under consideration' ;)

    Sorry about that, but I don't have time to develop the app for new operating system. Support takes time, bug fixing takes time, implementing important missing features in the app takes time, adapting the app to new Android version & devices (Android wear, auto, tv, cast, home, ...) takes time...

    I'm sorry but there won't be any "computer version" of the app any time soon. I might develop a web app in the future but there won't be any windows/mac version of Podcast Addict.

    Thanks for your understanding

    @Jaro Black you can already do so by setting the Skip outro parameter in the podcast custom settings

    This doesn't use any storage space. This is just a list of episode title extracted from the database. Unless you keep episodes as downloaded, displaying all episode title won't use any space

    @Sean

    This is an Android bug, because it only affects a few users and always when starting playing via Bluetooth.
    The app doesn't manage the connection and you will never experience this while listening on the device speaker or with a wired headset. Also you can enable the playback speed and you will see that it doesn't work at all like what you're experiencing when this issue occurred. The app playback speed feature doesn't change the voice pitch. Sorry I cannot be more helpful

    @Anonymous

    Unfortunately, there's nothing I can do about this as MixCloud doesn't provide any RSS feed and doesn't authorize the use of their API for an ad supported or paid app. Unless they change their Terms of Service this cannot be implemented

    The app allows you to subscribe to any existing RSS feed.
    If this service provide one, then you can subscribe to the podcast, otherwise you won't

    @Neil G

    I understood your original feature requests. I was answering the latest comment in the Thread. Unfortunately your issue is really specific and unless the podcast owner use the exact same unique ID for episodes across different thread this won't be possible

    @Anonymous
    If you see duplicated entries in a RSS feed it means that the podcast owner doesn't follow RSS specs and is updating existing episodes Unique Ids.
    This issue can only be prevented by the podcast owner. He/she need to follow the specs and NEVER update existing episode unique ID

    @Ryan Grange
    You can disable the statistics in the app settings if you want to, but statistics won't use much data.
    My guess is that you might be facing the infamous Google Play Services data drain issue. Since a couple of weeks, the last version of the Google Play Services seems to use a lot of cpu and data on some devices to display the banner ads. As a workaround you can switch to the interstitials display mode in the app settings. Hopefully this will soon be fixed.

    Those information are available in the Privacy policy available on the Play Store page, on this website and from within the app Settings menu.
    On the server side there's a lot of post processing to remove non pertinent information so they cannot be shared.

    Everytime an episode is downloaded or streamed it increments a counter on the server, which will allow me soon to display new episodes, trending episode, ... and to share those numbers with the podcast owner. This is just incrementing a counter
    without sending any personal information

    There's absolutely no data sending and there never will be as explained in the Privacy policy. Those data are just there to add more features in the app in order to improve podcast discovery which isn't so great for now.

    If I wanted more money like you suggest the first thing I would do would be to require more permission like access to localization, contact information which would immediately boost the ad revenue by A LOT !
    But I will never do that.

    Why are you saying the data isn't anonymous ?
    I can assure you I don't access any personal information (check the permission), so I have nothing personal to share ;)

    I didn't reject and close your feature request so I'm not saying it won't be done, but for now I'm working on more 'important feature', so I won't consider it before being done with those features which to be honestly will take some time.

    If you want to I can build a specific APK with those upload disabled (no new settings, no tuning of any screen), but you will then have to disable Play store update to avoid getting future update of the app for now.
    Is so please let me know by email (podcatsaddict@gmail.com)

    Thanks

    Xavier

    Sorry but those information allows to create the Top podcasts list and recommendation. I will soon be able to add new features like new episodes, trending podcasts/episodes, ... and so on thanks to those anonymous informations.
    I can also send statistics like : subscription #, download #, streaming # to podcast owner who ask for these information

    Can you please give more detail about this so I can understand what you're asking. Feel free to use a real example.
    Thanks
